If you’ve ever seen Donnalyn Bartolome’s Instagram feed, you would know that Anne Curtis is her biggest idol. When the It’s Showtime host got married, of course Donnalyn had to share a congratulatory photo with the caption, “My favorite, you’re so beautiful.. I am so happy for you.. I’m out of words.” There is also the birthday post that greeted, “One day, I’ll think of a perfect gift for you. Happy Birthday my favorite!”
The best part about their artist-fan relationship is that Anne adores her too. In fact, the “Cry No Fear” actress even received an invitation for the launch of BLK Cosmetics’ KBeauty Collection along with a set of the makeup line.
We all love Anne Curtis. But Donnalyn is vying for the title of number one fan. On Tonight with Boy Abunda, she showed all of us a glimpse of her fangirl life. Apparently, she still remembers and celebrates the day she first met Anne. Proof? Her dedicated post on Instagram reads, “June 11, 2013 is the day I first met you. 5 years now and it will always be like the first time”.
Aside from the BLK Cosmetics launch, she was also supposed to attend the premiere night of “Sid & Aya.” She couldn’t make it because she had to look after her siblings while their mom was in Japan. It broke her heart, “mga two days, three days po ko nagluksa,” she expressed.
This all started for Donnalyn back in 2010. “I remember parang lost teenager ako noon,” she recounted. It was the point in her life when she was angry with the world and didn’t go out much. Everything changed when she saw the romantic comedy, “Babe I Love You,” “Sabi ko, ‘hindi pa end of the world’”. No wonder she admires Anne so much.
