In an episode of “Tonight with Boy Abunda” which featured the two actors, host Boy Abunda couldn’t help but talk about this interesting time in his guests’ young lives. Both actors happily shared fond memories and of course, their impressions of one another.
For Aljur, Paulo already stood out as a worthy competitor because of his talent and good looks.
“Noong nakita ko si Paulo, sabi ko, ‘Wow, this guy, dashing.’ Guwapo na si Paulo noon. Kumbaga sa competition, ito iyong makakalaban ko.”
Paulo, on the other hand, stated that one thing he admires about Aljur was the latter’s ability to carry a tune.
“Talented, dahil nakikita ko siya na nag-o-audition, kumakanta. Nakikita mo, parang ang galing kumanta nito. Sana napunta na lang sa akin iyong talent niya sa pagkanta.”
Another topic touched upon was the rumor that he and Aljur were involved in a romantic relationship. Aljur shared that the two just laughed at the rumor when it first circulated. Paulo said that their close friendship might have been misinterpreted by people.
“Sabi nila, medyo malambot daw ako, na mukhang totoo naman . . . Siguro naging close din talaga lahat ng mga ka-batch namin, at siguro na mis-interpret lang ng mga tao.”
