For the past months, actress Ria Atayde has been romantically linked to actor Joshua Garcia.
And recently, the daughter of Sylvia Sanchez finally broke her silence.
In an interview with Cinema One’s “Pop Cinema,” Ria reiterated that she and Joshua are not playing sweet music together.
“Joshua is a very good friend,” said she.
Recall that rumors about them being a couple was ignited after being spotted together with friends Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, Sofia Andres and Daniel Miranda, and Patrick Sugui and Aeriel Garcia.
“We laughed about it. It’s actually something like, ‘uy rumored boyfriend halika rito.’ Like, I mean, it’s really… we are friends and it’s funny,” she said.
“I am super, super comfortable with him. Because nga he is my mom’s grandson in ‘The Greatest Love’ and because of that he actually celebrated Christmas with us that year and we’re close. Like we just don’t post about each other or anything.”
She said that despite that things got busy, they always keep in touch.
“Then kasi we are also working together on ‘Viral’ so you know lot of reasons to hang out. And he also just recently started playing golf with the boys of my friend group. Now he is part of it as well. So it’s really just that,” she pointed out.
Ria said that she’s used to being linked to some of her friends.
“You know I’ve been teased with Dominic Roque and Marco Gumabao. So I guess whoever is single naman nilalagay nila sa akin. Regardless kung sino, gets ko naman guys. Single nga, gets na gets.”
