Showbiz A-lister James Reid has already showcased his talent in dancing, singing, and acting but it turns out he can do so much more. Enjoy these trivia bits about the heartthrob as he played Legit or Lie Challenge in a 2018 episode of Tonight with Boy Abunda.
James had a pretty normal life in Australia before moving in to the Philippines and joining Pinoy Big Brother Teens Clash of 2010. Back in his homeland, he used to engage in many different sports including highboard diving, golf, and Australian football. He also competed and earned medals in swimming and gymnastics for his school.
Had like taken a different turn, he would’ve pursued a career in culinary. He was already studying to be a chef in Australia before joining Philippine showbiz. So when asked if he’s a good cook, James raised the ‘legit’ board but said he doesn’t get too cook as much as before.
He was also asked to confirm rumors about JaDine’s rift with director Antoinette Jadaone who was at the helm of their first Kapamilya series On The Wings of Love. The conflict, according to hearsays, was related to shoot delays for James and Nadine Lustre’s project back in 2018. James raised his ‘lie’ board and clarified that it was just a slight misunderstanding. He said, “Nadine was sick and other things happened.”
Next, James was asked if he sees himself as the sexiest man in the Philippines. He answered ‘lie’ and gave the title to Tito Boy.
On thoughts about settling down, James admitted that he wanted a big family, at least six kids in the future. “I’ve come from a big family and it’s really fun growing up in a house with so many brothers and sisters,” he revealed.
