In 2019, Julia Barretto made headlines for her love life after breaking up with her former love team partner Joshua Garcia and getting caught in the highly publicized split of Gerald Anderson and Bea Alonzo. But 2020 is different for the Kapamilya actress because it seems she's found a new love and, this time around, she'll be keeping it as low-key as possible.
Sam went right in with le big question: "How's your heart?"
Julia was game to answer, and replied in jest, "I think the question there is whether I'm single or not. Am I correct? I mean, just get to the point. Just go straight to the point!"
After a few pauses, she said, "My heart is fine right now actually—thankfully. It's happy right now, but as to whether I'm single or not—I think I'm not gonna answer that for now. I think I wanna keep people wondering. But, you know, honestly, with everything that's going on, that's really the last thing they should be concerned about. But let's keep them wondering first."
Gino then asked, "But at least your heart is happy?"
"It is. It's very happy. Thank you for asking," Julia replied.
Julia was also asked to list down two qualities that she finds super attractive in a guy. Her answers? A good conversationalist and a gentleman!
"A good conversationalist. I really love having a conversation. I really love talking and I'm so passionate about the things I talk about. The other one is really just being a gentleman. Just somebody who's there for you. Someone who understands you. Someone who respects you."
After all that she's been through over the years, Julia shared the biggest lesson she's learned so far and the one thing she's never going to do again—and it's keeping her private life (yup, including her romantic relationships) as private as possible.
"When it comes to [your] love life, if it's something you really wanna last or work out, protect it as much as you can and don't share too much about it. Don't share so much about a relationship that's supposed to be just between two people. I think the less people know about something, the less they could have an opinion about it. So, now I want things to work out, I want things to last, and I'm gonna protect it with all that I have. So, I'm gonna keep a lot of things to myself from now on when it comes to that aspect in my life."
Reports of Julia's ~new love~ first surfaced in March when she posted about celebrating her 23rd birthday with her "family and a loved one."
Love and light, Julia!
