MANILA, Philippines – John Lloyd Cruz said that there is no issue between him and former girlfriend Shaina Magdayao, particularly when he guested on the show Nathaniel, which Shaina is part of .
In an interview with reporters at the One More Chance DVD and book launch Friday, July 31, John Lloyd said that they have moved on.
“Wala na naman iyon, we’re all grown ups. Matagal na iyon at saka dapat wala naman talagang issue…,” he said.
That’s nothing, we’re all grown ups. That was a long time ago and to begin with there is no issue…)
“Actually hindi ko naisip na parang ‘Oops! teka lang, nadiyan si Shaina.’ Kasi parang wala naman talaga iyon eh hindi na naman siya…nung pagdating ko, hindi ko siya nakita, siya pa yung nag-welcome sa akin sa set nila,” he added.
(Actually I never thought like, ‘Oops wait, Shaina is there.’ Because there’s really nothing to it …when I arrived on the set, I did not see her and she was the who welcomed me in the set.)
John Lloyd and Shaina became a couple sometime in 2010 and parted ways in 2012. John Lloyd is currently in a relationship with actress Angelica Panganiban. (READ: 9 PH celebrity breakups: Where are they now?)
Nathaniel and working with Piolo
As for working with the cast of Nathaniel, John Lloyd said he was fortunate to be part of the show as a guest.
“Sobra ako nag-enjoy doon. Sobra akong nag-enjoy, napakabait, napakagaan nila katrabaho. At saka may respeto sila sa mga artista, sa mga tao nila and it’s the kind of set na gusto mo mapabilang, kasi hindi lang siya dahil parang yung show tungkol sa kabutihan, sa pagasa, meron siyang cliches kung iisipin pero pag nandoon ka sa set nila, napakagaan, napakasaya nilang kasama,” he said.
(I really enjoyed working with them. I really enjoyed it, they were nice, it was great to with work with them. And they respect the actors, their people and it’s the kind of set you want to be part of, because not is only the show about doing good, having hope, there may some cliches if you think about it, but if you are there in the set, it feels light, happy when you are with them.)
Don’t get me wrong, hindi naman sila parang mga godly, mga santo, santa doon eh pero napakagaan, napaka fluid ng trabaho, kaya ako masuwerteng-masuwerte na napasama ako, naexperience ko yung show na iyon,” he added.
(Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like everyone’s a saint there, but it feels light, the work is very fluid, that’s why I’m very fortunate I was part of it, that I experienced that show.)
He also said that he enjoyed working with Piolo Pascual in the upcoming movie directed by Lav Diaz.
“Yeah, actually tapos na yung pelikula namin. Ganda, ganda yung naging experience pareho kami nagkaroon ng mutual understanding ni Piolo,” he joked.
(Yeah, actually the movie is finished. It was beautiful, the experience was nice as Piolo and I had a mutual understanding.)
