ACTRESS Nadine Lustre is unfazed by the negative reactions to her comments on rumors that she is already living under one roof with boyfriend James Reid.
In a recent television interview, the Kapamilya star was asked about circulating rumors that she and her boyfriend are now living in one house. Her response was, "If that was true, so what?"
On Thursday's press conference of Sony Philippines, Lustre's newest endorsement, the 23-year-old remained positive and unaffected by the negative criticisms after her controversial remark.
Lustre said she cannot and does not try to please everyone.
"Normal naman talaga na hind mapi-please lahat. For me naman, hindi ako nagfi-filter ng mga isasagot kasi bakit naman ako magsisinungalin di ba? Ganito ako, kung ayaw ninyo ako pero salamat na lang din sa mga sumusuporta siyempre," she said.
Her relationship with Reid was also not affected by the issue. She said they try to be open to each other and face issues this head on.
"Kami naman ni James, ayaw namin nung nagli-lie about sa kung ano yung nangyayari sa amin. But then again, yung mga ibang bagay na pa na yan, parang di naman kailangan i-broadcast or sabihin sa iba. Para sa amin na lang yun," she said.
Lustre added that her parents are not affected by the issue because they know the truth.
"They know me. I don't hide anything from them," she said.
Meanwhile, the television actress is thankful for the overwhelming support she received during the FHM 100 Sexiest Women poll.
Lustre shared that at first, she and Reid were surprised that her name was among the showbiz personalities included in the list, but later on felt flattered to be voted by the patrons of the magazine as the sexiest Filipina this 2017.
"Gusto ko magpasalamat sa lahat ng bumoto sa akin. Sa JaDine fans and non-JaDine din. Sa FHM, for recognizing kasi according nga sa kanila, yung definition ng sexy is every year nagbabago 'yan," she said.
"Nagulat kaming lahat na bakit parang nasa listahan nga but then this year, okay naman kasi kinuwento ko sa kanya (James), sabi ko tingin nga ng FHM iba-iba yung sexiness every year."
Asked if she's ready to accept sexy roles, Lustre said she's ready to take on what's appropriate for her age.
"Nagtwo-two piece naman ako sa beach kasi normal naman po yun e. But then, yung sa projects yung sexiness hindi naman super sexy pero yung sakto lang sa age ko. Kasi 23 na din naman po ako so pwede nang konting sexiness," she ended.
Lustre garnered 491,039 votes online during the two-and-a-half month polling period. She was followed by Kim Domingo, Rhian Ramos, Jessy Mendiola and Ellen Adarna. (SunStar Philippines)
