Anne Curtis says Luis Manzano is like a brother to her younger sister Jasmine.
Recently, there have been rumors that Anne Curtis'rsquo;s younger sister Jasmine was supposedly seen kissing Anne Who'rsquo;s That Girl co-star Luis Manzano. "I think that'rsquo;s disgusting. It'rsquo;s basically incest," replied Anne at the press conference of her launch as the new face of SM Residences of SM Development Corporation last January 28. "Jasmine is 16 [years old] and Manzano (her nickname for Luis) is [ma]tanda na. So you know, it'rsquo;s far from happening and especially Kuya Manzano ang tawag n'rsquo;ya so kaloka 'lsquo;yung mga tao [na gumagawa ng tsismis]." Anne said that the rumor might have come from when Luis drove Jasmine home and they exchanged hugs when they said their goodbyes.
Though Anne was once romantically linked to Luis, the two remain the best of friends. Luis is currently single while the actress is now happily committed to non-showbiz boyfriend Erwann Heussaff.
Anne added that she is not worried that her closeness with Luis might affect her current romantic relationship. In his interviews, Luis always expresses his love for Anne and even calls her his soul mate. "Manzano will always be my best friend and everyone is aware of that. Anyone that comes in my life or I have a relationship [with], they know of my friendship of Manzano and they respect that."
Anne related that Luis is in no rush to be committed even if he has been loveless for two years after his breakup with Angel Locsin. "Manzano is at the point of his life [in which] sooner or later he'rsquo;s going to settle down. So now he'rsquo;s kind of enjoying [his life]," explained Anne.
The Showtime host also denied rumors that Luis supposedly gave her an expensive watch as a Christmas present. "Kuripot si Luis," she said. "Kami ni Manzano we always have a deal kung ano ang ibibigay namin sa isa'rsquo;t-isa and this year, hindi pa kami nagbibigayan kasi wala pa kaming agreement kung anong ibibigay niya sa akin at ibibigay ko sa kanya."
Meantime, Anne said that she also wishes ex-boyfriend Sam Milby well, following reports that the actor is allegedly courting radio jock Andi Manzano. Anne said that she is currently happy with her life and it will make her happy also if Sam finally gets into a relationship. "Sam and I are very much friends. There'rsquo;s no bad blood between the two of us. We still get along, so walang issue. If he happens to be courting someone, I'rsquo;d be happy for him."
