Julie Was Born In Argentina And Initially Wanted To Become A Print Model
Julieta Susana Gonzalo was born on September 9, 1981, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She spent the early years of her life living in Buenos Aires but when she was eight years old, her entire family relocated to Miami, Florida, in the United States of America, where they began a new life.
The story of her childhood would not be complete without mentioning an accident she was involved in which left a scar on her face – above the bridge of her nose.
Julie Gonzalo was said to have nursed the ambition of being a professional print model, to appear on the pages of national and international magazines; this led to her joining the noble profession at a very tender stage. As she grew up, the ambition of being a print model began to change as she focused on being an actress instead, she immediately enrolled in acting classes to actualize the dream of carving a niche for herself in the movie industry.
Aside from the acting classes Julie Gonzalo attended, there is no further detail of her academic pursuit. It is a known fact that the Argentine-born actress is very fluent in the Spanish language and uses it a lot during the press conferences of her films.
Her Love Life Has Been Largely Left To Speculations
If Julie Gonzalo had proceeded with her childhood dream of being a model only, she would have surely left a mark in that industry with her distinctive bluish eyes and lovely long hair. She commands a very impressive height of 5 ft 8 inches with a commensurate weight. Thanks to constantly working out and eating healthy, she has maintained her amazing physique.
Given the above, there is no doubt that a lot of people desire to be identified as her romantic partner. Also, it wouldn’t be out of place to assume that the actress has had a busy love life. Nonetheless, she has largely kept this aspect of her life discreet and away from the prying public eyes.
It is believed that she has never been married and it’s pretty hard to tell if she is seeing anyone at the moment. But sometime in 2014, Julie Gonzalo was spotted at Miami Beach having a swell of a time with a fellow regarded as her boyfriend.
