Yuki Uchida Talks About Her Proud Beautiful Legs (October ’23)

Recently, Yuki Uchida (48) made her first pitch in 29 years at a professional baseball game, appearing in a Yakult uniform with blue shorts and leggings. Her youthful appearance, which belies her age, spread widely on social media platforms, sparking comments like “Isn’t it cheating to look like this at 48?” and “Her smile is too cute.” Among them, the comment “a timeless beauty” garnered numerous likes, enough to make headlines in online news.

“Not limited to Yuki Uchida, cute appearances of actresses from the over-50s generation are gaining a lot of attention in the online world. Whenever they appear at events or post recent photos on social media, they quickly go viral and become news online. Not only youthful for their age group, but their charming gestures and smiles also serve as a soothing presence for younger people,” said a television scriptwriter.

Currently, Yuriko Ishida (54) is starring in the NHK morning drama series “Tora ni Tsubasa” as the mother of the protagonist, Torako This role likely marks her first portrayal prominently featuring white hair, but her occasional playful expressions and spontaneous ad-lib performances have been well received. On June 6th, she posted a photo titled ”<Bedhead Art>” on her Instagram, showing her tousled hair. This led to some rare critical comments on social media such as “a bit calculated” and “didn’t want to see her trying to look natural.”

“Some articles have suggested she’s challenging the cliché phrase ‘miraculous over-50s,’ but Ishida-san likely isn’t conscious of that. She simply posted what she wanted naturally. However, it underscores how much attention Ishida-san garners, almost like an idol,” commented a television magazine writer.

The key is having a mindset of wanting to walk in good health at any age.

“FRIDAY” has frequently witnessed moments of “cuteness” displayed not only by Uchida and Ishida but also by actresses like Nanao Matsushima (50), Eri Fukatsu (51), and Hiromi Nagasaku (53). We hope everyone can enjoy seeing these comforting appearances.

“I feel a bit embarrassed about it.”

On October 30, ’23, at the awards ceremony for the 19th Clarino Beautiful Legs Awards 2023 held in Tokyo, Yuki Uchida, selected in the Over Forty division, expressed these thoughts at the time. However,

“Rather than beautiful legs, I think of them as strong legs for living, so I’m truly happy.”

With a modest tone, she proudly joked about her healthy legs, eliciting laughter. On that day, Uchida showcased an outstanding style in a brown waist-mark one-piece dress that subtly revealed her left collarbone, paired with light blue-gray pumps. As someone who enjoys camping and often walks mountain trails,

“I think having a mindset of wanting to walk in good health at any age might be the secret to beautiful legs.”

She revealed, capturing the audience’s attention.

“There’s more to why these actresses in their fifties are called ‘cute’—behind that label is not just physical care but also a strong focus on nurturing their hearts. The reason they continue to charm fans isn’t just because they’re cute, but also because of the relentless efforts they put in,” remarked a fashion magazine journalist.

Attention is now turning to their future endeavors.
