Eugene Domingo said she’s at her happiest now, after she finally finds the balance between her personal and professional life.
During the press conference of her Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry ‘Ang Babae sa Septic Tank 2,’ the actress confirmed that she’s now in a relationship with an Italian film critic named Danilo.
She revealed that they met almost three years ago at the Udine Far East Film Festival in Italy where her movie, ‘Barber’s Tales’ won an Audience Award.
He said the Italian film critic, who is older than her, approached her when she was not even looking for a relationship.
The actress said it was all perfect timing. He came up to her and approached her when he was not ready.
It also helps that they like the same things and have a love affair with films.
He understands her work and respects her profession. He’s really proud of her, that she is an actress and that she practises her craft.
Even though they are living in different continents, Domingo said they somehow make it works. They really miss each other but it helps them more to be creative and they both appreciate their time together.
‘If you like the person, you will make time. If you really love a person, there’s always a way,’ Eugene said.
She’s excited to share that she’s flying to Italy to be with Danilo for Christmas and they got the approval of their respective families.
Domingo added that she has so much to be thankful for because she met someone who will complement her and understands her.
Asked if she’s ready to settle down, start a family or maybe move to Italy, the actress said they want to take one step at a time but she’s hoping for the best.
Domingo added that what’s important is that they have mutual understanding and respect.
