With a new two-year contract with the Kapamilya network, Sharon Cuneta admitted she is really looking forward to doing a movie, which is set to start filming later this year.
"The big surprise is I’m doing a movie this year. Finally after how many years I’m doing a movie. Unfortunately hindi ko pa talaga masabi pa with whom. Ang masasabi ko na lang sa audience ay kumapit kayo (laughs). Parang maraming sasaya. Yun lang yung masasabi ko,” she said.
The 50-year-old actress chose to not confirm if this project is her much anticipated reunion movie with Gabby Concepcion. "Ganun ba? Naku tingnan natin yan kaya ang nakalaan (laughs),” she added.
In preparation for her new role, Sharon revealed she has already lost a considerable amount of weight.
"So far I think 36 or 37 pounds. I allowed myself to eat and then ang nangyari was nagpi-pica-pica na lang ako. So instead of three meals a day, iniiwasan ko yung carbs so walang bread which is my favorite, rice pero hindi naman ako mahilig sa rice. So titikim ng ulam masaya na ako.
“And then for some reason parang nawala yung sweet tooth ko so hindi na ako naghahanap ng sobrang tamis. Ang pinakamatamis na kinakain ko sago’t gulaman or almond jelly, ganyan (laughs). Hindi na yung cake. Parang nagsawa. And I’m still losing (weight). I still have to lose weight. I’m inspired because I’m working again. Tapos I miss wearing the kind of clothes I really like to wear,” she shared.
Given that she was busy campaigning for husband Francis Pangilinan, Sharon said the hectic schedule and other personal events also helped her lose weight.
"Sa awa ng Diyos tapos na yung kampanya. So makakapahinga at makaka-focus na sa trabaho talaga. Kaya rin ako excited. At saka kaya rin ako pumayat dahil sa kampanya, stress at hindi rin matatawaran yung ang dami kong mahal sa buhay na nawala this year,” she explained.
To her loyal fans, the Megastar also gave a message which also explained why she has kept silent on social media for some time now. "Nagtatago ako ng matagal, you know that from Facebook from lahat na. Nagtago talaga ako. Wala talaga akong pinost kahit nagkakampanya kami kasi ang dahilan heto na, I was really doing my best to lose as much weight as possible. And to surprise you with all the things that are going to happen this year like a two-year contract now so tuloy tuloy na ako sa TV, iba ibang shows yan. And then I’m going to do a movie finally this year. Sa August start na ng shooting. So sa August payat na ako nun in Jesus name (laughs). Tapos, tapos na rin ang kampanya and basta maligayang maligaya ako sa kinaroroonan ko ngayon sa aking career at sa aking personal na buhay,” she said.
