MANILA (Mabuhay) — NADINE Lustre does not feel the pressure from fans to make her reel life teamup with James Reid real.
The “On The Wings of Love” actress said that from the beginning, their supporters are well aware of their friendship behind the camera.
“From the very beginning sinasabi na namin sa mga tao na ni hindi kami, na super friends kami at walang pressure na maging kami. Na kailangan maging sweet kami off cam, hindi kami ganun. Pero we’re super close din naman talaga,” she said.
Lustre added: “Hindi naman namin kailangan i-push yung sarili namin sa isa’t isa kasi nagwo-work naman siya at may chemistry naman. Ang foundation ng kahit na anong relationship ay friendship kaya mas importante yun than anything else.
She also said there’s no conscious effort for them to act differently just to please the fans.
“Hindi na namin kailangan pag-usapan yan (romance) kasi alam namin pareho kung saan kami dapat mag focus at ano ang dapat na unahin namin,” she said.
Some may notice that Reid is protective of her but the actress said it is because they always have each other’s back.
“Very protective naman siya sa akin ever since na nagsimula kami. We are a team e, partners in crime kaya dapat tulungan kami,” she said.
“Ignore na lang as much as I can… delete na lang. Ayoko din na nakikita yung ibang JaDine na nakikipag-away kasi pag may nakikita sila na nega, yun ang instinct nila.”
In the same interview, the Kapamilya star thanked the fans for their continued support to “On The Wings of Love.”
“I’m always speechless pagdating sa mga supporters namin kasi lagi kaming nagte-trend and laging maraming pumupunta sa mga mall shows namin ni James. (I’m) really, really speechless. Thank you,” she said.
Lustre added the popular evening series has been extended to February 2016.
Aside from the series, the two are expected to star opposite Vice Ganda and Coco Martin in a Metro Manila Film Festival movie. (MNS)
