Actors Paulo Avelino and Aljur Abrenica are currently working together for the upcoming ABS-CBN soap Asintado, which also stars Julia Montes and Shaina Magdayao. This project, however, was not the first time that the two were linked together.

Almost a decade before, there had been rumors circulating that the two—who were both contestants of the GMA-7 talent search show StarStruck IV: The Next Level—were in a relationship together.

This was brought up when both Avelino and Abrenica were guests in Boy Abunda’s late night talk show. The actors, who are actually good friends in real life, were quick to make light of the situation.

Abrenica said, “Naka-move on na kami, e…” (We’ve already moved on from the past…)

Kidding aside, Abrenica said that he and Avelino would just laugh it off, which was how they recovered from those rumors.

Avelino added, “Siguro the way I move, medyo feminine nga raw… Pero hindi naman siguro dun nabe-base ang pagkalalaki ng isang tao.” (Maybe the way I move is a bit feminine, although that’s not really how you measure one’s masculinity.)
