"Firstly I started to be Vegetarian for no reason.
Just an inspiration. But after some time, I wondered why I'm doing that.
So I started to do reserch and I knew about the environmental impact caused
from livestock industry, how they treat animals and how major malicious
cycle is connected on this planet."
Our new cover model is Maya Murofushi, model, actress and spokeswoman.
Maya is Japanese, but her cosmopolitan lifestyle keeps her constantly
busy travelling around the world. From Europe, where she has been spending
quite a lot of her time in the last few years, to the USA where she is
planning to move very soon, to Asia, of course. Maya is a very talkative
and friendly model, very different from the Maya we had in mind when we
first saw her pictures.
We had the chance to shoot Maya on a very dark and cloudy October day
in Tokyo (one of the few cloudy days in October, and it was waiting for
), and to get to know Maya Murofushi better, her ideas, her goals
in life. Read on for the interview, and do not forget to browse through
photo gallery here on Adversus.
How long have you been modeling and how did you start?
Professionally I've been working as a model for about 2years and half.
My first job was in Siena, Italy where I used to live. I was scouted by
photographer on the street for an advertising campaign. Until then I always
wanted to become a singer, but that shooting changed my life. I realized
that how photography has this amazing aspect of artistic collaboration,
to create a masterpiece with all members by magic of light.
Your personal and professional ambitions are...
I'm shifting my career torwards acting more now. My ambition? Of course,
an Oscar winning. But since I've been doing a lot of seminar for environment/animal
issues, I would like to expand my contribution more as well.
Three words to describe yourself
Craziness, Expression, Universe
Your best quality is...
And a bad aspect of your personality?
I'm bad at organizing my schedule...
Studying. I read a lot. I love Philosophy, Astrophysics, Quantum theory
etc... Also I love training. I learn many dances like Ballet, Contemporary,
Jazz, Modern, Japanese traditional... Seriously, if I'm not doing this
job, I definitely would become a dancer. Also I learn Japanese sword fighting!
Oh and I love to sing, play the piano of course... both of my parents
are classical musicians.
Your favorite music?
Classical music is my core. I love all kind of music though, a good thing
is a good thing. But I must confess that I really love Jamiroquai.
You are a Vegan. Can you tell us something more about this choice?
Why, and how did it change your life, if it did?
Firstly I started to be Vegetarian for no reason. Just an inspiration.
But after some time, I wondered why I'm doing that. So I started to do
reserch and I knew about the environmental impact caused from livestock
industry, how they treat animals and how major malicious cycle is connected
on this planet." . Since then I was more resoluted what I do, and
started to do seminars in front of people. And yes, it changed completely
my life. I became ten thousand times more active, positive and no-sickness.
I never go to hospital, never taken any medicine since then. So I never
want to go back to the old days. I became Vegan about 2 years ago, and
I find mysef just, perfect.
The craziest thing you have ever done in your life
When I was in Italy, I was really drunk with my housemate, and we started
to empty the entire bottle of Jagermeister at 9 in the morning (after
a long night of drinking). After that, we started to... oh no, I can't
tell you more here...
And the most embarassing moment of your life?
I really love Chopin's piano concerto. And one day in my living room I
was acting like conductor while I was listening to it.(Oh, my father is
a conductor by the way) And when the music ended, I realized that girl
from next house has been watching me all the time there. Oh...
What attracts you in a man?
Integrity, dignity as human-being, and intellectuality.
What do you like the most in your body?
I guess my legs;-)
Flat shoes or high heels?
Actually both. I always carry alternative in my bag.
Because I have to attend to a lot of party or events, also I want to be
used to high heels always, but yet I don't want to be too tired...
