Paraiso actor Matteo Guidicelli admits he and costar Jessy Mendiola are spending a lot of time together."Jessy is very beautiful, very supportive. Talagang...a lot of qualities na gusto ko sa isang babae, nasa kanya." But the model-hunk was quick to clarify that he's not courting the 20-year-old actress yet. "I'm just there for her all the time na kailangan niya ako bilang kaibigan."
Despite being just friends, Matteo revealed that Jessy already met his family at a barbecue party last year. "Kumain kami do'n sa bahay. Yun, nakilala siya ng mama at papa ko. Ayos nga, eh. They like Jessy."
Do his parents like Jessy more than his ex-girlfriend, Maja Salvador? “Yun ang hindi ko alam, wala silang sinasabi. Pero they like Jessy,” Matteo replied.
