12 Hollywood Celebrities Who Have Made Ads in Japan

Anne Hathaway

The Princess Diaries, a tale of an ugly duckling turned royal beauty, made its way into Japanese movie theaters in 2002. Shortly afterward, the film's star, Anne Hathaway, made her way into Japanese living rooms via commercials for the Lux line of hair and beauty products. Hathaway joins a lofty list of Lux lovelies, which includes Catherine Zeta-Jones, Penelope Cruz, and Charlize Theron. Hathaway's spots trade on her princess rep, with the actress dressed in ethereal white and appearing to float through life as weightless as her styling mousse.
