Julie Ann San Jose Says Fans Of Her Love Team With Elmo Magalona Wonder Why He'S Paired With Barbie Forteza In A Sitcom

JULIE ANNE SAN JOSE was born on May 17, 1994 so she’s turning 18 on Thursday. She’ll have a birthday concert tonight, Wednesday, 7 PM at Hard Rock Cafe Makati and is also the featured celebrity on MYX music channel. She started singing “Habang May Buhay” when she was only 2 then joined showbiz at 3 as a contestant in Eat Bulaga’s Little Miss Philippines. She later joined Popstar Kids and became a part of the group known as Sugar Pop. She also hosted Planet Q on QTV then became a regular in “SOP” and “Party Pilipinas”.

She tried acting in soaps like “Gaano Kadalas ang Minsan”, the sitcom “Andres de Saya” and the teen romance “Tween Hearts” that ends this May. Now, she’s shooting her first movie, “Just One Summer”, with her ka-love team, Elmo Magalona.

“We’ve shot about 50% na in various locations like San Miguel, Bulacan and San Pablo, Laguna,” she says. “Taga-probinsiya ako rito. Elmo used to be my childhood friend but they moved to the city. As a teenager, bumalik siya sa’min. His parents, Joel Torre and Alice Dixson, are separated at galit siya sa dad niya. Ako naman, my dad is Boboy Garovillo and stepmom ko si Cherry Pie Picache, with Gloria Romero as my lola. Ibang-iba ito kasi drama, so they got an acting coach for us, si Ina Feleo. Noong una, intimidated ako sa kanilang lahat kasi ang gagaling nila. But they’re all very helpful sa amin ni Elmo kaya naging palagay agad ang loob ko with them.”

She and Elmo are being built up as a love team (they won as most promising love team in the Guillermo Mendoza Awards) to help boost the box office chances of their movie. How did she feel when Elmo was paired with Barbie Forteza in “Tweets for My Sweet”?

“Nagtaka rin ang fans ng love team namin, but we respect and trust management’s decision. Siguro naman they know what’s best for us.”

Julie Anne invites you to watch her Hard Rock concert tonight, with Jay-R and Kris Lawrence as her guest. Will Elmo be there? “I invited him, so sana makarating siya.”
