Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 8) -- Actress Jasmine Curtis-Smith on Thursday shared that she seeks the advice of her older sister Anne when dealing with scandals or issues.

“I always ask advice from the people around me. For one, especially my sister who has experienced her own fair share (of issues),” she said in an interview with CNN Philippines' News Night.

The 27-year-old actress said her sister has “her own learnings” that she could also apply to her situation.

“She has her own learnings and she has her own advice that she can give to me that I can apply to my own career,” she said. “So that I don’t make mistakes that she feels that she could have avoided had she had the right mentors in her life at that time.”

Moreover, Curtis-Smith also shared that she learned how to speak at the right time whenever she faces an issue.

“Definitely knowing when it's the right time to speak up or say anything about an issue or a scandal that you are involved in,” she said.

Curtis-Smith stars in the upcoming dark comedy film “General Admission,” which tackles the media portrayal of scandals. She said it was the script that got her interested and made her accept the project.

“The script was so well-written, 'yung humor (the humor), the way it was used, it was just the right mix. It was dark in the right scenes where you felt like it needed to be dark, because that is the reality of what goes on, not just backstage anymore, but on stage nowadays, on everyone’s personal platforms,” said Curtis-Smith.

“General Admission” will be digitally streamed worldwide on April 9.
