Freida Reveals Her Sexy Side, and Her Typecasting Fears, in GQ

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."

I dont get the bullshit about Indian women looking better than her. Or her being average in India. Blah Blah "shes dark, shes ugly". Um hello all you folks in India, most of you are freaking dark! Embrace it! Stop holding blue eyes to such a high standard.

She isn't like your typical bollywood beauties, but I think that is part of her charm - she is uniquely beautiful even if she isn't as beautiful in terms of what is the mainstream standard of beauty. Like fake blondes in hollywood, the same old look in bollywood gets boring and starts to look repetitive. She is refreshing.

Someone should tell her she doesn't want a "father daughter" relationship with Woody Allen. Dev wouldn't like it.

I'm from an Asian background ,,,, and to be honest ..... she cant even match the hotness and beauty typical Indian women have , There a tons of actresses in bollywood that look better than her , I agree with Reba too .... so full of herself . And the most weird thing is .... she barely showed any acting skills in the movie . I dont get why she's a big deal

The answer to the second question is remarkably vain. She's an average actress.

Wasn't the biggest fan of Slumdog, I'm so not into pity. But this chick is freaking gorgeous and her body is hot! Hope to see more of her soon.
