Daniel Padilla opened up about the video of James Reid almost carrying him to the dance floor, which went viral last month, on Tonight With Boy Abunda. He said he found it nice to have that candid moment with James, whom he’s constantly pitted against since they’re two of today’s top leading men.
“Natuwa rin ako kasi wow, ito ang mga boundaries na nakikita ng mga tao. Na parang hindi na puwedeng maging magkaibigan o ginagawan ng issue. Pinagaaway nila kami o nagaaway sila para sa amin. Ang ganda lang makita dahil genuine din [si James].”
It didn’t stop with that moment at the ASAP In Rome after-party. “After that, ang tagal naming magkasama doon. Ang galing kasi magkaiba ang mundo namin ni James [pero] it’s very nice, genuine, at walang pataasan.” He added, “Hindi pa kami magkakilala ng husto pero nakikita ko kay James na mabuti siyang tao.”
Daniel recalled that at one Star Magic Ball where he performed, James approached him and complimented him on his singing. Music is one of their shared interests—both have released several albums and singles, and James is the CEO of record label Careless Music Manila.
