Jasmine has no time for love

According to Jasmine Curtis Smith, after her failed romance with Sam Concepcion, she doesn’t have time for love at this point in time.

“That’s true!” she avers. “Looking at my schedule now, it’s impossible to squeeze that in. In the remaining part of 2015, my workload is full. But if say, it’s there, then it’s there. It’s just that it’s not something I’d like to pursue or jump into.”

Is this her personal choice?

“Honestly, it’s not, but it is just it is. For now, I guess yes. I don’t really look for a love life anyway. The next three months would be very hectic for me. I don’t think I can still afford to put effort into someone else. Rather, I would like to focus on my work and all my commitments.”

Some kibitzers say that considering her busy showbiz career, she needs an inspiration to keep her going. How’s this when she doesn’t have a special someone now?

“Well...I think there’s not much difference since I find inspiration in everything, in everyone. The only difference when you have a steady, you have a romantic angle in terms of inspiration. Apart from that, everything’s the same. As I’ve said earlier, in whatever I’m doing, I find inspiration in it,” states Jasmine.

The pretty lass stresses though that this doesn’t mean she’s not open on having a boyfriend.

“I didn’t say that I’m not ready to have a new BF. Everyone has a chance with everyone. It’s just that it depends on your priorities and what you’re focusing on right now...where you want to concentrate and put your time and effort into.”

Talks are rife that Brian Poe Llamanzares is allegedly smitten by her and has plans of courting her in the coming days.

“Honestly, I don’t know about that. As I’ve mentioned, I’m okay at the moment. My hands are full. My work is my priority. As for admirers, let’s see the developments in the coming days.”

Speaking of work, the TV 5 princess is excited with her latest drama series titled Resureksyon.

“It’s simply interesting since for the first time, I’m playing a character who will eventually turn into a vampire. It’s a fresh take on the horror genre so I hope viewers will support it,” ends Jasmine.


Katrina Halili is back in a villain role in her latest soap opera for GMA titled Destiny Rose.

“Yes! But there’s a twist. This time around, the subject of my oppression is a male played by Ken Chan. Although he plays a transsexual here, still he’s a man. I’m happy because I won’t have any apprehension in getting a bit physical in our scenes together, like slapping or pulling hair. With female stars, I find it hard because they might get hurt so most of the times, we fake the scenes,” she says.

With Ken, Kat is free to do what she wants to make the scenes realistic.

“I slap him, I kick him, name it. And the good thing is, his character, being basically kind, doesn’t retaliate. So I really play it to the hilt. I’m happy that so far, the scenes come out very natural.”

Katrina has only good words for Ken.

“He deserves this big break. When dressed in women’s clothes, he really fits the role to a T! He looks feminine. And he delivers, acting-wise. In fact, before the take, I always ask his permission that I’ll be a little physical on him and it’s just fine with him because he also wants the scenes to come out as realistic as possible. He seeks our advice as well in his attack of the role and so far, he’s doing very well,” she states.
