Julia Montes talked about her showbiz break
Kapamilya actress Julia Montes revealed in a recent interview the reason behind her decision to take a break from show business.
The last series that Julia did before she went to Germany was the action-drama series Asintado in 2018. In a recent interview by Mega Entertainment’s G3 San Diego, she elaborated on her showbiz hiatus that became controversial.
Rumors surfaced in the past that she went to Germany to hide her pregnancy and allegedly, the rumored father of her baby is Ang Probinsyano actor Coco Martin.
However, both camps have already denied these rumors in the past. Julia Montes stressed that leaving the Philippine entertainment industry for a while came from her desire to be a daughter to her father who she just met when she was already 21 years old.
Before“Asintado,” gusto ko na (umalis). Sinasabi ko na, parang gusto kong puntahan si Papa. Parang gusto ko i-try lang ‘yung magpahinga lang du’n (sa Germany),” the actress said. She also said that she used to say in jest that she wanted to be just a daughter and that she won’t be focusing on her work.
“Ta’s ang joke ko, Gusto kong magpakaanak lang. ‘Yung ‘ di ako magwo-work, ta’s anak lang ako muna. And then ‘yun nga, after ‘Asintado,‘ sabi ko, parang gusto kong i-fill ‘yung missing years with Papa. Kasi ang tagal, eh. Hindi ko ine-expect na magkikita kami,” Julia Montes said.
Fortunately, through her fans, she was able to finally meet her father. Julia said that a CocoJul fan (her love team fandom with Coco Martin), became a way to meet her biological father.
She was shown a photo of her father after attending a mass in Quiapo. When she showed it to her mother. “Sinend ko kay Mama. Sabi ko, ‘Mama, ito ba si Papa?” Sabi niya, ’S’an mo nakuha ‘yan?’ Sabi ko, ‘Oh, my gosh, confirmed!’ Kasi lumaki ako na hindi sa ‘ kin sinabi ‘yung real story, eh,” Julia shared.
