Julia Barretto clarified that there is no ongoing romance between her and Mirabella leading man Enrique Gil. "Wala naman, we’re just really good friends. We're just close friends," she said during the pocket presscon of Mirabella at the ABS-CBN compound.
She relayed that they just really got close to each other because they happen to have the same personalities. "Kasi si Quen (Enrique), kasi alam mo siguro it’s just the personalities, we're very much alike, na nag-click lang ‘yung personalities namin, nag-jive, pero for me siguro naging close kami dahil parang pareho kaming tao lang, parang siya ‘yung boy version ni Julia Barretto."
The Mirabella actress further shared that Enrique is someone she really trusts. "I’m open to Quen because ‘yun ang pinaramdam niya sa akin na pwede akong maging open sa kanya. Pag-open ako sa kanya, ‘I’m not going to judge her or anything.’ ‘Yun ‘yung tipong tao si Quen," she said.
With the upcoming conclusion of their Mirabella soap, Julia stated that she is very satisfied of how the show turned out. "Ako very happy ako. I’m very satisfied kahit four months, pero nag-tape kami mag-one year na. I think I’m very happy kasi the story itself being able to play two roles for your launching project. That’s already a big thing kasi it’s a very challenging and it is my very first soap,” she stated.
She added that she feels fulfilled to have learned a lot of things about her craft from the show. "I’m satisfied kasi feeling ko natapos naman ng maayos. The ratings nag-improve by the end, kumapit na rin ‘yung mga tao so I can say na kahit hindi siya tumagal na ng one year or eight months, I’ve learned a lot from this show and there is nothing better than experience honestly, kasi para siyang preparation for the upcoming [projects].”
