Julia Barretto and her onscreen partner Joshua Garcia appeared in an episode of Tonight with Boy Abunda, wherein Garcia was asked what his thoughts were about Barretto’s daring fashion sense and style.
There he expressed concern over her choice not to wear a bra and cycling short at times.
“Si Julia di sya nag-iingat minsan sa susuotin nya. Tapos minsan wala pa syang cycling, tas minsan di sya nag-aano [bra], nipple tape lang nilalagay nya.”
Julia then explained her side in an amusing answer, saying that the bra won’t have anything to hold on to anyways.
“Ako naman din walang kakapitan ‘yung bra.
“So mas masakit talaga kasi nagtatry naman yung bra ko eh, pero wala talaga syang makapitan.”
She also said that she only learned to wear cycling shorts from her partner and that her fashion style is one of her ways of expressing herself.
“Sa bra naman, pwede naman, mag-baby bra ka na lang,” Garcia joked.
“Tignan mo pati nga baby bra di kumakapit sa ‘kin, kaya nga tape lang nga, eh.”
Netizens expressed their amusement regarding Barretto’s answer and some of them even said that they can relate to.
