He said that if he really likes something, he chases after it. He also said that he "really, really" likes Erich Gonzales.
So why did Jake Cuenca decide against courting the actress, despite having a crush on her? There's a pretty simple reason for it, as he explained on "Tonight With Boy Abunda."
"Mas naging priority ko iyong maging mabuting leading man sa kaniya, kahit kontrabida ako sa show," he said, referring to the time they worked together on "The Blood Sisters."
He added that he now actively avoids dating women in showbiz, saying: "I've realized that I don't like to mix business with pleasure. I like to keep it that way."
He also reiterated his conviction on the things he likes, but said that his focus back then was really on his work.
"Kung gustong-gusto ko talaga, hindi rin naman ako mapipigilan eh. . . . Mas nangibabaw lang talaga sa akin na kahit kontrabida ako ay kailangan maging mabuting leading man ako sa kaniya."
He was on the late-night talk show to promote the upcoming afternoon series, "Los Bastardos," and his play, "Lungs."
