2009 Star Magic Catalog

Carla is in the 2009 Star Magic Catalog under The Next Wave.

When you're done taking baby steps, stardom won't be that far from reach. It takes a lot of discipline and hard work for dreams to translate to reality and for the promise to be fulfilled.
Remember these faces that are all set to light up the screen and weave their own kind of magic.

Graphic Manic

Carla is in the November 2008 issue of Metro Magazine in the Style / Runway for Real section.


A new look in graphic print has replaced the pop-art mania seen last season. Metro shows you how to stick to the basics and still go graphic in more reserved, subtler hues of black and white.

What a Girl Wants

Carla Humphries, the doe-eyed international model, and willowy ingénue of the local small and silver screen, may seem untouchable. The 20 year-old sets things straight with 24/7, and gets real about being a klutz, getting recognized on the street, shopping, and what she really wants for Christmas.

You keep on saying that you're a klutz, but it's hard to believe that, looking at you now.

When I was younger, in Paris , I broke my arm twice on roller skates. The third time was when I fell from a horse while modelling. When I was in school, I broke my left hand and my left knee. I fell down the stairs when I was in the swimming team. My teammate was brushing my wet hair while we were going down the stairs and she tugged too hard and I fell down.

Do you still get embarrassed whenever that happens?

Being accident-prone helps me be more kenkoy (goofy). When you fall down a lot, you don't get embarrassed anymore. You're used to it. Oftentimes in acting, you take on a character that oftentimes makes a fool of herself. It helps me that way.

You've been in a few soaps now, like ABS CBN's Bituing Walang Ningning and Abt Ur Luv , and the movie For the First Time with KC Concepcion and Richard Gutierrez, do you get recognized on the street now?

I don't expect it, but people actually know who I am. And whenever somebody does recognize me, it's flattering, but at the same time, I always hope that whenever my fans see me, I would not be doing anything embarrassing.

You seem like a girl who likes shopping. Is that true?

I like shopping, but I'm a one-time-big-time person because I'm also very kuripot (stingy) — but not with my parents' money (laughs). I like buying things for people and I don't mind spending a lot of my money on them. If it's for myself, I think about it a hundred times before buying it, but curiously I end up buying things that I don't get to use and losing out on purchases that I really like.


If you can have anything in the world, what would you put on your wish list?
  1. I want to be able to travel the world and learn about cultures. 
  2. I want to be a princess. 
  3. I want to learn how to speak all the languages so no matter which country I go to, I would be able to converse with the locals with ease. 
  4. I want to go to Hollywood, and win an award. 
  5. I want to act in a biographical movie of a famous person.
  6. I want to own a country.
