Julia Barretto Wants Family Members To Reconcile Amid Horrible FuedJulia Barretto may have recently said that she does not think about the horrible feud her family is involved in but she has now also revealed that she wants members of her family to reconcile.
“Gusto ko sila muna magka-ayos-ayos. I have the fondest memories of them,” the young Barretto, currently being built as the next big teen star, told InterAksyon in an interview.
“Like my Tita Clau, we used to be with her almost every day. Doing the groceries, nasa house niya lang, kain, always bonding together. And I know, hindi naman nawala ‘yun. Kahit na gaano katagal pa kami hindi muna magkita-kita, in the end, I know in my heart, close pa rin kami,” she added.
Not that this controversy gets the actress down. In fact, it seems she is quite accustomed to controversies.
“I grew up with it. But that didn’t make me hate the world my mom and my dad, my aunts moved in. I am aware naman of what can happen. Matagal ko na ito hinihintay. At kahit na may bagyong dumaan sa pamilya namin, hindi naman nila ipinaramdam ‘yun sa amin,” she said in another part of the interview.
She also revealed how she gets through issues like this.
“My Tita Gretchen advised me to just keep on praying lang when she learned na decided na ako to be in showbiz. To keep praying din na maging mataas ang ratings ng show. From my Tita Clau naman, wala naman akong nakukuhang advice from her,” she said.
“The good pieces of advice I get are all from my mom. Hindi ko pa nakakausap my dad but I know that he will be happy once I break the news to him about the project,” she added.
The young Barretto, praised for her beauty by many, also spoke about her idols in acting. So did she choose her tita Gretchen above her tita Claudine or vise versa? No, the young actress says she likes both her titas.
“When it comes naman sa idol sa acting, super fan naman nila akong dalawa. Magkaiba silang style sa pag-arte. My Tita Gretchen is more on the kontrabida side. My Tita Claudine naman is always the good girl sa mga drama niya,” she said.
Nonetheless, she said she will not exactly copy any of her titas.
“Hindi ko sila gagayahin. Gusto ko rin naman na mag-emerge ako with my own style in acting. Na magkaroon ako ng sariling acting technique ko. Ayoko ng nanggagaya, eh,” she said.
Meanwhile, Julia said that she is ready for stardom.
“Matagal ko’ng ipinag-pray that this day would come. I knew in my heart, I will be able to fulfill this dahil bata pa lang ako, hilig ko na talaga umarte dahil nakikita ko na ‘yun in my aunts who since then were my idols na,” she said.
Julia is set to star in the remake of Confradia by ABS-CBN.
She said in the interview that she has been exposed to acting since she was a kid because she grew up in a showbiz family.
“I tried acting when I was a kid pa. I have been away din for a while. I had to focus din naman kasi on my studies,” she said.
“Kaya when my mom told me the news na I am given a teleserye and ako ‘yung bida in the remake ng ‘Cofradia’ on TV, sobrang iyak ko talaga. It could have been anyone. But to be given this opportunity is an answered prayer talaga,” she added.
So how does Julia prepare for what could be her big break? The young actress seems to have done her homework when it comes to Confradia.
“I know po na there were two versions ng movie. The first one starred Ms. Gloria Romero and ‘yung sumunod naman was Ms, Gina Alajar. And I know din na heavy drama ang movie,” she said.
She also talked about acting workshops she is excited to take part in.
“Kaya now, I’m excited na to undergo several workshops. Being a very happy person, hindi ko pa alam talaga kung paano and saan ako huhugot ng emotions ko once the cameras start rolling,” she said.
Apart from acting, Julia also wants to make her parents proud by finishing her high school studies.
“Two years na lang kaya I wanna make my parents proud,” she said.
