She's a cover girl for a fashion magazine with a circulation of about 350,000 and the movies she stars in premiere one after another--model-actress Mirei Kiritani's star is rising fast.
"Besides the modeling and acting, she's just a normal girl," says her manager. And Kiritani says she spends her days off just like she writes about on her blog, "Hanging around the house." Dressed in sweat pants, she goes back and forth from bed to couch, plays video games and watches DVDs.
Coordinating work and school is tough, but Kiritani enjoys her student life. For fun she plays video games with her classmates in the cafeteria between classes.
"This time with my friends is when I can be the real me. It refreshes me," Kiritani says.
