JC’s got a crush on Maja

JC de Vera admits that until now he’s got a crush on fellow Kapamilya talent Maja Salvador. They starred in The Legal Wife last year.

“Yes, it’s true,” he says. “My admiration for her will always be there. No matter what happens, she will remain as my crush!”

Given the situation, many ask if he tried to pursue her.

 “Honestly, at present, I’m looking for a long-term relationship. I’m not saying that she doesn’t fit the description. You know, Maja is a friend. We get along so well.

“At this point, if I’ll (sic) make any move towards getting romantic, things might change. I hate to lose her because of that, if ever. Right now, I’m okay with what we have. Officially courting Maja hasn’t really crossed my mind. I just want to take things one step at a time.

“I’m not in a hurry to jump into a relationship anyway. I want nature to take its course. If it is bound to happen, then it will. What’s important is we’re both happy at present. Let’s just leave it at that for the moment and let’s see in the coming days, right?”

It seems that the handsome lad is more careful now when it comes to his personal life. It is public knowledge that he’s had relationships with Rhian Ramos, Danita Paner and LJ Reyes. Some quarters say he’s not that lucky when the girl is also from show business.

“Actually, we have our own opinion when it comes to that. As for me, it’s not that showbiz relationships won’t work, but they pose more pressure, obstacles, tests and challenges as compared to having a non-showbiz partner,” explains JC.

Isn’t he getting alarmed or impatient that until now, he has no girlfriend and all his relationships are short-lived?

“You know, I’m very good at waiting. Ha-ha-ha! I’m so patient when it comes to that. I know that the right time will come!”

The actor doesn’t deny though that some inspire him nowadays.

“That’s true! Actually, there’s nothing concrete, but yes, I’m inspired. That’s a good thing!”

Meanwhile, he was one of the most applauded in a popular male fashion show that was held recently.

“Oh, thank you! I was simply flattered with the audience’s warm reception of me. I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart. I really prepared my physique so as not to disappoint the viewers and I’m glad I was able to pull it off,” JC ends.


Asked if he’s threatened by the immense popularity of AlDub (Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza of Eat Bulaga fame) at present, Elmo Magalona says, “On the contrary, I’m even happy for them. I can see that they’ve raised the bar, so to speak. It’s no easy task to sustain the interest of the viewers on a daily basis. I’m hats-off (sic) to both of them because they’re very hard-working. I don’t know with other love teams but personally, I believe that AlDub is phenomenal and I appreciate what they’ve accomplished so far.”

So, what’s the latest between him and real life girlfriend Janine Gutierrez?

 “Actually, we just want to keep it as an in-between serious and in-between fun relationship. We’re good and I’m proud that our fans remain loyal and supportive to us all this time!”

Just in case their home studio decides to pair them with other stars in their future projects, is it just okay with him?

 “Of course it’s just fine. I’m open to the idea. GMA knows what will be best for us. One thing more, it’s for our growth as actors as well, right?” states Elmo.
