Talk about a blast from the past! In a report by PEP.ph, Sam Pinto confirmed that she and our Pambansang Bae Alden Richards dated waaaay back in 2011. The two then-rising stars got together during a promotional tour for their movie, Tween Academy Class of 2012. “Pero hanggang dun na lang yun,” says Sam.
Sam explains why things never really worked out between the two of them: “He’s just too young for me.”
Sam and Alden have a miniscule age gap of TWO years but it was uncomfortable for Sam to date a younger man, saying, “Ang bagets pa [noon] ni Alden, ha! Para akong nagiging cougar! I don't like.”
WOMP, WOMP, WOMP.
Well, things have been looking up for Alden now at least. Wait—that’s an understatement.
