MANILA, JUNE 15, 2012 (MANILA BULLETIN) By MAUREEN MARIE BELMONTE - Sid Lucero is adamant that he and Heart Evangelista are just “good friends.”
Contrary to rumors about them warming up to each other, the former explained that they haven’t gone beyond the boundaries of friendship just yet.
“We’re really good friends, yeah,” Lucero said in a taped interview with “Unang Hirit” aired Thursday.
He maintained that to some extent, they have found comfort around each other knowing that they have gone through similar ordeals lately. Recall that the two Kapuso talents both just came off from a relationship; Evangelista with her Brapanese model Daniel Matsunaga, and Lucero with his non-showbiz beau.
"That’s what made us close to each other eh. ‘Yun nga ‘shoulder to cry on’ and all that,” he explained.
Although Lucero confessed in an earlier report to being in awe of Evangelista’s acting prowess and her beauty, that doesn’t equate to him wanting to have a relationship with the 27-year-old actress.
“I just came off from a relationship, I’m not ready for anything,” said the award-winning actor in the "UH" report.
Recall that Evangelista in a recent Bulletin Entertainment report already denied any brewing romance with her “Legacy” leading man. She likewise refuted rumors saying that Lucero was the third wheel that caused her breakup with Matsunaga.
“It’s not like that. Hindi talaga siya gano’n,” said Evangelista.
She admitted, though, that they “hang out on friendly dates" every now and then.
”Sid and I are very close. We’re really close friends. We do hangout, yes, that’s true but it has nothing to do with my relationship with Daniel. ‘Pag nagmahal ako… grabe ako magmahal. I gave a hundred percent. I exert all effort talaga into the relationship so it has nothing to do with that,” she clarified.
