Anne Curtis didn’t deny that she feels a little nervous about the feedback of A Secret Affair once it hits the theaters on October 24. But she takes courage from Viva Films bigwig Vic del Rosario who tells her not to worry too much about it becoming a blockbuster. “Of course you want it to become a blockbuster but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the reason why you want to do the film. Like No Other Woman, no one expected it to be like that. I set my mind naman din na basta may manood at magustuhan ng tao masaya na ako. The only thing that frustrates me the most is that people compare. But when they finally see the movie, they’ll realize that it’s really different from No Other Woman,” she told Push.com.ph.
Hailed as a certified Box Office Queen for her mistress role in No Other Woman last year, Anne takes on the challenge of being a good girl this time around. “It took a lot of adjusting on my part. Binabantayan ni Direk Nuel Naval yung little nuances ko—a slight raise of my eyebrows talagang, ‘Oops, hindi mo character ‘yan.’ Mahirap siya pero I enjoy taking on the challenge of portraying a good girl.”
Aside from her steamy love scenes with Derek Ramsay, Anne is also proud of her confrontation scenes with Andi Eigenmann. “Pinakagrabeng love scene namin ni Derek yung sa sauna. Kasi yung sa kanila ni Andi hot and steamy, sa amin talaga lovemaking. Tsaka abangan ninyo yung pasabog na eksena namin ni Andi. Maloloka kayo. Iba kasi ito e. Sa No Other Woman nagustuhan yung batuhan ng lines na matindi talaga. Eto kasi isang linya pero iba rin yung impact. Parang, ‘Awww! Ano daw?’”
Anne is also vocal about Andi being a revelation in this movie. “She’s a gem. She will shine in this movie. I am so happy na ginawa niya. Mahusay siyang artista. Magle-level up siya dito. Ang ganda niya, ang galing niya umarte. In this movie she will become a woman.”
The pretty actress-host further shared that she doesn’t mind if Andi becomes the major scene-stealer in A Secret Affair. “Oo naman. I am very open. Kaya nga I told Andi, ‘Girl, you will shine in this movie’. Nagaalangan siya kasi nung una e. Sabi ko nga sa kanya, ‘Girl believe me, the bad girl is always the better role to portray.’ Sabi niya, ‘Really?’ So nung pinapanood ko yung rushes, kaya naman niya e. Hindi naman paghuhubad e. Hindi siya naghubad dito. Pero yung pamaldi-maldi… When you see the movie, it’s different.”
