With the unexpected pairing of Julia Barretto and Gerald Anderson in the movie Between Maybes, out today, Julia was asked about other actors that she would be willing to work with as her leading men. On Tonight With Boy Abunda, Julia said yes to possibly working with James Reid. “Baka interesting ang dynamic.” Daniel Padilla also got a yes from her. “I think it’s going to be really refreshing.” She said they could play bad girl-good boy or vice versa.
The actress is also willing to co-star with Ian Veneracion (“I've always wanted to do a film about an older man and a younger woman”), Jericho Rosales (one of her Tita Claudine Barretto’s favorite leading men), and Marco Gumabao (“we’re such good friends and we’ll have a comfortable and easy time being onscreen partners”).
On the comedic side, Julia is excited about teaming up with Empoy Marquez and Vice Ganda. “Pero leading lady ko si Vice,” Julia quipped. “Interesting ang mag-comedy para malabas ang Dennis Padilla (her dad) side ko.”
As for Hollywood actors, it’s a yes to Tom Holland, but ultimately a no to Noah Centineo. “Very charming, sparkling eyes, pa-fall—tapos sasaktan ka sa huli. Ayaw ko ng ganoon, next, no na lang,” Julia said, laughing.
Will her boyfriend, Joshua Garcia, get jealous of her next leading man? “Yes, kasi lahat pinagseselosan.” Julia said, “Paliwanag pero at some point ‘wag i-tolerate or else itutuloy at itutuloy. Kailangan pa-realize sa kanya na hindi lahat ng bagay, pinagseselosan.”
