SMAP’s Tsuyoshi Kusanagi (36) said it was the best day of his life when a member of Japan’s Imperial family congratulated him in person on January 20 in Tokyo, reports Daily Sports and Sankei Sports.

 

It has been reported Her Majesty the Empress Michiko watched Kusanagi’s movie “僕と妻の1778の物語 (Boku to Tsuma no 1778 no Monogatari)” with the pop star and actress Yuko Takeuchi at a theatre yesterday, and had a chat with him afterwards.

“She complimented me on the movie and my acting.  It was the best moment I’ve had since I was born.  I was so happy!”  Kusanagi said.

 

It has been reported Her Majesty had already known a few things about Kusanagi and asked him questions like, “you must be very busy working in SMAP”, and, “how long have you been studying Korean?”.

 

Kusanagi was still overwhelmed when he had talked to the press after his meeting.

“She was very kind and warm-hearted, and she makes you feel at ease.  I have to tell the others (in SMAP),” he said.

 

His co-star Takeuchi had said she was equally excited.

“It was like a dream, I can’t believe it really happened.  I feel extremely privileged to have had this opportunity,” she said.

 

The two had also asked Her Majesty if they could shake her hand.

“I don’t want to wash my hands now,” Takeuchi said.
