Following the news of Liza Soberano's withdrawal from the film 'Darna', Star Cinema opened the auditions for the film to the public.
KAMI learned that Julia Barretto openly shared her experience about 'auditioning' for Darna during her press conference for the movie 'Between Maybes' with Gerald Anderson.
"May mga nag-pupush sayo for Darna. Interested ka ba roon?" a reporter asked.
To which Julia jokingly replied, "Actually pumunta ako sa auditions ng Darna kanina, sa office. May mga nakapila nga eh, actually inunahan ko na eh. Pumasok na nga lang ako. Sabi ko 'minsan na nga lang 'to, bahala na'."
The reporter then asked how the audition went for Julia which prompted the actress to share that she wasn't taken seriously.
"Hindi nila ako sineryoso. Sabi ko nga 'maghuhubad na po ba ako?
"Kasi ready na po ako eh'. So umiikot ikot ako dun, gumaganun-ganun, tinawanan nila ako. Baka ayaw nila."
Julia's revelation about her 'audition' elicited reactions from netizens on social media as well.
"I love your sense of humour Julia! Ang ganda mo para sa Darna!"
"Hindi kasi sakto sayo yung role. Dapat medyo matigas na babae at maganda figure. Maganda ka naman pero hanggang dun lang."
"Beautiful naman si Juls but hindi fit sa kanya... Maganda siya sa love story lang eh."
"Haha, now I'm an instant converted fan of Julia B... Love your wit and humor on this subject. Kudos with your emerging showbiz career."
"Yung may pang black widow kasi sana ang appeal.. Hindi mahinhin o mukhang maarte ba."
"Julia Barretto is pretty. Kaso parang paos, pano pa kaya makaka sigaw ng Darna?"
