ICYDK, Enzo recently won Best Supporting Actor at the 69th Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences (FAMAS) Awards for his role in He Who Is Without Sin. When asked about who he wanted to acknowledge for his recent win, he mentioned his girlfriend Michelle Vito alongside his family members.
"Si Michelle talaga one of the big reasons why I strive to become a better person every day, holistically. Because of her, I feel ang laki ng pinagbago ko. I don't know if it's because of the pandemic, pero I feel it's also her," he said.
He added that she is a big ~*positive*~ influence on him: "She always wants the best for me. I can say before na maging kami, immature pa ako, minsan pasaway, lahat naman tayo. Right now, because of her, feel ko ang laki ng pinagbago ko."
According to the 31-year-old actor, he would not have had all these blessings if Michelle hadn't come into his life. "Definitely, I think, dahil sa kanya nabigyan ako ng mga blessings na ganito. Noong nanalo ako, sabi niya, 'Dahil 'yan sa mga prayers mo, dahil mahilig ka magdasal,'" he said.
"The things that I'm doing right now—military training, studying again, this movie, acting award ko—malaking bagay... malaking reason siya," the actor added.
When the topic of taking their relationship to the next level came up, Enzo said that they do "talk about it," though they are focusing their attention on their careers first. "To be honest, ako, I don't mind. I don't mind taking it to another level," he added.
He did say that given her younger age, Michelle still has a lot of goals in mind, like taking up further studies and joining a beauty pageant.
"Basta ako, nandito lang ako palagi para sa kanya. Mararamdaman naman naming dalawa yung kung ready na to take it to another level. But of course, siyempre the thought is there. Hindi naman kami magkakaroon ng relationship together if we don't think of it as something long-term. Siyempre, nakikita ko na siya in [my] future," he concluded. Kilig!
