On Tonight With Boy Abunda, James Reid was asked about potentially teaming up with today’s top leading ladies. The actor-musician said yes to Liza Soberano, Kathryn Bernardo, Janella Salvador (“if we could work together, hopefully with some music”), and Yassi Pressman (“a friend of mine since Diary Ng Panget”).
Asked about potentially being paired with Julia Barretto, James said no. “There’s too much noise when it comes to fans and stuff. I have no problem with her. There’s just too much noise.” Host Boy Abunda asked, “Para walang gulo?” James said, “Yeah. Let’s make life easy.”
As for his girlfriend Nadine Lustre’s potential leading men, James said yes to Daniel Padilla, Joshua Garcia (“I can see the project happening”), Arjo Atayde (“an amazing actor”), and Coco Martin (“if it will be an action project because Nadine has always wanted to do action”). What about Gerald Anderson? James said he was about to say no, “but that smile is so...” Referring to Gerald’s photo that was shown to him, James quipped, “It’s hard to say no when he’s smiling like that.”
James and Nadine will be celebrating their fourth anniversary in February. In the interview, he said jealousy is not an issue in their relationship. “It’s good to be in a relationship where you feel safe and solid.” How does he deal with people flirting with him? “In any relationship, I don’t give [my girlfriend] any reason to feel jealous or insecure.” What about those who want to spend the night with him? James laughed and said, “No, they don’t even get close.”
James also talked about being hesitant to have kids because of “the state of the world right now.” He said, “I would love to have kids, but I don’t know if I can have them. I don’t know if I want to bring another life into the world the way that it is now.”
