Cristine Reyes says she is not trying to surpass older sister Ara Mina's achievements


120411-cristine_main.jpgAfter the success of her recent movie No Other Woman, Cristine Reyes admitted she not only received a hefty bonus from Star Cinema but also a talent fee increase with ABS-CBN as well. But the 22-year-old actress said this does not mean she has more savings then her older sister Ara Mina. “Si Ate naman po madami na siyang na-invest so ako iilan pa lang yung ininvest ko so ako nagsa-start pa lang. Nag-iipon pa ako. Hindi ko pa masabi. Hindi ko alam ang bank account ni Ate,” she shared.

The pretty mestiza said she never dreamed of surpassing her sister in terms of having a showbiz career. “Hindi kasi hindi ko iniisip yun. Hindi ko inisip na malagpasan si Ate kasi siyempre pag kapatid mo naman hindi mo naman gusto na i-kumpetensya, dapat masaya kayo pareho sa isa’t isa,” she stressed.

Cristine also shrugged off reports that the success of both No Other Woman and Reputasyon has gone to her head. “Yumabang ba ako? Yung yabang kasi matagal ng meron sa akin yun. Oo, mayabang talaga ako, hindi lang halata (laughs). Para sa akin, yung alam ko na kumita yung movie, well nagsi-sink in na siya akin ngayon pero wala namang nagbago talaga sa akin, ganun pa rin,” she said.

Cristine also shared that she was initially gunning for Anne Curtis’s role as the third party because she liked the thought of playing a challenging and complex role. “Matagal na kasi yung project. So ako daw dapat yung kay Anne pero hindi ko alam kung anong nangyari pero ang gusto ko siguro pang gampanan na role, gusto ko talaga ng mga matitinding roles. Ayoko yung mga pa-cute kasi hindi ko naman nalalabas dun yung talent, yung acting ‘di ba? Gusto ko yung palaban, yung mapapasabak talaga ako sa acting-an. Ganun yung gusto ko o kaya naman gusto ko rin mag-comedy, ganun,” she revealed.

The Reputasyon star said she is now ready to leave behind her past rebellious image in the coming year. “Ayun na-control ko na. Feeling ko kasi natuto ako, kumbaga sa mga experiences, yung impact mo sa ibang tao, ah ganun pala pag ganyan, so kailangan baguhin ko. Medyo impulsive pa rin ako pero unti-unting nababago,” she admitted. Cristine said this is also the reason why she is not as active on her Twitter account anymore.

Siguro may ugali kasi akong impulsive so minsan nadadala ko yun sa tao tapos ngayon nalalaman ng tao through Twitter. So ngayon dahil natututo na ako, di na ako nagti-Twitter para hindi na issue ‘di ba? Ano lang yun, dala lang yun ng emotions ko kaya ko lang yun nasabi kasi bata pa ako gusto ko na talaga mag-artista, gusto ko na umarte. Susto kong ipakita sa tao yung talent ko. Sa ngayon hindi pa naman nagbabago yun eh,” she explained.

Next year, Cristine hopes to move on from doing sexy roles to more complex ones which will allow here to showcase her acting talent. “Tapos na ako dun eh. Parang next level naman ngayon, actingan naman. Marami pa akong gustong gawin kaya hungry pa ako sa projects na talagang mapapakita ko yung skills ko,” she said.
