After their highly-publicized split, former reel-to-real life sweethearts Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia are still cordial with each other, dismissing notions that breakups are bound to get chaotic, especially if it involves celebrities.

In an interview with Boy Abunda, Julia shared that she’s still ~friends~ with her ex-beau, and talks to him from time to time. "I tell him, 'How are you? May girlfriend ka na ba? Huwag ka munang maggi-girlfriend. Sabi niya sa akin, 'Ba't ba ayaw mo ako magka-girlfriend?' Sabi ko, 'Basta, huwag ka muna magka-girlfriend. Enjoy what you have now.'”

The reason behind her advice, Julia explains, is that she wants Joshua to enjoy his “prime years” as an actor. "Because he's young and he's in his prime and he's a brilliant actor. It's not the time to be limited right now. I want him to really enjoy his time."

She also reveals that Joshua and her boyfriend Gerald Anderson are on good terms. “I think one of the things I really appreciate about it is he respects Ge a lot, and that says a lot about Josh as well and how much he has grown and matured. He respects Ge, and that means a lot to me."
