It’s been quite the roller coaster ride for Enrique Gil this past year, with him headlining one of the biggest issues of 2015 with his drunken tirade involving Jessy Mendiola in September.
Still, the actor has much to be thankful for ‘cause his onscreen partner Liza Soberano stuck by him through it all in spite of the whole controversy.
“I made a mistake. Si Liza, kasama ko siya nun… kilalang-kilala niya ako bilang tao. She was there, she saw everything. Kung hindi okay, di sana dapat di kami okay ngayon. She was beside me the whole time, I’m just thankful for that,” Enrique tells PEP.ph.
More importantly, though, his fans never gave up on him.
“Ang mga fans naman, kilala nila ako, everybody knows who I am. Sobrang nagulat sila, ‘Seryoso, totoo ba 'yan?’ Maraming nagalit sa mga stories that came out, all of them had my back naman; it didn’t affect my fans. They are super supportive. Kilala talaga nila ako, every taping nandun sila at kasama ako. Ever since, nung nagsisimula ako, kasama ko sila.”
Enrique and Liza starred in the box office hit Everyday I Love You which was released following the controversial incident.
