Seeing Julia Barretto so fit and trim, it's hard to believe she has not been working out for a year.
She said when we caught up with her recently, "I haven't worked out in a year, but I have to, starting next week because Block Z, the movie that I'm doing that involves off zombies requires a lot of cardio.
"I need to do a lot of cardio and a lot of muscle building for it.
"There's gonna be a lot of running, so I need a good stamina for that.
"And I need strength because I'm gonna be carrying a lot of different weapons."
The Kapamilya actress chatted with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainmet Portal) and other members of the press on the first day of Bench Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019 last Friday, March 29, in Bonifacio Global City.
Julia has not been going to the gym because of her busy schedule, how does she maintain figure even if she is not working out?
She said, "I think a good balance of everything is the secret to that.
"If today I wanna binge-eat, tomorrow, make sure you watch what you eat.
"And then, it's just the balance. It's just the balance at the end of the day."
Julia said shell be busy working on three new films, which will be released this year. She is currently filming her first movie tie-up with Gerald Anderson titled Between Maybes and a horror flick titled Block Z.
No summer and Holy Week break?
Julia told PEP.ph, "I'm gonna be busy shooting a few films so I'm not sure if I'm gonna be able to find time to really go on a summer trip.
"But we'll squeeze it in. We'll find a way to go to the beach. But beach is the number one plan for summer."
And here, Julia shared an OOTD tip.
She said, "Make sure that whatever you're wearing will complement your body and your body type.
"And be confident in all of the photos because it will show in the photos if you're being confident or not. So be confident with your body."
