Gerald Anderson (MNS photo) Gerald Anderson said he is not worried about doing intimate scenes with Angelica Panganiban in a still untitled project under ABS-CBN’s film production outfit. In an interview, Anderson believes his love scenes with Panganiban will not be an issue for his girlfriend, actress Maja Salvador. “Ako before nung nagkaroon ako ng relationship I was an actor, so I’m just doing my job. Kumbaga kinuha ako ng Star Cinema to do this role. I also have the convenience that the person that I’m in a relationship with is an actress kaya nagkakaintindihan kami,” he said. Instead, Anderson said he is happy to have the chance to work with Panganiban, who is among the prized talents of ABS-CBN of this generation. “I’m just very blessed na pinili ako [ng Star Cinema]. I have a director that I’m very comfortable with, and may new leading lady,” he said. While they have no qualms about being intimate on screen, both Anderson and Panganiban admitted being only acquainted through their respective real-life partners, who were previously film co-stars. Anderson said he is looking forward to learning from the 27-year-old Panganiban, whose career as an actress spans over two decades. “First time ko rin makakasama si Angelica, at tama si Direk (Ruel Bayani), si Angelica, wala siyang hindi kayang gawin. I would love to learn from her,” he added. (MNS)
