Maja Salvador Happy In Gerald Anderson’s Company

Amid all the controversies hounding her these days, Maja Salvador is able to hold her head high, relying on her inner strength and much-valued support system that includes the new special person in her life, Gerald Anderson.

When asked directly if she and Gerald are now a couple, the young actress quickly quipped, "Agad-agad? Ganun kadali?"

In further response, she then echoed the actor's earlier statement that they are getting to know each other and prefer to let things take its natural course.

"Kung anuman 'yung nangyayari sa'min, kung anuman 'yung pinapakita sa'kin ni Gerald ngayon, aaminin ko masaya naman ako. Pero hanggang dun na lang muna. Ayokong mag-detalye muna. Pero sobrang salamat sa kanya kasi nararamdaman ko na special nga talaga ako sa kanya at pinagtatanggol niya ko kahit papa'no," she told Bulletin Entertainment and select members of the press at her Tupperware Brands contract-signing with Sam Milby, March 5.

Maja further revealed that, "Parang hindi naman (kami) nag-liligawan eh."

"Parang nag-e-enjoy lang sa company ng isa't-isa. Kasi 'di ba 'pag may nanliligaw sa'yo, maarte ka, nagpapaka-girl ka, eh hindi ako ganun eh! Hindi ako ganun sa kanya. Basta masaya lang 'yung company namin. Masaya ako sa company niya, sa mga friends niya. Tapos siya rin..." she added.

Gerald has been vocal about how he has grown fond of Maja, as well as his assurance that he's got her back. Things are not as stable for Maja in the friendship department, given her falling-out with best friend Kim Chiu, who was in a relationship with the actor some years ago.

"Hindi ko hiniling 'yon sa kanya (Gerald) pero nandiyan siya, nandiyan siya lagi," said she.

Maja was more reserved in spilling details, let alone her thoughts, on the rumored grand helicopter-Tagaytay date that Gerald prepared for her last Valentine's Day. At one point, she even blurted, "Nakakaloka! Change topic!"

Although she acknowledges Gerald's efforts and support, Maja pointed out that she also has other sources of inspiration.

"Kailan lang siya (Gerald) dumating sa mundo ko. Kailan ko lang siya naging ka-close. So kung wala siya, ano'ng mangyayari sa'kin kung siya lang 'yung pinagkukuhanan ko ng inspirasyon? Ang dami (kong inspirasyon): Trabaho ko, 'yung mga fans, 'yung family ko. (Pero) thankful (ako) kasi tulad nga ng sinabi niya sa interview niya... special ako sa kanya," she related at length.

Indeed, Maja has a lot to be grateful for these days - the things she chooses to focus on. "Aminin na natin na may mga pinagdadaanan ngayon, pero mas pinipili ko 'yung positive side 'yung makita ko," she said.

Apart from a successful drama series, "Ina, Kapatid, Anak," she remains an endorser of Tupperware Brands - her fourth year this 2013. She and Sam have been tapped as ambassadors for its masculine and feminine scents line, respectively. Aside from her own signature scents Maja and Shine by Maja, she also represents the Ivana, H Woman, and A Little Romance variants.

"I'm very blessed and thankful na until now, nandiyan pa rin sila (and) hindi nawawala 'yung trust na binibigay ng Tupperware Brands. Talagang hindi lang 'yung produkto ang inaalagaan nila, pati 'yung endorsers nila, sobrang suportado sila sa kung anumang projects na ginagawa nila," she said of the brand, which marks its 20th anniversary this year.
