MANILA — Liza Soberano and Janella Salvador are kindly asking Julia Barretto to stop as the “Ngayon at Kailanman” star continues to update her millions-strong followers on social media with photos of her tropical vacation.
The three Star Magic artists, close friends who were launched in the same 2013 batch, had the playful exchange on Instagram on Tuesday after Barretto shared snaps of her in a swimsuit, relaxing by the beach.
“You need to stop before we all have heart attacks,” Soberano commented, in jest. “You’re just so beautiful.”
Barretto replied: “Excuse me, miss, do you realize how much heart attacks you’ve already given us with your beautiful face? Because I lost count of mine.”
Tagging both her friends, Salvador then chimed in, saying, “All the heart attacks in this country are being caused by both of you so you both better stop.”
Responding to Salvador, Barretto wrote: “Do you realized that every single time [Liza] and I have to perform with you with your perfect face and your perfect voice we get a heart attack? You stop.”
The conversation, seen by Barretto’s 6.4 million followers, drew amused reactions and thousands of likes.
Barretto, who recently wrapped her primetime series “Ngayon at Kailanman,” is currently on a two-week vacation spanning several destinations, making for a wealth of Instagram updates that even made her a Twitter trend on Monday night.
The break, it appears, is also a meaningful for Barretto.
“To be absolutely honest,” she wrote in an Instagram Stories update, “I am extremely excited but at the same time extremely nervous for our next destinations… Only because as early as now I can already tell that these places will change my life and help me find my peace and serenity.”
“Here’s to the year of getting out of my comfort zone, surrendering, and most of all, living,” she said.
