Indeed, multi-hyphenate celebrity Nadine Lustre has a lot on her plate.
Last March, Lustre starred in a romantic drama film titled ‘Ulan’ with Carlo Aquino.
Before wrapping the first half of the year, the 25-year-old actress had been focusing on the promotion of her new dance musical film titled ‘Indak’ with her friend and co-star Sam Concepcion.
‘Indak’ is directed by Paul Basinillo and is also produced by Viva Films.
In her interviews, Lustre shared that her schedule has been hectic, noting that the film required her to juggle extensive preparations and other commitments.
The ‘Indak’ star also said that she had to do dance rehearsals on top of the actual shooting which took a toll on her.
“I just really want to rest kasi medyo nararamdaman ko na ‘yung burnout eh… at ‘yung pagod. And there are times na… especially with Indak, sumasayaw kami at nagte-training kami; so medyo hectic talaga ‘yung schedule. Aside from the shoot, mayroon pang rehearsals… and marami [pang iba]. Talagang nakakapagod siya,” Lustre told the press when asked about her condition.
“I really requested talaga for a break, para makapag-recharge ako,” she also said.
This is not the first time the actress opened up about mental health issues. In 2017, she admitted that she has struggled with depression and anxiety.
Lustre also shared that she needed to take a break from work, prompting her to back out of the Philippine remake of hit Korean film ‘Miracle in Cell No. 7,’ which is set to be part of the Metro Manila Film Festival this December.
“I’m not rushing. I am happy with what I did for this year. I know na marami pa pong darating. And if it is not for me, hindi talaga para sa akin. Darating naman po ‘yung tamang project for me. So I’m not really rushing,” the actress said.
