Freida Pinto shows a lot of leg in a leather miniskirt and conquers a pomegranate in the latest issue of GQ. She talks life after Slumdog Millionaire, though her fears about being typecast as just another pretty face turned out to be unnecessary, as she has two serious films out this Fall. First up is Woody Allen's You Will Meet a Tall, Dark Stranger, which she premiered at TIFF with her boyfriend, Dev Patel, by her side, released Sept. 22. Then she's playing a Palestinian orphan raised in Israel in the indie flick Miral, out in December. Freida says:
- On Slumdog Millionaire's massive popularity: "I felt like people almost got fed up with seeing our faces splattered all over the place."
- On her fear of missing out on challenging roles: "In [Slumdog], Jamal says, 'She's the most beautiful girl in the world.' I was like, Damn it. That's gonna be the end for me. I'm not going to get anything serious after that!"
- On working with directors Woody Allen and Julian Schnabel: "Woody is someone I really respect, because he's a legend, but it's not like I got to know everything about his life. With Julian—we ended up sharing a very kind of personal relationship. Almost that of a father-daughter."
