Japanese Actress Gives Newspaper Interview

Among the prominent figures of 1923 was Sessue Hayakawa, a Japanese actor, who had made a name for himself in Hollywood and across Europe. His wife, Tsuru Aoki, sometimes featured in his films, although her appearances were contingent upon her husband’s need.

While supporting her husband, Aoki also expressed views about the emancipation of women in a newspaper interview. She stated, “I do not think women are better than men… but I think they can do things just as well if they are given the chance.”

Aoki lived a transcontinental lifestyle, occasionally journeying to Europe to join her husband, who was engaged in the production of films for foreign producers. She decided to leave their home in Hollywood behind, possibly intending to sell it.
