Bela Padilla's love life inevitably became the center of discussions while making the promotional rounds for her latest movie, Meet Me In St. Gallen, with Carlo Aquino. The 26-year-old actress, screenwriter, and producer recently sat down with Boy Abunda to talk about her rumored romance with former co-star Zanjoe Marudo.
In the show, Bela was asked, "Tapos na ba ang kabanata ng iyong buhay kay Zanjoe Marudo?" She replied quickly, "Hindi ko alam, Tito Boy. Right now kasi naging parang ano ako, free spirit. I don't belong to anywhere and I don't belong to anyone. I'm just very happy right now."
Bela and Zanjoe have been rumored to have formed a special friendship while taping for their television show My Dear Heart. In the past, the two drew a lot of attention and fueled rumors about a romantic relationship.
In a follow-up question, Bela was asked if their friendship was a serious one. She answered, "Definitely, it was easier when we were taping ng My Dear Heart. Kasi siyempre magkasama kayo every day. And we both got so busy, and I've watched and read his interviews. He was very vocal naman that he is not ready right now and I respect that."
So, did they get to a point where their relationship became something more than friendship? She replied, "Probably whatever should've happened, didn't."
Ending the conversation, Bela shared that she is currently single but hinted at something that's making her happy right now. "Baka maudlot," she closed.
