  • Native name: 東出昌大
  • Nationality: Japanese

Masahiro Higashide is a Japanese actor and model who won the Rookie of the Year at the 36th Japan Academy Prize in 2013 and the Sponichi Grand Prix Newcomer Award ("The Kirishima Thing") at the 67th Mainichi Film Awards in 2012.

Higashide graduated from Saitama Prefectural Asaka High School. He practiced kendo daily when he was young because his father is a kendo teacher. His father is also a cook of the Japanese cuisine.

He married Anne Watanabe on January 1, 2015. Their twin daughters were born in May 2016. Their son was born in November 2017.

Masahiro Higashide is a part of the first big Japanese entertainment scandal of the year 2020, where it revealed that he was in a secret relationship from 2017 with actress Erika Karata. Shūkan Bunshun revealed that Higashide had been having an extramarital affair with the actress since 2017 when his wife was pregnant with their third child. The report was later confirmed by his agency. The incident has caused Higashide to lose several endorsement deals.

As of July 31, 2020, he and Watanabe Anne are officially divorced.

Talent agency humanité terminates contract with Higashide Masahiro on Feb 14, 2022. The agency stated that since Jan 2020 they had tried their best to stand by him but his ill-considered actions last autumn led them to the difficult decision that they can no longer work together.
