MANILA -- Despite their apparent affection for each other, Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson are no longer a couple -- at least for now, according to the "Kasal" actress.
Alonzo and her leading men in the Star Cinema production, Paulo Avelino and Derek Ramsay, were taking turns answering whether they're ready to get married (after the film's title), when the 30-year-old actress made the candid admission.
"Hindi sa ngayon," Alonzo told ABS-CBN News' MJ Felipe on Tuesday, when asked if she and Anderson are still together.
Prompted to clarify if she is single, Alonzo answered: "Technically. But of course we're talking, we're okay."
Avelino, who was next to answer the question on being ready for marriage, quipped that Alonzo's situation seems complicated.
To this, Alonzo shot back: "Magulo talaga, huwag niyo intindihin! Bakit ba? Akin 'yun, e!"
Interestingly, in an episode of the morning talk show "Magandang Buhay" aired Tuesday, Alonzo received a handwritten letter from Anderson, who referred to her as his "teenage crush."
Referring to Anderson during her interview, Alonzo said: "In fairness mapadala siya ng bulaklak at ma-note. Thank you, thank sa letter and thank you for always being there."
It is unclear whether the "Magandang Buhay" episode with Alonzo was taped before or after the Kapamilya star became "technically" single.
Short-lived sweethearts until they parted ways in 2010, Alonzo and Anderson re-connected romantically in 2016 when they were paired in the big-screen romcom "How to Be Yours."
Since then, they had been rumored to have reconciled, until early this year, when Alonzo sparked rumors of a breakup after she un-followed both Anderson and his "My Perfect You" leading lady Pia Wurtzbach on Instagram.
Alonzo and Anderson, however, patched things up eventually, with the 29-year-old actor saying the temporary rift was caused by a misunderstanding. He also cleared Wurtzbach's name amid rumors she had a part in the quarrel.
Prior to sharing her status with Anderson, Alonzo said on Monday she feels no pressure when it comes to tying the knot at a certain age.
"Ako, siguro, may kanya-kanya tayong timeline, 'no. I try not to get affected sa pressure na binibigay sa akin ng society. May kanya-kanya tayong journey, e," she said.
