Turning to Julia, Joshua remarked, "Baba, I'm sorry if nagkaroon ng mistake but I promise to be a better man for you, for us."
Joshua was also asked if he does love Julia and replied "yes." Asked if they are already in a relationship, Joshua coyly said, "Hindi ko pa masabi tita (Kris), sa tamang panahon."
During the press conference, the "I Love You Hater" stars were also asked if who was the last person they hated but still loved at the same time. Julia confessed that it was Joshua.
"Last person na hinate ko at ni-love ko at the same time kasi siyempre there are some decisions na the person you love will make, or made, or will make, but at the end of the day, nangunguna talaga 'yung love mo for the person. You may hate what they're doing, but it can never overcome the love that you have for the person," Julia said.
The two stars had a strain on their relationship when Joshua’s private message to a model went viral. They also alarmed JoshLia fans when they unfollowed each other on Instagram last March.
Before the filming of their movie, Kris also gave Joshua love advice.
"Can you please behave? Sa ganda ba naman nito (referring to Julia)? But sometimes kasi minsan ang boys di naa-appreciate ang ganito kaganda. Minsan mag-try muna ng ano, not so, and doon mo na aappreciate ngayon yung halos mawala, huwag mo ng hintayin mawala."
