Slumdog Millionaire star’s modeling days
It’s not a secret many actresses start their career as models. But all models and all modeling careers are different.
Slumdog Millionaire’s star Freida Pinto is now known as an actress and a successful newcomer to movie industry. But before Millionaire’s director Danny Boyle saw her on a travel show and cast her to star in the Oscar-nominated flick, she was a fashion model and worked with the renowned Bollywood photographer Ryan Martis.
Besides being a catwalk model and a covergirtl for Indian mags, Freida was selected for several ad campaigns including ones for De Beers diamond, Skoda and Wrigley chewing gum.
Frieda first came to me in 2005 via a common friend. She wanted to enter a hairstyle competition and asked me to photograph her. The moment I saw her I recognized that Frieda was going to become a model. In fact, I suggested she audition for some modeling jobs,” Martis said of Pinto, according to DailyMail.co.uk. “Frieda was very excited about getting a break in Hollywood. She told me all about her big chance but then, I didn’t know – no one did – that it was going to be such a big hit with lots of awards and fame,” he added saying Freida did a great job and deserves it.
These photos were made four years ago. Ms. Pinto looks fantastic in the pics. Very natural and very beautiful, indeed. No bitching.
