Since catapulting to fame with Slumdog Millionaire four years ago, Freida Pinto is lauded as one of the best dressed and often features on the ‘most beautiful women in the world’ lists.
But in a glossy new photoshoot, the 27-year-old Indian actor has revealed her rarely seen sexy side as she posed suggestively in a vest and panties for the April issue of men’s magazine Esquire.
Pinto talks frankly about her nude scenes in her latest film Trishna - an Indian-set reworking of Tess Of The d’Urbervilles - in a raunchy new interview.
She briefly appears naked in a sex scene in the Michael Winterbottom-directed film, but recently admitted she enlisted a butt double for the sequence.
“It was hard but it was a small crew, and they were good at not making their presence felt,” the Daily Mail quoted her as telling Esquire magazine.
“They didn’t go, “Quick! She’s nearly naked! Get your camera out!” she said.
And although the Indian actress did strip off for this film, nude scenes wouldn’t become a regular occurrence, as she insists that the script would have to justify them.
“If you’re just doing a nude scene in order for everyone to, like, w*** off or something, then that’s not my thing at all,” she added.
