Takeshi Kaneshiro is known to be a low-key actor who rarely appears in the public eye when he has no acting plans.
Hence, her recent appearance on a magazine cover has sparked interest.
Monday, June 13, the Chinese magazine SheMen shared the cover of its June issue on Weibo, which featured 48-year-old Kaneshiro with the caption, “An Ordinary Man.”
SheMen said, “Ideal happiness doesn’t have to be ‘ideal’ for Takeshi Kaneshiro who prefers to stay at home. Living the life of an ordinary man is happiness enough (for him).”
The post continued, “He’s not used to being a star because he just wants to be an actor. He prefers to focus on one thing and not take on too many acting roles at once.”
He concluded: “The form is temporary, so there is no need to mark every phase.”
Several fans said they hadn’t seen the Japanese-Taiwanese actor for a long time. Others have noted that he is still dashing and has an aura around him.
According to Taiwan Apple Daily, this is the fifth time that Kaneshiro has appeared on the cover of SheMen.
The actor is known for starring in films such as Lavender (2000) and House of the Flying Daggers (2004). He hasn’t been in a movie since the romantic comedy It’s not what I expected (2017) with Chinese actress Zhou Dongyu.
He starred in a mobile game commercial in 2021, while his crime thriller neon son of the night has no release date even though filming wrapped in 2017. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
