11 Mar – In an immediate response from the massive earthquake and tsunami that has hit Japan in the past few hours, a strange development in the Twitterverse is a high number of Indonesian well-wishers posting their concerns for Japanese pornstar Maria Ozawa.
A simple search on the popular social media revealed that the most recent tweets bearing her name are all in the Indonesian language, ranging from "I hope you are okay" to "Please protect Maria Ozawa" and "Save Maria Ozawa", with some mention of other famous AV models as well from the island nation.
Of French-Canadian and Japanese ancestry, the 25-year-old beauty, often called 'the perfect woman in porn' due to her uncommon exotic looks, has gained notoriety in Indonesia after Maxima Pictures signed her in an Indonesian comedy called "Menculik Miyabi" in 2009, which incensed the authorities in the Islamic republic who vowed to bar her from entering the country.
She reportedly had to complete the movie in Tokyo and had the plot of the movie changed.
Her most recent film, "Hantu Tanah Kusir" was secretly shot in Jakarta and Bali and was released 25 November 2010. It is still playing in a few screens at the time of writing.
With the release of a provocative trailer and a behind-the-scenes video featuring her in black underwear, "Hantu Tanah Kusir" has also secured release in Malaysia, although only at one screen – Kota Kinabalu's Growball Cinemax in Sabah, East Malaysia.
A Singaporean release is not known at the time of publishing.
