The actor said that he would 'rather spend time doing meaningful activities than earning praise for his appearance'¯

Taiwanese-Japanese actor Takeshi Kaneshiro is not the least bothered by netizens' comments on his 'aging looks'¯ after his recent photos were published.

'Rather than spending time and money to earn compliments for my appearance, why not spend that effort on contributing to the society?'¯ said Takeshi in response to recent reports on his looks.

Nailing an airline endorsement deal reportedly worth NT$30 million (approximately S$1.26 million), Takeshi recently travelled to Japan and France where the commercial was shot at. The actor returned to Taiwan last month and wrapped things up with a final scene in the picturesque Taitung County.

In the final scene, Takeshi was seen riding a bicycle through the fields. The actor was said to be in such good spirits that he continued riding the bicycle even after the director was satisfied with the take.

As it was his first visit to Taitung, the 39-year-old also grabbed the opportunity to visit the local restaurants with the crew to indulge in the county's specialty dishes.

Good on you Takeshi. It's good to embrace life and to age naturally. Be a good person and contribute positively to society.

That's my Takeshi! This is why I've always liked the guy. He looks good for his age. A lot better than most actors.

He doesn't look that bad. I don't know why people are ragging on him. He looks good for his age!

Those people should give him a break. Who doesn't age?? He's a HUMAN after all. And for someone turning 40, he still looks good alright.

You go man! Inner beauty and class.

Gracious come-back, and totally helps put aging into perspective.

Esp in the shallow entertainment society where everyone is regularly getting their regular botox shots and whatever ps necc, acting, trying way too hard and pretending to be 25 when they're already pushing 60 (and claiming officially to be 55 sometimes)

Denial in the form of trying hard and resisting, is the worst way to approach the natural process of age.

Stop picking on Jackie Chan! Or was it Andy Lau? Or Aaron Kwok? Or Kevin Cheung?

OK, stop picking on the entire HK male celebrity population! Now that should cover everybody.

She was talking about George Clooney.

But seriously, what's your deal with HK male actors anyway? Your passive aggressive comments about their age are getting old (pun intended).

About Kaneshiro: still hot.
