Meet Rila Fukushima: The Model Who Would Be Robin To Wolverine’s Batman

Rila Fukushima

Rila Fukushima remembers the day she crossed over from full-time model into the acting world. It was her final audition with Hugh Jackman, after years of pursuing the part of Yukio in The Wolverine, but something big was in her way: “The Gay Pride Parade was happening on Fifth Avenue, and I needed to cross to get to the audition place. There were so many people!” Fukushima recalled when VH1 asked her how she got her start.

After the audition, she faced another awkward challenge. “I wasn’t sure how I should call him. I’m Japanese, and we never use first names. So I said, ‘Thank you so much, it was such a pleasure to meet you Mr. Hugh Jackman.’ He said, don’t call me Mr., you can just call me Hugh.’ And I said, ‘Yes, sir!’ ”

Nope, the cheerful, enthusiastic young woman we spoke to on the phone hardly matches the fierce warrior chick she portrays on screen. She’s more interested in inviting us for her personalized tour of Tokyo than in showing off her sword. Come to think of it, she doesn’t sound much like a stereotypical fashion model, either, though she’s been in the business for 10 years.

After starting in Japan and doing some editorial shoots for British magazines, Fukushima says a New York agency came calling and asked her to move here. But things didn’t work out as well as she’d hoped, and in 2011, she moved back to Tokyo. “I tried to do some work, but I was too short. Asian models can’t do catwalk a lot. In one fashion show, there’s only one or two Asian girls on the catwalk every season.” To be clear, she wasn’t exactly NOT working — Rila’s face is all over the place in ads and editorial. And you can see her in this Lenny Kravitz video.

Sofia Vergara & Manolo: Sushi Lunch

Screen Shot 2013-05-17 at 9.07.27 AM

Sofia Vergara traveled to Japan and China last week – bringing along her fiancé Nick Loeb and her son Manolo. The Modern Family actress shared plenty of photos from the trip – including one with Manolo, 21, and a restaurant chef. For one snapshot she writes: Amazing lunch in Tokyo! I dream of sushi too!!!

Last month in an interview with Good Morning America – Vergara confirmed she has already frozen her eggs.

“I just wanted to plan ahead,” the 40-year-old said. “My boyfriend Nicky is three years younger than me, and he’s never had a son. I have my son, Manolo, so it’s not an emergency for me to have another kid, but for Nicky, he’s never had a baby.”

Revealing she consulted a fertility specialist about freezing her eggs – she stated, “Nothing happens that naturally anymore. I wanted to take advantage of science. Why not?”

Asked how far along the process is she replied, “Oh, I took them out already! They’re in the refrigerator. Hopefully, they’ll be fresh by the time I use them.”
