――Certified as Guinness World Record holder
I think this record will be hard to break. I'll be turning 80 soon but this is a record that I've spent all those years making. Entertaining others while entertaining yourself, that is "Show business". As such, I want to continue on having fun forever.
――Inspiration to join show business was
Having grown up in Los Angeles because of my father's job, I got to see many shows and musicals from very young. In my early teens, Hattori Ryoichi and Misora Hibari came to perform (in the States) and I was tasked as interpreter. We would make bromides and sell them and they would just fly off the shelves. Still being a child but having the trust of everyone, that was the point where I decided I wanted to enter the entertainment industry.

I don't know about you but I find this interview very interesting. It's revealing about how Johnny thinks.
"They call it the "Ikemen Boom", but there aren't any boys in Johnny's that are just there because they are good looking."
