Manila, Philippines, ABS-CBN star Angel Locsin said she is not open to being courted by 2009 CNN “Hero of the Year” Efren Peñaflorida at the moment.
In an interview, Locsin said that she and Peñaflorida are just good friends. ” Iki-clear ko lang ‘yon. Hindi ako nagpapaligaw. Right now, we are good friends,” Locsin added.
Meanwhile, Locsin is reportedly back on speaking terms with ex-boyfriend Luis Manzano. She said this is one of the reasons why she has graciously declined to be courted by Peñaflorida.
I don’t want to entertain Luis while I’m entertaining others. I don’t want to lead on someone who is making an effort,” Locsin said.
“Hindi naman kami nagmamadali pero hindi naman maalis kung gaano ka-special sa akin si Luis. Pero right now ayaw ko munang pumasok sa relationship,” Locsin said.
Manzano was lukewarm to Peñaflorida’s plans to woo his ex-girlfriend. He stated, however, that he respects Peñaflorida’s work as a social worker who teaches out-of-school youth through his “Pushcart Classes” project.
