Anne Curtis talks to the press for the first time after her surprise engagement last December.
After news broke out about her engagement to longtime boyfriend Erwan Heussaff last December, Anne Curtis said that she knows 2017 will be an even busier year with her career and planning her wedding. "When the engagement happened, in my mind I always thought it’s not going to happen this year maybe it’s going to happen in another year or am I ready in my career and all the things I want to do in my bucket list? But when you actually meet the one, you just know na ito na talaga yun. So there’s going to be a lot of planning, finding a venue, guest list. Basta, I think meron pang pre-nuptials and everything that we have to organize. So it’s really going to be a very busy year but one filled with love pa rin. My birthday wish this year I guess is just to have a smooth sailing year of wedding planning? (laughs),” she shared during her launch as the newest Jollibee endorser held last February 15 in Makati city.
The 31-year-old actress said aside from her newly engaged status, getting another major endorsement was definitely another achievement for her. "It’s just such a blessing talaga. I really feel that 2017 is going to be a year filled with love. I was in discovered in Jollibee 20 years ago so I guess you all know my age now (laughs). But it was really such a dream come true. Imagine if I wasn’t in Jollibee that very day I would’t be here today,” she admitted.
In her newest commercial with the fast food brand, Anne admitted it was a reenactment of sorts of her own engagement. "For those who saw yung totoong engagement video namin, hagulgol ako. Siyempre in the commercial hindi talaga siya hagulgol pero it was very close to what I felt which is pure joy talaga. Pure joy and happiness na tears of joy. I’m so, so happy talaga. It’s really going to be a year of love. I feel it,” she shared.
At this point in the year, Anne said they cannot confirm any definite details yet about their nuptials. "Knowing Erwan and it won’t be anything over the top. It will be very charming. Of course number one priority for Erwan it will have to be good food. Menu wala pa. Pag nag-food tasting,” she said. When asked about her engagement ring, Anne admitted it is special to her. "There’s a meaning behind the ring but I’ll tell that maybe in one of our pre-nuptials the story behind it. Basta. May story yan and I can’t wait to tell all of you how beautiful the love story of Erwan and I,” she added.
In between planning her wedding, Anne says she will still continue her usual schedule in showbiz. "Hindi ako pinayagan unfortunately (sa Boston marathon). Movie na lang muna. We will have a movie and of course Showtime and I’ll still be running another marathon this year so abangan niyo na lang saan. I’d like to thank everyone talaga who has been through this journey with me from being a teenybopper 20 years ago to becoming a leading lady and now I’m going to start my own love story in real life. My forever with the one so thank you so much,” she said.
