Julia Barretto has always been open about her admiration to her aunt, the Optimum Star Claudine Barretto. But as much as they share the same passion as actresses, the "Between Maybes" star believes she's nowhere near her Tita Claudine's excellence in her craft.
This is what Julia humbly admitted during an interview with PUSH when asked if she got Claudine's acting skills.
“Nakuha? Naku siguro wala. Siguro wala kasi nag-iisa lang siya, eh.”
“Napakahusay niya. And growing up, you know I’ve always been vocal about this, I have always been a fan of her and her work, of her projects, and I really looked up to her growing up as an actress,” she added.
Julia also emphasized that they're different, since Claudine is an incomparable actress. She stressed, “Pero again, siguro when it comes to our craft – iba. We’re different, because again, iba siya. Iba talaga siyang umarte… iba talaga siya.”
The actress also assured that while she may be different from her Tita, she still gives her 100 percent in every project she was given.
"Pero ako naman, I try my best everyday and every time I’m given the opportunity. And I always try to be at my best and perform and deliver."
She continued, “I just want everybody around me proud and everybody who trusts me with the projects proud and I think that’s always been the goal‚ to help breathe life into the character that I’m given."
