MANILA – Nadine Lustre would not mind if her boyfriend, James Reid, would have a kissing scene with Sarah Geronimo in the upcoming movie “Miss Granny.”
Lustre’s statement was a reaction to the tease of director Joyce Bernal that Geronimo might have an onscreen smooch in the Filipino film adaptation of the Korean movie.
“Miss Granny” is Reid’s first project without Lustre.
“Bakit ako ['yung magre-react]? (laughs). Okay na ‘yun. If it’s for work, okay lang naman. And si Ate Sarah naman so walang ibig sabihin so I’m okay with that,” she told ABS-CBN News' Jeff Fernando.
Although she is not part of the project, Lustre said she is very happy for her boyfriend and they want nothing but the best for each other’s career.
“Ako po very excited ako sa mga projects niya and siya din excited para sa akin. We grow together pero at the same time, nag-grow din kami kahit hindi kami magkasama,” she said.
In the original South Korean movie, a woman in her 70s finds herself in the body of her 20-year-old self (played by Shim Eun-Kyun).
Reid and Geronimo have already started filming for the movie.
