Fans who’ve already watched “Isa pa with Feelings’” official trailer note that the chemistry between actors Maine Mendoza and Carlo Aquino was loud even in the most silent scenes. The two first met at the premiere night of the film “Meet Me in St. Gallen” which Carlo starred in alongside Bela Padilla. Maine is good friends with “Meet Me in St. Gallen” director Irene Villamor who she tapped to help her request for a photo opportunity with Carlo, her crush.
“I’ve always been a fan of Carlo”, Maine admitted in her first TWBA hot seat interview. In return, Carlo feels flattered with Maine’s revelations. The actor added that he was dumbfounded upon learning about working with Maine in “Isa Pa with Feelings”.
Although working as a movie loveteam, both Maine and Carlo are romantically linked with other individuals in real life. Maine has long been rumored as the girlfriend of Kapamilya actor Arjo Atayde. Eager followers are yet to hear a straightforward confirmation from the two but, as they say, actions speak louder than words. Besides, ArMaine shippers content themselves reading between the lines. Arjo has always been vocal about his special feelings for Maine and his will to fight for what they have. In return, Maine also does the same. In fact, Maine boldly admitted to Boy Abunda that Arjo is a huge part of her happiness.
Carlo, on the other hand, was caught in an issue involving ex-girlfriend Angelica Panganiban. It can be recalled that Carlo and Angelica were reported dating again amid working for their film “Exes Baggage”. But, months after “Exes Baggage” was released, fans were surprised to hear Carlo dating Trina Candaza. It turns out that even Angelica was shocked with the news. So, when asked about giving Angelica false hope, Carlo was honest to admit that he might have hurt the actress’ feelings. “Siguro po”, Carlo told Tito Boy. To set things straight, Carlo confirmed his relationship with Trina.
