During the Betadine Fresh Bliss press con on August 1, Maine Mendoza gushed about her upcoming movie, Isa Pa With Feelings, where she will star opposite Carlo Aquino! "Sobrang excited ako gawin yung movie lalo na nung nabalitaan ko na with Carlo pa siya. Actually, magsa-start na kami. Wala pa kaming target release date pero excited na talaga ako because I will get to work with new people. 'Di ba exciting 'yon na parang lumalawak yung mundo mo sa showbiz?"
She also said that her love team with Alden Richards is essentially ~still there~, even though they're working on different projects! "Nandiyan naman talaga kasi every day naman po kami sa Eat Bulaga!, and wala namang any announcement na pinaghiwalay na or anything."
The past year brought about a whirlwind of changes for Maine, both in her personal life and her career. Earlier this year, she confirmed that she's dating actor Arjo Atayde. In July, they even went to the LANY concert together rding motorcycles to avoid being late! Cuties!
When it comes to her career, Maine feels like she grew from all the changes. "Nag-grow rin ako as a person, as a host, as an actress, as a celebrity. Hindi kasi tayo puwede mag-stay sa isang place, at a certain point in life, kailangan talaga natin mag-grow, mag-move forward. I would consider the changes in my life positive changes."
She also dished advice for those who are afraid of change! "Try to keep up with it. Think positive, kasi yung iba ang negative ng tingin nila sa change, e. Ang nega agad sa kanila kapag may something na nagbabago lalo ng kapag hindi sila sanay doon. Ang very realistic kong tao and hindi ako sanay na mag-sugarcoat ng mga bagay-bagay para maging maganda sa pandinig ng tao. So just keep up with change. We'll always have ups and downs in life so tanggapin na lang nating lahat na yung change nangyayari sa lahat ng tao."
