James Reid and Nadine Lustre are consistent about the positive effect of their relationship in their lives.
At the press conference of their upcoming movie Never Not Love You last Saturday, March 17, both James and Nadine, or popularly known as JaDine, mentioned that their love for each other has helped them grow individually.
“Since me and James have come together, I could really say na I've changed for the better,” Nadine said.
James said almost the same thing about their relationship.
He noted, “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.”
The couple were also asked to describe love based on their movie's tagline on its poster: “Ang pag-ibig ay masarap, madali, forever, bulls*t.”
Nadine answered indirectly, “Ang nararamdaman po kasi ay iba't ibang klase.
“Meron po tayong iba't ibang klase ng love.
“There's love na romantic and meron pong love for families and friends.
“Like for me, sa akin, ang love po talaga sa akin ay maganda, kasi ang naidulot po sa akin ng love ay maganda po talaga.
“As in yung buhay ko po ay nagbago because of love.
“Yung love po na nare-receive ko sa family ko, yung love na nare-receive ko sa friends ko, and siyempre, yung love din po na nare-receive ko from James.”
She reiterated, “I can really say po na I've grown a lot and dahil po sa love na yun, I became a better person.”
James, on the other hand, connected his answer to his previous statement about his two-year relationship with Nadine.
“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.”
Aside from love, JaDine also stressed another factor that anchors their relationship.
James said, “Our love is very deep because we started out as friends, so we really have a strong foundation.”
Nadine seconded, “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.”
