Director Paul Soriano vehemently denied that there is anything romantic between him and actress Erich Gonzales.
Rumors spread that Paul, 36, allegedly had an affair with Erich, 27, while they were filming their movie, Siargao, last May.
Paul had been married for two years to Kapamilya star, Toni Gonzaga, and they have an adorable baby, Seve.
Paul denied the rumors and told Pep during their presscon, “There is obviously no truth to that. We were in Siargao to make a film.”
“You know, it is very easy to write whatever it is you wanna write. Imaginations are wild,” referring to those who spread the rumor.
Paul also defended Erich; saying that’s unfair for the actress to be dragged this way. He said, “It’s unfair to Erich because she delivered in this film. She didn’t know how to surf, but she learned.”
“We were in Siargao for almost six weeks. We became almost like a family.”
The cast including the main stars Erich Gonzales, Jericho Rosales and Jasmine-Curtis-Smith were locked-in in Siargao for the entire six weeks shoot.
Toni Gonzaga had already quashed the rumor; saying that her intuition told her it isn’t true.
Siargao is an official entry to this December’s MMFF.
Here’s the official trailer from Sine Pelikula Youtube channel.
