Actress Kyoko Fukada, 28, appeared at a men-only preview screening this week for her upcoming film, “Yoake no Machi De” (In the City of Dawn), in Tokyo. The film is based on a novel by popular writer Keigo Higashino, 53, and deals with the issue of infidelity.
Fukada took to the stage following the screening to speak with the male audience about the film’s theme. She commented, “I’d like to avoid infidelity. I don’t want to marry someone like that, and I don’t want to be anyone’s mistress.”
She also surveyed the audience, asking if there was anyone present who desired an affair. About 20 men raised their hands. “If you do end up cheating,” Fukada advised, “please keep it a secret.”
She assured fans that she will only ever commit infidelity on the big screen.
In the movie, directed by Setsuro Wakamatsu, Fukada plays an office worker who starts a torrid affair with a much older businessman (Goro Kishitani). The businessman’s wife (Tae Kimura) slowly starts to realize what’s going on.
“Yoake no Machi De” will be released nationwide on Oct 8.© Japan Today
