Anne Curtis portrays Mae


Anne Curtis received backlash from netizens after posting the movie poster on Instagram last August 20, a day before the premiere of the film. The poster featured a daring image of Curtis and Gumabao. People began commenting how inappropriate it was for a married lady and that she should no longer accept such sexy roles. Her husband, Erwan Heussaff, came to the actress' defense, saying that there is "no need to throw around words like disrespect or dictate what a person should or shouldn’t do after getting married.” He added that the "hilarious comments" are sexist. "If this was a married guy actor doing love scenes, no one would have any issue with it,” he said.[5]
