Gretchen Barretto surprised netizens after she spotted shopping at a gadget store in Greenhills Shopping Center.
A video of the elite and former actress accompanying businessman Atong Ang to buy an iPhone in the shopping destination was posted on TikTok. Gretchen even smiled and waved to the uploader’s camera.
“Hi maam #gretchenbarretto,” read the TikTok user’s caption on the video that is already nearing one million views on the platform.
Gretchen has been making the most of her time out of the limelight. In a recent talk with celebrity beauty doctor Aivee Teo, Gretchen mused about having a better life without social media.
“I have freedom to do what I want to do with all sincerity. I don’t do things out of wanting to show people. And I feel people more because I also feel their sincerity,” said the actress.
“And even when I dress now, I dress for myself and not for the public. You know, you don’t feel pressured to overspend, because you feel like you’re gonna have to show off, so it’s more real.
“So I save more money now,” Gretchen added in jest.
