Freida Pinto Covers 'Grazia India' October 2011

Freida Pinto graces the cover of Grazia India‘s October issue.

Here’s what the 26-year-old Indian actress had to share with the mag:

On life outside of Hollywood: “Did I say my life was wonderful? As glamorous as it seems – putting on your make-up and high heels – I think the moment you go home and slip into your pajamas, that’s reality, everything else is suspended.”

On fame: “I think it’s a curiosity issue. ‘How did she get so lucky?’ At the end of the day it can’t just be about luck – you have to know how to use that luck – I don’t go about thinking I’m going to get lucky every single time.”

On being selective with her work: “I’ve said no to quite a few offers, even though my agents have suggested otherwise; contrary to rumors that I take up everything that comes my way.”

    Is she really an Indian? Most of the indians i have seen look very ugly.Freida is too hot to be an indian

  • yum

    slingo lambert!

  • loserbunny

    the only type of Indians who would call Freida “ugly” would be the jealous kind. She’s undeniably beautiful !

  • k

    Frieda Pinto is considered ugly in India because if you google the Bollywood actresses of India you will understand why

    Aishwarya Rai
    Priyanka Chopra
    Kareena Kapoor
    Katrina Kaif

  • @k

    I Know south asians in general prefer only white actress.freida is prettier than all those bollywood actresses

  • Creed

    Indians are some of the most prejudiced people ever.
    They dont like Frida because
    a) she has dark skin and only fair skin is considered beautiful
    b) she is a catholic and NOT a hindu like all of their other fugly bollywood stars.

  • majka

    In my opinion Freida is prettier. Their faces are like candies. Sweet but I’ve got used to them fast, they become ordinary. Pinto’s face is mysertious. On every picture she can look different. And she smiles lot, that is why people just like her.

  • Ka simply amazing

    Average like any india womans and her skin like all india people .just you can say that

  • http://dad slig o lambert ^______^cute

  • http://dad slig o lambert ^______^cute

  • Jojo

  • Robert

    Still Beautiful amazing.

  • Yo-Landi

    What a BEAUTY

  • ellie’

    Now that’s one beauty…

  • Zoe2

    I like the way she dresses. Always elegant! Never trashy.

  • longchamp

    @Andrew Stewart #2 – your Indian friends are utterly envious; their assessment is biased.

    es todo, nada mas.

    she’s nothing less than stunning. no amount of denial changes that. similarly, no amount of denial makes the naysayers prettier.

  • Sofia

    I googled the names you mentioned and Freida beats them by a mile. Those girls have scary beaky noses and bug eyes.

  • pallab

    I am from India but i love her,she is much more beautiful and elegant than the bolly stars ..

  • Monkey

    hey people beauty is objective… some people find her beautiful, some people don’t, everyone is entitled to their opinion… I think it’s extreme to call her ugly because she clearly is not ugly and it’s stupid to compare her aishwarya rai just because she’s indian. I mean its like comparing all hollywood actresses to angelina!

  • thatsit

    Actually out of those you mentioned only Katrina Kaif can make me take a second look. The first two are your typical looks considered beautiful in India i.e. green eyes, round face with no definition, too much makeup.

    Freida is a natural beauty and I love her bone structure. Her beauty is striking and unique. She is not forgettable that’s for sure. she doesn’t look like every other Indian actress. there’s no one like her and this is why she’s become a big star outside of India. I’m an American and I love her look. Aishwarya Rae to me is not that beautiful in all honesty. she has a typical Indian look.

  • dilip

    this girl advertise herself in magazines..her face looks like a 35 old so big compared to her body …even news readers look so beautiful in india..

  • Mr you

    She is above common Hollywood actresses but not stunning as aishwarya or shilpa shetty. come to north India and you’ll see how many pretty girls there are. Her face is too bony and she is too skinny. She is too hyped by westerners.

  • Handsome

    She is beautiful..i’m indian too.. In india only fair skin consider beautiful, most of all bollywood actresses are fair..

  • Armando

    @Bustin Bieber:

    She’s of portuguese descent :) There’s a whole community of latin descendants in India thanks to the portuguese ! Viva Frida!

  • Serafina

    Pinto’s face is mysterious. On every picture she can look different. And she smiles lot, that is why people just like her.

  • http://ayeshaMMJ ashystar

    she has a very common Indian face.. You can find tones and tones of Indian girls 100 times better than her.. Its not about her colour okay.. her features are just not so nice and plz ppl for God sake don’t compare her to aishwarya or kareena they are far more beautiful than Freida Pinto..shes nothing infront of them Btw everyone has their own likes and dislikes so stop judging us, we Indias don’t believe in colour thingy thats what white ppl do

  • say what

    She is considered ugly because her features are like gorillas! Her look is nothing like exotic just because her lips are big! Adriana lima is exotic. Talking about dark Indians, priyanka chopra and sushmita sen are beautiful and exotic. So yes she looks very ordinary here in India.

  • les

    Sofia and others saying the dark skin crap it a troll all over the sites defending this ugly pinto girl. She says non-stop racist things about indian in order to sniff up pinto ass. Loser has been idenetified by many people.They pretend to be non-indian and seem to know everything about aishwarya rai and other beautiful indian actresses.

  • les

    LOL , they are jealous and wrong? idiot its called taste

  • Vita

    @Mr you: Actaully Freida is very,very average for Hollywood too, and doesn’t have acting talent at all. She is kinda fading. Have you seen how stunning the likes of Angelina Jolie ,Catherine Zeta-Jones, Megan Fox are? Holy-Moly. So beautiful. Scarlett Johansson , Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman, Jessica Biel, Jesscia Albs are breathtakingly beautiful too. Freida doesn’t come near them at all. Most guys would still choose them over Freida.
    Bollywood actresses are muc prettier then Freida too. Some can act unlike her.
