John, Heart admit to MU.
From: Malaya newspaper   [October 2003]

    Heart Evangelista confesses that she considers John Prats more than a friend. But they are not sweethearts yet, she quickly adds. "Ayaw pa kasi ng Daddy ko," she stresses. "Ang feeling niya, at 18, 'di pa ako dapat maging serious sa pag-ibig."

    Heart is glad that John understands. "Sapat na sa kanya na malaman na when I'm ready to have a boyfriend, wala akong pipiliin kung hindi siya," she reveals with a smile.

    Like in their first film together, the twin bill "My First Romance," where they are featured in the film's first episode, "One Love," they didn't see eye-to-eye when they first met. She thought he was mayabang. He felt she was too maarte .

    "Pero nang magkalapit na kami nang husto, ayun, nagkakilala na kami.

    "One thing I like about John, super mabait siya. At napaka-tiyaga niyang manliligaw. Mabait din siyang anak, which is my number one requirement sa lalaking mamahalin ko," Heart says.

    John, on the other hand, believes he has found his ideal girl in Heart. He finds her understanding and faithful. "Dahil 'di na siya tumitingin sa ibang boys mula nang maging magka-MU (mutual understanding) kami," John explains.

    In the episode "One Love," John plays a scholar and the Student Affairs assistant who is forever bumping heads with Heart, a campus beauty and a student leader. The two are always at odds with each other. Nobody, not even their friends, think they will like each other.

    "Siguro because they really like each other in real life, 'di ako nahirapan when I had them do their romantic scenes together," says John D., who directs John and Heart's "One Love" episode.

    The other episode, "Two Hearts," has John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo playing the lead roles. "Two Hearts" is based on a screenplay by Mel Del Rosario and directed by Don Cuaresma.

    "One Love," the first episode, is based on a story and screenplay by Ted Boborol.
