    @mahamoud:
    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.

    @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

  22. 22
    KK Says:

    @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.

  23. 23
    KK Says:

    @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?

    Ezra Says:

    @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.

    tichien Says:

    @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 Says:

    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 Says:

    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.

    TheVoiceOfReason Says:

    @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.

    Priyanka Says:

    @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 !

  32. 32
    Priyanka Says:

    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.

  33. 33
    Why Says:

    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!

    KO Tatasugi Says:

    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.

  38. 38
    KO Tatasugi Says:

    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.

    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.

  41. 41
    Thyres Says:

    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 *******!

  42. 42
    Thyres Says:

    @mahamoud:
    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?

    Lones Says:

    Love Cate but who the heck is Freida Pinto?

  44. 44
    Simran Says:

    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.

    Tonyfraz Says:

    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.

    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.

    NYC Says:

    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.

    Fibbi Says:

    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.

    mahamoud Says:

    @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.

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

    @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.

    mahamoud Says:

    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 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.

    mahamoud Says:

    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.

  71. 71
    mahamoud Says:

    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
