MANILA - Claudine Barretto, who is gearing up for her big-screen comeback, showed the results of hours at the gym in a summer photo with her friends.
On Instagram, the 35-year-old actress shared photos of her in Anvaya Cove, including one where she is seen sporting a turquoise bikini. "The gang takes Anvaya by storm," she said in the caption.
The revealing photo, which easily got thousands of likes from supporters and long-time fans, follows a series of posts chronicling Barretto's fitness routine in the past months.
The "Marina" star has been training at an Elorde gym in Quezon City, based on her posts, and at one point even worked out with TV superstar Dingdong Dantes. Barretto has also subscribed to a food service which delivers specially made meals for specific diets.
Barretto's recent fitness efforts coincide with announcements or rumors of her upcoming acting projects, after years away from the limelight and legal feuds with her husband, actor Raymart Santiago, and estranged sister, actress Gretchen Barretto.
She has teased a reunion project with Kris Aquino, titled "Etiquette for Mistresses," and just last month announced a new movie with long-time collaborator, director Wenn Deramas, with the working title "Pinilit Kong Limutin Ka."
