Real-life sweethearts Maja Salvador and Matteo Guidicelli team up on the silver screen for My Cactus Heart, an upcoming Star Cinema film. At the press conference for the movie on January 14, reports, Maja revealed she wanted Matteo to be her last boyfriend and eventual husband.

"Sabi ko nga, love is not enough," she said, explaining why she wants her relationship with Matteo to end at the altar. "Siya ginagawa niyang lahat para maging masaya ako, yung pamilya ko. Yun nga, never siyang nag-stop iparamdam kung gaano niya ako kamahal. (He does everything to make me happy as well as my family. He never stops showing me how much he loves me.)"

Among the sweetest things Matteo had done for her, she noted, were putting post-its around her room telling her why he loved her as well as spreading flower petals all over her room.

Meanwhile, Matteo said he also saw himself ending up with Maja in the future. "Oo naman. She's a wonderful person." He also added that on a scale of 1 to 10, his love for Maja was an 11.

"We've gone through a lot together," he explained. "Ang dami na rin naming pinagdaanan, at alam kong marami pa kaming pagdadaanan sa buhay. (We've gone through a lot, and I know we'll go through more in life.) I accept everything as a challenge. God really has [a] purpose for us, and He'll lead the way."

Matteo also mentioned how understanding Maja was after the alleged fistfight he and actor Coco Martin had over her. "You know, communication is number one in a relationship," he said. "Hindi lang sa lovers, kundi sa mga kaibigan din; communication and respect."

In an interview on The Buzz the next day, Maja did say that while she and Matteo were going strong, they didn't plan on getting married in the near future. "Marami pa siyang kailangang patunayan (He still has a lot to prove)," she is quoted as saying on "Ako rin marami pang kailangang patunayan. Ang tagal pa eh. Seven to 10 years pa. Kailangan ko pa kumayod para sa pamilya ko. (I also have a lot to prove. It's still going to take a while. Seven to 10 years. I need to work hard for my family for now.)"
