Naomi Watanabe said in an interview:

I saw it and thought, ‘Oh, I might be curvy. Hahahahaha,’” she tells me through a translator. “It’s not that I love myself because I am fat. I just love who I am right now. Whatever body I have today, I like to embrace that. That’s my self love: Love yourself at whatever size you have today.”

“I’d love to make everyone laugh. Not just Japanese people,”

“In NYC, you have to fight every single day. You have to speak out and be vocal about what you want. In my opinion, in Japanese culture, when you say your point of view, people think you’re a snob or are bragging,” she says. “Here, everyone says what they want and are thinking.”

I didn’t grow up in the best environment. I turned to music and comedy to take my mind off my parents fighting. To break the silence or clear negative air, I would say something funny and make my parents laugh. That’s what got me hooked on it.”

When I make people laugh, it gives me joy. The feeling is something you can’t describe. It’s almost orgasmic,” she says.

When I laugh a little too loudly at her answer, she deadpans. “That felt good.”
