Among Nadine Lustre’s notable characteristics is her strong personality and penchant for privacy especially when her loved ones’ welfare is concerned. But do not get her wrong. The Multimedia Princess is admittedly a soft-hearted gal especially towards her family. And not being too showy on social media is simply her means of protecting them. This way, her beloveds will be out of the public eye and will be saved from bashing. She said that she supports and defends them the best way she could. In a TWBA interview aired on March 2019, Nadine told Boy Abunda that she can remain silent for her own sake but she will not hesitate to fight back once her loved ones are being attacked.
Just last year, Nadine had nothing but sweet words for her boyfriend, now ex, James Reid. At that time, Nadine even got misty eyed as she expressed how James helped her recover from all the pain she went through and become a better version of herself. James used to be her everything. She felt a sting of sadness and almost shed tears as she imagined how her life would be different without him. But February this year, a few days before their supposed fourth anniversary as a couple, JaDine announced their shocking breakup.
Despite the split-up, it is safe to say that the ex-lovers were good for each other. Nadine was very vocal on how James influenced her into becoming wiser and more mature, a woman who no longer feels scared when problems arise. She has become a lot logical, as how she put it. As a couple, they didn’t like talking about the past or prying on each other’s whereabouts; at peace with their devotion towards one another.
Nadine also got to talk about her other love – Mother Earth. She is a nature-lover, influenced by growing up in a place surrounded with plants. Nadine started young in her conscious efforts to protect the environment. She believes that even her little ways, like picking up random litters in the street, will already make a huge impact. She also narrated a story about catching a man throwing a wrapper near the waters during her vacation in an island. Nadine, aware of the ocean’s current state and bothered by her conscience, asked the culprit to place the piece of garbage in the proper bin.
Nadine also revealed that she is obsessive-compulsive and has an inclination to cleanliness and order. Growing up without maids at home, she learned how to maintain the house at an early age. She loves tidying up and organizing her things everyday even if they still appear well arranged. Nadine also has a habit of keeping all doors locked at all times.
