Actor Aga Muhlach finally talked about the controversial rift between him and showbiz friend Megastar Sharon Cuneta.
In an interview during the "Jollibee Maaga ang Pasko Bash for 400 Kids" event, Muhlach confirmed that he and Cuneta are now in good terms.
"Okay na. Saka wala naman talaga kaming problema. I mean everything is okay. Ayos na 'yon. All is well, always naman," Muhlach said.
The actor refused to comment more on the issue stressing that everything has been fixed already.
"You know there's so many things that have been said already. All is well so I will just stop at that," the actor said.
During Ai Ai delas Alas's concert on November 27, Cuneta pretended that she didn't know Muhlach, sparking speculations that the two were not in good terms.
Cuneta has clarified that it was meant to be a joke, but she admitted that she was upset when the actor purportedly turned down their reunion movie project.
Last week, Cuneta detailed her reconciliation with Muhlach.
She said that apologies were exchanged and accepted.
“Basta nag-usap kami. Pinuntahan niya ako tapos nag-usap kami. Apologies were exchanged, accepted,” she told “The Buzz.”
According to the megastar, Muhlach, her leading man in her 2003 film “Kung Ako Na Lang Sana,” was the first one to reach out.
Cuneta, however, declined to comment on their long-delayed reunion project, saying she has been talking about it in the past weeks.
When Muhlach was asked if he would do a movie with Cuneta, the actor replied: "Wala pa talaga. I think God-willing, pero may ginagawa pa ako. Tinatapos ko pa ang mga pelikula ko. In time kapag dumating ang tamang proyekto para sa amin, why not? I will be willing to work with her. She knows naman that. So wala 'yon. Hindi nagtatampo 'yon. Okay na yon," Muhlach ended.
Giving back to kids
This 2010, the country’s biggest and longest running toy and book collection drive, "Jollibee Maaga ang Pasko", treated hundreds of beneficiaries from all over the city who converged at the PICC Forum in Pasay City on Friday.
The children were treated to big gifts and a delicious feast.
“As we celebrate the 16th year of Jollibee Maaga ang Pasko, it’s only fitting to make it an even grander venue to reach out to the less fortunate and allow them to enjoy the biggest and brightest Christmas ever,” said Albert Cuadrante, Jollibee Vice President for Marketing.
"Marami pa 'yan sa buong Pilipinas we are trying to reach out. This is [the kids'] day. 'Yon naman ang Pasko talaga para sa kanila. So masaya ako na masaya sila. [It's] another day na hindi nila makakalimutan," added Muhlach, who has been endorsing Jollibee for years.
Among the chosen beneficiaries were kids from Brgy. Tonsuya, Malabon; Sacred Heart, Quezon City; Plainview, Mandaluyong; Pateros Church, Brgy. Sta. Ana; Brgy. Bagong Tanyag, Taguig City; Brgy. 13, Pasay City; Brgy. 157, Pasay City; Brgy. Taguig; Our Lady of Fatima Church, Pasay City; and Nuestra De Perperto Socorro, Sampaloc, Manila.
Coming from the region’s poorest communities, the children were selected by Jollibee Maaga ang Pasko partners like the Department of Social Welfare and Development, Hands On Manila, Habitat for Humanity, Social Services and Development Ministry, and Jollibee Foundation.
The kids also enjoyed other Christmas thrills including fun games, cool activities like balloon twisting and face painting, and got their fill of their favorite Jollibee treats.
Popular child actress Jillian Ward, Jollibee and Friends, plus select members of the Jollibee Kids Club gave inspiring performances that made the event more memorable.
