Freida Pinto is Globe Gorgeous

Freida Pinto is Globe Gorgeous

Slumdog Millionaire sweetheart Freida Pinto is featured in a new 50s-style pinup shot for Vanity Fair.

“Bombay (now known as Mumbai) is literally the third character in the film, and a very important one,” says Freida, a 24-year-old former model. “The most wonderful thing about [director Danny Boyle] is he’s not focused on poverty only. He shows that Bombay does rise above it.”

When asked about Slumdog‘s auditioning process, Freida said, “Danny said that when he first saw me on tape he pretty much knew he was going to cast me, but we needed to go through auditioning to be sure. So it took me six months of auditioning to get the part. By the fourth month I started getting obsessed with the role. Every time I met my friends I would read lines from the script!”

  • zanessafannumba1

    ahhhh shes sooo cooool

    shes gonna make it big in hollywood

    love her!

  • ok

    she looks good but i don’t think her acting was that good. I guess she needs to do more movies. Also i don’t understand why they only use her and the other guy to promote the film. Where are the child actors? Her role wasn’t that big. hmmm.. i guess people prefer looks over talent.

  • Mel

    She’s really beautifull and im glad an indian actress like herself made it to hollywood. She’s far better than ashwarya rai and she knows how to dress. I really like her and she seems really sweet and not snobbish like the other indian actresses.

  • zoe

    she’s so pretty and i couldnt recognize her. her waist is really photoshoped though…and i agree tht this looked like a katy perry photo.

  • Luv her

    she looks great

    great to see another beauty shine

  • dia from mirza

    Shes just wonderful !!! Please Mel , wait before you know her better !! Don’t compareher with aishwarya rai , who is a talented woman , her shyness , must be wong interpreted , she looks confident , but shes very shy and introverty !! Freida is newcomer born from a rich family , she will show soon , who she really is , you will know !!!

  • Mami

    Ummmmmmmmm why is her skin so light? She doesn’t look like that! :(

  • Amanda

    so photoshopped!

  • welll

    Don’t be so quick to defend Aishwarya. Maybe Freida is just really a sweet and happy person growing up in a rich family, if that is true. Not all rich kids a brat. Maybe she has a good upbringing.

  • Melissa

    She is so freaking gorgeous! Hopefully she becomes the next big thing in Hollywood and we see her in more films. I want to see more diversity. There are so many exotic, drop dead gorgeous and talented women in acting. I just wish they would get more screen time.

    Who says Freida Pinto is rich. Going by their Bombay addresses, Aishwarya’s childhood home is in a pretty upmarket area, Freida’s isn’t. But Freida displays a far greater sense of self. Aishwarya’s always putting on airs and accents, like she doesn’t know who she wants to be.
