1 Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia just can't seem to stop with the kilig ~*feels*~! In an interview on April 18, the two shared some sweet details about their relationship—although they continue to stress it's all platonic. Despite being just friends, the two had no problems sharing the qualities they like about each other. "Ang maganda kasi sa amin, naba-balance namin 'yung isa't isa. Gusto ko 'yung pagiging sweet niya sa akin and maalaga din," Joshua shared. "Ang dami namang good qualities ni Josh but my most favorite is 'yung pagiging maalaga niya. Every time I am with him, I feel safe lang because I know na I'm taken care of," Julia added.
As for the almost-date the two had during Coldplay's concert in Manila—well, it was actually Julia who made the first move. "I called him. I said I wanted to be with him in the concert so he bought a ticket. Mga three hours before siya naghanap. Hindi naman siya nag-regret. It was his first concert," the actress spilled. Aaaw! <3 (ABS-CBN)
