“We don’t owe you any of our personal lives.”

This was Kim Chiu’s sharp statement after being cornered about whether she and onscreen partner Xian Lim are a couple behind the camera.

The 23-year-old actress was speaking during a press conference held Tuesday for “Bride for Rent,” her second film with Lim in a lead role.

The Star Cinema production, directed by Mae Czarina Cruz, will hit theaters on January 15.

Chiu, who was seated beside Lim during the event, was asked to answer with a “yes” or “no” when sought for confirmation as to whether she and her leading man are in a relationship.

Ako, sinagot narin namin to sa last presscon namin [ni Xian],” Chiu said. “We don’t owe you any of our personal lives siguro. You can think whatever you want to think as long as you’re happy when you watch us on TV, nakikita niyo kung paano kami ma-inlove, ganyan. And ‘yun na ‘yon.”

And lahat naman tayo merong mga hindi dapat i-share o dapat i-share, and it’s our choice, and I hope you guys respect that,” she said.

Asked the same question, Lim said, “In time naman po malalaman naman po ng lahat kung ano ‘yung status, kung anuman po ‘yung gustong malaman nila.”

Pero I don’t think this is the time, this is the perfect time para magsalita kung anuman po ang nangyayari, kung anuman po ‘yung… Pero in time, we won’t be selfish about it, we’ll be more than happy to share it with you guys,” Lim said.

Referring to Chiu’s statement, another reporter told the actress he felt offended. Chiu and Lim’s relationship, the reporter added, appears to be all for show, and that it is supposedly “fooling” their audience.

“Ay, umabot na po ba tayo sa gano’n?” Chiu answered. “Atsaka ‘yung movie po ‘yung pino-promote namin, hindi kaming dalawa.”
