Actor Arjo Atayde on Wednesday, January 23 admits he is ‘exclusively dating’ actress Maine Mendoza.
During the press interview of Atayde’s new movie TOL, the actor admitted that Mendoza makes him the happiest.
“She makes me laugh all the time,” the actor said.
However, when asked what he likes most about Mendoza, the actor simply answered: “A lot of things.”
The actor was tight-lipped about the details of their relationship, but he had a lot to say about the online bashing directed at them and his family.
“To insult me is fine. I’m a very passive person. But to insult my family or Maine—sabi ko nga sa social media, I let it go, wala akong kalaban diyan, e. But do it in front of me, I’m sure I’m going to hit the hell out of you,” says Arjo. “I despise disrespectful people. For my family to get affected, for Maine to be disrespected, that’s not okay with me. But in front of me, try it. I dare you, guys. I dare you,” he said.
Mendoza and Atayde worked together in the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival entry “Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles.”
Last December, Mendoza said she and Atayde are simply “friends” despite photos of them together at various establishments surfaced online last October, prompting fans to speculate that they are dating.
