Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto says she is proud to have broken quintessential Hollywood girls as leading ladies in the films.
The 26-year-old actress may not be a typical blonde haired and blue eyed American girl but she sure is an Oscar star.
Talking about the typical Hollywood stuff Freida said, “Those other actresses have their own appeal and they bring whatever they bring to a film while I bring something that I do not particularly feel has been explored much in Hollywood,”
The Mumbai-born actress has been cast by director Julian Schnabel to play the lead role in ‘Miral’, a film about a Palestinian girl. Pinto is glad that American filmmakers are now more acceptive of actors from other ethnicities like her.
