Japanese Girls Send Best Fanmail

Tuesday, February 9, 2010 17:31 GMT

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Japanese girls send the best fanmail.

Just ask Jason Earles, who plays Miley Cyrus’ older brother, Jackson Stewart, on the Disney Channel series Hannah Montana.

Over the years, he’s gotten endless piles of mail from devoted fans, but his favorite letters are the ones from Japan.

That’s because he thinks Japanese girls have the most “beautiful, precise printing” and their notes are always decorated with all sorts of doodles, stickers, and pictures.

Earles also thinks their broken English is “adorable,” and always gets excited by fanmail postmarked from Japan.

The actor keeps nearly every letter that fans send him – even the stranger ones. He once received fanmail from prison.

Earles says the enthusiasm from screaming teenagers is something he’ll never get used to.

He’s seen fans cry, hyperventilate, and even faint upon meeting him, and says, “I’m so not cool enough for a reaction like that. That’s Jonas Brothers stuff.”
