‘Open po talaga ako kasi hindi mo naman talaga masasabi. Baka bukas meron kang makilala na lesbian na bigla kang ma-inlove kasi binibigyan ka niya ng tamang pagmamahal na hindi mo nakukuha sa iba o sa mga naging past (na karelasyon) mo.’

Actress Yen Santos believes those who are into same-sex relationship experience love as heterosexuals do.

“Ang love ay hindi naman po nakukuha sa gender. Hindi ka na in-love na dahil sa babae siya or lalaki siya,” said she who has lots of gay friends. “Mas marami akong kaibigang bakla (kesa hindi) at nakikita ko na nagkakaroon ng true love (sa kanila).”

Is she open to getting into one, we asked.

“Open po talaga ako kasi hindi mo naman talaga masasabi. Baka bukas meron kang makilala na lesbian na bigla kang ma-inlove kasi binibigyan ka niya ng tamang pagmamahal na hindi mo nakukuha sa iba o sa mga naging past (na karelasyon) mo,” she added.

Has she ever been wooed by someone of same gender, we asked.

“Siguro nu’ng grades school. Parang may nagpapa-cute pa cute lang. Hindi pa ‘yun seryosohan. Pero kung ngayon, wala pa naman po.”

As to having a relationship with gay guy, she said: “”Bading siya? Eh kasi kung bading siya hindi niya ako gugustuhin.

“Pero sabi ko nga, depende. Hindi ko masasabi kung anong tinadhana. Kasi ngayon kahit lalaki hindi pa ako nakakakita ng magmamahal sa akin. (laughs)”

In fact, according to Yen, one of her ex-suitors just came out of the closet.

“Kaya sinasabi ko na hindi natin masasabi na ma-inlove pala tayo sa bakla or mai-inlove tayo. Parang break na kami hindi ko pa alam, tapos parang after five years, four years tsaka ko nalaman (na out na siya). Hindi na kami nag-uusap pero happy ako para sa kanya.”

Yen may have been single for years now and she sometimes think about that romantic feeling.

“Naiinip na puso ko minsan. Ang tagal, nasan na ba,” she added in jest. “Pero siguro sa tagal nasanay ka ng mag-isa pero minsan naiisip mo masarap pa din ‘yung may someone na alam mong magte-text sayo, magke-care, mag-go-good morning, goodnight.

“Merong nagpaparamdam pero choosy lang ako. After ilang days ayoko ng mag-reply. Pero nakakatuwa na meron pa ring willing na mag-pursue… Baka nga rin hindi pa rin ako ready.”

Something different

Well, with her being “open” to those things, Yen had come to realize it would be good to celebrate her 10th anniversary in show business in 2020 with a project in that vein.

“Exciting magkaroon ng lesbian movie parang ‘Below Her Mouth,’” she said. “‘Blue Is The Warmest Colour,’ isa pa ‘yun, todo ‘yun! Parang hindi ‘yung sa ganu’n level. Hindi ko kaya.”

“Depende siguro, ‘pag gumawa ako ng ganu’n ‘yung trusted din na director at maganda ‘yung materyal para hindi naman masayang ‘yung mga gan’ung eksena,” Yen added.

If ever, she wants to have screen time with the likes of Angel Aquino and Anne Curtis.

Meanwhile, after her defunct drama series “Halik,” Yen will be seen in a lighter story via “Two Love You.” The movie also stars Hashtag Kid Yambao and Lassy Marquez. Directed by Benedict Mique, and produced by Ogie Diaz who also wrote the script, it opens Nov. 13 in cinemas nationwide.
