Fresh from a vacation in Europe, Jasmine Curtis said she is looking forward to working again. "Masaya, Siyempre masaya kasi I always look forward to holidays after doing a project kasi siyempre ilang araw ka ding puyat, minsan buwan buwan. So I was very happy I was able to have almost two weeks vacation. Work and play siya so kahit papaano it was a very productive vacation pa rin,” she shares during the Live the Nova Life event held last June 23 at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati city.
The 22-year-old actress said she might be playing the daughter of the Star for all Seasons Vilma Santos in her biggest movie role to date. "I have a project with Ms. Vilma Santos so that’s big. It’s with direk Quark Henares. I’m not sure when we’ll start but so far kami pa lang yung dalawang confirmed na cast or at least yung alam kong cast members. So I’m very thrilled and just overwhelmed na ang lalaki ng mga nakakasama ko sa mga projects ko so I’m thankful. Wala pang (title) eh but I think I might be her daughter in the project. Bongga (laughs),” she admitted.
Even when it comes to her personal life, Jasmine said her relationship with her boyfriend Jeff Ortega is going smoothly. "Masaya! Kita niyo naman yung mga pictures di ba? We’re very open of course with what we can sure. Like always, with me naman regardless of kung sino man ang kasama ko or involved sa life ko, I’m very open about it to the public and I keep na lang what I want for myself to myself but of course ayoko namang ire-restrict na siyempre. I kind of have to share also bits and pieces of my life because that’s my work. My fans, that’s how they want to support me. They like to see me enjoying different things so I need to feed them that din so that they get excited, they look forward to my projects. So yeah I’m very open naman with my relationship, my love life (laughs). I’m just happy about life in general,” she explained.
The new Nova celebrity ambassador also said dating a non-showbiz guy is not that difficult since he is mature enough to understand her line of work. "Siyempre I sometimes I have to tell him na baka minsan you’ll get tweets na ganito, alam mo naman. Sinabihan ko na yung mga (social media) accounts mo you need to make sure na everything that’s on that okay lang na ma-discover ng public kasi sabi ko siyempre though we live our personal lives, the public wants to know more all the time so hindi sila titigil. They’ll always want to know more and they’ll scavenge for it. So sabi ko maganda profile mo okay ba yan na makita nila lahat ng laman niyan? Sabi niya, ‘Ah ganun pala yun?’ He’s learning. He’s very curious din naman about the industry so I help him out with it. But so far so good. I think maybe because he’s from a political family medyo may konting grasp na rin siya on it,” she said.
Even before she met her boyfriend, Jasmine said he was already friends with her older sister Anne and Anne’s boyfriend Erwann Heusaff which is why they sometimes go out together. "I think Erwann and him go way, way even back friends na sila. That’s why it’s easy to get along. But at the same time siyempre ang Ate of course she’s still very protective, she’s still watches out for me like, ‘O anong balita diyan? Kamusta ka na diyan?’ But in a manner na she wants to hear that I’m happy. Of course hindi rin maiiwasan sometimes manghihingi ako ng advice but so far lahat naman is all for the better of everything in my life,” she shared.
