Anne Curtis is excited about playing the role of a mistress for the first time


092311-anne_main.jpgAfter doing the romantic comedy Who’s That Girl earlier this year, Anne Curtis returns to the big screen in her most mature role to date as the other woman in the Star Cinema and Viva Films drama No Other Woman. The 26-year-old actress plays the role of Kara Zalderiaga, a beautiful and carefree socialite who is emotionally detached from love. “I play the role of Kara and siya yung other woman. It’s something na hindi pa nila ako nakikitang nag-portray, kasi lagi na lang comedy or rom-com so it’s a breath of fresh air for me so sana magustuhan ninyo yung character ko dito,” Anne shared during the No Other Woman press con held last September 21 at the Dolphy Theater inside ABS-CBN.

Anne said that when she first got offered the role, she had no hesitations whatsoever about playing the anti-heroine in the story for a change. “Kasi I think I’ve always been very open na gusto ko talaga to do something different. Kasi 14 years na ako sa industriyang ito, parang lahat na yata nagawa ko. So ito ang hindi ko pa talaga nagagawa. So I was so excited, from wearing the swimsuits to different outfits to my hair, prinepare ko talaga. At kitang-kita niyo naman yun sa movie. I think people don’t realize that I’m turning 27 next year. They don’t see it kasi napaka-bubbly ko ‘di ba? So people don’t realize that as an actress it’s also my frustration to get roles that help me mature as an actress and I feel that this could be it,” she explained.

Anne admitted that she wants to follow in the footsteps of Hollywood actress Natalie Portman. “Idol ko si Natalie Portman. Ano ba mga tinatanggap na roles ni Natalie Portman ngayon ‘di ba? Yung role niya sa Closer you could see that she really tackles mature roles na hindi mo iisipin kung bagay ba sa kanya yun? Pero ginawa niya at na-achieve. Black Swan also was super duper more mature pero I want that. I want to move forward as an actress,” she said.

For her role in No Other Woman, Anne had some steamy scenes with Derek Ramsay. But this was not something that she had to ask permission for from her very supportive boyfriend Erwan Heussaff. “I didn’t need to ask his permission kasi work ko yun at naiintindihan naman niya yun. The scenes are enough for adults or young adults I’d have to say. It’s nothing too sexy na tipong you’d have to close your eyes. Hindi naman siya ganung leveling. It’s sexy siguro more in a way na may mga naka-swimsuit and stuff like that and also because what we’re tackling is domestic life already, married na kaya naging ganun siya,” she added.

After having just come back from a European vacation with her boyfriend and his family, Anne admitted she really enjoyed the time off from showbiz. “Masaya ako. It was with Erwan and his family. Ang saya. Kahit two weeks and a little bit lang, it was fun to get a rest, I think you need that and I believe in that eh. Yung breaker,” she said.

Anne also admitted that the trip made her relationship with Erwan and his family even closer than before. “Siyempre of course. We all get along and of course friend ko si Solenn. And at least dun I was able to see his Ate that lives abroad,” she added.
