'Showtime' host Anne Curtis Says she's teaching younger sister Jasmine how to deal with showbiz rumors.
When a very detailed rumor surfaced that Luis Manzano and Jasmine Curtis had been seen locking lips, Jasmine'rsquo;s older sister Anne Curtis quickly showed her disgust about the report. The idea that Luis, Anne'rsquo;s best friend for over a decade and Jasmine, who is just starting out in showbiz, were seeing each other was simply preposterous according to the Showtime host. "I just think that it'rsquo;s a disgusting and revolting issue and it'rsquo;s something that should not be brought up. I think Jasmine said her part, Manzano said his part and I said my part. It'rsquo;s incest, incest na talaga. I mean, she'rsquo;s 16!" Anne stressed during the presscon for her new romantic comedy film Who'rsquo;s That Girl which also stars Luis Manzano.
The 25-year-old mestiza said she has no idea how the rumor started, but she is very confident there was a lot of malicious intent behind it since the culprit has remained anonymous ever since the news broke out and was picked up by the media. "Ewan ko sino nagsimula nun, isang malisyosong walang magawa," she said. Anne added that she would not approve if ever Luis did plan on courting her sister. "Subukan niya," she joked.
Having been in the industry since she was 10 years old, Anne is used to dealing with various intrigues from relationship issues to a supposed photo scandal a few years back. Now, the Who'rsquo;s That Girl actress has learned to roll with the punches and has become more private with her personal affairs. This aspect of showbiz is also what she is currently teaching Jasmine about. "Actually, it'rsquo;s something that my dad taught us and I'rsquo;m passing it on to Jasmine na whoever this is, that'rsquo;s what we call the gutter press. They don'rsquo;t get their facts right first. I also told Jasmine welcome to show business. I said to her, you just had your first taste of a negative issue. I said that'rsquo;s the way it is," she shared.
Anne is also thankful that her sister has not been changed by these recent events. "You really can'rsquo;t please everyone. Pero wala, she still has a pure heart. Kahit anong ibato sa kanya, ganun lang yung nasasagot bagets, 'lsquo;hindi po.'rsquo; Inosente pa rin, alam niyo yun?" she shared.
With numerous endorsements and the March 9 release of their film, Anne said she and Luis have no reason to feel awkward with regards to the rumor. Anne said she will always trust Luis, who she considers one of her best friends. Anne only hopes she can be there to protect her sister from false rumors that aim to malign. "Actually hina-hunting ni Manzano yung nagsabi nun. Wala talagang magawa, siguro mas madali pa para sa akin kung ako yung na-tsismis at si Manzano pero yung bagets, parang it'rsquo;s just really off. It'rsquo;s just really disgusting," she said.
