Completion press conference of movie "Nishino Yukihiko no Koi to Bouken"
Takenouchi revealed that the first scene he had with Ono was a bed scene and they were told by Iguchi to behave 10 times more intimately than they did during the rehearsal which made them very embarrassed. Both of them were waiting for the director to shout "cut" but she kept rolling the camera and claimed that she was too engrossed and forgot to shout "cut". They had to do the same scene for 3 times and really thought that the director was sadistic for putting them through such "torture". With response to this, Iguchi said that she was glad that the cast exceeded her expectations and made the movie much better than it appeared on the script.
The female cast also praised Takenouchi in many ways where Ono said that he made her feel as if she was loved and accepted for who she was while Asou gushed about how charming and handsome he was and was easily swept off her feet when he looked at her in the eye. Honda also commented that she felt as if Takenouchi's eyes were sucking her into him and blushed at the mention of this. In response, Takenouchi called himself a typical Japanese guy who is probably not easy to understand so he regards people like Clint Eastwood and Steve McQueen as the ideal men he tries to learn from in order to understand women better and become more popular with the ladies.
The movie "Nishino Yukihiko no Koi to Bouken" is based on the novel by Akutagawa Award winner Kawakami Hiromi and features Takenouchi as a seemingly-perfect man who has great looks, a high-flying career and is good in bed but always gets dumped by the women he dates after some time. The movie will begin its run in cinemas from 8 February.
