Nadine Lustre's photo buying a lechon sauce in August of 2021 gave birth to several memes, from people copying her look to editing themselves in the photo. And today, we finally got the story behind it from Nadine Lustre herself!
During her guesting for "We Rise Together" on Monday, April 4, the "Wait For Me" singer shared what really happened that day before the photo was taken.
According to the actress, they were very tired from a surfing trip that day and were just really hungry when they came home.
"'Yung time na 'yun, sobrang gutom na 'ko, sobrang pagod, nag-surf kami, tapos bumiyahe pa kami. Alam mo 'yung gutom na gutom ka, tapos gusto mong kumain, eh 'yung chicken na nabili mo walang sarsa. So sabi ko bili muna ako sa tindahan," she recalled.
Nadine also said she was actually aware that someone was taking a photo of her while buying, but decided to just shrug it off. "Nakita ko na pinipicturan ako pero sabi ko, 'Bahala na, okay na 'yan.'"
Being a fan of memes, the "Beauty and the Bestie” star said she doesn’t mind seeing stolen shot of hers. "I personally love memes, eh. Mas natuwa pa nga ako noong lumabas 'yung photo," she said.
The netizen who took the photo of Nadine said in an interview with Philippine Star last August that she took a photo of the actress since she was stunned by her bare-faced beauty.
Nadine also reacted to her viral photo few days after it went viral, tweeting, "Para 'di na kayo mag-isip… lechon manok 'yung ulam."
Currently, Nadine is on a vacation in France with her beau Chrisophe Bariou.
