Julia Barretto willing to play lesbian role with Liza Soberano
Julia Barretto seems to be willing to experiment with roles as she revealed that she is ready to play a lesbian if partnered with fellow actress Liza Soberano.
After some fans proposed to film outfit Black Sheep that they should create a movie starring the two actresses as a lesbian couple, Barretto expressed that she will oblige if it happens.
One Twitter user @erikabengzon first tweeted a proposal to make a lesbian movie for Soberano, tagging Black Sheep and filmmakers Dan Villegas and Antoinette Jadaone.
“LESBIAN MOVIE FOR @lizasoberano PLEASE HEAR ME OUT @Black_SheepPH @danvillegas @tonetjadaone,” she said on Twitter yesterday, Jan. 22, accompanying her post with a series of photos of Soberano wearing a cap.
Netizen @creselsantillan meanwhile supported the idea, quoting the said tweet with an additional suggestion: “Yes pls!!!! @Black_SheepPH and sana si @BarrettoJulia yung leading lady nya.”
The 22-year-old actress took notice and simply answered: “I’ll dooooo it.”
I’ll dooooo it

Fans are unsurprisingly liking the actress’s sentiment and have expressed their support for such a movie to be made.
“I love you J,” @creselsantillan said in reply, sharing an intimate photo collage of the friends Soberano and Barretto.
