SPOT.ph's list of would-never-dare-ask questions for today's controversial people continues.
1. Ruffa Gutierrez
Reportedly dating (but won't admit it) much-younger actor John Lloyd Cruz, the actress, host and beauty title holder, has been the subject of her mother's ire and rude comments from JLC fans who think cougar love isn't the right way to go. She reportedly updated her Facebook status to "it's complicated" and later erased her account from Facebook altogether.
The question: What does "It's complicated" really mean? And why did you announce it on Facebook?
2. John Lloyd Cruz
Young actor John Lloyd Cruz has admitted to "hanging out" with Betty La Fea co-star Ruffa Gutierrez, but repeatedly denies any romantic entanglement despite paparazzi evidence of the two entering a swanky Beverly Hills hotel and shopping in LA.
The question: Why does it seem like you're dressing to look older these days? What happened to your Liz Uy days of sharp style?
3. Freddie Aguilar
Filipino music icon Freddie Aguilar (whose song "Anak" was a global hit in 1979) called internationally famed singers Charice Pempengco and Arnel Pineda "monkeys" who ape foreign acts instead of promoting OPM.
The question: How would you feel if someone called your daughter Maegan a "monkey" for singing covers? What can you say about Marc Abaya?
4. Charice Pempengco

The question: What do you think of Freddie Aguilar?
5. Brillante Mendoza
Cannes' 2009 Best Director is currently in Switzerland as a judge for the 62nd Film Festival Locarno. Mendoza declined showing his award-winning film Kinatay at Cinemalaya Cinco, saying "I have nothing more to prove."
The question: Were you afraid local critics wouldn't have liked Kinatay had it been shown at Cinemalaya?
6. Cristine Reyes

The question: Why didn't your sister Ara Mina attend your FHM proclamation? Isn't she happy for your success?

9. Vicki Belo
Dra. Vicki Belo's name was dragged into the sex video scandal involving her ex-boyfriend, Hayden Kho. Belo admitted that she "really needs a man in her life" in her one-one interview on Probe Profiles.
The question: Have you found a replacement for Hayden Kho or are the two of you just laying low until the buzz dies down?
10. Piolo Pascual
Piolo Pascual and KC Concepcion say they grew close while filming Lovers in Paris, with revelations of "love letters"and "old-fashioned ligaw." Piolo was present at the screening of his indie film "Manila" during the opening of the Cinemalaya Film Festival with KC Concepcion as his "guest".
