Dennis Padilla Says Daughter Julia Barretto Can Be The Next Claudine BarrettoDennis Padilla believes his daughter Julia Barretto will go far in her acting career.
Julia was recently launched as one of the faces of Star Magic 2013.
“Noon pa naman, naniniwala na ako diyan."
He said his daughter has depth when it comes to acting. “At sigurado akong sisikat siya, ang galing, e! May brilyo, at saka maganda, e, iba ang lahi namin, e."
Julia came from two showbiz families--the Barrettos and the Padillas. Padilla said Julia got the best of both worlds since she has the talent for drama from the Barretto side and comedy from the Padilla side.
“So pag pinag-drama mo si Julia, siguradong may ibubuga. Pag pinag-comedy, may ibubuga rin yun. And I’m sure, maaaring siya ang susunod na Claudine Barretto ng ABS-CBN or higit pa.”
This statement was made amid rumors that Claudine was not happy about her niece's entrance to her former network. Marjorie and Gretchen are apparently at odds with their youngest sister.
Padilla shared how proud he is of Julia.
“And sabi ko sa kanya, pagbutihin niya ang career niya and noon pa sinasabi ko sa kanya na maging friendly ka sa mga fans, yung mga ganun ba?"
He said Julia is very humble despite her family's fame.
When it comes to Julia's suitor, Padilla said he doesn't allow her to get courted yet.
Once she turns 18 or 19, the comedian said he might entertain suitors for is daughter already.
“So yung mga crush-crush, okay lang ‘yan."
“And magaling naman kumontrol si Mr. M [Johnny Manahan] at ayaw mo namang ma-bad shot kay Mr. M, di ba?"
