At the YES! Magazine 100 Most Beautiful presscon held last July 2 at the Richmonde Hotel in Eastwood City, Quezon City, Barbie Forteza gave updates on the projects she's involved with and about former screen partner Joshua Dionisio.
While she was being interviewed, current love team partner Derrick Monasterio and friend Joyce Ching made "cameos" on the background that made Barbie giggle.
Barbie's face lighted up even more when the topic shifted to Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera.
The "tween" star considers Marian as her idol. She excitedly recalls the first time she met her Tweets for My Sweet c0-star.
"Nung unang beses po akong nag-taping [ng Tweets for My Sweet], talagang na-starstruck po ako sa kanya. At saka, iba yung inaasahan ko sa nakita ko sa kanya.
"Kasi natakot talaga ako nung una ko siyang nakita. Kasi siyempre, Marian Rivera.
"Pero pagdating...parang wala lang. Para lang siyang bata. So, masaya. Masaya siyang katrabaho," gushed Barbie about Marian.
