Sawajiri Erika suffering from multiple personalities?



On May 15th, it was revealed actress Sawajiri Erika was on hiatus since mid-May due to poor health. Allegedly, she is suffering from symptoms close to that of multiple personality disorder, and told by her doctor to cease activities.

Since she has made a hole in her career, it’d be proper Sawajiri be criticized, however, these circumstances are different. According to a movie insider, “Lately she’s been strange. At one moment she’s highly emotional, the next she’s depressed… I thought maybe it was multiple personality disorder.” In the movie Helter Skelter, Sawajiri plays a model named Ririko who received plastic surgery on her entire body. In the movie, not only is Sawajiri to reveal her assumed F cup breasts, but she is also to take part in an extreme sex scene and a lesbian scene.


According to the same source, “She was so hoisted to the work she even said things to Director Ninagawa like ‘Let me do it!’ She wouldn’t allow herself to compromise her role.” Sawajiri is after all the type who takes the image of her roles, and make them posses her.

It seems like Sawajiri has captured Ririko’s “darkness”, and now even rumors of her acting strange have arisen. According to an eye-witness, “Just a little before I saw her in Tokyo, in Roppongi, at a membership bar dead drunk. She was sitting alone at the counter, asking people she didn’t even know “Hey, could you get me a drink~” with a coaxing voice. When she got the drinks she didn’t even say thank you, she just dazedly stared at specks on the glass and then continued to drink. I didn’t get it.”

According to Ichibu Shuukanshi, Sawajiri once arrived hungover at filming, making co-star Terajima Shinobu angry. However, there seems like there’s another reason Terajima was angry. Another movie insider reports, “During filming, Director Ninagawa barely directed Sawajiri. She was almost crushed with pressure and anxiety. The two of them are deeply bonded but, from a third point of view, the filming spot looked tense.”

Director Ninagawa herself made a comment concerning Sawajiri the 15th, “Many times reality and fiction are linked, and she’s experienced something where the boundary lines have become blurred. It’s inevitable she’ll need some rest.” Ninagawa also revealed that Sawajiri stated “I can’t escape from Ririko’s character.” According to an insider, at the end of last week Sawajiri got a medical exam from a doctor, and although her ailment was not revealed, there’s no doubt her mind and body are experiencing a breakdown.
