While waiting for the taping of her new projects, a movie with the tentative title Maybe This Time and a television series, young actress Anne Curtis is enjoying her break by hosting ABS-CBN's newest morning talent show program called Showtime.
Anne, who starred in the recently concluded primetime series The Wedding, said she made huge adjustments for this new show.
"First time ko na ganito,' said Anne after the PEP's (Philippine Entertainment Portal) set visit last Wednesday, November 4. "Kasi, before nag-Star Circle Summer Kid Quest ako. 'Tapos nag-Q-pids din ako, e, reality show naman 'yon. Ito kasi live, everyday, 'tapos ito talent show. E, di ba ito 'yong uso ngayon sa YouTube na videos? Kaya naloka talaga ako, 'Ay gusto ko 'yan!'"
One major thing she has to do was to change her body clock, since she is used to having long taping schedules for a teleserye.
The 24-year-old actress said, "Nag-adjust talaga ang body ko. Siguro kasi 'yong body ko sanay sa taping na tulog ako ng ganitong oras [morning] kasi natatapos ako sa taping ng 5:00 a.m. na nagpa-pack up. Ito, 8:00 a.m. or 7:00 a.m. talagang kailangan bumabangon na ako bilang galing ako sa Parañaque ako, di ba?
"Nasanay naman na ang body clock ko na medyo maagang nagigising. 'Yong first few days, kahit maaga akong nagigising, late pa rin ako. Hindi ko kaya. Pero ngayon, everyday na akong maagang gising. Kaya ko na matulog ng maaga."
Anne has also set aside her gimmick schedules with friends to be able to sleep early. Instead, she said, "Sabi ko [sa mga kaibigan ko], 'Kung gusto ninyo akong makita, dalawin n'yo na lang ako dito sa bahay. Mag-Rockband na lang tayo dito or mag-movie.' Ayun, game pa ako. Pero ang curfew ko talaga sa self ko, at least by midnight umuuwi na."
She also mentioned how much she liked the show, which was actually a bonus in her contract with ABS-CBN.
"Sobra ko naman siyang nagustuhan," said Anne. "It was a surprise to me kasi originally hindi siya kasama sa contract ko with ABS-CBN. One year contract, teleserye, and ASAP."
Anne hosts the early morning talent show with comedian Vhong Navarro, Matanglawin's Kuya Kim Atienza, Rocksteddy's frontman Teddy Corpuz and Itchyworm's Jugs Jugueta.
From Monday to Saturday, Showtime will showcase the unique talents of Pinoys by featuring performances of different groups who auditioned for the show. Then, it will have guest celebrities who will judge these groups with the show's resident judge stand-up comic Vice Ganda. It also allows audience members in the studio to give their rating for each group and to oust judges, too. (CLICK HERE to read related article)
