MANILA, Philippines -- Is actress Sunshine Cruz finally giving up her marriage with Cesar Montano?

In an interview with columnist Dolly Anne Carvajal that was published in the Philippine Daily Inquirer on Wednesday, Cruz said that after being married to Montano for 13 years, she believes it is time to set her husband free.

"I just realized I did everything for the man I loved for the past 13 years. I fought, lied and cried just to protect the love of my life pero sabi nga nila kung mahal mo ang tao set him free. I'm doing what I think is best. After all, if you feel na hindi na masaya o kontento ang tao sa 'yo, bakit kailangang ipilit," Cruz said.

She also said if her life story were to be made into a movie, it should be titled "I Loved You, Goodbye."

On Monday, Cruz changed her account name on Twitter and Instagram. She is now using the Twitter handle @sunshinecruz77 from the previous @shinemontano.

The actress also said she is ready to return to showbiz and has received several offers.

Last month, Cruz blew her top after discovering that a number of her gifts to Montano are now with starlet Krista Miller, who co-stars with her husband in an upcoming film.

Montano had admitted that he and Cruz are having troubles in their marriage but vowed to do everything in his power to save his family.
