According to searches, you just can’t get enough of 4th-Highest-Paid-Actress-Worldwide and Only-Woman-of-Color-in-the-list (yet the palest of them all) Fan Bingbing… so here she is in all her visual glory for the latest Vogue Taiwan shot by the wonderful Sun Jun [1].

Look at that gorgeous cape and fabric!

Catch the rest of the photoshoot at Aiya!

 

Tell me the truth- did you miss this enthusiastic me? All these up to date project announcements take me back years into fandom when we all used to talk about all things Yu! Anyway, the latest in one of the few project announcements in Yu Aoi’s repertoire [1][2] is that she’s set for Nobuhiro Yamashita’s latest film titled Over Fence (オーバー・フェンス), which is an adaptation of a story in the anthology Kogane no Fuku (黄金の服) by Sato Yasushi.

The film also stars Odagiri Joe and Shota Matsuda.

Over Fence completes a trilogy based on Sato’s stories, beginning with Sketches of Kaitan City (海炭市叙景) and The Light Shines Only There (そこのみにて光輝く).

You never really know with katakana spelling… is it Spokane’s Left Hand (スポケーンの左手)? If I hadn’t googled スポケーン, I would’ve totally thought it’s “spoken,” but apparently this brand new play is based on the 2004 Academy Award-winning Irish comedy short by Martin McDonagh, which starred Brendan Gleeson — Gleeson’s son, Domhnall Gleeson… now, sorta famous in his own right, also shows up. Watch it here.

The play also stars Nakajima Shu (中嶋しゅう) — in, I suppose, the Brendan Gleeson role, Song Ha (成河) – as Rúaidhrí Conroy, and Okamoto Kenichi (岡本健一) – as the man on the train.

Spokane’s Left Hand will be running from November 14 to Novemeber 29th at the Theatre Tram in Tokyo. Tickets are available at Ticket Pia at Y7,800.

It doesn’t matter how many people perceived Kidman’s films to be bad, I’ll still watch any of them- I mean, not for nothing she placed #2 in my list of favorite actresses. She and Doona Bae keep crossing paths in my fandom life~

So, Nic is back in London and back on stage. People who get to go to London to actually watch her perform live are mad excited… for the rest of us, we’re just damn jealous.

The Guardian also has a lovely 3min. clip where Nicole talks about who Rosalind Franklin was, the relevance of the story, the female voice, and “the sell” culture.

The Independent also has an interview with director Michael Grandage, who talks about the story, why it attracted Kidman, and attracting a younger audience.

I finally sat through Dr. Rintaro and my Yu Aoi fandom has reignited once again! PB-buying and all [1][2]. Oh, yeah~ I had it bad this week. Yu’s personal life has also -all of a sudden- become public domain (or it’s easier to run into it through social media), so it’s been out there for public consumption and mass-devouring. My street kanji-reading is poor, but Google Translate has been calling her names. Demon-woman, what is this? The Dark Ages?

Also- Miyazaki Aoi’s in a new relationship… it seems. *cough*

Anyway- Monday was Yu’s 30th Birthday, and she celebrated with a group of people I had no idea were her circle of friends- these are taken from Peter‘s blog, and also feature cross-dressing personality Mitz Mangrove and… I suppose, gravure idol Ruriko Kojima (her kanji name is all funky 小嶋瑠璃子).

More.

And… I found this random ranking where they ask to rank young actresses based on their talent, and for the first time that I’m able to recall, Yu comes on top of Miyazaki Aoi. LOL So, more power to Yu! Though, Masami Nagasawa comes at #3, followed in #5 by Aya Ueto, Satomi Ishihara at #6, Ayase Haruka at #7, Horikita Maki at #9 and Mao Inoue at #10.

Toda Erika ranks at #4, and I don’t know who Yui Aragaki at #8 is. LOL And there’s no Hikari Mitsushima nor Sakura Ando, so this list is of idols. xD
