Beautiful actresses Anne Curtis and Heart Evangelista have one thing in common nowadays.
And that is they are both not ready to settle down yet as they aspire to accomplish more in their careers in showbusiness.
The two stars revealed their decisions in separate interviews over the weekend.
Anne, who is co-host in ABS-CBN’s noontime show “It’s Showtime,” and Heart have their own boyfriends and they are happy with their relationships.
Anne has Erwan Heusaff while Heart has Brazilian-Japanese Daniel Matsunaga.
Anne said there is no wedding talks yet with her boyfriend, saying she’s not yet ready to settle down because there are still a lot of things to achieve in her showbiz career.
Anne has been in the industry for 15 years now starting as a bit player until she eventually emerged as one of the hottest names in showbiz.
The actress said her boyfriend Erwann himself also hase many things to accomplish individually.
“I took everything slowly and finally they are all falling into place, bakit mo itatangi ang mga blessings na dumadating sa iyo,” Anne said.
Anne stressed: “Walang plano, ayoko ngang planuhin yun eh. But you know if it’s the right time, it’s the right person and I know that I’m ready and responsible enough to handle that, why not. Right now I’m happy with how things are going”.
Aside from hit television programs, sold-out concerts, numerous endorsements, Anne also topped the movie chart last year when “No Other Woman” earned more than P280 million in the box-office.
“Happy ako sa lahat ng blessings na dumarating. Five years ago these are the things I would be praying about and now they are here. I am really grateful,” she said.
Anne wishes a healthy and successful showbiz career for her and more projects in the years to come.
“2011 was an amazing year for me, 2012 is looking great,” she added.
Heart, on the other hand, said she is not settling down anytime soon as she is concentrating on her showbiz career.
“I don’t want to get married anytime soon. Hindi pa ako finish (sa mga gusto ko). Sa isang relationship, it has to come a point na there’s nothing basic to argue about, with my career eh marami pa, medyo alanganin pa talaga ako (I am not finish yet (with the things that I like). In a relationship, it has come to a point that there’s nothing basic to argue about, with my career there’s still a lot more, I am not just ready yet),” Heart told Sun.Star in an interview.
Heart told Glaiza Jarloc that she never set a marrying age for herself and she knows that boyfriend Daniel Matsunaga will not pop the question anytime soon.
The actress said she aims to purchase a lot and built her own house. She said having her own property makes her feel independent.
“Buying a house, I feel independent. It doesn’t matter kung sinong mapangasawa ko kasi meron din ako. I worked hard for what I have, ayoko yung nakikihingi,” she said.
Heart said that all is well between her and Daniel. They both understand each other’s situation and are always ready for each other.
She added that they are not affected by constant reports that the relationship is on the rocks because their partnership is very strong.
“Hindi naman perfect yung isang relationship. Hindi ko din alam kung mag-eend ba ito or magla-last ba ito. So, hindi ako masyadong nagpapa-apekto (Relationships are not perfect. I don’t know it will end or if will last. I don’t want to be affected),” Heart said.
“Nandun din ako sa situation na wala ng masyadong expectations, kasi hindi rin naman birong maghanap ng lifetime partner eh, so there’s really no assurances in life, no demands. Kung mag work, finally. Pero kung hindi eh I wish you all the best.”
Daniel is in Brazil with his family and is expected to be back by second week of April. Heart said even though they haven’t seen each other in person for almost a month now, the communication is always there and Skype helped a lot.
When asked if her parents’ approval with her relationship with Daniel, the Kapuso star said her parents will always have something to say with her choices, but she’s old enough to know what is right or wrong for her.
