Gorgeous girl. Don’t like the outfit on her but still she is so pretty.

Rula Jebreal should be in movies. Wow. She is hot. I thought she was African-American before. Looks a little like Selita Ebanks. Gorgeous.

Ugh Hollywood sucks. She doesn’t even look anywhere near Palestinian, there aren’t any Palestinian girls that look Indian. Seriously.. the Palestinians at my university have dark hair, blonde hair, red hair, brunette hair, green eyes, blue eyes, hazel eyes, honey brown eyes, some are tan, some are pale.. but none of them look anywhere like Freida Pinto, which makes the movie unrealistic.

I’m not watching. They attempted casting someone they thought looks Palestinian enough to deceive the American/non-Arab public into believing Palestinians actually look Indian..

BTW Indians are a more beautiful than Palestinians

I halfly agree with Hanni. I know palestian girls and they look almost europeans with a touch of persian and/or arabic look. In another word, for me they just look exotic. Unfortunately at the end of the day, an actor must be allowed to play any nationalities since today even a british is not necessarily white but can almost be of any skin color. So I’m glad when a director casts an indian to play a palestian character. It shows how close to the reality he is.

Between, Freida is simply gorgeous.

@hanni:
Freida was picked because she looked like Rula Jebreal on whose book Miral is based on. FYI Rula is Palestinian and Freida looks a lot like her. Please be a little more informed before you shoot off your mouth and show your ignorance.

Anthony Quinn who was Spanish and Irish was fabulous as Zorba the Greek and Meryl Streep was excellent as a Polish woman during WWII and also as the Danish Isak Dinesen. Why can’t an Indian actress play a Palestinian?

@hanni: Are u kidding?? Rula jebreal(who also palestinian) is dark skinned.In palestinians come in all color.Stop being so ignorant

She is very pretty

Freida Pinto Dont looks palestinian! she may be dark skinned but Dont have the string features the Palestinian have!! she looks south asian..with yellow undertone dark skin.

She is very pretty

Both Rula and Freida are beautiful girls. Nice to see some South Asian/Middle Easterns girls in movies, for a change, in strong roles.

@barbie: Palestinian is West Asian.

@Cornus: Ignorance? The majority OF PALESTINIANS don’t look like Rula Jebreal, I was speaking of a general perspective. The majority don’t, Palestinians do come in all shapes and sizes, I’m VERY aware of that (don’t you understand what I wrote? looks like I’m not the one being ignorant, hahahahaha) however I was speaking of the majority of Palestinians’ appearances and how they immensely differ from Fredi Pinto’s appearance and how Palestinians in Western films are ALWAYS (the majority of the time) portrayed by dark-skinned Indians.

@hanni: So your logic is Rula should have been played by someone who looks like the majority of Palestinians? For the first time a Hollywood director get the casting perfectly right because Freida looks a lot like Rula and Rula is Palestinian. …….you make absolutely no sense.
