Anne Curtis shrugs off ‘lasenggera’ tag-A A +A
Tuesday, August 12, 2014
ANNE Curtis does not mind being labeled "lasenggera" (drinker).
"That's okay. Not an issue for me at all. I had worse!" said the 29-year-old tv host/actress at the grand press launch of her upcoming movie "The Gifted" alongside Cristine Reyes and Sam Milby.
Curtis said she is not hiding anything from the public and everyone knows that she likes to party and hang out with friends.
"I don't deny na I drink naman and minsan nalalaseng talaga. At least I'm honest about it and yung tao hindi nasa-shock kasi alam nila na she's like us, na it happens," she added.
Also, she clarified that she is still with most of her sponsors.
"I'm still with most of my endorsements. I think what helped was I was honest about it. Hindi ako nagtago and I admitted that it was a mistake. It goes to show na tao ako and people could relate. Nangyayari talaga," she added.
Earlier, the "It's Showtime" host became controversial following two separate confrontations between her and some showbiz personalities. She was under the influence of alcohol in both incidents.
Meanwhile, the actress said that she and her boyfriend, food blogger Erwann Heussaff, are "very much together."
She said they just keep their relationship private.
"It will just keep on happening [rumors of break-up] because we are not a showbiz couple. We don't post mushy Instagram pictures, but that's a choice. We choose to keep it private. He'd rather keep ours, ours."
Curtis said they are happy with the relationship but no plans yet of getting married.
"Wag muna! Siguro in mga three or four years, I'll be ready," she added.
When asked if she sees herself settling down with Heussaff, Curtis replied: "Ayoko mag-isip ng ganun kasi paano pag hindi, masakit. I'd rather not have my hopes high. Sana, yun na lang."
Curtis said that she is too young to settle down and start her own family. But she hopes that when the time comes that she will finally become a mother and a wife, she will still get lead roles on television or movies.
"If you're not in showbiz, it's the perfect age [29 years old]. With us kasi, it's different in the industry here. You don't become leading lady material once you're already a wife. It's very rare."
"The Gifted" will grace the big screen starting September 3. (Sunnex)
