Freida Pinto: 'Trishna' Special Screening!

Freida Pinto: 'Trishna' Special Screening!

Freida Pinto is ravishing in red while attending a special screening of her film Trishna at the Silverscreen Theater at the Pacific Design Center on Sunday (July 8) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 27-year-old actress recently told Metro that she almost quit acting before getting her big break in Slumdog Millionaire.

“I wanted my first project to be something I’d never regret, so I’m grateful I held out for as long as I did,” Freida said. “That film changed everyone’s life who was involved. I was going to give acting a go until I was 25 and, if I hadn’t made it work by that age, I’d do something else. I had moments of ‘I’ve had enough’ but I’m glad I had people around me who told me to hold on to my dream.”

FYI: Freida is wearing a Raoul dress and Roger Vivier shoes.

    LOVE FREIDA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Beautiful. Keep the dream going.

  • ONLY INDIANS HATE FREIDA

    As an Indian Fan of Freida I just want everyone to know ITS ONLY INDIANS WHO MAKE RACIST/NEGATIVE COMMENTS ABOUT FREIDA ALL OVER INTERNET.If u read Comments in Prev Post(freida doing yoga/knight of Cups shooting) u would know that most of these disgusting Comments are Posted by few Indians using Multiple FAKE IDS to make it look like many ppl hate her

  • Stunna

    Her foundation is way too light here. But she still looks amazing as usual. She’s super beautiful<3

  • Des

    She is meh, can’t compete with many gorgeous women in hollywood. Saw Trishna, if she wants to stay in movies, I suggests she takes some acting lessons!

  • Alteria Sham

    She is nothing but another Katrina Kaif. Anyone who is indian/brown will know what I mean. Both are fugly and bad actresses.

  • Ivy

    She looks fab. Simple and chic. Love that color on her. Indian skin looks so good in orange, hot pink and yellow.

  • Ivy

    @ONLY INDIANS HATE FREIDA: Correct.
    I had fun exposing them for the bigots they are. They are not so bright….so it was very easy.

  • Latina Fever

    She is no Penelope Cruz or Salma Hayek, it’s not happening.

  • 5ers

    Trishna was not a good movie, and Freida Pinto can’t act for shi t . Riz Ahmed was the only good actor. I mean if this director wanted to do Tess of the D’ubervilles, then he should have stuck to the original story. He should have casted the right ethnicities and everything and have it set in France. I would have loved Amanda Seyfreid in the role of Tess. She has those big expressive eyes and that innocent look about her.

  • Sonia

    @ONLY INDIANS HATE FREIDA:
    negative comment, you people are so protect of her. Like just if I say I don’t like her acting (which she hasn’t shown yet) is considered negative.
    I mean do only mix race people make negative comments on Kim Karadasin just because they think shes not talented?
    Its okay do defend her, but don’t go making racist comments on Indians cause instead of being above those rude commenters, you just being one of them

  • Sonia

    anyways
    she looks lovely, I love the color of the dress but the dress itself is quite shape-less
    also hey look. I’m an Indian and guess what no rude comment! Not all Indians post dumb stuff. I’m not fond of her solely because so far as an actress she hasn’t proved anything, don’t like her personality from what I’ve seen in interviews but I do think she is pretty, I adore her bone structure

  • FLAMINGO

    @Des: I agree. She is pretty, but very plain. It’s weird that you can have a pretty face but not be attractive.

    As for the acting, she is a mess. In Planet of the Apes, I kept wondering how she got the part. Her acting was horrid. She’s one of those actors that are good in one one style of movies. Her boyfriend DEV PATEL on the other hand is a superb actor!!

  • FLAMINGO

    @Sonia: Pretty face horrible actress. She is only taking up space a la JESSICA ALBA. People will forget about her soon because not only she is a bad actress… She doesn’t take off her clothes, so there goes her male following!!

  • darik

    wtf, jessica alba is hot, freida looks like a butt compared to her. you can’t compare a pile of stinking crap(freida) to a diamond (jessica). infact I would say that she is like a low rent, cheap, affordable alba lol.

  • Elena

    Looks like a curry puff here!

  • Mitra

    @Sonia:
    This person is on india forums and claimed that Freida has a bigger role than Natalie Portman and Cate Blanchet in Knights of Cups lol. Nope, Natalie has been filiming for many weeks with Christian Bale, same with Cate. I won’t be suprised if Freida is not shown in the trailer for that movie when it comes out. This person has a major fixation with Freida Pinto, its funny .LOL, they think she is bigger then Natalie Portman and Cate Blanchet, who are both world famous actresses. Do you really think that Terrance Malick will give Freida the big part and give the cameos to Cate and Natalie?

  • Priya

    This is really sad and immature. The fact that this one person is still writing so many comments, giving themselves many fake names,inciting fights with random strangers over a c list actress is just plain sad. I hope that they go visit a pyschologist for this. They sound mental and out of control. Just stop it. It’s enough.

  • Ivy

    @5ers: Tess of D’urbervilles is set in England and written by Thomas Hardy, English novelist and poet.

  • zed

    movie was a disaster. pinto is not gifted in acting at all. she also needs to stop playing the pity card and keep dissing bollywood all the time. she is a joke and her rise to fame is a la kim kardashian. we still don’t know much about pintos past and there are no pics of her when she was younger or anything. weird.

  • ko Tatasugi

    I saw this movie.It is really a disaster movie.I dont know who is the script writer but he is the culprit for ruining hardy’s creation.Tess of the Durbervile is my all time favorite novel.I was in high school and still can remember crying like a baby for Tess.

    I love the color on pinto not the cut.She has really short neck and the dress enhance that.Her smile is really cute.

    I am regular on justjared and I have seen some/one people here trolling under only freida pinto’s post for a long time.They try to start fight with indian by calling them racist,calling all indian actresses ugly .Although I have seen many hateful comments on freida like every other celebrity I dont think it is justified to use the tag”Indian hater”. These people who are saying such thing are actually spreading racism.So many people requested them to stop but this is still going on.I think they are dealing their own frustration by this non stop circus and sad but true by fighting with them we will just fulfill their mission. so I will request people just to avoid them.We are here to give our opinion on celebrity based on our own taste.Lets do it and go back to our work.

  • kk

    Acting was her dream but she never took acting lesson.No theater,acting school,editing or screening..If acting was your dream then wont you prepare yourself ?She always say scripted text.Stupid.

  • claire

    short neck flat chest masculine jawline.UGG
    Smile is cute though.She is tiny and I love that

  • Manish

    @kk: There are even Bollywood actresses such as rani mukerjhi who have studied acting. This troll likes to always put down the indian actress, call them ugly, talentless just because Freida is not popular in india. They are on so many webstites like Pinkvilla.

  • Nandini

    @Ivy:

    I have seen your comments on some previous post may be two or three months earlier here.You said indian are racist clasict.They dont appreciate her because of her skin color.I have seen many indian actresses as example deepika padukone bipasha basu priyanaka chopra kajole all darker then her and very very famous.I am confused why are saying continuously indian hate freida because she is dark.If that is true why there are so many darker actor in india?

    Agian some one mentioned freida is cristian so indian hates her.
    Shahrukh khan salman khan amir khan genelia desuza imran khanjeculine farnandez katrina kaif all are non hindu’s and they all are very well accepted in india.Infact most of the leading man leading ladies in the indian film industry are non hindu’s.So classist claim is also not true.

    Why should indian hate her?What has she done to one billion indian so that they have a personal hate against her?

    Why should indian feel jealous of her?Padma laxmi,ujjala raut(Victoria secret model, monikanga dutta(Victoria secret model),Laxmi menon(super model) they all are mostly in western market and are very highly respected and appreciated in india.Indian appreciate their work.I remember freida was awarded as most beautiful on indian people magazine version recently.If they are jealous of her why they would describe her most beautiful ?

    Who is the bigot one here?Who is the not so bright one here?

    Anyway I will follow ko’s advice.Take Care

  • potel

    kam wali bai is back..

  • priitha

    Her career in going down.Its sad.When she became famous after Slumdog I thought she has got potential.She got some great scope with immortal Rise Miral.How ever first two were blockbluster she was criticized severely for her acting.In the mean time some great young actresses made it to big.name cristin,jenifer,emma,amanda.Its been a year Immortal and RIse came out and I don’t her signing big budget film.Her latest film desert dancer is also independent film with no big name.Terrance mallik movie she is playing short side role like isabela and one other latin girl.I dont see her winning any award or catching attention with these two movie.It is so hard to make a position in hollywood.Its even harder more for a color women.She has got zero acting capability.I feel sad I was expecting her to be the first indian hollywood superstar.Clearly it is not happening.

  • Ivy

    @Nandini
    I have never ever said Freida is hated for her color. It’s those people who hate her because she looks like a poor peasant, a slum dweller , maid who I have called bigots. Do you see comment below you? That’s what I am talking about. And the saddest part is India has the world’s largest peasant population and slum dwellers.
    BUT it is also true that Indians worship fair skin. Skin whitening creams are the biggest selling creams in India.
    Everyone should check out the Fair and Lovely cream ad on Youtube.

  • Ivy

    @claire:
    Freida has a defined jawline but it’s not masculine. Her face is too small to be called masculine. It’s Katrina and Kareena who have huge masculine jawline. But …yes, Freida does have a short neck. But who’s looking at the neck with a face like that? Her bust is fine. Big bust make you like a porn star.

  • claire

    @Ivy:

    Man her jawline is too wide for a women.It makes her head really big.Her face is not small its actually disproportionally big with her body.

    Big bust makes you look like porn star?

    Would you call hendirck(mad man star) a porn star?Ketty perry?Freida is as plain as a 8 year old school girl in bust and heap department.Not sexy at all.Eva longoria also had small bust but her small face and her proportion with bust and heaps makes her feminine.Freida on the otherwise with a big head short neck no bust no heaps look like joke.

  • Raj Kappor

    @claire: This person is just sniffing up Freida Pintos ass. Don’t argue with them. They are just some crazy loser. Would this person call Sofia Vergara a porn star? She has a big bust and most guys go nuts over her. What about Beyonce,she is known for her sexy curves. Is she a porn star too?No she is a repected entertainer and also hot . It’s obvious this person is an indian living in India. They seem to know nothing about Hollywood and their entertainers too but seem to know all the details about Bollywood. I wonder if they are lving in a shithouse over there. Just don’t fight with them. I doubt this person looks any better then these ‘porn stars’ like Sofia Vergara or Beyonce.

  • Ivy

    @Nandini
    I think the majority of visitors to Freida posts are Indians and most of them are appalled at the vile comments left by a few Indians…..(two at the most….maybe three) . That’s why those comments get low comment rating or even deleted. So no, most Indians who visit JJ to read about Freida and look at her pics are supportive of her. Some of us just outraged by the bigotry displayed by some Indians.

  • Raj Kappor

    @Nandini: Yes, I know Freida was chosen the most beautiful woman 2012 by People India . If they hate her so much why would they have chosen her? They hardly ever give her attention, and this was good attention. This should be a big deal for her, why does she still lie and trash India 24/7 . I don’t see the US version of People giving her that title, guess who won it this year? “Porn star’ Beyonce.

  • Jaggers

    @ko Tatasugi: I was hoping not to see any more of those abusive and racist comments about indians. I don’t think this troll even has read yours or mine comments. What they are saying is racist. They are constanly badmouthing a whole race of people over a celebrity, who is not even that important. This is considered racisim in North America. This person doesn’t get it. You really think North Americans will let this go? Not they will take you all the way to court over these kinds of hateful comments.
    Let me say something, There are actresses bigger then Freida, such as Angelina,Scarlett,Aishwarya who get called awful and terrible names on a daily basis. Scarlett has been called a dirty jewish whore,skank. Angelina get called mixed slut, crack addict, husband thief. Aishwarya has been called Ashwhoreya, Trashwarya. She has even been described as looking like a maid too.
    Tell me, is it only jewish bloggers only hating on Scarlett Johanson? Is it only whites that hate Angelina with a passion? Only indians that despise Aishwarya Rai? Are they truly racists at heart? No, they are just random bloggers or trolls.Thats all. These random folks are just trying to create fights or get a kick out of calling these celebs names. I still think this Ivy is a family member of Freida. Their comebacks are vicious and sound extreamly personal. I also don’t buy that when a person gets 11 thumbs down for their comment, that 11 diffrent people have given them a thumbs down. It’s only one person doing it, not matter how much they try to deny it. I have contacted Just jared about 3 times now and they are not doing anything about it. Is there another way to contact them?

  • Nandini

    @Ivy:

    You are again using “INDIAN”.
    Is skin color is not the issue with freida then dear IVY why the hell you are asking people to visit fair and lovely add and to check indian matrimonial site’s?What’s your point?
    I know indian prefer fair skin but why that has to be an issue in freida pino’s post non stop when it is proved that so many dark skinned(even darker then freida) actresses are worshiped by Indian men?

    I have seen those “maid” comments and I agree it is hateful and pure classless to say something like this low.But there is only one or two comments here are with slum and maid quote.If that is your objection then why are using the word “INDIAN” to describe them?Why cant they be pure pathetic soul then indian?Please explain me.If I am an indian and not saying rude stuff why should I get this?Why do you have to use Indian almost in every post?

    How do you know there are only Indian visitor on freida’s post?She is in Hollywood right?I also agree I think there are anti and defend freida troll active here.Make no sense!

    Just Jared have no active checking what blogger are posting on their site.Its very easy to use 5/6 different browser and keep thumbing own comments.I can do that.It is also possible using one particular email ID to publish thousand comments with different name. Pathetic.

    Just read again what you have written.You can not even write 4 line without mentioning 4 times”Indian”.What wrong with you?Why so much hate for India?It is also funny You agreed with a poster who said only indian hates freida then after some time said many are supportive and some are outraged.What are you talking mate?
    Can I ask you which country you belong?By born I dont hold indian nationality but I have many close relatives in west bengal.

  • Ivy

    @Nandini:
    Read the comments again and you might understand. You and I both know that it’s only Indians who would call Freida slum girl, ape, maid , peasant. Why is it hateful to say ‘Indian’ ? What is wrong with it? Unless you think it’s something negative. When I use the word Indian I have no concept of it being negative. What makes you think I hate India? I think the problem may be your negative perception of the word Indian.

    It might be possible many of them are Indian then again its clearly an assumption.Those who are saying nasty things are also very few in number.How is it fair to call only indian are doing it?It clearly gives a bad name for all indian.

    Please explain me is there any celebrity around any part of this world who is not a innocent victim of this cruel shameful attack by some pathetic soul?Would you call their own country people racist hater for that?

  • Raj Kappor

    LOl. Ignore this fuking idiot. They have no clue on what they are talking about. See what they wrote, having a bust makes you look like a porn star. I dare this fool to go on Beyonces boards and call her a porn star for her figure. They will get called names like stupid,idiot,fuker for saying that about Beyonce. So what this person is saying in a way is that People mag chose a ‘porn star’ as the most beautiful woman of 2012? Beyonce looks like a porn star because of her sexy figure? In what way does she even look like a porn star? This stupid person will come up with things like this to keep sniffing up Freida Pintos ass. Ignore them.

  • Manish

    @Nandini: Ivy is an indian. She has said that she was not indian but it seems from her recent comments that she has alot of information on bollywood, poverty issues in India ,caste systems and she seems to know a whole lot about fairness products. She also uses terms like “westerner”, fairness. She also reacted to people who were using kam wali, bai, kali. She seemed to know what they mean. Yeah right, she is not indian. She is a “westerner”.

  • Wi

    she is average looking and a crap actress. don’t get the fuss over her. please go away.
