MANILA – Marjorie Barretto is delighted that her daughter Julia has found a good friend in Inigo Pascual.

Marjorie made this statement during the red-carpet premiere of her daughter's debut movie “Para sa Hopeless Romantic” at the SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City on Tuesday.

“I’m so happy. Maraming salamat sa support na binibigay nila kay Julia and Inigo. They are very, very good friends,” she said.

Marjorie also revealed that her daughter and Pascual share everything with each other.

“They always talk to each other on the phone kahit madaling araw. That’s the best eh, yung they enjoy working with each other. They look forward to working with each other. I’m so happy na finally Julia has found a friend in Inigo,” she said.

Just like Marjorie, Inigo’s father, actor Piolo Pascual, previously said that he supports the team-up of his son and Julia.

In fact, Piolo gave the two young stars some advice.

“I only hope for the best. Kasi siyempre mahirap dahil may mga expectations 'yung mga tao. Sinasabi ko, ‘Don’t stress yourself over anything. Just enjoy it. Just do what you’re asked to do. Just deliver. Kasi at the end of the day, kung ano man ang magiging resulta, labas na kayo diyan as long as you did your job,’” he said.

“Para sa Hopeless Romantic” is not the first time that Julia and Inigo worked with each other. Prior to the Star Cinema film, they have already starred in several television projects.
