Maja Salvador on overcoming controversies & constantly reinventing herselft in Meg Magazine's October 2011 issue!!
Maja Salvador returns to primetime as Amber Dionisio, the newest character in My Binondo Girl. “Na-excite ako kasi susuporta ako sa show ng aking kaibigan na si Kim. Nanonood din kasi ako ng My Binondo Girl at tuwang-tuwa ako sa istorya. Kaya hindi ako makapaniwala nung sinabi sa akin na kukunin ako para makasama sa show.”
Maja refused to reveal if her character would be a friend or a foe. “Kaya ko siya inaccept kasi nagustuhan ko talaga ‘yung character at never pa akong nakagawa ng ganito. Basta abangan niyo na lang.”
But now that Kim Chiu and Maja Salvador will be starring opposite each other in a teleserye, it’s inevitable that viewers will make comparisons as to who is the better actress. However for Maja, work should not affect friendship.
“Dahil mga artista kami pagdadaanan talaga namin ‘yung mga ganyang comparison. Sa amin naman ni Kim alam naman namin na trabaho lang. Mas mangingibabaw ‘yung friendship. Pareho na lang naming gagawing mahusay ‘yung mga characters namin. Sina Jade at Amber ‘yung mapapanood, hindi si Kim at Maja.”
Coco Martin said he is willing to set boundaries between him and his on-screen partner Maja Salvador in order to avoid tension with Matteo Guidicelli. “Mag-uusap munang mabuti ika-clarify ko kung papaano ba ise-set up yung trabaho, yung limitation.” he told ABS-CBN News.
“Pinili ko na lang manahimik bilang respeto na rin kay Matteo at kay Maja, siyempre ayaw ko nang magsalita against anybody” He explained.
“Mas better na sa akin bilang isang lalaki na manahimik na lang.”
According to Coco, he hasn't yet spoken to Maja and instead of dwelling on intrigues, he’d rather focus on his career.
Maja Salvador's "Thelma" premiered in more than 50 theaters last September 7 and already made P1,353,476 Million on its first five days!!!
The story of the movie “Thelma” is very good and inspiring, and should have been marketed better. Considered also it was given by a graded "A" by the Cinema Evaluation Board. We also think the incident involving the lead-star, Maja with her boyfriend Matteo Guidicelli and co-star Coco Martin seems have a “minor” effect and turns out a bad publicity for the film.
“Thelma” is directed by Paul Soriano and distributed by Star Cinema. Also in the movie are Tetchie Agbayani, John Arcilla, Sue Prado, Eliza Pineda and Jason Abalos.
Jason Abalos confessed that during the times that he and Maja Salvador were being paired as a love team, he almost had romantic feelings for the young actress. “Part siguro ‘yun ng pagiging close. Siguro matatawag na confusion. Pero eventually na-realize namin na mas masaya kami bilang magkaibigan.”
“Sobrang saya namin ni Maja bilang magkaibigan. Pwede masabing itong friendship namin eh panghabang buhay na. Wala kaming pretensions sa isa’t isa. Nagtutulungan kami. Parehas kaming galing probinsya.”
He only had praise for the actress for her performance in "Thelma" as an aspiring sprinter. “Wala na akong dapat i-advise sa kanya kasi alam niya ‘yung ginagawa niya. Magaling talaga siyang artista at mas nauna siya sa akin sa showbiz.”
Everything is well with Maja Salvador and boyfriend Matteo Guidicelli after having a misunderstanding week after a controversial fistfight between Guidicelli and actor Coco Martin.
On the September 13 episode of "Happy Yipee Yehey (HYY)", Maja was serenaded by Matteo, who happens to be one of the hosts of the show. (Watch the video here!)
Before Maja's guesting in HYY, Matteo already said that the controversy has made their relationship stronger.
Maja Salvador have decided not to speak about her relationship with Matteo Guidicelli and the issues they are involved. She also said that she don't want to update everything in public.
"We decided na not to update everything in public, di ba? Okay na 'yon. Okay na lang na alam niyo na na we're together."
Maja just gave a statement why she decide not to speak more about it. "Siguro sa amin na lang din yun. Siguro enough na na nalaman ng public na we're together. Hanggang do'n na lang."
"May mga inputs na kayong nalaman sa The Buzz, so yun nalang."
This coming September 30, a group of some lead stars of selected teleserye in ABS-CBN will fly to America for the Teleserye Royals 2011 U.S. Tour including Maja Salvador and Coco Martin of Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin that recently involved in the intrigue in the past Star Magic Ball.
"Sana makapag-usap kami [ni Coco] soon kasi meron kaming U.S. tour" Maja said.
"We're a loveteam. So, siguradong maaayos lahat. Makakapag-usap kami"
What do you think guys? Is everything going to be ok between Coco and Maja? I just wish it will and hope that didn't damage their career and their love team.
