MANILA, Philippines - Actress Heart Evangelista said she has no ill-feelings against her former boyfriend Jericho Rosales.
In an interview abs-cbnNEWS.com, Evangelista said they have already forgiven each other and are doing their best to live separate lives.
Rosales and Evangelista dated for 3 years before they split early this year.
"We are happy. We've forgiven each other. We are really good, but we just need to do what we need to do, maybe from a distance for now. Admire each other from a distance," Evangelista said during the press conference of Dolphy Quizon's upcoming film "Nobody, Nobody But Juan", in which she stars.
Can't be friends
The actress had previously revealed that she "cannot be friends with the actor (Jericho)", prompting rumors of ill feelings between the ex-couple.
In a 2008 interview with abs-cbnNEWS.com, Evangelista said that there was a third party involved when the pair broke up. Rosales later denied this, saying Evangelista was fed with lies.
Evangelista told the news site that though they are civil to each other now, it might take a long time before they can be good friends again.
"Wala ka nang magagawa, time heals all wounds, so yeah time talaga. (You can't do anything. Time heals all wounds, just time)," Evangelista said.
Single and busy
Currently, Evangelista is single and busy with numerous showbiz projects. She stressed that she's not yet ready for a boyfriend.
"Hindi ko pa alam. Parang ayaw ko. Maghihintay ako kung nasaan ako ngayon. Itutuloy ko ang buhay ko at darating na lang siya," the actress said.
(I don't know. It's like I don't want a new boyfriend. I will just wait at where I am right now. I will just live my life and a man will come.)
Aside from "Nobody, Nobody But Juan," Evangelista is also part of Regal Film's "Mano Po 6."
She also stars as "Jessie" in the Philippine adaptation of the hit Korean series "Full House."
