Since 1984, Gretchen Barretto has stuck around the showbiz industry. That’s almost 34 years, quite a long time for a celebrity to spend most of her time on. But during the past few years, it was evident that the famous Barretto sister has been out of the spotlight—or chooses to, as implied by her close friend RS Francisco in recent exclusive interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP).
Apparently, La Greta allegedly expressed her desire to finally give up her spot in showbiz. Or in simple terms, retire from her duties as a celebrity.
According to Francisco, Gretchen even turned down an offer from a Hollywood producer, a certain Jhett, as she doesn’t want to be a part of showbiz any longer.
“Maganda yung film, pero ayokong i-press release yung title, baka hindi niya gawin, ma-award ako. Ayaw na kasi niyang mag-showbiz. Nag-i-enjoy siya being normal, having fun with friends, laughing everyday, and with her real friends talaga.”
Apparently, Francisco set up a dinner for Gretchen to meet Jhett, only for the actress to say no to the offer. He said that she’s had enough of showbiz, and just wanted to pursue a different endeavor.
“Sawa na raw siya sa paga-artista. I respect that naman. She would rather do her own thing, which I assume is her online wish granting as of the moment.”
Meanwhile, the 48-year-old star and her camp have yet to comment on the issue.
