Juri Ueno - Nikkei Entertainment MagazineAwww, Juri-chan! I was reading a post over at the boards, and found that Yuuki provided a link to an English-translated  Juri Ueno interview for the latest issue of Nikkei Entertainment Magazine. Juri can be so charismatic~~ LOL’ but apparently it only works on girls. Let’s face it, girls~~~ Boys or most of boys have RUBBISH taste in women… case and point all those guy magazines, such as FHM. Here’s the chart~

Juri Ueno - Boy and Girl Charts

It’s a really insightful interview in which she discusses her latest film (GuGu), her acting in Nodame, Last Friends~ Here are some quotes;

Scans and complete article translation, here. ^^

    You know how before I used to say how Shane in L word always made me gay for like five minutes? Well now Juri does that to me, I’m having like the hugest crush on her …….

    […] this photoshoot. In fact, Juri Ueno is a ball of energy waiting to burst open. Quirky and off-beat, she’s mentioned that she’s grown up watching variety shows, and that she’s happy that there are roles for people like her, who don’t feel […]
