Comedian and actor Cha Kato, 68, recently married a 23-year-old woman unaffiliated with the Tokyo celebrity scene recently, Shukan Post reported this week. The couple apparently registered their wedding in June. Kato divorced his previous wife in 2003 and had battled health problems until a few years ago, but friends of the actor say he is fine now.
Shukan Post reported that his new wife is a Hiroshima native, describing her as a “classic Japanese beauty.” Reports also suggest the couple had not been dating long before the marriage, despite a nearly 45-year age gap. Friends of Kato told the magazine that he wanted to avoid a headline-grabbing wedding.© Japan Today
