Megastar Sharon Cuneta couldn’t help but be proud of seasoned actress Cherie Gil after the latter won Best Supporting Actress in this year’s Gawad Urian.
Cherie, who won after her portrayal in the movie Citizen Jake, was also emotional when she received the award.
“CONGRATULATIONS, dearest Cherie!!! This URIAN win is LOOOOOOONG OVERDUE! I love you and am sooo proud of you! See you soon! But MY TREAT!!! Miss you, PARTNER!” Sharon wrote on Instagram.
Cherie was elated with Sharon’s message and told her, “My dearest dearest!!! Thank you love. Shawie!! Can’t wait!!! Let’s do this!! Love you mucho. Big tightest hug!”
Cherie and Sharon’s friendship goes way back. The two worked together in the iconic 1985 film Bituing Walang Ningning where Cherie was the antagonist Lavinia Arguelles while Sharon was Dorina Pineda.
In one of Sharon’s previous comments about Cherie, she described her as her ‘better half’ and has always been a huge part of her career.
