Sharon Cuneta attends first Hollywood movie premiere for Jo Koy’s ‘Easter Sunday’
Sharon Cuneta got to attend her first Hollywood film premiere in Los Angeles, California, where she watched “Easter Sunday” starring Filipino-American comedian Jo Koy.
The Megastar showed herself on the film’s “pink carpet” at TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles, donning a Jot Losa jumpsuit and a vintage 1980s Escada velvet jacket, as seen on her Instagram page yesterday, Aug. 3.
Cuneta’s photos at the movie premiere were taken by photographer Sthanlee Mirador, who also got snaps of Filipino celebrities Vina Morales, Ylona Garcia, Raymond Gutierrez and Mica Javier at the “pink carpet.”
“Artists from the Philippines Mega Star [Sharon Cuneta and] @Vina_Morales along with @Mica, @YlonaGarcia [and Raymond Gutierrez] hit the pink carpet at Jo Koy’s ‘Easter Sunday’ World Premiere in Hollywood,” Mirador stated on his Instagram page yesterday.
Cuneta earlier teased her appearance at the “Easter Sunday” premiere by giving a glimpse of the TCL Chinese Theatre on her Instagram page last Tuesday, Aug. 2.
“Excited to attend my first Hollywood movie premiere at Mann’s Chinese theater tomorrow for Jo Koy’s ‘Easter Sunday’!” she told fans.
“Easter Sunday” is a film about a family coming together on Easter Sunday. It features an all-Filipino cast and is produced by American film producer and director Steven Spielberg.
It stars Koy as the lead character alongside Jimmy O. Yang, Tia Carrere, Brandon Wardell, Eva Noblezada, Lydia Gaston, Asif Ali, Rodney To, Eugene Cordero, Jay Chandrasekhar, Tiffany Haddish and Lou Diamond Phillips.
Back in May last year, Cuneta seemingly hinted at losing a role in “Easter Sunday.” At the time, she revealed that she failed to star in a Hollywood movie produced by Spielberg because of a “false positive” COVID-19 test result.
Cuneta did not identify the film, though she noted that it had an all-Filipino cast. She also said she was supposed to play Koy’s aunt in the film, a role that was eventually given to Carrere. /ra
