Nathalie Hart doesn't think being pregnant will affect her career in a negative way. "Ngayon naman, hindi porke't nabuntis, mawawalan ka na ng career."


Nathalie Heart's pregnancy came just when her career has taken off.

The 26-year-old actress has projects with big film studios like Viva Films and Star Cinema. She's also in an afternoon teleserye.

But Nathalie has chosen to focus on the happy developments in her life, instead of questioning their timing in terms of her career's progress.

She explained, "Hindi ko na masasabi, kasi kapag sinabi kong sumabay sa career ko, nandoon na tayo. Medyo sumabay naman talaga siya.

“Pero that’s the reality of it, nandito na yun, e, ano ang magagawa ko? 

"Hindi ko naman masasabing bad timing siya. Kasi kapag sinabi kong bad timing, parang ang pangit naman."

Nathalie also chooses to have a positive mindset for the sake of her daughter.

She continued, “At saka, ang pangit din for me. I cannot be negative for now. If I’ll be negative, ano ang mangyayari sa anak ko?

"Hindi puwede kasi nagbubuntis ako, hindi ko kailangang isipin kung ano ang nawala sa akin. Kailangan kong isipin kung ano ang darating sa akin.

“Kasi, kung ano ang nawala sa akin, hindi ko na maibabalik yun. Kailangan kong isipin kung ano ba ang puwede mong makuha.”

The actress added, “At saka ngayon naman, hindi porke’t nabuntis, mawawalan ka na ng career or anything. It’s just that it’s different. Hindi na ko katulad ng iba.

“And there’s a lot of actresses naman na may mga anak and they’re very successful.”

Nathalie sees herself coming back to showbiz after giving birth. 

She said, “Tuloy-tuloy ako kung mabibigyan ako ng opportunity, siyempre. Sa pelikula kasi, meron naman nga akong babalikan. Pero sana, kung may mabalikan akong teleserye, yun ang gusto kong makuha.”

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) caught up with Nathalie at the premiere night of her latest movie Abay Babes, a sexy-comedy film which also starts Roxanne Barcelo, Meg Imperial, Kylie Versoza and Cristine Reyes.

She said of her role, “Ako yung pinakamaganda raw sa grupo, pero gustung-gusto kong maging artista, pero hindi naman ako naging artista. Commercial model lang ako.

“Malayung-malayo yung totoong—well, kasi kapag sinabi siguro dahil artista ko, pero yung Emerald na character ko, gusto niyang mag-artista. Malayung-malayo dahil magka-iba kami ng ugali sa totoong buhay.

“Si Emerald, ambisyosa siya kahit wala naman siyang trabaho. Magsisinungaling siya para lang maganda ang image niya sa mga kaibigan niya. Comedy kasi ang film, pero may drama rin.”

Nathalie revealed it was awkward among the five lead stars when they began shooting the movie. 

She said, “Noong una kasi hindi kami nagtsi-chikahan, awkward kasi siyempre, anong chika mo sa kanila? Hindi mo naman sila kilala.

"Noong time nung second taping namin, yun na yung nagsisimula. Nagtsi-chikahan na kami about life, current relationship, past relationships, happy ba kami o hindi, ganun na kalalim.”

The actress became closest to Cristine Reyes, who has a daughter named Amara. 

Nathalie said, “Si Cristine yung chini-chika ko palagi. Out of everyone, siya yung chika lang ako nang chika.

“Kasi ano, very transparent siya.

“At noong time na nagsu-shoot kami, hindi ko alam na buntis na pala ako. 'Tapos, noong nalaman ko, mas lalong chinika ko palagi si Cristine.

"Siyempre, may asawa na siya, may anak na. Iba na yung mentality niya.

“Hindi na puwedeng ang isipin niya lang yung ikasasaya niya, kailangan ang importante, yung anak niya.”

Cristine's advice to the mom- and wife-to-be?

“'Follow your heart and mind, but don’t be stupid.'”
