The sexy pictorial was a spur-of-the-moment undertaking, according to Lustre, recalling that it happened just after an endorsement shoot wrapped.

Referring to photographer Dookie Ducay and makeup artist Jelly Eugenio, Lustre said: “Sabi nila, ‘Mag-fun shoot naman tayo saglit lang para may ma-post naman kami sa birthday mo.’”

Lustre was speaking on the sidelines of the Sunday gathering of Kapamilya stars for the ABS-CBN Christmas station ID.

She was also asked for her reaction to the memes that her photo shoot generated, with some editing her crouched pose to make her look like a sprint race participant or a wrestling referee, among others.

“Ang saya, ako kasi mahilig po ako sa mga ganong mga memes, ‘yung mga ini-edit lalo na sa Facebook ang dami kasing gano’n,” she was quoted as saying by PUSH.

“Wala, ang saya lang niya. Nakakatuwa siya, hindi ako na-offend in any way. Pinakita ko [kay James], natawa din siya,” she added, referring to her boyfriend, actor James Reid.
