Sharon Cuneta took to social media to greet her fellow showbiz veteran, Vilma Santos, on her birthday.

The latter, dubbed local showbiz's "Star for All Seasons", is celebrating her 68th birthday this Wednesday, November 3.

On Instagram, Sharon posted a picture of Vilma, along with her birthday message for her "ate Vi."


"Recently I saw on YouTube that an athlete who scored a homerun in his 40s was asked how it felt to make a homerun at his age. His answer: 'How old would you think you were if you didn’t know your age?' (I might have paraphrased this.) If me, I’d think 19 or oldest, 23. My Ate Vi would probably say the same," she said.

"Happy, happy birthday to you, dearest Ate Vi! You are ageless to us your Vilmanians. I love you!!! May God bless you always," she added.

 

 

Sharon, as she previously admitted on the talk show Gandang Gabi Vice, has been a huge fan of Vilma since she was a child.

"Maka-ate Vi talaga ako," Sharon, who is known in showbiz as the "Megastar", said. "Si Ate Vi naging kapitbahay ko, eh, for a while. Dinadalhan ko pa siya ng prutas kahit hindi niya ako kilala."

"Tapos minsan naka-parang dune buggy siya, inimbita namin siya, parang kumaway akong ganun, hindi ko alam kung namukhaan niya ako. Ang liit liit ko pa nun, jusko, grade school pa lang ako. Tapos umakyat siya, eh si Mommy nandoon din, thrilled na thrilled. Pinainom namin siya ng water, ice water. She was very gracious. Humingi lang ako ng autograph tapos umalis na siya."

Both Vilma and Sharon are considered some of the best actresses in showbiz, but have surprisingly never worked on an acting project together. 

Nevertheless, in an interview with Boy Abunda, Sharon said that she would love to do a movie with Vilma, and has in fact requested for a project with her, along with other screen icons Nora Aunor and Maricel Soriano.

"Oh my God, it's been forever that I've been requesting...Yes, I've requested. But nothing pushes through," she said. 

"My God, these are people I used to just watch. Go to the theaters to watch. Even Maria (Maricel), who is my age," she added, as she expressed her excitement about the possibility of working with the three.
