KAMI learned about this story from Star Cinema/ABS CBN
At the bloggers conference last November 30, Direk Cathy who directed Julia's latest movie 'Unexpectedly yours' addressed the common misconceptions about the young actress.
"I have [never] worked with Julia. Ang tanging alam ko she's a Barretto and she has the makings of a Barretto," she started.
"At dahil love ko si Claudine (Julia’s aunt) at nakatrabaho ko na din ang nanay (Marjorie) niya, I suppose pareho lang sila ng ugali. And true enough!”
"Mukha silang maldita! Alam mo naman ang mga Barretto, mga mukhang maldita but they're not. Maldita ang pagmumukha, wala na silang magagawa, ganoon na 'yun eh, but they're pleasant to work with." she said.
Direk Cathy also said that she really liked Julia for being 'transparent', not 'plastic' or fake.
She also added ”Hindi siya pa-goody goody na ‘everything is okay’ tapos pag talikod mo kung ano ano ang sinasabi. That's what I like about her. If she doesn't like [something], she doesn't like it [and] you'll see it.”
This is the first time that Direk Cathy handled Julia as one of the actress for her movie.
'Unexpectedly Yours' starring Sharon Cuneta, Robin Padilla, Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto still showing in Cinemas Nationwide.
