Freida Pinto Says Fame Prevented Her From Being Herself

Freida Pinto Says Fame Prevented Her From Being Herself

Freida Pinto keeps it toned and sexy on the cover of the latest cover for Net-A-Porter.com’s The Edit!

Here’s what the 30-year-old Indian actress had to share:

On not looking like typical Hollywood starlet: “It’s hard because the first thing people see when I go into an audition is that I am 100% Indian, but I don’t remember a time in my life when I did not see myself as a world citizen. When I watch films, I can always imagine myself as the female lead – even if it’s Minnie Mouse.”

On fame: “It was also partly due to the fact that Dev [Patel] and I were dating, so suddenly there we were, being chased down London’s Regent Street by the paparazzi. People were being knocked down in front of cars and it was really messy. For a long time I felt that I couldn’t be myself. I pushed a lot of friends away from me at that time and it took me about two years to understand it. Now that I do, I feel like there’s a method to this madness.”

On Because I Am a Girl campaign: “You hear that phrase so much, ‘I got raped… because I’m a girl’, ‘I can’t go out at night… because I’m a girl, when really it should be, ‘Because I’m a girl, I can give birth to the next generation of enlightened males.”

    She’s a terrible actress. I hope she gets a lot more modelling jobs because her acting just doesn’t do it for me.

    what has she done lately?

    She is a famewhore with no talent. Like Kim K. Her fans always used to use the racist tag against anyone who doesn’t think she is beautiful or talented. Glad to see alot of people have woken up and have stopped drinking her kool-aid. I think she is ugly for an indian woman and looks like maid servant.
