Fans get uber excited whenever they hear that former couple Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion would share the screen or stage together. But how does the megastar feel about it?
In a recent digital press conference, Sharon was asked if she’s prepared to work again with her former husband on a big-screen project. Her answer? “It’s a welcome thing for me.”
“Any movie with Gabby is a welcome thing for me, even if it turns out to be the most romantic in terms of scenes because at one point in our lives, we were married,” she averred.
“So people would be more accepting of that, I think. Yes, I’m ready to work a hundred percent with Gabby again. There’s no bad blood between us. And of course, no matter what we do, no matter what we say or don’t say about each other, he will always be KC’s father. We were a family once and I carried his name once, too. We’ll always be connected because of our daughter so we might as well have a good friendship,” she carried on.
According to the Megastar, she’s happy with her former husband’s present state — being happily married and having a happy life.
“On my part, I’m happy being married to Kiko (Sen. Francis Pangilinan) and having my family. One thing more, our daughter KC has grown up into a responsible adult and a successful one at that. So I think to have and maintain a good friendship with Gabby would be very good not just for the two of us but for our daughter as well.”
Considering that theirs was the leading love team during the ‘80s, Sharon strongly believes that many of their supporters would still want to see them in a grand movie after all these times.
“I know that we have a following that grew up with us. Probably, I have some bigger hits with other actors like Robin Padilla and Richard Gomez because Gabby and I weren’t paired for a long time already but I think a lot of people are waiting for that reunion movie,” she explained.
“And definitely, I’m one of those. So I really hope that before I retire from the ‘biz, we’d be able to collaborate on a film once again or maybe even do concerts because he also does concerts. We can do so much together still,” she added.
“We are still Sharon and Gabby. It’s already there and I think it will be in the history books, in the annals of Philippine movie history. I don’t want that to be erased. I’m proud of that team-up!” Sharon ended.
