Controversial actor Gerald Anderson credited his co-stars in new Kapamilya series “A Soldier’s Heart” for helping him withstand the pressures and negative emotions he had with regard to his failed relationship with fellow ABS-CBN talent Bea Alonzo.
Gerald, who was also put on the spotlight after Bea gave hints that he flirted with Julia Barretto when they were still together, particularly cited Carlo Aquino for showing genuine concern to his situation.
In an interview with the hosts of ABS-CBN’s morning talk show “Magandang Buhay”, Geralo shared: “Nag-open up ako sa isang taping namin. Pero hindi ko sinabi sa kanila na ako ‘yon. … Noong time kasi na ‘yon parang nasa akin lahat, parang may makaka-relate kaya sa akin? Iba ‘yung feeling. So nung nagkuwento ako, ‘yung kaibigan ko kasi ganito, ‘yung partner niya ganyan,’ sabi nila ‘ay oo, Bro.’ So parang gumaan agad ‘yung pakiramdam ko na ‘ah okay normal, hindi lang pala ako ang dumadaan sa ganito.
ABS-CBN scheduled the start of the primetime airing of the new series of Gerald and Carlo on Monday (January 20). The two actors and other stars of “A Soldier’s Heart” guested at “Magandang Buhay” — hosted by Karla Estrada, Melai Cantiveros and Jolina Magdangal—to promote the TV series.
In that interview, Gerald admitted that he also had his own shortcomings when it comes to keeping relationships. He said: “Hindi naman ako magmamalinis. Until this day, siyempre there are nights na I think of what could I have done better, ano ‘yung dapat ko ginawa. Habang tumatagal doon ko na-realize na there’s always two versions talaga. At iba ang perspective ng bawat tao sa relationship. It takes two to tango. But I also accepted na a relationship doesn’t fail just because of one person, it really takes two, kasi kayong dalawa ‘yung nandoon.”
When people were already passing judgment on him, Gerald said he was glad to be around Carlo and other “A Soldier’s Heart” stars. “Pero noong pinaka-peak ng lahat ng judgment at pinagdaanan, ako masasabi ko na hindi ko ‘yon [malalagpasan] kung hindi dahil sa ‘A Solider’s Heart,’ dahil sa grupo na ito. Makita ko lang sila, magba-basketball, during break, or kakain kami sa labas, or kakain sa kampo sobrang sarap na may ganito ako. I think Papa God gives you the challenges at the right time in your life. He gives the worst challenges to the strongest soldiers, isa ‘yon sa mga na-realize ko.”
