Bea Alonzo has moved on from her relationship with ex-boyfriend Gerald Anderson who “ghosted” her a few months ago.
The Kapamilya actress revealed this during the press conference of the movie Unbreakable in Quezon City on Wednesday afternoon.
“Tapos na ‘ko doon. Okay na ‘ko. Saka sobrang daming blessings na dumating. Parang nag-360 (degrees turn),” Bea said.
“Ang daming dapat kong ipagpasalamat. Na-realize ko, ang dami pa lang mas importante sa buhay ko, hindi lang dyowa,” she added.
When asked if she is seeing someone new, Bea replied: “Wala pa naman po. Magpapahinga muna ako. Parang hindi ko pa kaya.”
The multi-awarded actress added that a person does not need a new relationship with someone to prove that a person has moved on.
“Hindi naman kailangang magka-boyfriend para patunayan na naka-move on ka na,” Bea stressed.
Bea and Gerald’s three-year-long relationship ended with the actor allegedly “ghosting” the actress.
The 32-year-old actress earlier said there was no formal breakup between her and Gerald. She said the 30-year-old actor just suddenly stopped talking to her.
In millennial lingo, “ghosting” is the act of abruptly leaving someone like a stealthy, disappearing ghost; just ceasing all communications with the other person.
Gerald said he tried to reach out to Bea, but he did not directly answer if he did “ghost” her.
The actor was also accused of cheating on Bea with Julia Barretto.
But he denied it, saying: “No one else was the reason, the cause of their breakup.”
The actor stressed that they had a succession of arguments that ultimately led to “one big fight,” and the realization came that the relationship was no longer healthy, and that “we were just hurting each other.”
But despite their tumultuous breakup, Bea said she still believes in love and she will not close off her heart.
“Hindi naman isasarado (her heart). Magpapahinga lang. Magpapagaling ka lang,” she said.
“And then kapag dumating na iyong tamang panahon, kapag ready ka na ulit, eh di i-open mo na ulit heart mo,” she added.
When asked by the media what makes a woman “unbreakable,” Bea said, “Pain makes you unbreakable. If you were able to soar above all the difficulties in life and get through everything na ibato sa’yo ng buhay at lumabas ka ng buo, that makes you unbreakable.
“Pero siyempre habang nabubuhay ka patuloy pa rin ‘yung mga pagsubok na ibibigay ni Lord ‘di ba? Para mas gawin kang unbreakable. Para mas marami kang matutunan at para sa akin sa mga pinagdaanan ko na-realize ko na hindi mo dapat iniiwasan ‘yung mga pain,” she went on.
“Dapat ini-endure mo siya at natututo ka. Dapat hindi ka natatakot kapag may lungkot na darating. Harapin mo siya and then learn from it and you will become unbreakable and be a better person after. You just have to believe,” she added.
Bea and Angelica Panganiban, two of the most bankable stars in the country, come together for the first time on the big screen in Star Cinema’s Unbreakable.
The film, which opens on November 27, also stars Richard Gutierrez, Ian Veneracion, Rosanna Roces, and Gloria Diaz.
