FRIDAY ran an article about Ai Hashimoto's private life in its December 13 issue.
According to the article, Ai Hashimoto finished watching Atsuko Maeda's movie Moratorium Tamako at 11pm and started walking the neon district of Shinjuku by herself without any cap or mask on to disguise herself. She then suddenly punched a signboard on the sidewalk then moved on to the subway and disappeared near the apartment of her rumored boyfriend.
"Hashimoto is only 17 years old. According to the Tokyo Metropolitan Ordinance Regarding the Healthy Development of Youths, a person under the age of 18 walking alone from 11pm to 4am without a valid reason is subject to vocational guidance. If Hashimoto ever runs into this sort of trouble, this will definitely affect the projects in which she is involved."
FRIDAY got a scoop on Hashimoto last May with actor Motoki Ochiai where they spent time together at an apartment until late at night. Josei Seven then reported Hashimoto having a date with an actor 14 years older than her, Gou Ayano, at a cafe.
"Hashimoto-san was previously reported to have been drinking under the legal age at the bar she went to with Motoki Ochiai (her agency denied this and insisted that she only had soft drinks) and gave the public a bad image of her. And so most people didn't get surprised with the new reports. But punching a signboard isn't a womanly thing to do. Maybe she got irritated with Maeda-san's movie...... Her agency basically allows her to have her freedom when it comes to her private life, but she should behave better, at least until she graduates from high school." - (showbiz writer)
Hashimoto has already been cast in the movies Otona Drop and Kiseijuu for next year, and it will be troubling times for the movie producers if she gets any more scandals.
It would've been a different story if she broke the sign, but she just punched it, right?
And because of her role in Amachan, I started having this weird sense that yankees are fine as well
It's good that she's got vigor
I hate to think what lies ahead for her when she's shamelessly acting like a bi+ch already at this age
When will the media quit bringing up Amachan? Enough already.
Looks like she's the only one who didn't become popular
What kind of movie would make you want to punch a signboard? w
She's heading straight into the "post-Hirosue" slot
She's exactly like that bi+chy Yui-chan, huh
I hope she suffers a dreadful experience soon
"Damn it, I'm being followed..." Gan!
If you change your perspective of her, she's actually pretty cool. There aren't any idols like this recently.
- ＞前田さんの映画にイラつきでもしたのでしょうか……。そりゃあこんな演技でも映画の主演できるのかよって思うわなｗ>Maybe she got irritated with Maeda-san's movie...
Well yeah, her acting would really make you wonder how she gets to play the lead in a movie w
Hashimoto's best costume in Amachan is her provincial yankee get-up
And what does this say about the media who stalks an underaged girl late at night?
- ストーカーかカメラ隠して撮ってる感じだなA stalker, huh.
It feels like she's being photographed with a hidden camera.
That guy who got to kiss Ai Hashimoto who was still in junior high in the movie Kokuhaku was such a winner
So her character Yui-chan has come to life, huh
- 「告白」「桐島部活」「あまちゃん」これだけ作品に恵まれてきたのに、マイナスで打ち消せるのはすごいわｗKokuhaku, Kirishima bukatsu, Amachan
She's had all these wonderful shows in her resumé, and it's amazing how she has managed to eliminate the memory of these with her negative image
So she has fallen once again to the dark side, huh
She just looks like BUCK-TICK's Sakurai to me
This damn bi+ch's boobies aren't growing because she's not going to bed early
So she's like Nikuben-Kie-chan's younger sister, huh
- 別に良いんじゃないの。どうせ俺らのものになるわけじゃないんだからさ。そもそもマトモな奴が、人の心を打つ演技なんかできるわけねぇよ。女優を世間一般の型にはめても仕方ない。I don't see a problem here.
It's not like she'll ever become ours.
And there are no decent people who have the ability to touch hearts through their acting.
There's no point in thinking of these actresses along the same lines as a common person.
You'll develop a tendency to get fractured so stop punching with your bare fist
Punching a signboard after seeing a movie must've meant she watched a yakuza or kung-fu flick
I don't dislike this
I actually love her
- こういうキャラの子なんだから別に騒ぐ程のもんじゃない。バールの様な物で自販機荒らししたとかなら騒げ。This is how her character is being built up.
It's not something to make a fuss about.
Go make a noise if she used a crowbar to mess up a vending machine or something.
One would definitely feel like punching a wall if you're being followed around and photographed like this.
