June has started with a bang – only one week in and already two events in our photo gallery! On June 3rd, Freida attended the 10th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, and two days later she was back in Los Angeles for Deadline Hollywood’s Emmy Season Kick Off Party. Pictures from both appearances can be seen in our gallery. Does Freida look awesome in that oversized hat or what?!
Two nights ago, Freida Pinto attended “An Evening with Women”, hosted by the Los Angeles LGBT Center. She looked great in a black and white ensemble, while walking the red carpet at the event. Pictures can be found in our photo gallery, simply click on the previews below to see them all, as per usual.
The past two days, Freida Pinto attended two different events for Christian Dior’s 2018 Cruise Collection – the welcome dinner (on May 10) and runway show & after party (on May 11). She looked stunning in two different Dior (duuh) outfits during the outings, where she was photographed next to actresses such as Brie Larson, Demi Moore, Laura Dern and more.

My first encounter with Freida Pinto isn’t quite what I expected. After Red’s shoot, during which she hugs everyone, nibbles on almonds and twirls in Erdem and Valentino, Pinto, her publicist and I hop in a taxi to her central London hotel, where our interview is scheduled to take place. I’m hopeful for a pre-interview natter. Instead, Pinto announces she’s going to nap. I wonder if this is a canny tactic to avoid talking to a journalist more than is absolutely necessary. Within seconds, despite the rush-hour traffic and a brake-happy cab driver, she’s asleep. The driver, her publicist and I sit in hushed silence, for fear of waking her, for the next 25 minutes.
Both Pinto and the situation perk up, however, when we arrive. “I needed that,” smiles the actress, 32. “I was up until 3am working.” She seems so grateful for the shut-eye, I instantly forgive her for not indulging me with small talk. Publicist gone, we ensconce ourselves in the squishy Chesterfield sofas of the hotel’s drawing room. Pinto orders the baked apples with cinnamon that the kitchen prepare especially for her (“I don’t eat sugar, but I love a treat in the evening”) and sips still water. She’s casual – indigo Mother jeans, a Madewell Breton top, and a grey Lavish Alice coatigan) but properly, effulgently beautiful, all cut-glass cheekbones and Colgate-ad teeth. For the next hour she talks animatedly.
After playing sweet, shy Latika in Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, the 2009 film which propelled Pinto to stardom, I was expecting to meet a wallflower, but Pinto is anything but. Where some A-Listers might shy away from talking politics, we dive straight in. Her latest project is Guerrilla, a six-part thriller set in 1970s London about the real-life Black Power Desk, a secretive counter-intelligence unit of the police that was dedicated to crushing black activism. Pinto plays Jas, a political protester turned radical militant. She wastes no time in comparing the plot to today’s politics. “There’s Brexit, Black Lives Matter, Syria… The show feels very ‘of the moment’,” she says.
As is evident on her Instagram page, Pinto went on the Women’s March in LA in January, rallying with a friend atop her shoulders. “What’s happening right now isn’t just political, it’s inhumane,” she explains. “It’s divisive. I have friends in the Muslim nations aff ected by the travel ban. This is not the US I came to. I was accepted after arriving from India and being in one film.”
Can someone in Hollywood please find a funny role for Freida Pinto? Her sister, Sharon, is begging you.
When the 32-year-old actress told her sibling she’d signed on to make Showtime’s ’70s underground activist drama Guerrilla, Sharon had some concerns: “Do you get raped? Do you get killed? What happens?”
Understandable. Since Pinto hip-swiveled and thumka’d off the screen of 2009’s Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire and into fashion magazine pages everywhere, she’s appeared in a host of serious-issue films. Movies like Miral, directed by Julian Schnabel, about a Palestinian girl caught in the Arab-Israeli conflict; Desert Dancer, about a young Iranian who risks his life to work for his art; and the upcoming Love Sonia, a drug-trafficking drama in which Pinto stars as the owner of a brothel.
Now, in Guerrilla, written and produced by John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) and co-starring Idris Elba, Pinto plays a nurse radicalized by an underground cell in London in the early 1970s. Pinto describes the six-episode series as “my dream television gig”—i.e., “six heavy, intense, juicy, entertaining episodes of something that will get people talking.
But Pinto is also ready for an upbeat turn, and she promises she’s not as dark as some of her roles suggest. “I’m very bright on life in general,” she says, sipping a turmeric latte with almond milk, no sweetener, at Bardonna, a coffee-house in Larchmont, near her Los Angeles home. “But in performances, I like getting out of myself.” Plus Guerrilla, she says, has at least a few moments of lightness and levity. (Sharon apparently responded to this by saying Pinto had “a very f—ed-up sense of ‘light.’ ”)
After doing press for Guerrilla – finally premiering tomorrow night on Showtime! – in the past weeks, Freida Pinto made her way to the 2017 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival yesterday. She was photographed in two tents at the area, for Victoria’s Secret and H&M. Pictures from both appearances have been added to our photo gallery.
Last night, Freida Pinto and her Guerrilla team made their last stop for the press tour at a “For Your Consideration” Emmy event in Los Angeles. She looked fantastic in a pink Bally suit as she talked about the mini-series with the crowd in the WGA Theater. Check out over 150 pictures in our photo gallery! Big thanks to my friend Bubbles for the HQ images.
The promotion tour for Guerrilla has been non-stop for Freida Pinto, and the past days was spent in the UK. On Sunday, she appeared on the morning show Sunday Brunch, and then on Monday she talked about the new Showtime mini-series on Lorraine. Pictures from both talk shows have been added to our photo gallery!
Freida and Milo Ventimiglia did a photo-shoot for Variety Studio in April, 02. They interview each other to promoting the TV Serie “Guerrilla” that will release this month.
