Actor John Lloyd Cruz is one of the country's prime leading men, and it's no wonder he's got the girls going gaga over him, thanks to his charisma and his sense of humor. He might already be attached to actress Shaina Magdayao, but that doesn't make him any less appealing. Just this August, he appeared on the cover of YES! Magazine's 100 Most Beautiful Stars special, and now he's featured as one of the double covers for Cosmopolitan Philippines's October issue.
In the magazine, John Lloyd talks about what things men believe make a woman a keeper. Read on for a preview of what he said.
1. YOU'VE GOT THE LOOKS, AND YOU CARRY YOURSELF WELL.
"Malaking factor talaga 'yung itsura. Let's be honest, sa simula, what strikes you is the physical. Also, 'yung babae, she has this x-factor, and hindi mo alam kung ano ba 'yun. (Looks are really a big factor. Let's be honest, at first, what strikes you is the physical. Also, the girl has this x-factor, and you don't know what it is.) There's mystery, and it makes you want to know more. She has to exude inner beauty: sa tayo niya, sa galaw niya, the way she carries herself. (She has to exude inner beauty: in the way she stands, the way she moves, and the way she carries herself.)"
2. YOU GIVE THE GUY FREEDOM TO DO WHAT HE WANTS.
"It helps to do things separately para may individual space pa rin kayo. Outside work, gusto ko lang na binibigyan ka ng own personal space, para I have time to see my friends, time to do the things I can do on my own. This way, you can be a better partner. This is all about respect eh."
3. YOU NEVER RUN OUT OF THINGS TO TALK WITH HIM.
"Minsan bigyan mo lang ng five minutes of conversation madali mo nang masasabi na you can be with that person. All it takes for me is five minutes to say kung boring 'yung tao or hindi. (Sometimes you just need five minutes of conversation to be able to tell if you can be with that person. All it takes for me is five minutes to say whether a person is boring or not.)"
