Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 29) — Actress and singer Sharon Cuneta is treading more carefully on social media.

Speaking to CNN Philippines' The Source in an episode that aired Wednesday, she said she has learned to hold back on her online platforms.

"Now, parang if it works against you, parang no na lang. I can set an example in another way. But you know I'm also human, I make mistakes," Cuneta said.

"It wasn't nice to be very open about my personal life and I did go through a lot of, it was like a roller coaster ride for a while," she added.

The "Megastar" was the talk of social media earlier this year when netizens speculated marital trouble between her and husband Senator Kiko Pangilinan. The buzz was prompted by Cuneta's cryptic posts on Facebook.

However, she assured viewers that she and Pangilinan are now "fine."

Cuneta said although she initially liked sharing her feelings with the public, she had to remind herself that social media was "not [her] journal."

"This is not my journal, people all over the world will get to read this. So I've refrained from posting stuff like that," Cuneta shared.

"I wanted people to know I was also human, that was a big part of it. And then I figured, everyone is gonna have an opinion about you," she added.

The singer, who is a coach on The Voice Philippines, is returning to the big screen in Cathy Garcia Molina's romantic comedy Unexpectedly Yours. She stars as a separated mom opposite Robin Padilla, whom she called her "favorite leading man."

"Now I'm championing the women of my age... Love doesn't have to stop in your 20's or 30's. You can fall in love at 80 or something. So here in your 50's, we showed that. [It's the] same for men," said Cuneta.

"Of course we've changed because we've matured, we've aged together... So it's a totally different thing for us. But we enjoyed immensely," she added of working with Padilla.

She also said she didn't mind having an on-screen comeback with former co-actor Aga Muhlach.

When asked if she was open to collaborating with ex-husband Gabby Concepcion, she laughed it off.

"If a movie's just gonna give me stress from other people, not necessarily from someone I'm working with, but people who create intrigue and just stress me out, I would rather just do another one," she said.

Cuneta plugged in screening dates for "Unexpectedly Yours," which also stars love team Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia. The movie will also debut in December in Australia, Austria, Italy, New Zealand, Malta, the Middle East, Greece, Spain, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
