After turning 37 years old this month, Sunshine Cruz is in the “best phase” of her life, both personally as a mother and profession ally as an actress.
This, the ABS-CBN talent herself proudly shared on Thursday at the press launch of her newest endorsement for White Glo Crave Away Toothpaste held at Victorino’s Restaurant in Tomas Morato, Quezon City.
“I love being 37. Hindi sa pagmamayabang, pero ito na yong pinakamasarap na phase ng buhay ko,” Sunshine told the entertainment press in an interview.
according to the actress, most of her happiness and contentment come from her family, specifically her three daughters, Angelina Isabelle, 12, Samantha Angeline, 9, and Angel Francesca, 8—all of whom she got full custody after her break up with husband Cesar Montano in 2013.
And now that her girls are growing up, Sunshine tries her best to have “an open relationship” with them. For example, she tells them if someone courts her, so they’ll tell her if someone likes them too.
“Para kasi kaming barkada ng mga anak ko, very open,” she said. “Even yong mga sexy na ginawa ko ng bata pa ako sa industriya, pinapaliwanag ko sa kanila para alam nila ang sasabihin kapag may nagtanong sa kanila.”
Asked if she would accept daring roles now, Sunshine answered she would have to ask the permission of her kids too.
Recalling her previous image as a daring actress, Sunshine explained how honored she felt that ABS-CBN has entrusted her with mature roles today.
She currently plays the mother of Alex Gonzaga in primetime teleserye Pure Love. Before this, she also portrayed mother roles in Galema and Dugong Buhay.
“Pinagkatiwalaan ako ng ABS-CBN. Biruin mo, binigyan ako ng tatlong projects sa loob lang ng isang taon,” the actress enthused.
About her love life, Sunshine admitted she is not currently looking for a new partner. “Work at mga anak ko lang muna talaga ngayon. Hndi ako naghahanap kasi dadating din tayo don,” she said.
Staying fit and beautiful
Sunshine’s positive outlook in life is also evident in her physical glow, which she further improves by eating healthy and keeping fit. By working hard, she has managed to stay beautiful and sexy throughout motherhood.
And because of this, the actress still gets endorsements from lifestyle and wellness brands just like White Glo, an Australian brand of toothpaste locally distributed by Brady Pharma Inc.
Asked how she felt about being considered an influential celebrity because of her endorsements, she answered, “Kahit na isa akong ina at separada, ina-acknowledge pa rin ako ng mga brands na ito. Kahit pa na mas maraming bata at magagandang pagpipilian. Kaya nakakakilig talaga para sa akin.”
Besides the privilege of endorsing the brand, Sunshine also explained how Crave Away toothpaste actually helps her in keeping her sexy figure especially because she loves to eat snacks and sweets.
“When I tried Crave away, it really helped suppress my appetite. Ngayon, hindi na ako kumakain ng potato chips, na nakaka-bloat ng tiyan dahil hindi na ako nag-crave,” she said.
Through years of research, White Glo has developed Crave Away with a unique and effective homeopathic herbal formula that is absorbed through the lining of the mouth, sending a signal of “fullness” to the brain. With this, appetite is controlled, and the desire to over-indulge is reduced.
“And the bonus part is that it doesn’t just clean your teeth as you brush, it also whitens it,” Sunshine beamed with her ever brilliant smile.
