They may be celebrities, but repeating the same underwear twice is something they are both familiar with. JC used to play basketball as a kid and would often become drenched in sweat. Too shy to change his underwear in school, he would go home still wearing them. Nathalie’s story was more recent. On a trip to Zambales, she was forced to wash some of them because she did not pack enough. “Naghanap ako ng detergent tapos sinampay ko ‘yung panty ko. Bahala sila kung sino makakita,” she revealed.
When it comes to handling love teams, however, the two have different stories. Nathalie has never fallen in love with a co-star. In fact, she prefers dating someone outside of showbiz. Meanwhile, JC admitted that he constantly fell in love with his co-stars, “I can’t deny.” In his defense, this was only during the start of his career when he was 17 years old. By the time he turned 25, he had matured and finally understood the difference between work and personal.
As for how they react to their own scenes, the Barbara Reimagined stars have experienced crying over their own performances, although for different reasons. Back in 2016, JC played the father in the Maalaala Mo Kaya episode “Courageous Caitie”. To this day, watching it never fails to make him shed a tear or two. On the other hand, Nathalie has only ever cried at her work because he was not just happy at what she was doing.
