MANILA - Members of the entertainment press asked a number of daring questions to actress Anne Curtis, who was launched Thursday as the lead star of the remake of the mermaid series "Dyesebel."

Curtis recently took a short break following her controversial slapping incident at a bar in Taguig last last year.

Here are some of the questions that Curtis politely answered:

Wala ka bang idea na ikaw si Dyesebel? Ano ang feeling mo that time? Akala mo ba papagalitan ka?

"Wala talaga akong alam kasi nga galing sa bakasyon. Meeting lang daw but it didn't cross my mind na Dyesebel [ako]."

Bakit ka umiyak kanina?

"Same feeling, overwhelmed kasi it's my first appearance after everything, overwhleming lang. It gives me tears of joy na 2014 pala is a great year. It's a great way na masimulan mo ang 2014 na ikaw si Dyesebel."

Was it (2013) a learning year for you?

"Yes, definitely."

Sa dami ng pinagdaanan mo, parang ang bait pa rin sa iyo ng tao ng industriya. Parang ang tanong eh, ano ba ang ginawa mo at ganito ka ka blessed?

"Nagkakamali naman talaga ang isang tao, pero hindi naman lagi ganoon."

Paki-clear lang, 'di naman naapektuhan endorsements mo?

"Hindi po."

Iinom ka pa ba, Anne?

"Opo."

Naga-alak ka pa 'di ba, nag-e-endorse ka pa?

"Opo."

Nagju-juice ka pa rin?

"Opo."

Willing ka ba to sacrifice ang ibang project mo for Dyesebel?

"If kayang pagsabayin ay kakayanin. Kung gusto mo naman ang isang bagay and you love what you do,  kakayanin naman 'yon."

Wala ka bang ipapagawa sa katawan mo kasi nga [ikaw si] Dyesebel?

"Parang hindi ko naman po kayang magpagawa."

Wala ka pang pinagawa diyan [sa katawan mo]?

"No. Siguro mahirap magpagawa lalo na at laki ka sa industriya because all eyes are on you. Lahat ng pictures mo mula nang bata ka, nandoon ang ebidensiya. So never po ako magpapagawa kasi mahahalata."

Lessons learned sa 2013?

"Sa akin na lang po 'yon, basta may lessons learned."

Ano ang message mo sa madlang people na lahat sinuportahan ka mula sa taas hanggang sa nangyari sa iyo?

"Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng aking followers, sa lahat ng mga tagasubaybay at sa lahat ng madlang
people who have the kind of faith in me, sobrang salamat po. Sa ups and downs, you guys have been there for me so maraming, maraming salamat. For 2014, I promise to do my best to be the best Dyesebel for you."
