MANILA -- Elmo Magalona, who stars in the upcoming series "Born for You" with new leading lady Janella Salvador, has no intentions of keeping his relationship with Kapuso actress Janine Gutierrez a secret.
In an interview on Tuesday night, Magalona said he is confident that his personal life will not affect his onscreen partnership with Salvador.
"I don't want people to see me as fake. I want people to see the real me," Magalona told reporters after a press conference for "Born For You."
The actor said that even before they started working on "Born for You," he already told Salvador about Gutierrez.
"First time pa lang kaming nagkakilala eh sinabi ko sa kanya. At sinabi ko sa kanya na there's nothing to be worried about because on my part ako na mismo ang nag-open up and I did what I had to do. Ako na ang nagsabi talaga," he shared.
Magalona also noted that Gutierrez has been paired with other actors in her projects.
"So kung ano 'yung nararanasan ko ngayon ay nararanasan din niya. So no conflict at all, we both support each other," he said.
For her part, Salvador, who already met Magalona's girlfriend, said she would have done the same if she were in the same situation.
More than feeling anxious, Magalona is more excited, especially now that his debut series with ABS-CBN will already air this month.
"There's (pressure) but more of excitement and more of the trust that Dreamscape gave to us. Reading the script pa lang, we started to fall in love with the characters," Magalona said.
