Nadine Lustre said that she is still overwhelmed by the success that came her way after she headlined the hit movie Diary ng Panget. "As I’ve said before hindi pa nagsi-sink in sa akin like everything happened so fast like less than a year when DNP (Diary ng Panget) started, April siya nag-showing then after that my career skyrocketed na, I mean it’s not all the way to the top yet but it's going there so parang ako I am just really thankful and I feel really blessed na ang dami-daming projects na pumapasok," she said in an interview with Push.com.ph during the Maaga ang Pasko event of Jollibee.
The actress admitted that there was a point in time that she almost gave up on her career. "I mean I don't know sobrang saya ko lang now kasi I had this point last year in my life na I thought na wala na, my career went down as in really, really down so ‘yun I am really thankful kay God siyempre and to all my supporters, my family na nandito ako, lahat naman sila dala-dala ko sila sa success."
The My App Boyfie star shared that her parents are very supportive of her career. "My dad drives me everywhere, when I have scheds my mom goes with me. Sobrang supportive nila. ‘Yun nga ‘yung dad ko nakakatuwa naging commercial model na rin siya [sa Jollibee] ‘yun po," she said.
Nadine revealed that she wants to follow in the footsteps of Angel Locsin. She also wants to work with the former The Legal Wife star. “Gusto ko [maka-work si] Angel Locsin. I mean, I’ve watched her ever since. Ako parang I want my career to be like hers na parang medyo action ang dating ayon and I’m pretty sure ‘pag makatrabaho ko siya sana, medyo action ‘yung projects." Like Angel, Nadine is open to also doing fantasy-superhero projects." Yeah that’s a blessing still. All the blessings I take them in."
As the new endorser of Jollibee, Nadine shared that it is her favorite food chain and that it feels great to be endorsing it. “I’m really happy kasi I grew up with Jollibee talaga. When I was younger I used to have parties with Jollibee all the time. My sister is a huge fan of Jollibee and for me kasi they celebrate families eh, ako I love my family ‘yun po and it feels great, I am really happy,” she said.
