Diary ng Pangit star Nadine Lustre celebrated her 21st birthday last October 31 with a Halloween party at The Glass Garden in Pasig City.
Nadine spoke with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press about her Halloween birthday celebration.
“Actually birthday ko Halloween po talaga, October 31, kaya ang theme is Halloween and the party is called The Witching Hour.”
Nadine’s birthday trended worldwide on Twitter, JaDine fans looked forward to her celebration and her Halloween costume.
Birthday girl and guests were suited for Halloween; Nadine wore an all-black long-sleeved dress, looking very gothic.
“Yung outfit ko kasi, ang peg namin is medyo gothic kasi the theme is a bit Victorian kaya maraming candelabras and everything... Masasabi sigurong vampire, kamukha ko si Mina na wife ni Count Dracula. So I guess yun, very vampiric nga yung outfit ko," Nadine explained.
At 21, the teen actress has a blooming career, a loveteam with James Reid with a strong following, loyal friends, and a loving family.
Nadine hopes she won't be led astray now that she has reached the legal age.
“Pinaka-wish ko na hindi ako maligaw, kasi siyempre 21 na, I’m free na to do anything. Meron din tayong mga moments na maliligaw tayo, baka may magawa tayong mali, mga bagay na hindi naman dapat since malaya na, 21 na kasi," she said.
"Sana lang magpatuloy yung pagiging responsible ko, at yung pagiging mabait na anak ko sa parents ko."
She said she wishes she can be more careful in all aspects of her life, now that she’s come of age.
“Yun nga po, mapusok nga. Siyempre hindi rin naman maiiwasan magkaroon ng mistakes, pero ako sana, maging strong enough ako na malagpasan ko ang lahat ng yan nang maayos, nang hindi nade-depress at walang problema."
Now that she’s “free to do anything,” Nadine said she's looking forward to having more freedom from her parents.
“Actually I haven’t planned yet kasi sobrang busy namin kaka-plan for the party. Hindi ko pa naiisip, pero hopefully, yung parents ko medyo maging maluwag na sila sa akin.
“Well, maluwag naman sila, but still, I’m kinda old enough na rin to do my own thing. Siguro I’ll just keep enjoying life.”
Nadine may be a newcomer in the industry, but she's already being compared to the likes of Kathryn Bernardo. Rather than take advantage of fame, she prefers to keep on the right track.
“Ako naman, it’s very flattering to hear [na ako] yung next big star. I’ve been here for a few months pa lang, sobrang saglit pa lang, wala pang one year and then natatag na ako as 'the next big star.' Sobrang nakaka-flatter and I’m very honored na yun ang iniisip ng ibang tao sa akin.
“I’ll just keep working hard and I’ll keep doing what I do, kasi it’s working so far. Maganda yung nagiging feedback ng mga tao, natutuwa sila sa akin so I’ll keep doing that.”
