James Reid shrugs off his "rivalry" with fellow Kapamilya actor Daniel Padilla, and says it's just part of what they do as celebrities.
In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN News, James said of the rivalry, "I don't really notice. I know Daniel is a busy guy just like me and if we were normal people, it would probably be different. But people can't help but compare. That's fine. It's part of the job."
James, 24, catapulted to fame after taking the lead role in the cult film Ang Diary ng Panget: The Movie (2014). Daniel, 22, first appeared on television through the youth-oriented drama series Gimik (2010).
The two male stars are also set to perform at Sarah Geronimo's 15th anniversary concert tonight, April 14, at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
"I'm happy to be performing on the same show as him," James shared. "He's one of the biggest artists around."
Good luck in your performances, guys!
