As you grow older, you'll start to realize that, in friendships, what matters the most is not the quantity but the quality. Finding out who your real friends are is an important realization for many people. But this is especially true in an industry like showbiz.
For actress Sofia Andres, friendships are something she's "very picky" with. In a heart-to-heart conversation on Erich Gonzales' YouTube channel, the 22-year-old new mom opened up about her closest friends in the industry, and it's a ~really~ short list.
On why she's become selective with the people she keeps close, Sofia explains, "I've experienced a lot of things, siyempre, with other people from the past. Parang along the way, na-realize ko na may mga taong dapat nawawala kasi sayang yung energy, sayang yung time, sayang yung effort."
To add to the sentiment, Erich also points out that it's not about the quantity anyway. For Sofia's most trusted friends in showbiz, it's really all about quality. First, she mentions Kathryn Bernardo. "Actually, siya lang yung natira," Sofia says.
Sofia met Kathryn when she was only 14 years old when they starred together in the Princess and I alongside Daniel Padilla, Enrique Gil, and Khalil Ramos. Princess and I was Sofia's first teleserye. Now, Kathryn is also a ninang to Zoe, Sofia's daughter with boyfriend Daniel Miranda.
"Si Kathryn din no, isa rin siya sa mga totoong tao talaga," adds in Erich.
Aside from Kathryn, Sofia also mentioned fellow new mom Janella Salvador and said, "Yung journey niya buong ano... kinumusta ko siya, but we never hung out." Sofia and Janella have previously worked together on the horror film Bloody Crayons alongside Maris Racal and Jane Oineza. In January 2021, Janella officially introduced her newborn son with Markus Paterson to the public.
