On September 5th, actress Ueto Aya was appointed as the official navigator for the upcoming movie ‘Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away‘ and attended a press conference to talk about it charms.
However, the most burning question of the reporters wasn’t related to the movie. After the recent indication of a rumored break-up between her and her rumored husband-to-be, EXILE’s HIRO, they wanted to get some kind of clarification. Knowing that they won’t get any clear confirmation that she’s together with HIRO, they just asked in general whether she’s still in a relationship and to their surprise she replied with a smile, “Yes, thank you.”
Of course this still leaves much room for interpretation, but at least she gave them something to keep the story alive.
Back to the movie, ‘Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away’ is going to open this year’s 25th Tokyo International Film Festival on October 20th and Ueto’s job is to make as many people as possible excited for it.
She commented, “It’s so exciting! I’ve seen this show in person, but I think this movie will be just as exciting for those who haven’t seen it yet as well as for those who’ve already seen it. The whole show was filmed from angles that the live audience can’t see and therefore it’s a different experience altogether.” She continued, “It’s very easy to understand and the music creates a modern and antique world. It felt like going to a very stylish café.”
Ueto finally appealed to everyone, “I hope everyone will be able to experience the force, the excitement, and lingering emotions when watching this show on screen.”
‘Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away’ is slated for a nationwide release on November 9th.
