Yassi Pressman Denies Involvement With Derrick MonasterioYassi Pressman denied that she is romantically involved with Derrick Monasterio. In fact, the one Derrick is dating is her sister, Yssa Pressman.
Yassi said Yssa and Derrick are not yet together. She knew Derrick for a long time and she thinks he’s a really nice guy.
She doesn't focus on her lovelife now because she's very busy with her career. Aside from her movie, "Talk Back And You're Dead," she's also doing a stint as an MTV VJ.
Although there are those who make an attempt to court her, Yassi is not entertaining anyone right now.
The movie is under Viva Films and Skylight Films, so that's why the press conference happened at 9501 Restaurant at ELJ Building.
It is not new for her to be in the Kapamilya network. She played small roles in "Gulong Ng Palad" and "Munting Miss U." Back then, she was not focused on being an artist because these are just small roles and she was still studying.
She started her career as Yassi Pressman on GMA-7.
In "Talk Back And You're Dead," she will play the sister of Joseph Marco's character. She has a bad side in the movie, Yassi said. Actually, her character is naturally nice but she's just really angry at Samantha (Nadine Lustre's role). They had a competition there, she added.
Yassi, Nadine and James Reid are the ones who will star in the movie because Andre Paras was pulled out since he needed to tape for "The Half Sisters" plus he has school and basketball training.
The four were launched in "Diary Ng Panget" in April 2014. The reason why Andre was pulled out was to differentiate "Talk Back And You're Dead" from "Diary Ng Panget," but of course, they miss working with him.
Andre makes sure he messages them in their group chat, and they still hang out together in MTV.
But this is not the last time they will all be working together. They still have a new project in the works.
She doesn't mind that Nadine is being launched as a leading lady because VIVA also has plans for her and Andre. "Pero hindi pa siya sure kaya ayoko munang magbitiw ng kahit na ano."
Although she is not the main character in the movie, Yassi said she still feels pressured because her role, Audrey, is an interesting character. She is the most complicated role she has ever played.
She doesn't mind that James and Nadine took the helm for this movie because the support of the fans is still the same.
She hopes their fans will also support this new project.
