Daniel Matsunaga Avoids Talking About Ex-GF Erich Gonzalez: 'Past Is Past So Let's Just Move On'

DANIEL MATSUNAGA is Cristine Reyes’ leading man in “Spirit of the Glass 2”. All the leading men in the movie are talents of Jonas Gaffud of Mercator, including Benjamin Alves, Enrico Cuenca and also beauty queen Maxine Medina who’s being officially introduced in the movie as Lizette, the girl who opened the portal to the world of the dead that allowed spirits to terrorize their barkada.

Daniel is really busy as he’s also in the cast of “Fallback” with Rhian Ramos and Zanjoe Marudo, and the Metro Filmfest entry, “Meant to Beh”, with Vic Sotto, Dawn Zulueta and Andrea Torres.

When asked about Erich Gonzalez, Daniel tried his best to avoid the issue. “I don’t want to talk about the past anymore,” he says. “Past is past, di ba? Also, she’s not part of our movie, so let’s just move on.”

Didn’t they see each other at the Star Magic Ball? “Yes, we did, and I said hi. Pero huwag na lang natin palakihin kasi this has been going forever na and it’s so tiring kasi it’s done, it’s past na.”

He seems to be more friendly with another ex-GF, Heart Evangelista, as there’s a video showing him, Heart and her husband, Sen. Chiz Escudero, together. “Yes. Masaya naman. As you can see sa video, we’re fine with each other. We’ve remained friends and I met her husband so, you know, we have no problem at all.”

Will he and Erich eventually be friends also? “I don’t know. No comment na lang, pero sana, maging ganun nga. I really prefer na ang mga ex ko, maging friends ko pa rin.”

So is he dating a new girl? “Yes, but non-showbiz. Bago pa lang. But it’s complicated, so hanggang dun na lang.”

How is it doing a horror flick like “Spirit of the Glass 2”? “We enjoyed working together nina Cristine and the big cast. But in the old house in Laguna where we shot the movie, there’s a room na when you enter, the feeling is so heavy, mabigat, eerie, parang you can feel a presence. And we learned later na doon pala namatay yung owner ng house. We asked the caretakers and they said may nakikita talaga sila roon.”
