Jasmine arrives with only a little makeup on her face. "I prefer to have minimal makeup because my skin complexion is pretty okay. I don’t need to apply a lot of foundation. It would just make my skin breakout. I want to maintain that youthful glow—and as much as possible I want to stick to mineral makeup," the young actress explains.

Jasmine Curtis-Smith’s default answer about the status of her relationship with Sam Concepcion has always been “Ask Sam.”
But the guessing game continues as Sam himself gives vague answers to the same question.

What’s holding her back from putting a label into their “thing”?

The OMG! Breakthrough Actress of the Year nominee said, “We're not putting labels or hiding anything from anyone. It's really whatever's there, whatever people see.”

She added that any announcement should come from the guy, not from her.

But Jasmine is sure about one thing.

“Masaya kami. As individuals, I’m very happy with everything that’s going on with my life… work, everything. I’m happy for him because he has a new album.”
From Melbourne to Manila to Jerusalem
Seems Jasmine made the right choice by living in Manila permanently after studying in Melbourne.

Anne Curtis’ younger sister is slated to do two independent movies—“Puti,” an official entry to Cine Filipino Film Festival and “Transit,” one of the new breed entries in this year’s Cinemalaya.
According to Jasmine, “Transit’s” 10-day shoot in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem went smoothly, except for one setback: language. 
The Kapatid star had to deliver long lines in Hebrew.

“Marami siyang [Hebrew language] phlegm sound. It's difficult to acquire. Pareho kami ni Marc (Justine Alvarez), the little boy in the movie, na nahihirapan sa phlegm sound kasi wala siya sa Tagalog and wala rin naman sa Australian slang.”
Thanks to technology and their translator, Jasmine hurdled the challenge in her first full-length movie.

“Nag-tutor kami over Skype from someone who's friends with one of the production team. Konting natulungan kami pero iba pa rin nung nandun na kami na na-expose na kami sa culture.”
Jasmine plays Yael, a young Filipina living with her mother Janet (Irma Adlawan) in Israel. Their peaceful life is disrupted when the Israeli government started deporting children of foreign workers.
