James Reid Shrugs Constant Comparison To Daniel PadillaThe competition between James Reid and Daniel Padilla are heating up when YES! magazine put the two stars on their cover for November 2014.
This was based on the comments on James' Instagram account when he posted the copy of the cover.
James, however, shrugged these comments and said he is honored to be with Daniel on the cover. He knows that the fans are going crazy right now.
The actor and former "Pinoy Big Brother" big winner said he and Daniel did not appear together for the shoot. They did it separately.
He's looking forward to working with Daniel in the future. He is sure he will have that chance because they're with the same network already.
Even inside the ABS-CBN compound, he and loveteam partner Nadine Lustre have never seen Daniel and Kathryn Bernardo. The two loveteams are being pitted against each other.
Though their fans think there is a rivalry between them, James believes there should be no tension between them. He is also sure they would get along because there's no reason for them not to.
He does not want to change himself just because he is being compared to others. He is trying to be himself and it's working out for him.
In fact, James is also welcoming of the new tandem of Inigo Pascual and Julia Barretto for "Para Sa Hopeless Romantic." He and Inigo worked together for "Relaks, It's Just Pag-Ibig," which will be showing on November 12.
James said he is excited to work with him again. He added that he is excited to see Inigo's movie because he has a kissing scene there with Ericka Villongco, James' former girlfriend.
He and Ericka are still together that time.
Meanwhile, James maintained that he and Nadine are still friends despite rumors that they are a couple already. They recently worked together in the Kapamilya weekly series "Wansapanataym," which ended on October 26.
James said they are close friends, and he considers Nadine his "best female friend." He admitted, though, that they are sweet even off-cam. It's only natural with them, he added.
