MANILA – Julia Barretto appeared uncertain when asked if her “Mirabella” leading man, Enrique Gil, is wooing her.

This comes after it was reported that the actor visited her at the hospital when she was recently confined.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, Barretto said they are still “getting to know each other.”

“At this point of the show and how long we’ve known each other, we are still getting to that point na we’re still getting to know each other more and more every time we work together. I see him almost every day. Sa every day na 'yun, mas nakikilala ko siya. We are at that point,” she said.

Prodded about the real score between them, Barretto said, “Quen and I are really good friends. I’ve gotten close to him and I’ve gotten to know him. He’s really so much fun to work with.”

Meanwhile, Gil said he did not expect that he and Barretto would become “really, really close.”

“We are good friends naman. We got closer. From the start hanggang ngayon, I didn’t expect na we would be that close. This is different,” he said.

Asked if it’s still premature to say that he is planning to take their relationship to the next level, Gil said, “I don’t know. I just can say na nagulat talaga ako na we got super close and that’s a really nice thing.”

With “Mirabella” nearing its end, Gil is hoping they could work again together in their future projects.

“Julia is really sad kasi patapos na ito. Siyempre ayaw niya mawala kasi we don’t know where we are going to work again. Sabi niya, ‘Sayang sana mag-extend pa or sana next show magkasama pa kami.’ At least we really built that friendship,” he said.
