Haneesya Hanee has shared her response to people comparing her to fellow “Dewi Remaja” alum Anna Jobling. In case you don’t know, the two stunning stars were finalists of the beauty pageant back in 2018.
As of late, the latter has been gaining traction among local fans after she starred in a drama titled “Melur Untuk Firdaus”, alongside up-and-coming actor Meerqeen. As a result, some netizens began pitting Anna and former “Dewi Remaja” winner, Haneesya, against each other.
Yesterday (Sunday, 17th July), the fashion model-turn-actress conducted a Q&A session to interact with her fans on Instagram. During the session, Haneesya was asked by this particular IG user to comment on the new actress’ recent success. They questioned, “Do you remember Anna Jobling? Now she is the most popular among the alumni of ‘Dewi Remaja’. Aren’t you jealous of her?”
In response, Haneesya explained that she has never been jealous of Anna’s newfound fame as an actress. “(And) why should I be envious of someone else’s success? Jealousy is for the weak. Rezeki (sustenance) comes from God. I may not be famous. But I still get (my salary). Paying my bills, living happily with my family. That’s all I need in my life,” the 22-year-old said.
To refresh everyone’s memory, Haneesya was previously crowned the winner of “Dewi Remaja” for the 2018/2019 edition. However, the “Cik Reen Encik Ngok Ngek” actress was stripped off her title after she was found guilty of breaking the rules and clauses of her contract.
In lieu of that, people suspected Anna as the individual responsible for spreading the viral video of Haneesya drinking at a club, to which she had strongly denied.
