Julia Barretto Laments Separation From Claudine BarrettoRising young actress Julia Barretto expressed regret that she is now not as close to her aunt Claudine Barretto as before.
“Especially with what's going on right now, I wasn't able to get advice from my titas, but I wish was able to,” Julia told ABS-CBN News at the sidelines of a recent event.
The young actress made the comment as she revealed that she wanted to get the advice of her two aunts Claudine and Gretchen regarding acting.
Claudine and Gretchen, who are central to the ongoing feud which has divided the Barretto clan, are both veteran actresses.
Julia has revealed that while she has been able to talk to her aunt Gretchen ever since the controversy involving the Barretto family began, she has not been able to talk to her aunt Claudine anymore.
“Of course my Tita Gretchen, yes, but Tita Claudine, no. But one day I know they're all going to be okay again, and I'll be able to ask questions about acting,” Julia said.
The actress, who recently starred in a Maalaala Mo Kaya episode, appears to still be hopeful that the family will reconcile soon. Her mother Marjorie Barretto took the side of her sister Gretchen in the feud.
“It's just that hindi pa sila nakaka-reconcile,” Julia said.
Julia also noted that the family must move on amid all the controversies, as her mom says. Marjorie recently had sensitive pictures of her leaked online.
Julia has revealed that her mother now smiles even though controversies hound the Barretto family.
According to Julia, her mother has shown her that “life goes on.”
“Kasi right now she also tells me that wala na rin, it's done. May mga bagong intriga narin naman na papasok, so it's not something to dwell on so much,” Julia said.
Marjorie Barretto and Dennis Padilla are the parents of Julia Barretto.
Meanwhile, the young actress also talked about her role in a Maalaala Mo Kaya episode. The young Barretto said that she wants to make a name for herself and not rely on her name being associated with her mother, father and aunts.
“I want to prove to them that I can also act like my titas and that I got into showbiz not just because of my last name, but because there's something that I can prove to them -- why I deserve to be in show business,” Julia said.
She also talked about a certain scene for the episode she found hard to make.
“I was so nervous to do it because it is a big scene and that's where the problem ends. So it's a very heavy scene and it had to look very real, so I had to go deep into my life and make hugot there,” she said.
She explained how she drew emotions for the scene saying “I think you go back to an important event in your life that was painful to you in the past. I think you go back to it and try to feel the pain again, so you can feel it again and malabas mo sa acting.”
