Freida Pinto regularly pinches herself to believe her rise to stardomMarch 8th, 2009 - 1:09 pm ICT by ANI
London, March 8 (ANI): Freida Pinto is yet to believe she has landed the Hollywood jackpot after starring in Danny Boyles mega hit Slumdog Millionaire.
The 24-year-old, who hails from the city of Mumbai, revealed she kept pinching herself to believe the astonishing success of the film which bagged eight Oscars, seven BAFTAs and four Golden Globes.
Freida recently landed herself a role in Woody Allens new movie while being a favourite amongst the designers running to dress her.
She was also said to have Kate Winslet’’s LA agent on her speed dial while boasting of having ear of the top actress herself, Angelina Jolie.
But the actress, who has been rumoured to have sparks flying with her 6-year-junior co-star Dev Patel, insisted she was yet to be struck by stardom and was far from believing that her showbiz dreams had come true.
“It’’s been six months and nothing has sunk in yet,” News of the World quoted her as saying at the Four Seasons Hotel, Beverly Hills.
“I”m still the same sensitive and simple girl who always dreamed about becoming an actress.
The only thing that’’s changed is that the girl walking around in jeans and tees has now taken to wearing designer dresses,” she added.
Her former fiance Rohan Antao had claimed that Freida not only compelled him to stay mum about their engagement, for the benefit of the movie, but also snubbed him to be with her onscreen lover.
Dumped Antao blamed the film and Dev for putting an end to his relationship with the actress. (ANI)
