James expressed happiness working with Daniel, breaks silence on comparison issue

  • James Reid expressed happiness working with Daniel Padilla on Sarah Geronimo’s concert
  • He understands being compared with another celebrity is a part of his job
  • James thanked fans for Never Not Love You‘s success

Actor James Reid expressed his happiness working with Daniel Padilla in the same show, as per an ABS-CBN News story.

He said Daniel is one of the biggest artists around.

To note, James and Daniel both performed on the 15th-anniversary concert of Sarah Geronimo last Saturday as special guests.

While the two top leading men of the Kapamilya station are constantly being compared by fans, James looks at it on the bright side.

He told ABS-CBN that he’s aware of the issue and understands that being compared with another celebrity is part of his job.

“I don’t really notice. I know Daniel is a busy guy just like me and if we were normal people, it would probably be different.

“But people can’t help but compare. That’s fine. It’s part of the job.”

James’ latest movie Never Not Love You with girlfriend Nadine Lustre is doing well in terms of box office revenue; that is why James thanked the fans for the support.

He said he was overwhelmed. He was initially nervous over it because it was heavily character-based, not storyline-based which put pressure on him and Nadine.

“But thank you for watching. I hope you didn’t hurt so much. I know it’s really painful to watch. I watched it myself and it brought me to tears. But thank you for the support. I’ve heard of so many good reviews.”
