Freida Pinto explains run in with suicide bomber

Rise of the Planet of the Apes actress Freida Pinto has revealed how she had a brief run in with a suicide bomber while she was filming in Afghanistan. Back in 2006, Freida was a presenter for Zee TV’s travel show Full Circle and they headed off to film in the travel hotspots of Afghanistan but had to flee when they learnt of a suicide bomber in the area. 

Pinto explained, “We were on our way to one of the temples in Kabul, and we saw these people standing around, staring at this car, their arms folded. They calmly asked us to go the other way… The guy said, ‘You see that little red car? There’s a suicide bomber in that car, and it’s going to go off anytime.’”
 
She added, “He was so matter-of-fact… It was so sad. No one even knew who (the bomber) was. I don’t know if there was an explosion. We left the scene.” Freida Pinto recently revealed that she would love to work with her boyfriend Dev Patel on another movie but it would have to be different from their previous movie, the 2008 hit Slumdog Millionaire.

Actress Freida Pinto has been dating her current boyfriend Dev Patel since the two of them met each other on the set of the 2008 hit movie Slumdog Millionaire but the two of them have yet to reappear together on the big screen. However, Freida has admitted that she would not rule out working with Dev Patel again but it would have to be some sort of dark comedy.

Pinto explained, “I don’t think something like a Slumdog could be repeated by the two of us, only because the expectations that were built on that project were so high. And I know that it would be difficult to live up to those expectations. “If it were a comedy, or maybe a dark comedy, I’d be interested in trying that out with him.”
 
She added. “He’s not just a terrific actor – what many people don’t know if they’ve not met him is that he has an amazing sense of comic timing; and a comic timing that doesn’t hurt people – just a very light-hearted way that keeps you laughing throughout the day.” With a budget of just $15m, Slumdog Millionaire has gone on to gross over $362m worldwide.
Freido Pinto is looking forward to growing old

Slumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto has revealed how she does not understand how actresses keep having surgery to keep them looking younger, as she cannot wait to grow old gracefully. Freida claims that she admires the older actresses, who have avoided having surgery, as their faces have much more character about them and can tell a story.

Pinto explained, “I don’t understand why everyone wants to look young. I can’t wait to grow older. I would love to have wrinkles like Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, Susan Sarandon, Helen Mirren because each wrinkle has its own story. I admire the amount of character their faces have now more than before. I know actresses are under the scanner and growing old is difficult for them. But it’s nice to age gracefully.”
 
Freida Pinto can currently be seen, starring alongside the likes of Henry Cavill, Mickey Rourke, Stephen Dorff, Luke Evans and John Hurt, in the Tarsem Singh fantasy drama movie Immortals, which hit the big screen last month. 27 year old Freida Pinto is currently dating 21 year old actor Dev Patel.

Pinto explained, “We recently realized we need a rule like that, because every time we think we’re going to be together, something work-related comes up. But we can’t put our careers on hold for this. We’re not at the stage where we have the privilege to turn things down.”
 
She added, “So we’ll say, ‘You have two days off? Let’s find a way to meet up.’ I think you can always make it work if you want to.” Freida Pinto can next be seen on the big screen alongside Henry Cavill, Kellan Lutz and Isabel Lucas, in Immortals, which is released on November 11.
