Julia Montes shares how she plans on keeping fit


As part of the Kapamilya Gold Teleserye tour, Julia Montes said she plans on keeping fit by watching what she eats. “Siguro minsan may time na hangga’t kaya pang i-limit yung food intake, gagawin ko. Kasi minsan may times talaga na kulang ako sa control kaya minsan may day na controlled talaga. Pag may time, minsan I run or simpleng cardio, ganun. Minsan sa gym pero minsan sa bahay lang,” she shared.

The 16-year-old actress said sometimes dieting is hard for her because of her fondness for junk food. “I’m into chips. Kasi hindi ako mahilig sa masyadong chocolates. Minsan nagke-candies din ako,” she added.

The Fil-German beauty also admitted that she is currently fascinated with collecting all things that are in her favorite color at the moment. “Siguro mas lalo akong naging addict sa color red talaga. Kapag nag-sha-shopping talaga ako, unang nakaka-attract talaga sa akin ang color red. Ngayon mas dumadami na yung gamit ko na red. Yung pang-tapings ko ngayon lahat halos red na (laughs),” she admitted.

With regards to her Growing Up co-star Diego Loyzaga, Julia said they now have better rapport because of their time together doing Mara Clara. “Okay naman masaya kasi ang nagiging dating naging teacher ako sa Tagalog kasi medyo mahina pa siya sa Tagalog. Masaya naman kasi mas nakilala ko siya ngayon compared sa Mara Clara,” she said.

Julia said she and Diego oftentimes share snacks during breaks, which helps them bond more as co-stars. “Para sa akin, kasama siya sa mga okay na ka-love team na gentleman, maalaga. Off-cam, basta ako ang kasama, ibig sabihin lagi kaming kumakain, yun lang yun (laughs). Minsan nagpapahealthy ako sa fruits. Pero madalas junk foods (laughs),” she admitted.

For her next project, Julia has no particular genre in mind but she just wants every new role to be an acting challenge for her. “Every project na binibigay naman sa akin challenging lagi so excited lang ako sa mga ibibigay nila sa akin kasi alam kong bago ulit yun, hindi tulad nung dati ko ng na-portray, so yun,” she said.

The Growing Up star also shared a short message for her supportive and loyal fans who have watched her career blossom since her Mara Clara days. “Sa mga sumusuporta sa akin, mapa-Clara man or mapa-Julia, maraming maraming salamat, especially Julia Angels, every mall show, saan man ako maaring mapunta, pumupunta kayo, maraming maraming salamat!” she said.
