Taiwanese-Japanese actor Takeshi Kaneshiro is not the least bothered by netizens' comments on his 'aging looks' after his recent photos were published.
'Rather than spending time and money to earn compliments for my appearance, why not spend that effort on contributing to the society?' said Takeshi in response to recent reports on his looks.
Nailing an airline endorsement deal reportedly worth NT$30 million (approximately S$1.26 million), Takeshi recently travelled to Japan and France where the commercial was shot at. The actor returned to Taiwan last month and wrapped things up with a final scene in the picturesque Taitung County.
In the final scene, Takeshi was seen riding a bicycle through the fields. The actor was said to be in such good spirits that he continued riding the bicycle even after the director was satisfied with the take.
As it was his first visit to Taitung, the 39-year-old also grabbed the opportunity to visit the local restaurants with the crew to indulge in the county's specialty dishes.
