Actress Solenn Heussaff says she is in favor of the smoke-free campaign but there are other issues the government should prioritize.

MANILA, Philippines – Film and television personality Solenn Heussaff revealed she is in favor of the smoke-free Philippines campaign but she thinks there are other issues the government should prioritize.

“I think that will be a good thing but I think everyone can decide for themselves on what they want to do and I think we have other issues that are more important to take care of,” she told ABS-CBN News during the Esquire Ball on Wednesday night.

Heussaff even cited the reproductive health bill as a more urgent national issue.

Actresses Nora Aunor and Anne Curtis recently came under fire for posing for 2 different magazines while holding a cigarette.

The Philippine Medical Association, an organization which supports the smoke-free Philippines campaign, even expressed displeasure toward the said photos, saying the images are conveying a bad image.

Meanwhile, Heussaff said she is elated to be given the chance to work with Diamond Star Maricel Soriano in an upcoming movie.

“Very nice story. I am very excited. They are all very good actors and I’m so honored to be part of the movie. Most of my scenes are with Maricel Soriano,” she said.

“Three different stories all linked up together. It’s like about love, betrayal and forgiving, different kinds of love,” Heussaff added.
