The 13th annual “Men’s Favorite Faces” ranking (ORICON NEWS) was announced this year, and Yutaka Takenouchi was chosen as the top for the second year in a row.
At 179 centimeters tall with a thick chest plate, his muscular physique has not changed much since his 30s. As he has aged, his face and voice have become more austere, and many men are looking at him with envy as he has fulfilled all the elements that men admire.
Last month, Sasaki Kuranosuke, the “last great bachelor actor” who played a part in Takenouchi’s career, got married.
“It’s a shame, but Takenouchi is still around.
It’s a shame, but there’s still Takenouchi-san.
In the midst of all this, on November 12, Takenouchi made headlines when she announced that she would be leaving Kenon, the major entertainment agency to which she had belonged for 26 years, at the end of this year.
He wrote about his feelings, saying, “I feel a strong desire to change my environment at the age of fifty.
She wrote about her feelings.
In the spring of this year, he starred in the drama “Ichikei no Karasu” (Fuji TV), and in “Wandering Blade” (WOWOW), in which he played a man bent on revenge for the murder of his daughter.
In commercials, too, he has recently been playing many comical roles, which may indicate that he is now more willing to take on new possibilities as an actor.
At the same time, many fans are wondering, “Has there been any change in her private life? (drama production insider). It was reported that Takenouchi was dating actress Kana Kurashina in 2002, and since both their offices admitted that it was true, they were said to be close to marriage.
However, they broke up in the summer of ’18. However, they broke up in the summer of 2006, and since then, there has been no mention of Takenouchi.
In late April this year, this magazine witnessed Takenouchi shopping at a grocery store in Shibuya ward, which is known for its high quality natural foods. Takenouchi is known to be a self-catering man, and he seemed to have become accustomed to it, putting ingredients into his shopping basket one after another.
However, when he came to the “leafy” vegetable section, his eyes became more serious. Picking up a green onion, he seemed to be asking the clerk about its freshness and quality.
After only about five minutes, he walked out of the store, opened the trunk of the pickup car, and started sorting through the many suits and luggage on hangers. The car was not headed to Takenouchi’s home, but to the mansion where his elderly mother lived alone, estimated to be worth 500 million yen.
After getting out of the car, Takenouchi was carrying in foodstuffs and a large number of suits back and forth.
“This mansion is a house that Takenouchi gave to his parents as a gift in 2002, and now his elderly mother lives there alone. Takenouchi visits the house regularly and even cooks meals for her mother. She probably stays here herself and brings in her personal belongings so that she can go to work from here,” said a friend of Takenouchi’s.
Perhaps the most important thing for Takenouchi right now is “spending time with his elderly mother. I wonder if he will find a woman who will spend that time with him.
