AKB48’s Atsuko Maeda, 20, who recently announced that she would be graduating from the megapopular group, this week received an award as “Foreign Cinema’s Best Supporter.”
The award was presented to her by the Foreign Film Importer-Distributors Association of Japan.
Maeda said she sees a lot of foreign films and often records her thoughts on her blog. She said she often views movies on a portable DVD player during makeup before performances, and can watch as many as five foreign films in one week. Maeda said "Hugo" was the last foreign film she saw.© Japan Today
