Why we love Freida Pinto
We have an awful lot to thank Danny Boyle for. Not only has he entertained us with Scottish junkies and contagious zombies, but the acclaimed director also brought Freida Pinto into our lives in Slumdog Millionaire.
Prior to her role in one of the biggest flicks of 2009, the impossibly beautiful actress worked as a model, shilling stuff like Skodas and Wrigleys chewing gum to the good folks of India. After an extended stint on a travel show, Freida persisted with film casting sessions for two years before Mr Boyle decided she should fall in love with a lad with an uncanny knack for TV quiz shows.
On the back of her award winning turn in Slumdog, she has signed up with behemoth US talent agency CAA, so we can expect to see a lot more of her in the future. She should probably get back on our screens soon though, having dropped 87 places from her 2009 top ten position in our latest 100 Sexiest poll.
