As one of the hottest new stars in the Kapamilya network, Nadine Lustre admitted she is still getting used to handling fame especially when going out in public. "I go out pero with family. Yung dalawa ko kasing kapatid poste po so tinataguan ko sila. (laughs) Nag-ka-cap naman ako kasi mahirap din. Parang siyempre limited na lang yung time kung dudumugin. Kasi ganun yun na-experience ko na yung pag may sang lumapit, yung iba lalapit na rin. Hanggang sa maging malaking ano na yun so as much as possible nag-ka-cap ako,” she said during the On the Wings of Love Media Day held last October 12 inside ABS-CBN.
Just like her love team partner James Reid, Nadine said she also gets her share of bashers. "Minsan. Pag na-ba-bash siya, na-ba-bash din ako (laughs). Sabay kami. Minsan kasi nagiging masyado silang personal. Yung pati yung parents ko nadadamay, yung mga ganun. Pero ini-ignore ko na lang. Kasi kung papatulan mo sasabihin pa sa iyo pumapatol ka. So huwag na lang pansinin,” she explained.
Nadine said she knows the sacrifices of being part of a successful love team and understands fans who cannot accept it when she and James are linked to other people on or offscreen. "Hindi ko alam kung anong isasagot ko. Eh kasi normal naman yun kung super fanatic ka talaga kasi even before na-experience ko din yun before. Yung mga movies dati. Parang may gusto ako sila na magkatuluyan. So I think it’s normal naman. Thank you pa rin kasi still they support us. Me and James we’re a team. We’re partners in crime so kahit naman medyo parang in real life gusto nila kaming magkatuluyan, okay lang kasi sumusuporta pa rin naman sila sa amin,” she admitted.
Since she and James are both too busy at the moment to have a love life, Nadine said she is not worried if he would ever court another girl. "Eh kung meron naman sasabihin naman niya sa akin din namin. So if hindi niya sinasabi sa akin, usually there’s nothing to worry about,” she explained. As much as their fans want them to end up together, Nadine isn’t saying anything final. "Tignan natin pero ngayon kasi talagang focused kami. Kasi nag-wo-work siya ngayon so ayaw namin maging complicated kasi well kasi if magkaroon kami ng away or something siyempre mahirap magtrabaho pagka-meron pang ganun,” she added.
With people pitting their love team against another popular pair AlDub, Nadine said she is not in showbiz to compete in popularity. "Hindi ko rin alam eh kasi first time kong narinig yun. Ako ngayon hindi ako nag-so-social media. Parang we’re not competing naman kasi. We don’t look at things na parang ganun. Hindi naman competition yung tingin namin, parang pare-parehas kami ng henerasyon,” she shared.
The On the Wings of Love star also wanted to put to rest her rumored rift with Kathryn Bernardo whom she was seen talking to at a recent Kapamilya Thank You event. "Okay naman. Kasi sa amin naman wala naman talagang issue. Nag-uusap naman kami. About the prod number, ganyan. Nag-uusap pero hindi pa naman ganung level,” she admitted. In fact Nadine is even open to working with the Pangako Sa ‘Yo star in the future if there is an opportunity. "Opo. Why not naman po. Oo naman,” she added.
