Haruka Ayase stands out at Shinagawa Station in the morning in a “too-cute knit” outfit.
During muscle training for a hard-boiled movie shooting
One weekend morning when it was still hot. It was still hot on a weekend morning, and actress Haruka Ayase, 37, was filming at a plaza in front of Shinagawa Station (Minato-ku).
On this particular day, we were shooting a commercial for UNIQLO. Ms. Ayase was wearing an autumn/winter sweater and looked very hot. She was not battered by the heat and was smiling as usual,” said an advertising agency official.
Ayase is currently in the middle of filming a hard-boiled movie to be released next year. She will be challenging herself in full-fledged action scenes, so her long hair has been cut off. She is said to be training like an athlete every day.
Ms. Ayase has always had strong legs and excellent athleticism. She played the role of a female bouncer and spy in “Seirei no Mamorujin” (NHK) and “Okusama wa Hattori ni Beware” (Nippon Television Network), and since then she has been training her muscles, doing 200 push-ups and 150 sit-ups every day. Even on a regular basis, she goes to the gym when she has time and does her best to stretch before going to bed,” says Masako Hasegawa, an entertainment reporter.
Ayase once said, “I have a desire to get married, but I have never met anyone who says, ‘I want to marry this person. There were reports of a love affair with Korean star Noh Min-woo (36), but no rumors of love have been heard since then. She is very busy with her day job, with a film commemorating Toei’s 70th anniversary scheduled to be released in January next year. The whole nation is rooting for her stoic approach to her work!
