Kathryn Bernardo said that she is now at ease knowing that she has finally met Nadine Lustre who is constantly being compared to her. “Kagaya ng sinabi niya, buti nga na-break na ‘yung ice finally, thanks to Bang (Pineda, stylist) kasi ang hirap na madami ang kuwento tapos parang kami nauunahan agad ‘yung impression so happy kami na finally na nag-meet kami and I am looking forward na sana pag sa ASAP mas makasama ko siya,” she stated in an interview during the Pangako Sa’yo presscon.
The Teen Queen further stressed that there was never been an issue between her and the Para sa Hopeless Romantic star. “Wala naman talaga dapat. Ang problema naunahan natin nga, mga ganon,” she said. Nadine has expressed her admiration for Kathryn’s work and for that Kath is thankful. The Pangako Sa’yo star extended her congratulatory words for the success of Nadine’s new movie. “Gusto ko rin i-congratulate sila sa movie nila.”
She added that there is no awkwardness now since they finally meet each other and she hopes that she will have the opportunity to work with Nadine in the future. “Wala na [awkwardness], alam mo ‘yun nag-uusap na kami and siguro mas makilala ko pa siya pag nakasama ko pa siya sa iba pang mga gagawin.”
There are numerous comments about Kath’s similarity with Nadine’s physical features. Kathryn remarked that she doesn’t see anything wrong if people are saying that they look alike. “Okay naman kung ‘yun ang nakikita nila, siguro pareho kaming morena, Filipina and wala akong nakikitang masama na ma-compare sa kanya.”
Kathryn hopes onscreen partner Daniel Padilla will also get the chance to speak with James Reid who is being pitted against the Teen King. “I’m sure naman na ang mga lalaki ang bilis lang mag- jive, mag basketball lang ganyan, kulang lang siguro kami lahat ng time, ganyan, lahat busy kami. I’m sure yes magcli-clik sila,” she said.
