Freida Pinto is certainly hot Hollywood property at the moment. With seven films on her CV since Slumdog Millionaire swept the awards ceremonies in 2009, including the forthcoming The Rise of the Planet of the Apes, a movie-star boyfriend (Slumdog co-star Dev Patel) and a host of designers clamouring to dress her, she’s got Tinseltown wrapped around her little finger.
Not to mention us at InStyle! On her September cover shoot India’s hottest export charmed us with her manners, wowed us with her fashion sense and downright smouldered for the camera.
The pint-sized Pinto also won us over with her down-to-earth attitude, revealing that she, too, gets nervous before seeing her boyfriend after a hiatus, even if it is just on Skype: “We use it [Skype] a lot – and we hate it as well! It’s like a tease. I also feel it’s this pressure: ‘Oh my God, he’s seeing me after two weeks, I hope my hair is okay’. It’s just hideous. I think even the most beautiful person looks stupid on Skype.”
