30 Jul – John Lloyd Cruz still has no answer as to who Bea Alonzo really was in his life during the popularity of their love team, even now, when the question was asked again in an interview.

The actor, who sat down with ABS-CBN News' Karen Davila, admitted that it was hard for him to give a direct answer when it comes to his relationship with his former onscreen partner, whom he started working with since the 2002 series, "Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay".

"I respect her and she has been good to me and to my family, so it's hard. Sometimes there are questions that I really wish I could answer with yes or no," he said. "Because I respect that person, I don't want to be boxed in with a useless answer just to get across."

The two stars first worked together in "Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay"

John Lloyd added that Bea has a special place in his heart, and that it would be something that is hard to change.

"But whether or not we were [together], we weren't. But your question is if we dated, it's hard to answer," he said. "If anything, I'm afraid to label whatever came true between [me and Bea]. Even if I'm on my own, I don't want it to be reduced into something that it's not."

Nonetheless, the actor expressed hope that the reunion movie that they were supposed to work with earlier will still push through.
