They were dared to be honest.
And Elmo Magalona didn't shy away from baring his feelings for his "My Fairy Tail Love Story" co-star during their interview on "Tonight With Boy Abunda" aired on Valentine's Day.
Love was truly in the air for the two, with Magalona describing Janella Salvador as his "one and only" when asked to introduce her to his late father, rap icon Francis M, in a fictional scenario.
"Hi papa, this is my one and only," he said, pointing to Salvador during the late night talk show's segment dubbed "2 Be Honest".
For her part in bringing "kilig" to the episode, the actress said that he would rate her love for Magalona a solid 11 in a scale where 10 is the highest.
"The mere fact that you're the only person or guy I've ever had this bond with says a lot," she told her love-team partner.
The pair have long been rumored to be a couple, ever since they got closer while on the set of "Born For You," their first series together.
But both of them have maintained that they have yet to take their friendship up another notch.
Their sweet interview came a day after Magalona surprised Salvador with a bouquet of roses during the red carpet premiere of their movie.
"My Fairy Tail Love Story," directed by Percival Intalan, stars Salvador as a girl whose life is similar to that of a pampered princess. She then wakes up one day as a mermaid unable to speak normally and can only sing her thoughts.
The plot sees her and her best friend, portrayed Magalona, trying to figure out how to return her to normal.
It is already showing in cinemas nationwide.
