Piolo Pascual admitted that he once courted Toni Gonzaga but it didn’t blossom into an official boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. In an episode of Gandang Gabi Vice, while promoting their film “Starting Over Again,” Toni and Piolo got candid about their past.
We all know they first worked together for a TV commercial 13 years prior to this interview. Looking at Toni, Piolo noticed she’s become bolder and has learned to embrace her sexiness. The sexiest part of her body, according to him, is the legs.
Then, answering Vice’s questions, Piolo revealed they once dated. He brought her to a Gary Valenciano concert and she was chaperoned. It didn’t level up to a more romantic relationship, though.
According to Toni, she felt like Piolo was out of her league partly because she just transferred to ABS-CBN at the time. “Hindi pa uso ang contour. Hindi pa uso ang stylists. Nahihiya ako. Ano ba ‘yan! Ganito itsura ko tapos mali-link sa akin Piolo Pascual. Baka walang maniwala, so tinago ko na lang din.”
Vice reacted, “Bakit ka mahihiya?!” Toni was really shy at the time to the point of self-deprecating. She also wasn’t that comfortable to get close to him when they worked on the TV commercial that catapulted her to fame. “Siya ‘yung bidang-bida doon tapos gaganap akong fan. Alangan namang close-close ka kaagad. Tahimik lang kasi ako. Nahihiya ako kasi siyempre malaking artista.”
On the other hand, here’s Piolo’s side of the story on why he stopped pursuing her: “Kailangan kong magparaya kasi marami siyang trabaho that time. Araw-araw nagtatrabaho so I had to give her space.”
Asked if she regretted it, Toni quipped, “May pagsisisi nga! Ano ba ‘yan nagmaganda kasi ako. Nawala tuloy.”
