Gwyneth Paltrow fears Freida Pinto may replace her as the face of Estee LauderMarch 29th, 2009 - 2:32 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 29 (ANI): Gwyneth Paltrow fears that ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ star Freida Pinto may steal her biggest sponsorship deal- the 1million dollars per year contract with Estee Lauder.
The Oscar-winning actress endorses a range of DVDs and gyms, and replaced Elizabeth Hurley as the younger, fresher face of the cosmetic brand in 2005.
But, now, Paltrow is spending sleepless nights fearing that the rising Indian actress Freida is might supplant her.
“Gwyneth makes millions through her sponsorship deals and it’s her commercial work that’s keeping her rich,” the Daily Mail quoted a source as saying.
The source added: “The news that Estee Lauder is in talks with Freida caught her by complete surprise. Losing the Estee Lauder deal would be a huge blow to Gwyneth. She’s waiting for an exact outline of what Freida will be doing for the brand and hoping she won’t be sidelined.” (ANI)
