Nadine Lustre admitted she also gets affected by rumors romantically linking her onscreen partner, James Reid, to their “Para sa Hopeless Romantic” co-star, Julia Barretto.
Lustre noted that some netizens keep on bashing Reid because of this.
“Apektado po ako dahil ka-trabaho ko po si James and siyempre hindi po maganda na siya ang tinitira ng bashers. Aminado naman po kami na we are not together, pero sana po hindi maapektuhan ang pagta-trabaho namin sa isa’t isa,” she said.
Lustre, however, explained that she has nothing against Barretto regardless of these rumors.
“She’s really nice po. Sa ‘Para sa Hopeless Romantic,’ we talked a lot. Wala naman akong issue. Me and James, we are open naman po. Kung gusto niya, sige okay lang, go. Basta, as much as possible, sana maalagaan pa rin niya ang career niya. Okay naman po sa akin. Ang gusto ko lang po, magawa pa rin niya ang nagagawa niya dati, maging okay pa rin ang career niya. Depende naman po sa kanya kung ano ang gusto niya gawin,” she said.
Lustre, Reid and Barretto were co-stars in the movie “Para Sa Hopeless Romantic,” although Barretto was paired in the film with Inigo Pascual.
Lustre said she just wants to keep mum about the rumors because she considers it a non-issue.
“I really don’t mind the issue. Kapag pinansin ko kasi, ako pa na ka-love team, lalong lalala. Ayaw kong lumala ang sitwasyon kasi baka mas ma-stress ang lahat ng tao,’ she said.
In fact, Lustre said she is opening to work on a project with Reid and Barretto.
“Opo, why not? Nasa Viva na po iyon. It’s still an opportunity. It’s still a project so kukunin ko pa rin po iyon,” she said.
Reid and Lustre were launched as a love team in 2014. Since then, they have appeared in a number of TV shows and in three movies, which were both blockbuster hits. (MNS)
