Julia Barretto explains how Iza Calzado is like an ‘ate’ and ‘a mom’ to her

It's no surprise that Julia Barretto is one of many who look up to a woman of beauty and substance that is Iza Calzado. 

The two, who have had the chance to work together in the primetime series "A Love To Last" and "Ngayon at Kailanman," have formed a special bond over the years. They never lost touch, and if given the chance, Julia would be very happy to reunite with her "Ate" Iza again on screen.

"I worked with her a couple of times before and she’s remained to be one of my good friends from the business. She’s like an Ate to me, like a mom most of the time also," Julia said of the actress, according to a report by Push. 

"We keep in touch and she also sends me her good energy and her love. Alam naman natin lahat kung gaano kaganda 'yung energy ni Ms. Iza. So she always makes me feel na she’s still very much present and around," she added.

Julia also shared how Iza is "very busy" right now, who is in a lock-in taping for the upcoming "Darna: The TV Series." "Two months na siyang naka-lock-in for 'Darna'," she said.

Much like her Ate, Julia is also busy with her schedule. She recently topbilled a horror film, and now, she's part of an online series that tackles bullying.

A firm believer of how bullying should never be normalized, Julia has this to say for people who find themselves being in that situation.

“Stand up for yourself. Don’t take it personally. Usually the bullies are the ones who really have a problem. Talk to somebody about it and don’t allow it. Don’t tolerate being bullied. You show them you can’t be bullied and ignored. Ignorance is bliss," she pressed.
