Julia Barretto revealed that Mr. M once fined her for underage drinking

She added that Mr. M has helped her with all the values she has learned and can take with her as she grows up. 

  • Star Magic stars pay tribute to the “Man Behind the Magic”, Johnny Manahan.
  • Julia Barretto then shared a memorable moment with Mr. M while attending a Star Magic Ball.

As the man behind Star Magic, Johnny Manahan or Mr. M celebrates its 50th Anniversary, celebrities that started and grew up with ABS-CBN’s talent agency, Star Magic, shared their most memorable moments with their ‘Tatay M.’

One of the celebrities that Mr. M helped with her career is Julia Barretto. Though the star is now under VIVA Artists Agency, Julia still shared one of her memorable moments with Mr. M himself.

During an online conference of celebrities for the tribute for “the Man behind the Magic”, Julia said that she remembered an incident that happened during a Star Magic Ball.

“Ako personally, the same with everybody siguro, ang dami kong mashi-share na moments pero siguro ang pinaka-tumatak talaga sakin is… may isang Star Magic Ball and siyempre ang pwede lang uminom any ang mga 18 and above (of age). Pero nung mga panahong yun, 17 palang ako and uminom ako ng champagne,” Julia said during the tribute.

This lead to the young celebrity to be fined by Star Magic and Mr. M for underage drinking.

“And then ASAP next weekend, na-fine ako. Php10,000 (for) underage drinking. So ayan ang pinaka-memorable moment ko with Mr. M. Nung siningil niya ko ng 10,000 as fine for underage drinking noon.”

Julia then thanked Mr. M for everything he has taught her, helped her with, and said that she can never imagine Star Magic being the same without him.

“Mr. M this is your tribute. Gusto kong magpasalamat sa lahat for taking me in and for just [helping me with] all the values that I have with me now and will take with me as I grow older. I’m so so so thankful to have been a part of Star Magic and to have you as a father. I don’t think I will be able to thank you enough just for absolutely everything, for making my dreams come true, for believing in me, and for looking after all of us and treating us like your own. I can’t imagine Star Magic without you as our dad.”

Following the shut down of ABS-CBN, Mr. M decided to move to Brightlight Productions and signed on as its Production Consultant.
