Rinko Kikuchi, who won an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of a sexually precocious schoolgirl in “Babel,” insists that Japanese actresses don’t have to look weak. The 26-year-old, who was virtually unknown a year ago, said she grew up wondering why Japanese actresses rarely made it big overseas. “But then, I’ve been told it’s because Japanese actresses look weak and diluted on celluloid–they’re often uncomfortable about coming on strong,” Kikuchi told the Japan Times. AFP reports.
