021315-james_mainphoto.jpgAfter the success of his movies Diary ng Panget and Talk Back and You’re Dead last year, James Reid admits his career has been on a roll. Along with his love team partner Nadine Lustre, they have gone on to do Wansapanataym and more recently, Maalaala Mo Kaya. The two have also just been announced to star in a new series On the Wings of Love under Dreamscape Entertainment in ABS-CBN later this year. 
“The story is unique. It’s really great and really fun. It’s very light and I guess we’ll do our best. That’s all we can do. It’s very light and fun,” he says.
Along with their rising popularity comes with it intrigues that continue to plague their onscreen partnership. James has recently been rumored to be seen with different non-showbiz girls which he vehemently denies. 
“First of all they are just rumors and we try not to let it get to us. Sometimes it does but I guess we just do our best. Well first of all I’m not going out with anyone. I’m not dating anyone. It’s not true. I’m not dating anyone. I’m not seeing anyone or anything like that. Nadine is my closest friend that’s a girl,” he admits during the On the Wings of Love presscon held today, February 13.
Last week, the Fil-Australian hunk stirred further controversy when he posted a message on his social media account that says, “People who read tabloids deserve to be lied to.” This angered the local tabloid press which has led him to feel guilty even after he deleted the message online. 
”First of all, I want to apologize kung may mga na-offend sa pinost ko. Na-realize ko na mali yung ginawa ko kaya ko tinanggal. But at that time ang daming rumors na kumakalat. Like videos and things like that. I was just really upset. My friends, my family, my fans were asking if it was true and the worst part is I couldn’t defend myself. I was just really upset. I was really hurt and the way I reacted was wrong. I know that. But I really do appreciate everything the press does for me. It was just a bad choice of words. And I made a mistake. It won’t happen again.Sometimes I forget my position. But it was never my intention to offend the good people of the press. It was more targeted at certain people so I guess it was just a bad choice of words. I’m sorry for that,” he says.
The 21-year-old actor says he feels lucky that Nadine is there for him even though their relationship is just platonic for now. 
“Well we’re together every day and she helps me a lot especially in Tagalog. Everything we do, we do it together so I guess its emotional support, everything. 
When asked what the real deal is between them off-cam, James says he considers Nadine his closest female friend. “Friends lang kami. We’re just friends, partners. We have plans for Valentine’s day actually,” he adds.  
The two have recently been seen attending concerts together which leads people to think they are dating in real life. 
James clarifies it with a simple explanation, “Actually I didn’t know who the band 1975 was. I had tickets so I asked her to go. I knew she likes them. I guess you could call it a friendly date. There were other artists there. But every day we have schedules together.”
