MANILA — Yassi Pressman admitted she was nervous and bothered for a time by rumors romantically linking her to her onscreen partner Coco Martin.
In an interview on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” that aired Friday, the “Ang Probinsyano” actress was asked for her reaction to her name being brought up in connection with Martin and the actor’s link to another actress, Julia Montes.
Martin and Montes, who were frequent onscreen partners for a time, have long been rumored to be romantically involved, although neither has gone on record to confirm their status.
Having worked together with Martin three years now, Pressman described her co-star as a “really, really good friend.”
Responding to her being tagged in the relationship of Martin and Montes, Pressman said: “In the beginning I was a little nervous, kasi hindi naman po talaga ako kasali.”
She also laughed off speculation that her closeness with Martin was among the reasons Montes has been on hiatus from showbiz and living abroad.
The interview did switch to a lighter topic, particularly Pressman and Martin’s shared fondness for pet snakes. The actress even introduced her own to host Boy Abunda, resulting in amused reactions in the studio. Watch below:
