Great news! Freida Pinto is featured among W Magazine’s honorees in their Best Performances of 2012 portfolio! The 33 stars on the list (including Daniel Day-Lewis, Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams, Javier Bardem, Marion Cotillard and many more) are mentioned with some great portraits and quotes on their roles. Freida Pinto, honored for her role in Trishna (rightfully so!) looks natural and beautiful in her photo, seen to the left. Here’s what she said in the magazine. A scan of her page will be added to the gallery soon.
“It was much more difficult to do a death scene than a sex scene for Trishna. The sex scenes were disturbing: Trishna is a submissive person, and she is having sex in a submissive way, which is so not me. But I have never died, and I did not want to die in a gimmicky or comical way. It is hard to fake stabbing yourself with great intensity. I was so uncomfortable, I started to laugh.”
Two days ago Freida Pinto participated in a press conference held to promote the release of Trishna. She looked gorgeous in a purple dress (which, by the way, is the same outfit she wore to the taping of Conan) as she discussed the movie with the press.

I’m back from traveling and ready to catch up with all that’s happened since I last updated Freida Pinto Fan! She’s attended two special screenings of Trishna – one held in Los Angeles and the other in New York. As always, Freida looked absolutely gorgeous at both events. More to be added soon; stay tuned!
It’s finally here – Trishna is released in US theaters today! The film, loosely based on Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles, stars Freida Pinto and Jay Ahmed in the leads. It’s been given positive reviews, currently with a 75% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.com, with many of them praising Freida’s portrayal of Trishna.

Last night Freida Pinto attended the US premiere of Trishna during the Tribeca Film Festival. She looked fantastic in a red Gucci suit as she walked the red carpet at the screening. After, she continued to the official party held to celebrate the premiere. Almost 80 pictures from the events have been added to our photo gallery. What do you think of her look?
The very first theatrical trailer of Trishna for the US audience has been released. It gives us a deeper look at the relationship between Trishna and Jay – and I can’t tell you how excited I am to see this movie! Freida seems to bring such a fantastic performance (and according to the majority of the reviews, she truly did) to her character. Be sure to watch the trailer at our video archive and take a look at the stunning HD screencaptures in the gallery.
As reported before, Trishna is released in UK cinemas today! The drama, written and directed by Michael Winterbottom, stars Freida Pinto in the title role and Riz Ahmed as Jay. It’s been given good reviews by UK movie critics, and Freida’s been praised for her performance by both critics and actors. So I’d really recommend you to go see it. If you do, be sure to write your opinion here at Freida Pinto Fan! The UK theatrical trailer has been added to our video archive, as well.
Earlier today the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival announced the films for its Spotlight, Cinemania, and Special Screening sections. One of the films to have its US premiere at the festival (to be held April 18–29) is Michael Winterbottom’s Trishna! More will be reported once we know what date Trishna will screen, and whether Freida Pinto will attend the showing or not. Here’s what the official website said of the movie:
Trishna, directed and written by Michael Winterbottom. (UK) – U.S. Premiere, Narrative. Again proving his endless versatility in his fifth film at Tribeca, prolific director Michael Winterbottom (The Road to Guantanamo, last year’s The Trip)adapts Thomas Hardy’s classic Victorian melodrama Tess of the d’Urbervilles to all the beauty and blight of contemporary India, where the budding love between a peasant woman and the son of a wealthy Englishman is strained by old prejudices and class divides. The radiant Freida Pinto stars. In English, Hindi with subtitles. An IFC Films release.
In related news, a date for the US theatrical release for Trishna has been released. It will get a limited release on July 13, with hopes of getting an audience and receive a wide release later on.
