At the sidelines of a press conference held Thursday for her beauty services endorsement, the 18-year-old actress was asked on her rumored relationship with the 20-year-old Kapamilya talent.

"We're friends, we hang out, we watch movies, ganoon. Hangout-hangout lang. We're good friends," said Curtis-Smith, who is the younger sister of "It's Showtime" host Anne Curtis.

Asked whether Concepcion is courting her, she said: "Tanungin niyo na lang siya."

Curtis-Smith kept mum, merely saying "basta," when reporters noted that rumors have surfaced that she and Concepcion were actually a couple for a time.

"Basta we know each other, we hang out, basta 'yun na 'yun. I'm not denying we're really good friends," she said. "Somewhat, yes, somewhat we're special."

According to Curtis-Smith, she is set to stay for good in the Philippines to continue her showbiz career, having finished high school in Australia. The young actress said she will live with her older sister, Anne, to "establish [her] footing."
