Nadine says she learns from heady days of fame, fortune

Though still very much in demand, award-winning actress Nadine Lustre said money and popularity – especially at the peak of her love team with James Reid – got to her head back then.

“Yes, (fame got to my head) of course, especially money. Parang nung time kasi na sobrang booming ‘yung love team, parang doon ko na-feel na hindi nauubos ‘yung pera. So, I was spending on so much,” she said while appearing as guest in Bea Alonzo’s vlog.

Now the 29-year-old star of  “Deleter” feels she’s ready to deal with those fleeting things as she started investing in business and focusing on the artistic aspect of show business.

“Nakikita ko rin kasi kung paano nalo-look down yung mga creatives sa industry,” she added.

Lustre also revealed that she’s aware of people trying to pit them against other love teams like that of Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, and Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano.

She said: “I didn’t like that there was a competing aspect to it. Parang sa akin back then, hindi ko siya nage-gets bakit may ganoon. So, I was more of just doing what I have to do. Nafi-feel ko lang talaga na pinagko-compete kami ng mga tao pero hindi ko siya inisip.”

“I am competitive pero ayaw ko (ng competition among us). Parang I was really just doing my own thing. Hindi ko din gets bakit kailangan may competition. Even until now, nakikita ko siya sa ibang love teams,” she added.

Lustre and Reid shot to stardom with “‘Diary ng Panget”  in 2014. Their hits include “Talk Back and You’re Dead” in 2015, “Para sa Hopeless Romantic” in 2015, and “This Time” in 2016.

Last December she won  the Best Actress award during the Metro Manila Film Festival for the film “Deleter.”
