This month, the 'unbreakable' Anne Curtis—sporting an edgy pixie cut, no less—is the star of our sister site, Preview.ph's first digital-only cover. It's a fitting reminder that as we say goodbye to the glossy fashion spreads that grace our newsstands monthly, Preview, just like Anne, will thrive on any platform.
In their cover story this June, Anne gets candid about her career, married life, and what motivates her to keep pushing boundaries. Here are a few things we learned:
Anne is the woman with the most number of Preview covers ever.
Her first was shot back in 2004. “I remember that was shot on location with Vince and Liz (Uy)—it didn’t feel like work at all. Vince and Liz were both also just starting, Liz had just started styling.”
Despite his regular blogs on food and fitness, Erwan remains to be "a very private person."
Unlike his family members Solenn and Nico who regularly post and openly talk about their relationship, Erwan likes to keep his married life with Anne more low-key. But that doesn't mean that they treat each other all that different behind closed doors. "Of course, if you look at Erwan and I, we’re very private, but we’ll share every now and then. But it’s really what you see is what you get,” says Anne.
“I respect Erwan’s decision [to keep things private], and those are the adjustments you have to make when you get married to someone who’s a very private person.”
Anne and Erwan may be complete opposites, but they still have a lot of similarities.
"I think that’s why we complement each other,” reveals the Sid and Aya (Not a Love Story) actress. Okay, so this isn't entirely surprising to many, especially if you're a fan of their travel and adventure videos, but it does go to show that aside from their similar tastes in food and music, it's really their affection for each other that makes them #relationshipgoals, despite the fact that we rarely see much of their personal interactions anywhere else.
And as to how married life has shaped their relationship? “Of course, you have to think about someone else now in every decision that you make, but it didn’t change a lot—if anything, we’re just extra happy.”
Unlike other big celebs, Anne's entourage is quite small, and flexible.
"I'm very grateful to be with a management team [that allows me] to be who I am and have no restrictions. Because of the management team not being so strict, it may not have been the smoothest of journeys throughout my career, but it’s molded me to be who I am today.”
