Angelica, torn between Carlo Aquino and Jason Abalos?

Author: Kaye Villagomez

Despite admitting that she and Carlo Aquino are back in each other's arms, Angelica Panganiban is not closing her doors to screen partner Jason Abalos.

"We're enjoying each other's company now. Kung si Carlo tahimik lang, si Jason masaya kasama. I'm not closing my doors sa kanya," the young actress told the media the press conference of new movie "All About Love," a trilogy where she stars with Jason alongside other pairs Anne Curtis and Luis Manzano and Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz.

Jason revealed he has always longed to court Angelica since the time they were paired for the ABS-CBN drama "Vietnam Rose" but held his intentions back because Angelica and Carlo got back together. "Nakikita ko naman na masaya siya at nirerespeto ko yung kung ano ang meron sila ni Carlo. Mahirap umasa pero yun nga, gaya ng sabi ng iba, hindi pa naman sila kasal, malay natin," the "Star Circle Quest" discovery hoped.

Angelica did not deny that it was an easier decision to take Carlo back in than letting a new relationship in her life because, "I've known Carlo since we were young. Siya na yung una kong nagging kapareha. Lumaki na talaga ako with him. Siya yung unang crush ko and first boyfriend. Kaya it was easier for us to get back together. Sabi nga nila after a breakup and you maintain a friendship with your ex, it's probably because you're still in love, and I think that's the case between Carlo and me, mahal ko pa talaga siya kahit after our break-up."

Jason confessed he intended to court Angelica. "We used to text each other noong una pa lang kami magkakilala. Mas open nga kami sa isa't-isa through text at that time kaysa in person. Lately na lang nawala yung ilang naming sa isa't-isa. Tinigil ko lang yun nung nagkabalikan na sila ni Carlo."

Angelica agreed in enjoying Jason's company even if sometimes she has to act as teacher to Jason's acting. "Mas madaling katrabaho si Carlo kasi sanay na ako na siya ang nagdadala sa akin sa mga eksena. Kahit with other screen partners, ako yung dinadala. But with Jason, ako yung nagtuturo kaya minsan nagaaway na kami."

According to "All About Love" director Don Cuaresma, the Angelica-Jason love team has the makings of a hit pair, "because they have such chemistry I've seen with John Lloyd and Bea when they started and if I were to choose which of the three pairs I love directing the most, it's really Angelica and Jason more than Bea-John Lloyd or Anne-Luis tandems."

In "All About Love," Angelica plays a party girl whose nude picture was exposed via MMS and passed on from one mobile phone to another when one of the guys who partied with her took her drunken photo. Because of this, she escaped city life and found refuge in Jason's character while the demons of her wild past trailed her.

Angelica and Jason has a controversial torrid kissing scene in "All About Love" which the actress described as something Jason really enjoyed, "kasi matagal niya nang pangarap yun at pag napanood ni Carlo, I'm sure maiinggit siya because he will wish it was him in Jason's shoes."
