This ****** has said many nasty thing on indian actress Aishwarya rai. Calling her ugly round face. She even insulted beautiful Hollywood atctresses like Angelina Jolie. Fugly troll. Check out youtube and this person has many accounts like Krevo,Barthan,
Fugly troll, You are not as pretty as Angelina or Aishwarya.In your dreams.
They are an indian pretending to be white. but like to all other actresses

And pinto can promote herself however she likes.fact is she is a flop and she really needs to get some big role and some acting lessons if she wants to stay in movies.

# 7

Cate is a great actress .Wonderful talented woman. Would rather see her than some no talent,average looking girl flaunting around.

# 8

If you are talking about Cate the yes she is perfection. Talent and a beauty. Could not tak my eyes off her in FOTR even though she was there for like 5 mins lol.

# 9

brown girl looks like she clean horse sh!t for a living who is she anyways?

Cate & Freida are gorgeous!

Freida is okay in looks but not a good actress. I would never put her with these two women. She is not on their level. Besides why was she invited as a judge? She doesn’t know how to act herself lol. Cate I can understand but her? Okay then.

Also people this is what I mean
This is the little ******.You have been caught. Shame on you.
You call indian actress ugly hook nose when you are below average in looks?Whaddya have to say for yourself???
You call Miss Jolie man-like and Miss rai Beaky nose?Ugly *****
Too bad they are known as most beauitful actress,most beautiful women and not fugly pinto.

@sid: racist much??

Guys no more racial fights. Lets talk about how gorgeous Cate looks!

Suraj Sharma is hot!

Freida’s dark chocolate skin looks amazing in gold. Love her brown eye shadow…..the make up is flawless as usual. Love the elegant chic hair style. And she’s got the best smile in Hollywood. So gorgeous. Can’t wait to see what she’ll wear next.

@Ivy: that’s what you call “chocolate brown”?? lmao

it’s true- they all look great!! X

Great to see young Suraj having the time of his life. Reminds me of Freida and Dev when they first broke out with SDM.

Nice to you to to protect and sniff up her ass.
You have been put to shame and exposed.

Danielle Trute @ 12/09/2012 at 6:14 pm

Cate is a goddess!

@KK: kk you’re missing a k. if you’re going for it then go for it. So typical for a racist to be a coward

@rikki: Please ignore this person.They are some pathetic loser who don’t allow any critcism of madame Pinto.She is someone related to freida. She comment over any blog saying the same thing and says bad things on other stars to make Freida look good.Many have identified this troll.Be ware. Why put down someone else to make another look good? Horrible person.

@paris: Who says anything about me being apart of that klue klux clan? My name is KK and I have not said anything racist. If you want to see a racist commentor please go check out iVY and her Fake IDs. I wish well For freida and she looks great here but I can still give her criticims no? She should get criticism like any other celebrity.

Anybody see the Hobbit yet?

@KK: You are entitled to your opinion. Is it just me or does it look like paris is the racist ? I agree that this is a celeb blog and people should be allowed to say whatever they want. Hello people we live in 2012. Not 1445.

@mahamoud: That facebook page is weird. It looks like one of the commentor writing here matches the one on facebook. How odd. Did you know that JJ is site for PR people? Maybe Freida’s PR likes to leave comments here too. Its looks very fishy and odd.

Milestogo @ 12/09/2012 at 6:44 pm

Freida Pinto sure knows how to dress but imo she can’t act or has any talent. Cate on the other hand is both beautiful and talented!

TheVoiceOfReason @ 12/09/2012 at 6:55 pm

Dear Kate,

You are waay too much of an esteemed actress to be wearing such and ugly dress. I have seen you do better. Please step up your style game like you used to.

Love, Reason

Gold looks beautiful on Freida and I love Cate Blanchett

TheVoiceOfReason @ 12/09/2012 at 7:06 pm

@Ivy: Kerry Washington is Chocolate. (I love Kerry. Too bad L’Oreal under utilized her) Frieda is tan. Frieda is very regal, and gorgeous in gold. If there are so many people here hating Frieda she must be doing something right.

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.”
-Elie Wiesel

@mahamoud: I mean I have seen other justjared posts and this person even knows where Freida and Dev hang out and where they dine. Who would know such things if they were not a relative or a pal of theirs? They even know about Freida’s family memebers and how they own a resturant. Ohhh shocking !

Keep talking to your hand. We know who you are.
Freida has no fans or ‘haters’ .You don’t know what that word means. This is a celebrity blog where people come to have their views heard. If you are too immature about it then don’t come here. Or grow up.

Is is just me or are Ivy and VoiceofReason the same person? We get that you like Freida but no need to get this low LMFAO.
Cate looks great! Can’t wait to see her in the Hobbit movies!

Queen Cate looks so regal! Freida looks lovely too.

Nigga Homy YO @ 12/09/2012 at 8:10 pm

Whos that nigga b1tch yo

Cate is a queen. Cate is a goddess . I love her on the stage and in the movies. Mesmerizing. I love see her with her family.

KO Tatasugi @ 12/09/2012 at 8:30 pm

OH no!
I have not been on JJ for while but still? There are still racist fights over Freida Pinto?Why hasn’t Justjared done something about this one person.
Very sad to see they are still thumbing up their own comments and thumbing down anyone who doesn’t agree with them. Its very immature too.
Freida looks really cute and pretty here but she no competitor of someone like Cate Blanchet,Angelina Jolie,Aishwarya Rai Bahchan.
Yes I do agree that Ivy and Voice whatever are the same person. If you are new to JJ then let me tell you that this person is a dysfunctional troll and says many nasty racist things on Indians and indian celebs. Which is sad. Many indian women are very pretty light skin or dark skin. This person is thought to be some relative of freida Pinto. They way the write about her and defend is very passionatly and as if they personally know her.
If you check Pinkvilla this person goes by the name of rasuinda.
Its very sad to see that this person has nothing better to do but trash and insult an entire race of people over a useless celeb like freida pinto.She hasn’t achieved anythng major in Hollywood and compared to most of the stars in hollywood she is not amazngly pretty or even talented. What they are doing is wrong and racist. Please put your anger aside and just leave a comment without bringiing up indians,bollywood,Aishwarya Rai,etc. Please for the last time this is a public forum and let people have their comments. Please let others have their opinions. No need to be rude or nasty. I also agree to stop with the racial fights. Please stop it.

KO Tatasugi @ 12/09/2012 at 8:34 pm

Yes Cate is looking very goddess-like. I am in awe of her beauty and acting.
Freida looks very cute and pretty But I am sad to see she has not been offered alot of roles. She really needs to upgrade her acting skills.

Cate is a beauty.

I CAN’T stand racism.
Freida is gorgeous.
AND Cate is stunning. The best Actress in the World. Her outfit is flawless. I love her.

Yes I also agree I have seen only one person writing the same comments on Freida Pinto’s posts. Okay there are people who like her but there are people who don’t like her. Why does that shock you so much? Have heard of twitter or facebook. To this one person why are you trying to hard to make it look like she has so many fans but write the same exact way ? Why? What are you hoping to achieve by putting down a group of people to make her look good? Thats awful.
I am not indian but I am of persian decent(iranian) and I can tell you that indian women are really stunning. Yes they are of all colours and it looks beautiful. Freida is pretty but compared to those women? Nah.
Please take your racist mentality elsewhere. We don’t want it here. You *******!

I am sorry but I laughed at that page. I know its not funny but I am still laughing. Its this person here, Ivy/Voiceofreason
Pathetic all.
No more racist comments from now on okay?

Love Cate but who the heck is Freida Pinto?

I mean Freida is not beautiful or a good actress but she alteast tried.
Good she tried. Maybe she can do better in Bollywood? Good luck to her future works. I was sad that she got casted as a maid in Trishna. Indians are alway seen as poor maids or beggars to Americans.

Duchess Cate brough along the help lol
The freida chick looks like her driver or someone who runs the bath for her. So ugly. I think I have seen her before, oh wait she works at a mexican bar lol.

@sid: LOL so true! She does look like she cleans horse ****! Arabian kings can hire her as a horse poop shoveler.

Shut up VoiceofReaon/IVY. Loser.Dumb idiot writes racist comments but can’t handle it when others question her? She must be a relative of Pinto.
What haters does miss pinto have? or even fans. She hardly got a fanbase or haterbase.Only one lame troll who has been exposed lol.
Now we know who it is.

LOL……I love making the Bigots expose themselves.

In trying to run down Freida … have just insulted the Mexicans, you twat!

OMG! There is so much hate within this post. I guess the power of anonymity turns people into animals. So sad.

@Ezra: Next year hun. I honestly think The Hobbit will get a case of sequelitis. If it’s not broke don’t fix it. I had enough of LOTR. Leave it alone.

Oh look same loser is back with her fake IDs. Aishwarya and Angelina both look better then you relative pinto.

Lets not fight with this retarded piece of crap anymore. She is all over the sites saying the same thing. Same fight,same troll,same thing.
Racist *****. No guy wants to go out with her.Wonder why.

I think it’s a disgrace when celebs suck up to Dubai.
Shame on them.
Not only are they all a bunch of anti-semites but they are anti-human rights and women’s rights as well.
You can have Dubai. I will NEVER go there.

Wow why do some of these comments have so many thumbs downs? Some of them are harmless comments. OMG let everyone say what they want !
I don’t really like Freida Pinto but come on .Even the celebrities that I like I don’t guard them day and night like this one fan of hers. Maybe mahmoud or whatever was right. They are just immature and can’t accept others opinions on her. Which is sad. I don’t really believe someone like her has a ton of fans to begin with. So whats going on here?
Cate looks really nice I will admit but her outfit is terrible.

@NYC: I am jewish and I will never step foot there. Awful.

@NYC: I heard that these celebs get paid to come to countries like Dubai and they get paid big money for it!

@Fibbi: There is no need to get personal with a celeb. Why?!
I saw seen some comments on dailymail written by this person. They say that Freida has many haters which is a lie, that why are people criticizing her and all. Which is funny since this person makes multiple fake IDs to attack other indian stars to make her look good.Hypocrite. This person few months ago was upset because maybe one or two called her a moneky.Well I found this ****** on youtube comaparing aishwarya rai’s nose with a monkeys *****.Hypocrite much?Its perfectly alright to call an indian actress ugly and compare her features with a monkeys **** but this person get so much in rage when one or two call freida looks similar to an ape? Mind you this person has even attacked Hollywood actresses but they never comment on justjared or dailymail bashing them. Only on an indian actresses post they will do it. They are afraid to encounter the fans of these actresses because they will be told off.
Freida PR is clearly working overtime to make her happen. She is not gonna end up With Scarlett Johansson’s or Natalie Portmans or zoe Saldana career thats for sure. Sorry but you need to talent to get where they are. She is doing camoe role worth 2 min because that all the talent shes got. She is fading.She can attend all the red carpet events she likes but she needs to brush up on her acting skills.

SyntaxError @ 12/12/2012 at 1:45 am

It’s always the same people obsessed with Freida and commenting under her posts. Creepy.

Tsk tsk tsk …..Too verbose. Keept it pithy, witty and funny. Then people might actually read your comments.

@Ivy: The converstation is over.Let it go. Do you wait around for me to leave a comment so you can come and attack with your many fake IDs? pathtic.

also honey, nice to see you that love to go around site by site looking for any comments against freida so you can attack and sniff up her ass 24/7. do you have a boyfreind? No? Wonder why. your obession with her has been since 2009, and nobody believes you. get a life or better yet go find yourself a guy. oh wait you can’t since all you do is sniff up some semi-celebs ass. no guys wants to date a creepy obesseive loser like you. you know celebrity obession is not healthy for the mind. you have been exposed.

This is who I meant by the freida pinto obesssed loser here
This is from 2009 and guess what?
Its the exact same writing from IVY and her fake IDs!!!!
Now we know Freida has no fans.just one fat IVY
This iVY herself has no high cheekbones,no jawline and goes aorund calling others ugly. You and Pinto are both avg looking girls
Exposed big time lol! Don’t ever stop!!!!! I am having a great time exposing you!
You ugly *****! Shame on you. Have you no shame in pretending to be ‘western’ yet you use indian terminology? You are beyond pathetic.

Butthurt much?

The conversation is over.You really do enjoy fighting with strangers on freida posts?let it go honey.Nobody is fooled you.

Lighten up, Sweetie. You are taking all this a bit too seriously.
BTW the pinkville link doesn’t work but thanks for bringing my attention to the facebook-notfair.still lovely page. I went and liked it. Thanks to you…..more people know about it.

TheVoiceOfReason @ 12/12/2012 at 9:04 pm

@Ivy: Hey Ivy, click my name. You’ll like that page too. I don’t know why @Mahamoud even comes around these posts. Shoot I hate Nicki Minaj but you don’t see me trolling her posts

Thank you. Mahmoud probably thinks I started that too. I wish…!

Haha same person, same fight. Please let it go.I don’t hate freida for the last time. I just said I don’t find her pretty/not talented. If someone says we don’t find her pretty/not good actress its not hating you ******.I don’t share a personal realtionship with her life you do.This is a celebrity board where people are allowed to say whatever they want without being told nasty and racial things.
Nice to see you talking to yourself.Go visit a pychologist. You write the same exact way dear.Not fooled still.
Many have identified you.
My god I wonder what greatness freida has done to get herself an obessive fan with talks back to themselves.Or its a relative.

And what about when you call indians haters,racist for no reason? You can make as much ID as you want but nobody is fooled. Nice to see you talking back to yourself.Keep it coming.This is over now.Let it go for the last time.Loser who can’t get a date or some **** LOL

I love you!
