Julia is not ‘plastic’, says Direk Cathy

Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina has praised Julia Barretto for her no-nonsense attitude. 

The lauded director addressed the common misconceptions about Julia, whom she worked with for the first time in ”Unexpectedly Yours", during her Bloggers Conference last November 30.

"I have [never] worked with Julia. Ang tanging alam ko she's a Barretto and she has the makings of a Barretto," she began.

"At dahil love ko si Claudine (Julia’s aunt) at nakatrabaho ko na din ang nanay (Marjorie) niya, I suppose pareho lang sila ng ugali. And true enough!”

She continued, "Mukha silang maldita! Alam mo naman ang mga Barretto, mga mukhang maldita but they're not. Maldita ang pagmumukha, wala na silang magagawa, ganoon na 'yun eh, but they're pleasant to work with."

Direk Cathy added that she really liked that Julia is not in any way “fake”.

She said, ”Hindi siya pa-goody goody na ‘everything is okay’ tapos pag talikod mo kung ano ano ang sinasabi. That's what I like about her. If she doesn't like [something], she doesn't like it [and] you'll see it.”

Julia portrays the strong-willed and independent Yanni in “Unexpectedly Yours”, which is now showing in cinemas nationwide.
