Sharon Cuneta did not forget to celebrate the 20th year of her friendship with actress Judy Ann Santos as she posted on her Instagram yesterday, June 1. The Megastar wrote a lengthy caption to honor the friendship she has with the actress.
“I love you, Juday, my sister-by-choice. With all of my heart and from the very depths of it. On our 20th year of friendship this 2022, I can only look forward to our bond strengthening even more, as it has only strengthened over the years after our only movie together thus far…Mahal na mahal na mahal kita…Hindi lang talaga dugo ang nagiging pamilya. Minsan nga, mas higit pa,” she wrote.
Last May 21, Judy Ann sent Sharon and her family food that she personally made herself. Along with her homemade food, Judy Ann sent Sharon a letter as well to try and comfort her after the results of the recent national elections. Her husband, Senator Kiko Pangilinan was a Vice Presidential candidate for the 2022 elections.
“Sa dami ng mga nangyayari ngayon, I hope you’ll find comfort with these food I made for you and the whole family. Each day is truly a blessing … may mga pagsubok man, nalalagpasan pa rin with a lot of help from our chosen family, which is our friends,” Judy Ann wrote.
The 56-year-old actress felt very blessed to have a friend like Judy Ann. In their text conversation that Sharon also shared in the post, the actress was more thankful for the letter that Judy Ann gave since she collects all the letters that her friends give her.
“I often reread them when I am feeling down. I am blessed with just a few friends, but REAL ones…never expecting anything back except my love and friendship too…They are truly blessings I treasure,” she added.
The two have been friends ever since they starred in the only film they’ve been together, Magkapatid, back in 2002. Since then, the two have been bonding on and off cam, sharing snippets of their lifelong friendship through their personal accounts.
