Biography Timeline


Takeuchi was born on April 1, 1980 in Urawa, Saitama, Japan. She was "discovered" during spring break in Harajuku after junior high school.


Takeuchi was married to Shidō Nakamura II (who had co-starred with Takeuchi in the film Be With You) from May 10, 2005, until their divorce on February 29, 2008. She had a son with Nakamura who was born in November 2005. Prior to the couple's divorce, Nakamura had apologized for a drunk driving incident where he was with actress Aya Okamoto and later seen with actress Saki Takaoka. After the drunk driving incident, Takeuchi reportedly moved to live in her management office shortly before filing for divorce in October 2006.


In 2010, Takeuchi appeared on the science fiction American TV serial FlashForward, in two episodes (as a character portrayed in five). Director Michael Nankin called her "Japan's answer to Audrey Hepburn". Takeuchi's dialogue was in Japanese, but she said the experience caused her to make it a goal to master English, as she wished she had been able to communicate better with other the cast members and crew.

Her performances in Yomigaeri (2003), Be With You (2004) and Spring Snow (2005) were recognized by the Japanese Academy Awards.
