Anne Curtis' 13th year in showbiz seems to be quite a lucky year for her. In Your Eyes, her movie with ex-boyfriend Richard Gutierrez and Claudine Barretto premieres August 15; the hit reality talent search Showtime she co-hosts is now on its second season; and she is taping for an upcoming Koreanovela remake, Green Rose, with Jericho Rosales and Jake Cuenca.

Luck, though, hasn't always been on her side. She recalls a time when projects were scarce and she contemplated leaving it all to finish her studies in Australia, her homeland. But after accepting her first kontrabida role in hit teleserye Hiram in 2004 and transferring from GMA to ABS-CBN, she has been continuously in the limelight in various reincarnations. From playing a princess at 12 years old in her first big break Magic Kingdom, she went on to portray, among others, a goddess (Dyosa), a hunchbacked bell ringer (Kampanerang Kuba), and a Filipina who falls for the enemy during the Spanish occupation (Baler, for which she won Best Actress in the 2008 Metro Manila Film Festival).

At the press conference launching Anne's latest endorsement, Whisper Cottony Clean, she revealed to the media her singing frustrations, her bugoy side in Showtime and her policy on mixing love and showbiz.

What's new in Showtime's second season?

Siguro hindi sa akin but more on the contestants. Ang daming magagaling na naman, ang daming makukulit. But I have to say, 'yong batuhan naming mga hosts, 'yon talaga eh. I think that's the charm and magic behind Showtime. Kasi andun talaga 'yong bond at kakulitan na kahit 10:30 na ng umaga kami pumapasok, hindi ko nararamdaman na napuyat ako from taping. 'Yong mga feedback from Twitter, lahat talaga super tweet sila na nakakatuwa 'yong show, lalala

The public sees a different Anne Curtis in Showtime compared to, say, ASAP.

'Yon nga 'yong pinag-usapan namin ni Direk na parang on ASAP you see [me with the] "It Girls" na pa-sosyal, fashionista. But I'm really bugoy and nalalabas 'yon sa Showtime. That's why it's effortless. Fun lang, walang script-script. Kulitan lang Kahit puyat ako from Green Rose taping, diretso Showtime, walang pagod.

Vhong Navarro and Anne Curtis in Showtime.

Is it true that you're uncomfortable with Showtime co-host Vhong Navarro's teasing?

Hindi ako naiilang, sanay na nga ako sa kanya eh. Siguro nung una, pero ngayon hindi na. Nakakatawa na lang.

Showtime judge Vice Ganda said he's leaving the show for a while.

Sabi niya pero hindi pa siya umaalis. I understand Vice; minsan nakakapagod talaga lalo na 'yong pa-sample every day for nine months. I think what brings him back is the love for the madlang people and for the contestants.

Vice Ganda gives in to the crowd's "pa-sample" demand.

Rumor has it that his talent fee has increased.

Hindi, hindi naman gano'n.

Your contract with ABS-CBN is about to expire. There are speculations that you might transfer to another network or demand a larger talent fee.

Ano ba 'yon, nakakatawa naman 'yong issue na 'yan. It's actually the first time I heard about it Ang taray naman nun! I'm not really in [this business] for the money. It's more for the passion. I just discovered hosting and andun 'yong passion talaga.
