Now that she has been launched as a next year’s calendar girl for a popular liquor brand, actress and entrepreneur Yassi Pressman admitted she is aware that she has big shoes to fill as she succeeds a legacy of popular celebrity ambassadors for Ginebra San Miguel.

“I know Ginebra San Miguel has been here for 188 years, so just being part of a huge legacy is such an honor for me siyempre. Pero hindi lang sa Pilipinas kundi worldwide. I’m excited to go visit yung mga probinsya and seeing people. Kasi when I was younger when I used to model and do a lot of commercials, when I would see my picture posted somewhere, I would be so proud of it. So it just brings back a lot of memories for me and I’m excited to see everybody.

During her launch event, Yassi revealed that she looks up to previous GSM calendar girls like Pia Wurtzbach and Anne Curtis the most.

“I love ate Anne (Curtis) so much. She is a person that has a lot of values aside from talent and aside from beauty. And she’s been here for so long. Ibig sabihin patuloy niya lang ginagalingan at pinupursigi yung trabaho niya. So I really respect people like that,” she said.

Now that she joins the prestigious roster which also includes previous endorsers like Myrtle Sarrosa, Sanya Lopez, and Chie Filomeno, Yassi said she is not one to compare herself with her predecessors.

“I’m really honored. I just never really think of comparison kasi. At the end of the day, I look up to these women. Pero I’m only really in competition with myself. Always. So I just always want to be the best version of me,” she added.

At 27 years old, Yassi already has her hands full doing acting projects, managing her different businesses, and launching her mental health app but that hasn’t stopped her from also being aware of the importance of being and having good role models.

“Yes 100% it’s important. I think without my role models, pero not from showbiz, I wouldn’t be here. So if I’m in a position like this with a platform and to have so many people who are following, parang I’d rather not only share just selfies but also inspirational messages and make them smile or laughs. You know little things, it doesn’t always have to be that deep. Sayang eh, we reach so many people na,” she explained. 

During her calendar shoot, Yassi admitted that despite the sexy poses, she still had some restrictions during the pictorial.

“There were some. There always comes with some restrictions to be honest. Pero at the end of the day, the brand respects me and I respect the brand and kapag ganun yung communication nagiging maayos naman. I stand by the things that I stand by, the values and there are always going to be limitations working with me pero all of this can be talked about naman. Malinaw naman ako from the very beginning so walang gulatan,” she admitted. 

As an endorser of alcoholic drinks, Yassi also stressed the importance of everyone to drink only within your limits.

“I guess you just have to drink responsibly di ba? Don’t overdrink, lalong lalo na yung mga mag-da-drive, don’t do that. Make sure na meron kayong kasama to make sure na safe kayo kasi yun yung pinaka-importante. Lalo na ngayon bumalik na yung mga social events so just don’t overdo it. Drink responsibly,” she said.

Yassi also recalled the first time she ever got drunk and why she couldn’t forget the experience. “I think yung first time hindi pa ako sanay so nagulat ako tapos alam ko na rin yung effects when you overdo it. Ayokong mag-overdo (laughs).”
