The last quarter of the year 2017 was a rough patch for Kapamilya’s ultimate leading man, John Lloyd Cruz. The 34-year-old actor became the talk of the town after taking an indefinite leave of absence from the showbiz industry. Despite enduring harsh criticisms from his detractors, some people came to the actor’s rescue and one of them is actress Maja Salvador.
In the past, the two Kapamilya celebrities also shared a meaningful friendship that extended even when they were not working together in front of the camera, hence why Maja Salvador felt obliged to defend John Lloyd from his harsh detractors on social media.
Amidst the wild speculations and rumors, the 29-year-old “Wildflower” actress chose to stand by the side of her fellow actor. In an exclusive interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal, Maja Salvador has no filter when it comes to supporting John Lloyd Cruz. When asked about her sentiments towards her ‘kuya,’ the actress kept it short yet straight-to-the-point:
“Let’s be happy. Let’s respect him, ganun. Maging masaya tayo. Talagang ‘yun ang buhay, maging masaya ka.”
These days on social media, speculations are flying about the 34-year-old actor’s upcoming wedding with his rumored girlfriend, Ellen Adarna. During the short clip, the interviewer also brought this matter to the conversation, but Maja jokingly swept it under the rug. In the end, the actress decided to keep her message positive by saying:
“Whatever it is, as long as he’s happy, at nae-enjoy nya ‘yung life, wala ‘kong dapat pigilan doon. And I think tayong lahat walang makakapigil din kung masaya ang isang tao.”
