MANILA – The tandem of Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz is one of the most followed love teams in the showbiz industry having been paired in numerous movie projects that became blockbusters in the big screen for years.
Popoy and Basha, as they are sometimes called because of their roles in several movie sequels, have denied numerous times that there is romantic involvement in real-life amid the enduring popularity of their love team.
However, in an interview with celebrity doctor Aivee Teo, Bea confessed that she has always been in love with John Lloyd, her longtime on-screen partner.
“I’m always in love with him. I feel like our partnership will never work if I was not in love with him. So nandoon lagi ‘yun,” she said.
“I think I said this before doon sa interview ko with G3 (San Diego) na ‘yung relationship namin, lahat na napagdaanan. We were friends, we were enemies, we were almost lovers. ‘Yung relationship namin, nata-transcend niya na ‘yung level of just romance. Now, he’s more than just that to me. That’s the beauty of it,” she added.
Bea presumes that she may also be “in love with the idea of what we are.”
“Parang hindi mo alam kung ano siya, and I’m in love with that idea. I know that we have the same amount of respect and love for each other. That’s why it’s very special to me,” she said.
Bea categorically said falling in love with John Lloyd is not even a question anymore “because I’m always in love with the guy.”
Contrary to what others think, Bea said there is more to having a relationship than just love.
But without naming names, Alonzo revealed that she is currently dating someone.
“I am dating. And guys if you’re interested, you can just comment below. Leave your number, char,” she said in jest.
Following her controversial breakup with Gerald Anderson last year, Bea said she is very open to being happy again.
Bea has has been romantically linked to actor Dominic Roque, for months now, although the two have yet to admit or deny about the real score between them
