“I’m very worried about how the movie is received. Of course I want it to do well. I hope that people won’t be disappointed watching me in my daily life, taking dancing lessons. They might feel that I’ve fallen off my pedestal. I don’t know. People think I’m some kind of fashion icon, always perfect; but that’s not always the case. What I would like is for the audience to say ‘Fashion is cool!’ at the end of the movie. Because how I live my life—with lightness and without pretension.”
