The new commercial for Suntory’s “The Premium Malts,” which began airing in mid-July, features actress Suzu Hirose (25). Hirose will also appear in the movie “Kirie’s Song,” which is scheduled to be released in October, and there will be no shortage of topics in the second half of 2011.
In consideration of the influence of alcoholic beverage commercials on minors, the Advertising Review Committee has decreed that celebrities under the age of 25 may not be used as advertising models. Ms. Hirose, who turned 25 this June, is no longer subject to this rule. This has raised expectations that she will be able to perform in a more “mature” manner.
Hirose’s “mature” look was on display at the press conference for her appointment as the new messenger of “The Premium Maltz”. Hirose appeared in a long dark blue dress. She charmed the interviewers with her mature, calm coloring and sexy off-the-shoulder outfit.
Hirose is a very talented actress who has starred in one TV drama and two movies this year alone, and a movie starring her has already been announced for next year as well. Yuji Sakamoto wrote the screenplay. His film “Monster,” released this year, won the Best Screenplay Award at the Cannes International Film Festival. His specialty is films that plunge into the inner world of human beings, which requires a high level of acting ability from the actors. I am looking forward to seeing what kind of acting Ms. Hirose can do now that she has peeled off her skin,” said a movie writer.
Hirose celebrated the 10th anniversary of her debut last year, and her career has been going smoothly. Her evolution continues unabated.
