In another interview, Janine expressed her trust in ABS-CBN when it comes to choosing what’s best for her.

“But I’ve always been a movie fan so lahat ng movies pinapanood ko and gusto ko. I really look up to mga actresses who were able to balance indie and mainstream like Lovi (Poe) or Iza (Calzado). ‘Yun din sana ‘yung goal ko for myself before pa, na also may fashion side like Anne (Curtis). Parang fashion darling, parang all around.”
