MANILA -- Bea Alonzo recently revealed in a television interview that Jericho Rosales is the reason why she wanted to be a celebrity.
And on Friday's episode of "Magandang Buhay," Rosales reacted to Alonzo's statement, saying he is "proud and honored" to have the actress as his fan.
In the video message aired during the show, Rosales described Alonzo as one of the "gems" in the local entertainment industry.
The actor went on to ask her if they can do a project together: "You know what, marami akong naririnig, pero ito na lang ang sasabihin ko: 'Bakit hindi na lang tayo gumawa ng project together?' I'm sure that will be fun."
"Wishing you all the best and I will see you soon," the star of the primetime series "Halik" added.
Alonzo, for her part, could not help but gush over Rosales. "Nahihiya ako kasi matagal ko nang kinikimkim 'yan eh. Ngayon, parang out na 'yung secret. Nakakahiya. Ang guwapo ni Echo (Rosales). Kristine (Hermosa) and Echo fan ako talaga," she said.
"Sana nga, sana finally magkatrabaho kami," she continued. "Nakatrabaho ko siya dati sa Pacquiao movie and nag-guest siya sa 'I Love Betty La Fea.' Gusto ko naman kapag nagkatrabaho kami one day, ay original story. 'Yung iki-create namin ang characters."
