While Sunshine Cruz can still give the younger sexy stars a run for their money, the actress, who scorched the big screen in movies such as “Ekis” and “Ang Kabit ni Mrs. Montero” is no longer interested in doing sexy roles.
“Hindi na uso ngayon ‘yon,” Cruz said. “Sinasabi ko naman palagi na kung maganda ‘yung project ay wala namang problema sa pagpapa-sexy. Pero sa totoo lang ang dami ko na pong kino-consider kasi I have three daughters.”
Moreover, Cruz pointed out that she has been getting meaty roles lately.
“Natutuwa na nga ako na napapansin kahit paano na may talent tayo sa acting. Nung nag-‘MMK’ ako ay maganda naman ‘yung review,” she said, referring to her appearance on the long-running drama anthology “Maalaala Mo Kaya” last May, where she played the mother of a boy who is battling leukemia.
She also pointed out her recent TV shows like “Dugong Buhay” and “Galema.” She is currently part of the hit series “Pure Love.”
“’Yung nabibigay ng mga roles sa akin sa teleserye ay puro talaga challenging and parang ang pakiramdam ko ay nagagampanan ko kasi sa isang taon nakakatatlong teleserye na ako sa awa ng Diyos dire-diretso naman ang project,” Cruz added.
Cruz, who made headlines after she broke up with her husband of 13 years Cesar Montano, stressed that her priority right now is her career and her three children.
“Ang focus ko ngayon ay trabaho, makaipon at makapag-provide ng magandang buhay para sa kanila,” she said.
Asked if she’s entertaining suitors, the actress said: “Naku hindi ko naman pinagiintindi ‘yang mga ‘yan.”
Cruz also explained her marriage to Montano is not yet annulled.
“Hindi pa annulled so I don’t consider na magpaligaw or ‘yung mga love life na ‘yan. Sakit sa ulo lang yan,” the actress added. (MNS)
