Concerns grow over Ai Hashimoto's "lifeless eyes"

(Partial Translation)

The press meet for the movie Kawaki was held at Nihonbashi's TOHO Cinemas on the 28th last month and was attended by the director Tetsuya Nakashima, Koji Yakusho (58), Nana Komatsu (18), Miki Nakatani (38), and Ai Hashimoto (18). People were quick to point out on the Internet how Hashimoto looked lifeless.

This is Komatsu's movie debut, an according to Hashimoto: "She's very cute and pretty, and I don't exactly know how to feel when I'm beside her, but I want to keep seeing her blossom and hope that she meets people who will cherish that appeal that she has. I really like her", but had a blank face the whole time and wasn't smiling too much.

Net users were quick to comment: "Is she tired?", "Too much negativity coming out from her", "She used to be so much cuter in Amachan...".

Hashimoto was a model in the magazine Seventeen from 2009, and put her name on the map with her role in Tetsuya Nakashima's Kokuhaku. Her role in the 2013 movie Kirishima, bukatsu yameru tte yo earned her the Best Newcomer award at the 86th Kinema Junpo Best Ten awards, and was recognized as well at the 36th Japan Academy Awards. She went on to play a major role in the morning drama Amachan in the same year, and also made her appearance at the Kouhaku Uta Gassen with the rest of the Amachan cast.

While Amachan was airing, Hashimoto was reported to have spent the night with Motoki Ochiai, a co-star of hers in the movie Kirishima, bukatsu yameru tte yo. Ochiai was criticized at this time for having sexual relations with a minor. Three months later, Hashimoto was reportedly seen dating Gou Ayano, an actor 14 years her senior. By this time, Hashimoto was being called a "devilish enchantress" and a "slut". She was then seen in December to have slammed a signboard in Shinjuku, and was also called "fat" when she received the Best Newcomer award at the Élan d'or awards last February.

It's probably that time that comes once a month.
It's not something that should be fussed about.
5 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:38:34.65
She's always looked lifeless, even since Amachan

22 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:48:38.74 ID:9Dk/
That was the first thing that came to my mind as well when I read the article

6 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:38:41.55
Looking lifeless has always been her selling point
7 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:39:38.10
Do something about it with your acting skills!
9 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:41:09.74
All I can say is that she's always been like this
10 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:41:27.55

Oh you're right, things are looking really bad there.
She's a prime prospect so her agency should take more care of her.
11 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:41:42.57 ID:g/


Isn't it because of the baldie in the middle?
14 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:42:57.15
Even her boobies look lifeless

15 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:43:35.51
You're right, she's got none at all

16 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:44:52.81

Can't spot the difference
17 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:45:04.85

True, she looks absent-minded. To think that it felt like you'd turn to stone if your eyes met hers back in the day.
18 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:45:49.11

Her naturally stiff face just looks awkward because she's got the wits and the talent as an actress. She's never been the type of girl who'd be all cheerful in front of other people.
20 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:48:03.70 ID:g/
Because she's in front of the media, her natural sworn enemies
21 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:48:27.98
I'm more scared of the face of the girl beside her
23 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:49:07.95
Squarish facial outline
24 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:50:34.74
An expressionless beauty really turns me on
26 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:52:46.92
She's always looked gloomy wwwww
27 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:52:52.07

Ai Hashimoto and Miki Nakatani have the same birthdate!! They're 20 years apart, though.
30 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:54:45.79

She looked so cute in the adlib-wars show she was in with Tsurube. I actually think she'd be alright even she's like a dead person in front of the media if she can act like that.

33 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:56:08.45

But just by watching her movies, she doesn't look like a good actress at all. She hasn't changed a bit since her Kanseitou days.
46 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:05:15.99
確かにクールでしらっーとした役はいいんだけどねw あまちゃんとかは微妙だったな…
True, her cool and quiet roles suit her more w She actually seemed a bit awkward in Amachan...

31 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:55:41.29
Maybe she hasn't been f*cking Ochiai and Ayano lately
25 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:52:02.91
28 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:53:35.21
Fat and ugly on the left side
29 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:54:40.56
32 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 01:55:57.68
Why'd things turn out this way
53 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:15:22.92


Ai Hashimoto's boyfriend, Motoki Ochiai. They've been dating since she was 17 so he ought to be arrested for child molestation.
56 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:16:54.34
Doing' it all the time with Motoki
49 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:07:56.68
There's this one guy on this thread who's all butthurt and face all red, I'm scared
92 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 04:25:21.66

But the thread got rolling because of my posts w
To think that the thread almost seemed like it would go obsolete since no one's been replying w

109 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 05:39:10.28
Why are you so desperate? Hm?

41 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:00:34.67
色々出すぎで疲れてんじゃないの。 映画やらPVやら使いたくなる顔してっからな。
She must be tired after appearing all around in various things. It's because she's got this face that would make you want to use in movies and promotional videos.
42 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:01:59.04

Maybe she crash diets before she goes in front of the camera, and is actually on the verge of collapsing due to starvation
43 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:01:59.86
I would have wanted her to play Mikasa if we were judging it by her past looks
45 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:04:57.85
ん? 橋本愛って、元々こんな感じだろ。

Hm? But Ai Hashimoto's always been like this. Wasn't this "cool beauty" gig or looking slightly grumpy her persona?
47 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:07:29.57
Probably just some random reason like her period or something
44 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:04:04.00
火【22】ハードナッツ!  *3.7__*3.6__
Ai Hashimoto-san's first drama as the lead
Tue [22] Hard Nut! *3.7% _ *3.6%

48 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:07:34.44
Aren't those ratings for reruns?
51 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:10:20.83
Yup, it was first shown on BS Premium.
50 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:09:20.71
Hard Nut is actually a very good drama. It did feel like something only NHK could pull off.
60 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:22:20.77
始まる前はナンバーズのパクリか?と思ったがそんな事はなく 意外に面白かったな。 ただNHKならではって程ではない。民放の深夜ドラマをちょっと 真面目にした程度のレベル。
Before it started, I thought, "Is this a Numbers rip-off?", but that wasn't the case at all, and it was surprisingly good. But I don't think it's something only NHK could do. It's just a bit more decent than the late night dramas seen on regular channels.
64 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:25:38.47

Late night dramas on regular channels are much, much better. Tokubou was really good this season.
79 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 03:58:02.19
評価なんて人それぞれだよ。他人の感想に異を唱えるとか無粋なだけ。 君にとってはトクボウの方が面白かった。それでいいじゃないか。
Everyone has his own opinion. Doubting someone else's opinion is pointless. You prefer Tokubou. That's fine, then.

55 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:16:42.74
She's always been the type who had a blank expression
63 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:25:36.59

She's always looked unenthusiastic in whatever she does w And she played the role of an outlaw throughout Amachan, which really suited her.
71 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:37:36.80
Whenever she's full of life, she looks like Freddy Mercury and is actually so cute, though
72 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 02:46:06.97
Compared to her, Miki Nakatani's so professional, though

96 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 04:33:48.71
中谷は中島監督に嫌われ松子の生涯で精神崩壊させられて 暫く立ち直れなくインドに行ってたりしたのによく又出る気になったものだな 隣だしw嫌じゃないのかな
Nakatani was hated by Nakashima, and broke down thanks to the movie Memories of Matsuko. She wasn't able to recover from it for a while and went to India. I'm amazed that she can now star in a Nakashima movie again. And they're standing next to each other at that w Is she fine with that?

73 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 03:09:14.33 ID:BWgzKU/
営業用の顔なんじゃない? 裏では剛力並のやる気で燃えてるかもしれんよ。
Isn't that just her "business face"? She might be burning with passion deep inside like Gouriki for all you know.
74 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 03:24:04.82
She really does resemble Yu Darvish
76 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 03:42:06.65
告白の時はめちゃくちゃ可愛かったのになあ やっぱり若い時に完璧すぎると崩れるな
She was so cute in Kokuhaku, though. Looks like your looks will tend to turn iffy if you're too perfect when you were young.
78 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 03:56:50.92
渇き。の橋本愛メッチャ可愛いかったよ 仕事が沢山あっていい事じゃんね
Ai Hashimoto's super cute in Kawaki. It's good that she's got a lot of projects going on for her.
80 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 04:01:30.67
She's always been indifferent

81 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 04:02:42.13
ユイちゃん、いろいろ出まくってて、今自分が誰やってるのか わからなくなってんじゃねえ。
Maybe Yui-chan is getting confused as to what role she's portraying at these given times due to all those projects that she's been doing.
83 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 04:05:02.84
無愛想ってのは有村みたいのをいうの 橋本はただ覇気がないだけ ここには大きな違いがある(ここ試験出るよ!)
Sullen is a word used to describe someone like Arimura. In Hashimoto's case, she just doesn't have the spirit or the drive. There's a huge difference in this. (This'll come out in the test!)
91 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 04:24:26.36

I've come to like her after seeing her in Kawaki. She's more memorable than the heroine.
98 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 04:41:07.08
If Ai Hashimoto was a man, he'd be an ikemen
100 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 04:45:38.90

She also had a blank look on her face during the stage meet and greet of her spring movie. I think the only time you can see her smile is when she's acting.
107 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 05:20:40.21
So you can become popular even with this attitude? What an easy industry, huh.
128 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 07:03:22.78
もともと無愛想で有名。 ダイエットで脳に栄養がいってないのかも。
She's always been known as someone with a surly attitude. Maybe the nutrients haven't been going to her head because of all that dieting.
140 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 07:54:36.08
141 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 07:55:13.41
124 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 06:45:38.82
She's always been like this
125 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 06:55:01.30
Must be sleepy
132 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/07/03(木) 07:12:32.74
Megocchi's eyes always glimmer, though
