“Maybe This Time” star Ruffa Gutierrez says her casting alongside Sarah Geronimo and Coco Martin makes her feel younger.

“It’s a love triangle between me, Coco, and Sarah. I’m not Coco’s mother in the movie, not even Sarah’s aunt. I feel like a teenager,” shares Ruffa in an interview in “Tapatan Ni Tunying” airing this Thursday (May 29).

The actress also says that she admires Coco’s acting talent, the secret to their onscreen chemistry despite their age gap.

“I’m just very lucky to work with a very talented actor that we immediately established a rapport, which can be seen on the big screen,” she says.

If Ruffa stars in a movie, her fellow single mom Sunshine Cruz has been making a string of television appearances after a years-long break from showbiz and separation from her husband Cesar Montano. She says she enjoys her newfound independence and is learning a lot from it.

“I learned how to be independent because when I was young, I was so dependent on my mom. And then when he (Cesar) came, I became dependent on him. Now, I have learned how to manage my expenses wisely,” Sunshine shares.

The actress, however, admits that she has not totally moved on from her broken marriage, but that her daughters are inspiring her to stay strong.

“I used to cry all the time, but despite what happened to our family, I still have three beautiful and good daughters who love me a lot,” she says.
