Miyuki Hatoyama, the wife of Japan’s Prime Minister-elect, Yukio Hatoyama (couple pictured above), is a lifestyle guru, a macrobiotics enthusiast, an author of cookery books, a retired actress, a divorcee, and a model for clothes she makes herself, including a skirt made from Hawaiian coffee sacks. But there is more, some of it out of this world. She has travelled to the planet Venus - and she was once abducted by aliens. ”While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus,” she has explained and went on : “It was a very beautiful place, and it was very green.” When the new Japanese first lady related her adventures to her then (note : THEN) husband, he told her that it was probably just a dream. The 62-year-old also knew Tom Cruise in a former incarnation – when he was Japanese – and is now looking forward to making a Hollywood movie with him. I didn’t think it was possible that any woman could (almost) make Cherie Blair appear sensible.
