MANILA - Julia Montes will not confirm nor deny whether she is the girlfriend of Coco Martin, her erstwhile leading man on the small and big screens.
The 22-year-old actress was asked this during a guest appearance on "Magandang Buhay," with host Melai Cantiveros noting recent revelations about Martin's supposed relationship status.
Pointing out that Martin's "Ang Panday" co-star Kylie Versoza had recently said the actor is taken, Cantiveros directly asked Montes whether she is the girlfriend in question.
Montes, as is her tendency whenever the topic is brought up, gave a vague answer. This, she similarly did in a separate interview about her own relationship status.
First paired onscreen in 2012 via "Walang Hanggan," Montes and Martin have been constantly linked with each other romantically, but neither of them has ever directly confirmed being together.
