Yasmien Kurdi admits that she was bullied by Paolo Contis during her early years in showbiz
At the press conference for I Can See You: The Promise, actress Yasmien Kurdi admitted that Paolo Contis bullied her during her early years in showbiz.
Yasmien recounted her early years wherein her male co-stars used to tease her on set. Paolo was one of the boys who used to bully her.
“Pag sumakop si Nanay Lolit wala na talaga bully na bully na talaga ako. Lahat naman yata ng alaga ni Nanay na lalaki binully ako,” said Yasmien.
Paolo, on the other hand, acknowledged Yasmien as an actress but admitted that it will not stop him from bullying Yasmien.
“Naniniwala ako na si Yas is a very good actress. Magaling sya but it will not stop me from bullying her anytime soon,” Paolo admitted.
Their banter continued with Paolo acknowledging Yasmien’s growth and lauding her for one of their scenes.
“Bilang artista malaki na yung ikinamature nya. When you see her act especially with this one scene na ginawa namin, ang galing,” said Paolo.
“Wow naman Kuya Pao ganda naman ng sinabi mo,” Yasmien replied.
“Sige na siraan mo na ko,” Paolo interjected.
Then, Yasmien recalled her early days as a fan of Paolo to which Paolo jokingly replied that she shouldn’t list all of his old projects.
“Its an honor na napapanood ko pa sya nung Tabing Ilog pa alam mo yun, fan ako ni kuya Pao actually. Na Okidokidok days yung mga ganon,” said Yasmien
“Wag mo na isa-isahin yung mga lumang show ko. Lumalabas yung edad eh,” Paolo replied.
Paolo and Yasmien used to work together in the GMA Network TV show Yagit. Now, they are together again for the one-week anthology series I Can See You: The Promise. It also includes Benjamin Alves, and Andrea Torres and will air starting October 5.
