A new Julia shines in ‘VKJ’
Julia Barretto has been stereotyped as the "Englishera," "mataray" rich girl.

But is that really the true Julia? No, it definitely isn’t.

Her character Kath in the upcoming film “Vince and Kath and James” is boyish and simple, two things that define Julia in real life. As she breaks out of these perceptions and embraces a new image, Julia is also slowly letting people see who she is beyond the camera.

“Ngayon mas nag-let loose na ako, 'yung fears ko nabawasan na, 'yung walls ko slowly bumababa na and mas nago-open up na ako sa tao kung ano talaga ako,” she said during the film's Grand Media Conference today, December 6.

She even shared that while she’s built a lot of walls in the past, she’s learned to accept and embrace them as a part of her life.

“At some point para makapasok and makilala ka ng tao, it's time to put [the walls] down,” she said.

Her co-actors Joshua Garcia and Ronnie Alonte also affirmed how far from those stereotypes Julia really is in real life.

“Englishera lang talaga siya… pero 'pag nakita mo 'yung personality niya, mamamangha ka, jologs talaga siya,” Joshua said.

He added, “Napaka-down-to-earth niya, and wala siyang ka-arte-arte sa katawan… ang ganda ganda niya, ang mestiza, tapos mas lalake pa sa'yo.”
