"She's incredible. I have a tremendous amount of respect for anyone who comes out of a best picture situation. I think that takes a lot of courage and she worked really hard. But she's doing extremely well. She is very courageous," Brolin said of Freida in a statement.
Freida, who was a model in Mumbai, bagged a key role in Danny Boyle's "Slumdog Millionaire", which won multiple Academy Awards. There has been no looking back for Fredia since then as she is spotted at key red carpet events and even bagged plum international projects. »

To be launched mid-2014, the fund will support five Us productions a year for five years, including one each year that will shoot in the Middle East region.
“It could be a love story, comedy or drama; it doesn’t have to deal with politics or religion. We will try to shoot the film in Dubai or Abu Dhabi availing of the rebates and incentives they offer. We would like to show more of the Arab landscape and culture in Hollywood films,” Al Turki told Screen.
Al Turki has executive produced films such as Arbitrage, starring Richard Gere, and Richard Raymond’s upcoming Desert Dancer starring Freida Pinto. Golubovich’s producer credits include Paul Haggis’ Third Person. The producing duo haven’t specified the size of the fund but said they will approach institutional investors. »
Terrence Malick has let many collaborators into his secretive, creative lair but only a select few have become regulars. But it looks like Hanan Townshend will join folks like production designer Jack Fisk, editor Billy Weber and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki as one of the lucky few. The composer has reunited with the filmmaker to score the director's upcoming "Knight of Cups," his second straight gig with Malick after composing the score for "To the Wonder." Of course, little is actually known of the plot, but it will feature in varying capacities (depending on who gets cut or not): Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Isabel Lucas, Antonio Banderas, Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer, Ryan O'Neal, Jason Clarke, Joel Kinnaman and Shea Whigham. But that's not all Townshend is working on. He's also been hired to contribute additional music to the Malick-produced "The Green Glade Rises," which »

Simon Columb on Zelig...
Before Forrest Gump was Zelig. Feeding a fictional character into history is central to the story of Leonard Zelig. Prior to Christopher Guest and his popular use of mockumentary in This is Spinal Tap, Woody Allen was there in 1983 (Allen’s Take the Money and Run from 1969 is one of the earliest uses of mockumentary in cinema). This is the story of Leonard Zelig (Woody Allen), a fictional character in the 1920’s dubbed a chameleon due to his extraordinary skill in changing form »

Pinto will play Pearce’s love interest.
“We’ve been looking for just the right combination of warmth and chutzpah and Freida is the perfect fit: Intelligent and talented, and she completely gets the humor in this story about finding family,” said Claybourne, who, along with his attorney, John Logigian, will retain rights to North America.
Pic’s target audience, Claybourne said, is “16 and up. It will definitely be enjoyed by the 30s-and-up for the quirky, intelligent comedy element.” He likened the film’s humor to “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Harold and Maude” and “Little Miss Sunshine.”

Yes, you heard that right; Slumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto is getting down and dirty in the video for Bruno Mars's latest single, "Gorilla." The song itself is not exactly tame - Bruno talks about "legs up in the sky" and "making love like gorillas" - so it's no surprise that the accompanying clip is risqué in its own right. That being said, it's still pretty shocking to see Freida (aka new-in-town stripper Isabella) bump, grind, and share a steamy make-out scene with Bruno. "Gorilla" is just the latest in a slew of racy music videos we've seen over the past few months, including Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" and Rihanna's twerk-filled clip for "Pour It Up," and even though it's supersexy and not exactly safe for work, we have to admit that it's pretty mild compared to its recent counterparts. What do you think of Freida Pinto's »

Also, keep an eye out for "We Are the Millers" star Luis Guzman in the beginning! What do you think of Fredia's stripper role in Bruno's new video?

Check out the official music video for Bruno Mars' new sexy jam "Gorilla," which features actress Freida Pinto as Isabella, a new stripper at the "La Jungla" club who has such prowess on the pole that at one point, she causes a power outage.
Bruno performs at the club while lusting after Isabella in a mash-up that harkens back to the pulpy movies of the '70s. Luis Guzman can also be spotted in the video as the sleazy strip club owner.
Mars has already been announced as the performer for the halftime of Super Bowl Xlviii. Will "Gorilla" figure into his act in February? »
This isn't the Freida Pinto people are used to seeing. The 28-year-old actress takes center stage in Bruno Mars' just-released "Gorilla" music video, playing a newbie stripper named Isabella. Actor Luis Gusman also makes a cameo as the seedy club owner who introduces Pinto's character as "the new girl in town." Mars, who co-wrote the song with Philip Lawrence Ari Levine for his sophomore album, Unorthodox Jukebox, directed the clip. During the six-minute video, the 28-year-old singer watches men throw dollar bills at Pinto as she writhes on a pole, whips her hair back and forth and caresses her body. While the video is certainly provocative, it's not too surprising, given the lyrical »
Will the real Freida Pinto please stand up? The actress, who broke out in 2008 with the feel-good Oscar-winning Bollywood-style mash-up Slumdog Millionaire, covers Vogue India's October issue, and gone is the pretty and prim persona her fans are familiar with. Looking the sexiest she's ever looked, Pinto instead seems to be trying on an edgier and more provocative identity. In the arresting image for the magazine's 6th anniversary issue, the gorgeous Indian-born star, 28, wears a bustier bra and matching hot shorts under an open black [...] »
