Kylie: Dad, Aljur is a good guy
Young actress Kylie Padilla admits her father, action star Robin Padilla, still does not approve of her relationship with boyfriend Aljur Abrenica in spite of all her efforts to “defend” it.
“I really want Papa to realize that my boyfriend is a good person,” the 20-year-old actress tells the Inquirer.
With Robin, Kylie says, a couple is not totally committed until they’re married. “That’s where my dad and I differ,” she says. “AJ and I are too young for marriage. We still have unrealized dreams. For now, we simply treat each other as an inspiration.”
But Kylie insists her father trusts her. “He just doesn’t want me to get hurt.” Aljur is “a very quiet guy” she adds, and would rather discuss his intentions for her with Robin than with the media.
She is very comfortable around his family, Kylie says, “but his parents seem afraid, too, that we may get too serious too soon.”
Aljur, 22, is her first boyfriend and Robin isn’t the only one opposed to the relationship. Fans of Aljur’s screen partner, Kris Bernal, are even more rabidly against it. But Kylie has learned to keep her cool despite the online bashing that she gets. “I never answer back,” she says.
Kylie stars in GMA 7’s drama series, “Unforgettable,” directed by Gina Alajar. Marinel R. Cruz
