Gerald Anderson is happy that his projects without long time ka-love team Kim Chiu is being warmly received by the public. His weekly series Buhawi Jack with Jewel Mische enjoyed high ratings, while his movie with Sarah Geronimo raked in P15 million on its opening day alone last March 23. “Itong taon na ito is a chance for growth sa aming pareho ni Kim. Marami siyang project na siya lang and I’m praying na maging successful lahat ‘yun. Ako rin may mga projects na iba ang makakasama ko. Sana maging successful lahat,” Gerald told reporters during the thanksgiving press conference for Catch Me…I’m in Love.
When reports about the break up of the Kim-Gerald love team first surfaced, many of their fans had violent reactions, and there were those who even went as far as sending death threats to both Kim and Gerald. But the young actor clarified that those threats didn’t come from their loyal Kimerald supporters. “Hindi Kimeralds ‘yun. May mga nagbabanta na kapag hindi si Kim ang partner ko, ibo-boycott nila ‘yung projects. Pero God is good talaga kasi ‘yung mga solo projects ko naging successful naman like ‘yung Buhawi Jack. Thank you talaga sa mga Kimeralds. Gusto ko lang magtrabaho at maging successful lahat ng projects ko. Thank God wala nang mga threats. Magaan na ang buhay ko.”
Gerald invited Kim to the premiere night of the movie, but the young actress was busy taping for Your Song. But Kim sent Gerald her message of support. “Nasa taping ng Your Song si Kim. Pero nagsabi na siya ng, ‘Congratulations in advance.’ Sabi ko na I’m very thankful sa kanya, sa lahat ng support niya. Sinusuportahan ko pa rin din siya,” shared Gerald.
Kim has recently been linked to numerous male celebrities, most notably basketball player Simon Atkins who publicized his admiration for the chinita actress via Twitter. Kim has also been linked to Jason Abalos and Enchong Dee, and according to Gerald, it’s not shocking if Kim gets a lot of admirers given how beautiful she is. “Si Brad Pitt ba nagparamdam na sa kanya? Si George Clooney nagparamdam na ba? E ganun talaga. Magandang babae si Kim e. Hindi natin maiiwasan ‘yun.”
However, since they don’t have a serious commitment at the moment aside from friendship, Gerald explained that it’s no longer appropriate for him to always comment on whatever is going on in Kim’s love life. “Hindi ako bodyguard ni Kim. I’m just happy na she’s very beautiful and happy right now. Friends kami ngayon at ‘yun ang mahalaga.”
Regarding his own love life, Gerald chose not to comment any further about last year’s issue of him dating Bea Alonzo. The two will be part of the Star Magic tour in the US this April, but Gerald said he has no problem working with Bea because they’re on good terms. “Okay naman kami. Friends. Basta masaya ako sa buhay ko. 2011 na. 2010 pa ‘yan, ha ha ha!,’ he said.
