Angelica Panganiban opens up about breakup with John Lloyd Cruz
MANILA, Philippines – It has been a few months since actress Angelica Panganiban broke up with fellow actor John Lloyd Cruz.
While Angelica admitted that the thought of their former relationship occasionally saddens her, she said that she's doing better. On Sunday, May 22, during her appearance in Gandang Gabi Vice, she was asked by Vice Ganda how she is doing now.
"Nowadays, I'm kinda super okay," she said.
Vice noticed that Angelica was wearing a key pendant. She responded with a hugot line: "Ni-lock ko na yung puso ko. (I have locked my heart)"
As to whether she has recovered, Angelica said in jest, "no," but later said that she has slightly moved on.
"Mga four hours na akong 'di umiiyak. (I haven't cried in 4 hours)," she quipped.
"Minsan kasi, e... sikat, di ba? Ang daming billboard, kapag nakita ko, maiiyak na naman ako ganun. (Sometimes... He's famous, right? He has so many billboards, and when I see those, I just cry.)
“Paglabas ko, makakakita na naman ako ng billboard. Ayan na naman tayo. Magmu-move on na naman ako,” she said.
(And then when I get out, I'll see billboards again. There we go again. I'll have to move on again.)
Because of what she went through, Angelica suggested that she would rather not date someone from showbiz.
“Lesson learned talaga, huwag sikat. Kung gusto mo ng artista, yung laos o kaya yung wala nang direksiyon," she joked.
(Lesson learned, really, is that he should not be famous. If you still want to go out with somebody from showbiz, he should be a has-been or someone who has no direction.)
During the interview, Angelica said that while her relationship with John Lloyd did not work out, she is not bitter about it. She also said that they have remained friends and shared that they text each other sometimes.
She also said that she had learned to be positive despite the breakup.
“Kasi hindi niyo na na-save ang relationship niyo as a couple, why not i-save niyo ang relationship niyo bilang magkaibigan?" she suggested.
(Since you were not able to save your relationship as a couple, why not save your friendship?)
Angelica also had a message for those who had been through a breakup to think of the happy moments instead.
"Pero lagi niyong iisipin kung bakit naging ganun kasakit – kasi naging ganun ka kasaya," she said. "At yun ang nagma-matter, e, yung pinagsamahan niyo, yung saya, respeto na ibinigay ninyo sa isa't isa."
(Always think that it's that painful because that's also how much it also made you happy. This is what matters: what you went through – the joys and the respect that you gave each other.)
When Vice asked which among her past relationships that made her cry the most, Angelica admitted that it was with Derek Ramsay. She was together with him for 6 years.
“Ay, kung iyak yung pag-aano, kay Derek talaga, anim na taon niya akong pinaiyak, e." (If it boils down to crying, it would be with Derek because I cried during those 6 years with him.)
"Dito, minsan lang naman niya akong pinaiyak. Ganyan," she said. "'Pag sobrang sakit na talaga. Tapos yung 4 years, masaya kami ganun."
(With this [relationship], he only made me cry sometimes – when it was just very painful. But for those 4 years, we were mostly happy.) – Rappler.com
