The raw, honest love story of characters Gio and Joan in the new JaDine film “Never Not Love You” hits close to home for a lot of us –including James Reid and Nadine Lustre themselves. Two years after they came out with their relationship to the public, they seem to have changed and grown a lot together, something that the reel-to-real couple is proud of.
The singer-actor, for one, couldn’t help but single out his relationship with his love team partner turned girlfriend as the reason for his growth.
During the presscon for “Never Not Love You” on Saturday, March 17, James Reid professed his love for Nadine, and explained how it was different from all the romances he had in the past. According to him, their relationship has helped him grow as an individual.
“For me, I’ve experienced a different kind love with Nadine compared sa mga past relationships ko. This has been more mature and I’ve grown a lot.”
Of course, it also helps that the two, collectively known as JaDine, first started as friends and developed feelings for each other naturally. On her part, Nadine explained how their friendship became a romantic relationship.
“Nag-start po talaga kami na magkaibigan kami, so talagang nag-start po kami sa wala, then friendship. Yung love po namin ni James ngayon, yung relationship po namin, sobrang dami ko pong natutunan dahil po doon. Like what I said kanina, nag-grow po ako nang sobra because of that love.”
Meanwhile, it’s no wonder why James seemed super inspired when asked when asked by Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) to describe love with regards to the movie’s tagline, “Ang pag-ibig ay masarap, madali, forever, bulls*t.”
“Love for me, like I said earlier, it really helped me grow a lot. I think it depends on who the person you’re with because sometimes love is just really passionate and crazy. Then, sometimes it really helps you grow to become a better person.”
