A netizen asked Optimum Star Claudine Barretto about which Julia is better in acting: Julia Montes or Julia Barretto.
Claudine replied that Julia Montes is better compared to her own niece Julia Barretto.
Another netizen asked Claudine if her answer was made out of honesty or with the intent to spite the younger Barretto.
The 40-year-old actress said, “Sweetheart BOTH.”
Julia Montes started in the entertainment industry as early as 2001 in GMA Network’s Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga with Angelu de Leon and her first appearance as a Kapamilya was in 2004 for ABS-CBN’s Hiram with Anne Curtis, Kris Aquino, and Heart Evangelista. Since then, Julia slowly built a name for herself with her projects:
- Mara Clara in 2010 with Kathryn Bernardo
- Muling Buksan ang Puso with Enrique Gil
- Ikaw Lamang with Coco Martin, Kim Chiu and Jake Cuenca which lasted for 7 months
- Doble Kara from 2015 to 2017
- Asintado in 2018 her last TV series before she flew to Germany to be with her father
Julia is now back with a Sunday series 24/7 with Edu Manzano, Joem Bascon, and Arjo Atayde. Netizens were glad to finally see the phenomenal actress back on TV.
While Julia Barretto started in the entertainment industry five years later after Montes, Barretto has starred in eight films. She was also part of Jake Cuenca’s Palos in 2008 as Pamela Kiev, one of the supporting roles.
