James Reid and Nadine Lustre“As of now, parang wala pa talagang time for anything, at kung maging Darna ako, I really need time to train.” – she said. 

It was a star-studded launch, as Viva International Food and Restaurant Incorporation, a sister company of Viva Films, opened a new branch of The Paper Moon (Japanese Hybrid Cake store), at SM Megamall. And to celebrate the opening, Viva’s formidable love team Jadine (James Reid and Nadine Lustre), was there to do the ribbon cutting ceremony.

In an interview with, the lead stars of  On the Wings of Love were asked about the updates on their upcoming movie entry for this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival. According to James, “It was fun. It’s my first time to do a movie for MMFF, and doing the film with Coco Martin and Vice Ganda was so amazing.” While Nadine said, “Masaya, especially it is my first time sa lahat, like first ko makasama sila kuya Coco at si Vice. Talagang pure joke time.”

JadineWe also asked Nadine if she would be willing to accept the role of Darna. She replied  with a laugh, “Sabi ko hindi sa ngayon, kasi bigyan nila muna ako ng time to shape up at mag gym. I need time to prepare.  Bahala na, I still don’t know.”

As of now, Nadine claimed that there’s no offer yet to wear that two-piece red and gold costume.  “Wala pa po ang offer, pero kung meron, why not. Darna yun e, and it’s a privilege kung maging Darna ka. But as of now, I want to focus first  with OTWOL (On The Wings of Love), tapos may MMFF movie.

James was asked about his thoughts on Nadine as Darna. James mused, “She’s the Darna and I am the Captain Barbel! Of course she has the body for the role and I know she can do it.”




Meanwhile Nadine was reminded about her  recent emotional instagram post.  Nadine explained, “It’s a phase na lahat tayo nagdadaan dyan,I guess. Sabi ng mga friends ko ,wala yan. Hindi yan seryoso. Birthday blues lang iyan kasi mag 22 years old na ako. It’s not about love life, it’s not about my career, it’s about my feelings lang. But I’m okay right now and I am happy!”

James and Nadine were asked how to wrap up the year 2015?

“Definitely, sobrang happy and grateful sa sobrang daming blessings,” she shared. “And from the Instagram posts, it’s not really about my career, wala naman po akong problem regarding this. I am really, really happy sa mga dumating sa akin.”

James said, “I feel so blessed and I feel that this is my longest year of my life. I feel like I’m five years older. I’m doing this because I love this (industry) and I’m just enjoying everything.”

And who will they support in next year’s presidential election? The screen partners were still undecided.
