Nadine Lustre shared that she didn’t expect to achieve the kind success that she is enjoying right now just right after her first movie with James Reid titled Diary ng Panget. “To be honest I didn’t expect, even the success of the Diary ng Panget, I didn’t expect it pero we are just really happy na parang it’s our first movie and then it skyrocketed. Ako I fell so blessed na after a few months after Diary ng Panget may follow up project and this time with two big production houses so I feel so blessed,” she said.
She also said that she was really surprised that her team-up with James would turn out to be as massive as it is now. “I’m honestly surprised kasi biglaan eh even ‘yung sinabi sa akin na may project ako with James sabi ko medyo kinabahan ako kasi parang magwo-work kaya ‘to, I mean magugustuhan kaya ng tao? Nagulat na lang talaga ko na it really worked,” she said.
Nadine is already ecstatic for everyone to see their new film Talk Back and You’re Dead. She relayed that she was a big fan of the book. “Really excited kasi ‘yun nga po since it’s my second movie sobrang iba siya sa Diary ng Panget, I mean the book is really good. I am a fan of the book after reading it and I became a fan tapos like the other die-hard fans ng mga book, excited din akong makita na one of my favorite stories na ipalabas sa big screen so I’m really excited.”
When asked if she is open to the possibility that they would turn their reel romance to real romance, she commented briefly, “Depende sa kanya, depende sa kanya talaga.” But she admitted that she finds James really special. “Well si James kasi at first he’s the type of person… ako I like ‘yung mga tao na at first hindi sila parang showy pa and as time passes by and while you know each other mas lalong nakikita mo ‘yung good qualities niya talaga and he's like that.”
