We cannot deny the fact that Nadine Lustre is one of the stars that shines the brightest nowadays. She is dubbed as the Multimedia Princess by the local press and was recently crowned as FHM's Sexiest Woman in the Philippines in 2017. Currently, she appears in ABS-CBN's flagship noontime variety show "It's Showtime" as the newest regular host along with her reel-to-real-life partner James Reid.
She started her career at the tender age of 9 as a host on RPN's "Storyland" in 2002. In 2005, she became one of the featured hosts on Disney Channel Asia. She then returned to the local showbiz scene when she became a part of the all-female group “Popgirls” in 2009 to 2010.
She also landed a role in various films such as the 2010 remake of "Petrang Kabayo" and "Who's That Girl" in 2011. She then starred in a couple of drama series in 2011 on TV5's "P.S. I Love you" and on "The Fighting Chefs" in 2013.
She had a career breakthrough when she bagged the lead role of Eya in "Diary ng Panget: The Movie" in 2014. That was the start of her loveteam pairing with James Reid – dubbed by their fans as “JaDine” -who eventually became her consistent loveteam partner. They eventually worked in another movie, "Talk Back and You're Dead," in the same year. A year after that, "Para Sa Hopeless Romantic" followed.
The rumors that Nadine would sign with ABS-CBN circulated when she and James appeared in an "MMK: Stufftoy" episode in 2015. Soon after, they officially became Kapamilya stars and starred in their first teleserye in ABS-CBN, the hugely popular "On The Wings of Love (OTWOL)" which aired from 2015 to 2016. OTWOL was a huge success and was largely responsible for the JaDine loveteam’s popularity.
Nadine then starred alongside Vice Ganda in 2016's "Beauty and the Bestie", and then another movie with James Reid entitled "This Time."
The huge success of OTWOL was followed by another teleserye, "Till I Met You," in 2016 to 2017. After the show, Nadine Lustre and James Reid did a series of mall tours and world tours to delight their fans. Then, they were introduced as the newest hosts of ABS-CBN’s "It's Showtime."
