One of the most beautiful women in Philippine showbiz today, Anne Curtis was born Anne Ojales Curtis Smith on February 17, 1985 in Australia. Raised by a Filipina mother and an Australian father, Anne lived in the land down under until her father moved to the Philippines when she was 12. During the early part of her career, Anne appeared in commercials and supporting roles mostly under GMA-7.
She received her first real break when she moved to rival network ABS-CBN, when she was given a role in the TV series Hiram, where she starred with Heart Evangelista. Her role was a deviation from her teeny-bopper image, and this made her ready for primetime. In 2005, she was given her first leading role in TV courtesy of the show Kampanerang Kuba, an adaptation of the Vilma Santos film. Her status in primetime was further solidified when she was cast in the hit series Maging Sino Ka Man, where she starred with Pinoy Big Brother’s Sam Milby.
In 2007, Anne expanded her repertoire and became one of MTV’s VJs on the show Gimme 10. At present, she has a starring role in the fantasy series Dyosa, where she plays a goddess. Her latest movie, Baler, opposite Jericho Rosales, will be shown in December 2008.
Anne Curtis has several endorsements under her name, such as GSM Blue, Smart Communications and Petit Monde.
