Takeshi Kaneshiro not afraid of younger competitors; John Woo confident of "The Crossing 2"



Director John Woo and cast for part 2 of "The Crossing" which includes: Zhang Ziyi, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Song Hye-kyo, Huang Xiaoming, Tong Dawei and Masami Nagasawa attends a promotional event in Beijing.

During the Q&As, Takeshi Kaneshiro, 41, reveals that he is not afraid of competition from other young, handsome males. Once he decides to take part on a film, he will focus only on his work and not think about other issues.

When asked if he is afraid of growing old, he candidly shares that he is but worrying doesn't stop the clock from ticking. But Zhang Ziyi comforts Takeshi by praising his handsomeness at 41, and Takeshi, as a ladykiller, did not forget to reciprocate the praise.

At the event, John Woo says that he is confident of success for "The Crossing Part 2" as it is a refreshing finish to the first part. Even though part 1 was not a success at the box office, John Woo has received plenty of positive feedback from those who have watched the film through other channels.

If it's any consolation, I'm turning 35 in exactly a week.
