MANILA - Actress Jessy Mendiola said she's happy that her former boyfriend, actor JM de Guzman is finally back to work.

In an interview on Wednesday at the launch of LINE Premium Call, Mendoza said she doesn't want to dwell on the past.

"Basta masaya ako na nakabalik na siya kasi matagal na din naming sinasabi na sana makabalik na siya. Now, that all is well ay huwag na lang nating balikan yung tapos na," Mendiola said when asked about de Guzman's admission that he used illegal drugs.

Asked if she feels vindicated that de Guzman finally admitted that she was not the reason why he got depressed, Mendiola replied: "Walang ganun. Pero, nasabi na niya yon so OK na din yon, huwag na lang nating balikan. I'm happy for him. He looks really well. Napanood ko kasi ang interview and I'm happy na ganoon ang nangyayari sa kanya ngayon. He deserves to be back in showbiz."

Mendiola said she's also open to possibility of working with de Guzman in the future.

"Why not? I mean it's still work. Magaling po siyang aktor kaya gusto ko po siyang maka-trabaho," the actress said.

Mendiola is currently in a relationship with a non-showbiz boyfriend while de Guzman will return to TV screens on an episode of "Ipaglaban Mo" on August 16.
