Freida PInto

Slumdog Millionaire banger Freida Pinto covers the latest issue of Glamour Magazine. Inside the issue the actress makes the surprising claim that Hollyweird is getting better for people of color:

GLAMOUR: You’ve played women of several different ethnicities. Do you identify as an actress first, an Indian woman first, or neither?

FREIDA PINTO: I think people are starting to become more color-blind in the industry. Of course, my Indian-ness cannot be ignored. At the same time, if I am being considered for a romantic comedy, I would like if [the script] didn’t try to inject as much ethnicity into the story as possible.

Pinto plays a Palestinian woman who is orphaned in the upcoming film Miral and the part was shot in the Middle East, which meant a pretty scary shoot for the Indian actress:

GLAMOUR: You were filming in Tunisia when the uprising happened there. What was that like?

FREIDA PINTO: Terrifying. There was a civil war going on. People were burning down shops and malls; there was killing and bloodshed. I was stuck in this massive hotel with 354 rooms and only six guests. The lights kept shutting down, and there was a 5:00 P.M. curfew. But I wasn’t there by myself: Dev [Patel, her Slumdog costar and current boyfriend] came down to see me. I was so glad I had company.

We’re glad Freida is still with Dev, he seems like a good guy… Interestingly enough she doesn’t seem gung ho on Hollyweird relationships:

GLAMOUR: Why do you think relationships so often fail in Hollywood?

FREIDA PINTO: When a doctor is performing an operation, his mind cannot be somewhere else. And it’s the same with actors. You have to commit yourself mind, body and soul to a project in order to do justice to it. And temptations are rife in this industry, which is why I think it’s important to know yourself before you try to deal with a relationship.
