MANILA, Philippines - Malaysian actress Carmen Soo denied rumors that she is dating Bianca Gonzalez’s former boyfriend, director Lino Cayetano.

Reports claimed that Soo and Cayetano were spotted holding hands while jogging around the campus of University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City.

Soo told “SNN: Showbiz News Ngayon” that she and the young director are just good friends.

"I was running, walking, exercising. He is a very nice guy, not assuming," Soo said.

The actress, who is an ABS-CBN contract star, merely dismissed the intrigue, saying it is part of her job as an artist.

"I understand that being in this industry you can't escape being seen with one man or in a group. It is so easy to point a finger that there might be something going on. It's unavoidable,” she said.

"I think people should understand that I'm new in this country and I'm trying to make friends," Soo added.

The actress was also romantically linked to Jericho Rosales and John Lloyd Cruz.
