She's been unafraid to open up about her feelings, bare her personal problems, and talk about the death of loved ones on social media. 

But Sharon Cuneta is looking to tread the online waters more carefully from now on, especially after some of her posts were wildly taken out of context. 

In an interview with ANC's "Talkback," the "Unexpectedly Yours" star cited one instance when her post about being sad turned into exaggerated speculations about her having clinical depression. 

"When you say you're sad and you happen to be in showbiz, people will want to turn that into clinical depression, people will want to turn that into being suicidal," she explained. 

But that doesn't mean she'll be cutting down on her Facebook musings anytime soon, or lie to herself with her posts, adding: "I act for a living. I don't want to be acting in real life as well." 

"But now I know that I don't have to point out every single detail of my life behind the cameras." 

Cuneta has been making headlines in recent months because of her cryptic social media posts, one of which led to rumors about her marriage with Senator Francis Pangilinan being on the rocks. 

She has since denied the rumors, but admitted that they don't have a "perfect marriage." 

Cuneta was on "Talkback" to promote "Unexpectedly Yours," her first movie with Robin Padilla in nearly two decades. The movie, which also stars Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia, has now made more than P100 million in less than a week.
