Julia Barretto wasn't kidding when she said that she was willing to audition to be the next Darna.
At the press conference for her upcoming film "Between Maybes" yesterday, May 2, Julia revealed that she actually stopped by the Star Cinema office for the "Darna" auditions just right before the event.
"May mga nakapila nga, eh. Actually, inunahan ko na. Pumasok na nga lang ako. Sabi ko, ‘Minsan lang naman ‘to. Bahala na,'" she said, before jokingly adding, "Hindi nila ako sineryoso.”
She continued, playfully, “Sabi ko nga, 'Maghuhubad na po ba ako? Kasi ready na po ako, eh!' So umiikot-ikot ako doon, pero tinawanan nila 'ko. Baka ayaw nila. Baka ‘di nila nakitaan."
Early last month, Julia expressed her desire to portray the iconic Pinay superhero on the big screen, even if it meant that she had to go the audition only wearing her “panty’t bra.”
