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.
She's always looked lifeless, even since Amachan
Looking lifeless has always been her selling point
Do something about it with your acting skills!
All I can say is that she's always been like this
Oh you're right, things are looking really bad there.
She's a prime prospect so her agency should take more care of her.
Isn't it because of the baldie in the middle?
Even her boobies look lifeless
Can't spot the difference
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.
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.
Because she's in front of the media, her natural sworn enemies
I'm more scared of the face of the girl beside her
Squarish facial outline
An expressionless beauty really turns me on
She's always looked gloomy wwwww
Ai Hashimoto and Miki Nakatani have the same birthdate!! They're 20 years apart, though.
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.
Maybe she hasn't been f*cking Ochiai and Ayano lately
Fat and ugly on the left side
Why'd things turn out this way
Ai Hashimoto's boyfriend, Motoki Ochiai. They've been dating since she was 17 so he ought to be arrested for child molestation.
Doing' it all the time with Motoki
There's this one guy on this thread who's all butthurt and face all red, I'm scared
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
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.
Maybe she crash diets before she goes in front of the camera, and is actually on the verge of collapsing due to starvation
I would have wanted her to play Mikasa if we were judging it by her past looks
Hm? But Ai Hashimoto's always been like this. Wasn't this "cool beauty" gig or looking slightly grumpy her persona?
Probably just some random reason like her period or something
Ai Hashimoto-san's first drama as the lead
Tue  Hard Nut! *3.7% _ *3.6%
She's always been the type who had a blank expression
She's always looked unenthusiastic in whatever she does w And she played the role of an outlaw throughout Amachan, which really suited her.
Whenever she's full of life, she looks like Freddy Mercury and is actually so cute, though
Compared to her, Miki Nakatani's so professional, though
Isn't that just her "business face"? She might be burning with passion deep inside like Gouriki for all you know.
She really does resemble Yu Darvish
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.
Ai Hashimoto's super cute in Kawaki. It's good that she's got a lot of projects going on for her.
She's always been indifferent
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.
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!)
I've come to like her after seeing her in Kawaki. She's more memorable than the heroine.
If Ai Hashimoto was a man, he'd be an ikemen
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.
So you can become popular even with this attitude? What an easy industry, huh.
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.
She's always been like this
Must be sleepy
Megocchi's eyes always glimmer, though
