Anne Curtis took It's Showtime's 10th anniversary press conference as a chance to tell the press to stop asking women about marriage and pregnancy plans, "because you don't know what they're going through."

"I hope you guys don't take this the wrong way," she said, "but I think in respect to every woman, you should stop asking when they're going to get married, why don't they have a baby, or when they are going to have a baby."


During a recent interview, Barbie Forteza was asked about her take on Anne's statement. The actress noted that while celebrities are often friends with the showbiz press, there are still limitations to what questions should be asked.

"Sa akin personally, hindi ko rin gets kung bakit kailangang tanungin. I mean kung may plans, malalaman at malalaman niyo din naman po 'yon, kung mabubuntis, malalaman at malalaman niyo din naman po 'yon. No need to ask."

Barbie is currently in a relationship with actor Jak Roberto.
