Despite not being together anymore, actress Julia Barretto said that she is still in contact with former boyfriend actor Joshua Garcia, and they remain good friends.

In an interview by Boy Abunda for his YouTube Show “Who Are You When No One Is Watching?”, Julia said that she and Joshua have not given up their tandem even if she is in a relationship with actor Gerald Anderson.

Julia said that she jokes with Joshua a lot when they communicate these days.

“We don’t give up on our tandem. I’m in touch with him…definitely. One of the things I appreciate about him is that he respects Ge. And it shows how much he has matured a lot. He respects Ge and that means a lot to me,” she said.

Julia recalled a chat with Joshua when she asked him about his girlfriend.

“How are you? May girlfriend ka na ba?” Julia asked Joshua. “Huwag ka munang mag-girlfriend.”

When Joshua asked Julia why she doesn’t want him to have a girlfriend, Julia said: “Sabi ko basta wag ka muna mag-girlfriend.”

Julia encouraged Joshua to enjoy what he has now. “He’s a brilliant actor. It’s not the time to be limited right now. I want him to really enjoy his time.” She added that she and Joshua will shoot a movie together under Black Sheep Productions later this year.

On the other hand, Julia said that she is blessed to have Gerald in her life.

“I always tell him how lucky I am to be with somebody who can guide me in life, who can ground me, who can put sense in my head,” Julia said. “I can talk to him about anything, and he puts everything in his perspective for me.”

Julia also said that marriage does not scare her. “It’s exciting. I’m curious.”

When asked, what would be her answer should Gerald proposes to her one of these months, Julia answered: “Yes!”
