“Ako, ayaw ko talaga. Ayaw ko na sila 'yung next.”
This was Claudine Barretto’s response when asked by ABS-CBN News at the 2017 Star Magic Ball if she wants her niece Julia Barretto, and actor Joshua Garcia, to follow in the footsteps of her tandem with the late actor Rico Yan.
A certain photo of Joshua and Julia made headlines online recently and many fans commented that they have similarities to Claudine and Rico’s team-up.
Claudine explained that she wants JoshLia to surpass what her tandem with Rico had achieved before.
“Bilang pamangkin ko, I want na higitan pa niya 'yun sana. Given the right projects lang, she’s doing very well. Magaling siyang umarte. Naniniwala ako na kaya niya. Kaya nila,” Claudine stated.
