Nadine Lustre admitted that she could somehow relate to her character in her upcoming movie Para Sa Hopeless Romantic. Nadine plays Rebecca. The actress relayed that there was a point in her life when she had difficulty moving on from her past love like her character in the film.
“’Yung character ko kasi dito hindi maka-move on tapos pagnakikita sila ni Nikko (James Reid), hopeless romantic siya eh…” She added, “Parang nasasaktan siya, hindi siya maka move on. Actually yes [nakaka-relate ako] don din pero eventually naka-move on na ako kasi na-experience ko din ‘yung ganon na pagnakikita ko siya parang I don’t know, parang nag-iiba ‘yung mood ko, before naman, pero hindi na ngayon, iba na ngayon before po ganon,” she said during the blogger’s conference of the movie.
According to Nadine, the movie will have its dramatic scenes but it would not be that heavy. “Hindi naman siya na super seryoso, meron lang talaga na mga scenes na medyo madrama, hindi naman siya heavy drama, ‘yung mga kilig po kasi na mga eksena dito mas more on kay Julia (Barretto) at Inigo (Pascual) na nangyayari. The kilig part meron din naman kami ni James kasi parang flashback ‘yung sa amin, ‘yung present talaga, hindi na kami break na kami, sa college na, ganyan.”
Nadine has already worked with James Reid on two successful films, Diary ng Panget and Talk Back and You’re Dead. With their growing closeness, the actress shared some of the things she admires the most about the actor. “Ako naman for me well pagkasama ko kasi si James, laging masaya lalo na pag ‘yun nga madaling araw na medyo baliw na siya, nagjo-joke na siya, ganon siya,” he relayed.
She added that James cheers her up whenever she is down. ”Tapos he has great timing like when I have problems parang nagpapatawa siya. I don’t think he knows naman ‘pag down ako, wala lang, parang on time lang siya palagi.”
