Jennylyn Mercado and her ex-boyfriend Mark Herras arrived together at the Yahoo Celebrity Awards 2014 held at SM MOA on July 18. Many were surprised that Jen can be friends with one of her exes.
She said she’s also okay with Patrick Garcia, the father of her son, Alex Jazz.
Jen and Mark want to be role models to former loveteams and ex-couples. They want to show that it is possible for exes to be friends later on.
Jen and Mark worked together on GMA-7’s “Rhodora X,” but the actress denied that they have gotten back together since then. For her, Mark is a close friend and someone she’s most comfortable with in showbiz.
Although it was hard at first to be friends with someone you loved and who hurt you, Jen said it is still possible because time can heal the wounds.
But when asked if she’s friends with Luis Manzano, who broke up with her late last year and is now with Angel Locsin, Jen said it will still take time before they can talk to each other again.
Meanwhile, because Jen recently won an award for her contrabida role in “Rhodora X,” where she played multiple roles, is she now ready to become a full-fledged contrabida?
That was her first time to win an award as a contrabida, and she did not expect it, Jen said. She added that it was easier to be a contrabida than to be the protagonist in a story.
