Dennis Padilla is one proud papa!
The legendary comedian spoke to PUSH recently about the continued success of Julia Barretto, his oldest daughter with ex-wife Marjorie, who now stars in the Black Sheep-produced romantic drama “Between Maybes” with Gerald Anderson. Dennis says he couldn’t be more amazed at his daughter’s acting prowess.
He explained, “Well I’m so proud, kasi ang talent niyan andiyan na, hindi mo na kailangan turuan. Kahit hindi mo na i-workshop ‘yan natural actress na ‘yan dahil sa side palang ng Tatay ko, ako, sa side palang ni Gretchen (Barretto), Marjorie (Barretto) at Claudine (Barretto), dugong artista talaga ‘yan.”
Dennis has carved quite the impressive father-daughter bond with Julia in spite of his separation from her mother way back in 2009. He attempts to maintain this relationship, even if it's just through the phone.
He explained, “Ako once in a while I text her (Julia), kasi sa edad niya kapag hindi siya masyado nag-open up, hindi ko masyado kinakalkal. Ang ginagawa ko lang once in a while, once in a week, tini-text ko lang.”
“Between Maybes” is now showing in cinemas nationwide. You can watch the trailer here:
Julia is also part of Mikhail Red’s much-anticipated zombie movie “Block Z”. It is slated for release very soon.
