Who can be romantically linked to Ken Watanabe...and how closely?

(e.g. Ken Watanabe)

(e.g. Kevin Bacon)

 

Already extremely tall by Japanese standards, he gained a good amount of weight (about 20 pounds) to be an even more imposing presence for his role as Katsumoto in "The Last Samurai."

 

Was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in 1989. Since then he had fallen ill only once in 1994, but is now a fully recovered actor.

 

I`m not a big star in Japan. I`m an actor. I have a very normal life. Four days a week, I cook at home. A star doesn`t do that.

 

I do pay attention to the way the script envisages the world and how that view is conveyed through the roles, as well as what the director wants to express.

Godzilla (2014)

A king's arrival is never silent, The king will rise

The world's most famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
