Now that she’s 21, Jasmine Curtis-Smith has taken it upon herself to try new things.
What came on top of the list was dabbling into theater as part of Sandbox Collective’s monologue series titled NO FILTER: Let’s talk about ME.
“Kasi siyempre you know we kind of have to find different avenues to let out our creative juices,” Jasmine said in an interview during the show’s press conference.
The young host-actress also claimed that her decision to join the theater scene stems from her desire to “explore the world of acting.”
“If you really love your craft, you won’t limit yourself to just the small screen or the big screen. Minsan masarap rin talaga ma-experience ‘yung onstage and just one take and that’s it. The hard work and the time that you put into creating the characters, it’s very different so it’s good to experience that,” she said.
The monologue series tagged as “by millennials, for millennials, about millennials” also stars Saab Magalona-Bacarro, Lauren Young, Cai Cortez, Micah Muñoz, Mikael Daez, Khalil Kaimo, and Sarah Facuri. It will run from July 25 to August 1 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium at the RCBC Plaza.
Jasmine’s decision to learn new things pretty much resonates with that of her sister Anne Curtis latest adventures which the latter called as Anne’s Journey to 30. The It’s Showtime host has taken her recent travels and other exploits under that said category.
The younger Curtis couldn’t be any happier about Anne’s decision saying that, “I think it’s great.”
She added, “Actually noong time na lumabas siya with Anne’s Journey to 30 nagulat kami kasi January palang pinaguusapan ko na pati ng manager ko ‘yung journey ko naman. January palang pinagusapan na namin siya na ‘By April ganito dapat tayo, ganito dapat magawa natin and ito dapat ang itsura natin. This is how people should see us.’ Tapos biglang dating ng Feb, ‘Uy Anne’s Journey to 30!’”
Although they had roughly the same idea, Jasmine doesn’t feel any competition between them. For her it was awesome because “we’re both working towards goals and dreams and to become better.”
If anything she feels that “Maganda kasi may kasama ka. It’s not like ‘Ano ba ‘yan gaya gaya.’ Walang ganunan samin ni Ate. Ano lang hilaan lang pataas.”
With so many stars walking the aisle recently and getting pregnant, Anne, who’s been in a longtime relationship with French model-chef Erwan Heussaff, has been prodded as to when she would follow suit.
To this Jasmine said, “I don’t know how to answer it eh. She’s not in a rush because we both know that in God’s perfect time it will happen.”
Without wanting “to cover it up with religion,” Jasmine stressed that her Ate is not frustrated about the fact that she’s not yet married even if she’s already 30.
“Hindi siya ‘yung parang ‘napagiiwanan ako’ hindi siya ganon. Ano siya okay lang siya steady lang siya and I think there’s a mutual understanding between her and Erwan naman kung kelan ‘yun mangyayari, ‘di ba?” she ended.
