If there is one celebrity who famous cosplayer and host Myrtle Sarrosa considers to be her sister, it would be actress Nadine Lustre.
“Kung magkakaroon man ako ng sister sa showbiz, it would be my one and only best friend talaga na si Nadine,” Sarrosa told DZMM’s Ahwel Paz in an interview Friday. “Kasi I’ve known Nadine for at least seven years na ngayon.”
According to Sarrosa, she became friends with Lustre in high school because of their shared love for dressing up as popular fictional characters. “Hindi pa kami sikat, hindi pa kami artista ay magkakilala na kami.”
“Tapos ngayon na naging artista na kami –different paths pero nagtugma, nagtagpo kami ulit and we’re still friends. So kung may sister man sa akin here, it would really be her. Natutuwa talaga kasi sometimes you would expect change through the years pero nothing has changed, we’re still friends,” she said.
Sarrosa rose to fame after winning the fourth teen edition of “Pinoy Big Brother” back in 2012, while Lustre rose to stardom with her onscreen chemistry with boyfriend James Reid.
For Lustre’s birthday last October, Sarrosa shared a heartwarming message for her friend on Instagram. She praised the “On the Wings of Love” star for remaining humble despite her success.
“I’m really proud of you for all your achievements,” Sarrosa told Lustre. “Whenever people ask me about you, I would always tell them that you’re the most humble person I know.”
“Not a lot of people know how truly amazing you are but if they only knew that you’re the kind of daughter who would sacrifice so much because you live and breathe for your family, I’m sure even more people would admire you.
“If only they knew that you’re the kind of friend that would call me despite your busy schedule because you know I’m heart broken, I’m sure they’d want to be your friend too.
“If only they knew that you’re the kind of person who smiles no matter what situation it is, I’m sure they’d love to be around you. If only they knew the things I know about you, I’m sure they’d love you as much as I love you,” Sarrosa wrote.
