Are they or are they not?
Showbiz fans are raising the poser referring to actor Coco Martin and Filipino-German actress Julia Montes.
Showbiz authority and columnist Ethel Ramos sought out the young Filipino-German actress, whos real name is Mara Hautea Schnittka, and came out with a report – Julia Montes would neither admit nor deny her reported romance with the popular young actor.
In her latest column, Ethel Ramos though reported that Julia, now 22, is close to Coco’s mother and added that this is no secret.
The columnist revealed that Coco’s mother and Julia were even recently spotted in Hong Kong together.
The rumored lovers, though mum about their personal lives, remain very visible on screen, according to the columnist.
In a column, Coco, 35, whose full real name is Rodel Luis Pacheco Nacianceno, was reported to be juggling work on the primetime ABS-CBN network hit television series, “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” and his acting and directing duties for the movie “Ang Panday,” an entry in this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.
Julia, it was learned, has just finished playing the snobbish Annika Pintasera in “Wansapanataym” and will soon be seen in the new ABS-CBN series, “Victims of Love.”
“The series excites me. Mantakin mo, I will have two confirmed drama actresses for my co-stars,” she revealed, referring to much-awarded actresses Lorna Tolentino and Cherry Pie Picache, with whom she will be working for the first time.
While mum on her relationship with the actor, Julia, hoever, does not deny that Coco gives her financial advice, especially on where to put her earnings, according to the columnist.
It was reported that it was Coco who encouraged the actress to build a house in a plush subdivision in Antipolo City.
“Coco told Julia that the house is not only for her family, but a sound investment, too,” a friend of Julia was quoted as saing. “One of these days, she just might put up her own business,” she added.
