Freida Pinto is on the cover of Blackbook.
She says she hearts, the alternative Indian cinema industry, a lot, that is often never seen by the West outside of the big Bollywood film studio’s dominance. What Freida alludes to, as the “spice of Hollywood” back into India’s star system is that: a) alternative cinema has an actual storyline. And b) it’s been tough worldwide, so the chances are the realism of the underrepresented genre is a look, for Indian cinema to consider presenting to remain relevant. Good thoughts.
To read more on that, and see Freida’s latest magazine cover, go here.
[This image Smita Patel - great alternative cinema screen legend. Described as being "the realistic actress of Bollywood." Star of my favorite, alternative Bollywood film, Mirch Masala. Image sourced, here].
Smita worked constantly. Non-stop. She took good roles and bad roles, figuring that working within the realistic genre of film making, meant that the roles were going to be okay within this genre–as they were more realistic, therefore her range of emotion would be seen better as an artist rather than a mainstream Bollywood film, where actors just emoted for their next check, not just to sell an actual story with ‘a character going through real’ sh*t.’ Oops… sorry, but that’s what Smita stood for. Also a note for Freida to perhaps consider.
Smita was under-appreciated for the longest time, compared to the pampered poodles of Bollywood’s studio system. She’s legend for not caring and still giving good work playing roles of conflict in stories of substance. Smita gave a lot. I love this woman’s legacy in Indian cinema (and I like my “Bollywood brats?” in their more cheesy films too. Fun. :)
Go Freida Pinto–for raising these thoughts today to grow India’s alternative cinema profile –featuring realistic ‘village life’ narratives in film.

Freida Pinto turns out a show from the pages of GQ Magazine.
Now this is how to deal to a pomegranite. Juicy. Sexy. To the point.
She’s totally banging with that precise-practiced-precision, Hollywood & Bollywood fit pose and her baby mini-machette knife of a Tarantino. I swear Freida’s just invented the photographic format of cookbooks of the future, on iPad Touch & Kindle. Juicy indeed. Frieda does need a bit more sweat glisten on her face though, to complete the action girl look.

It’s worse than watching Miley Cyrus get bled of her tween celebrity blood, in THAT CHAIR pic, that dodgy film director, Adamm Shankman of The Last Song, posted on his Twitter account.
Yes, watching Robert Pattinson, bleed his Twilight blood for the film producers of his new flick Remember Me, is perhaps taking the Pattinson’s star power for granted a little bit too much with vampire loving audiences worldwide.
Here’s R-Patz bleeding fake blood on the set of Remember Me in New York. Thankfully it’s not real bloody from Pattinson’s crazy, stalkerish girl fans in NYC.
As you can see, Robert Pattinson is bringing it for Remember Me! Let’s hope the film has box office success written all over it for the young star who one day wants to be James Bond in his career’s future. Splash

On Horiwood.Com we showcased the Top 10 and FHM’S TOP 20 MOST SEXIEST WOMEN IN THE WORLD for you. Now here’s the next 30, which round out the Top 50 names of show biz to look out for in 2009 for varying degrees of beauty. My one major criticism is… why is BEYONCE the only African American beauty listed in the Top 50? Come now FHM… be proud of your dark sisters too.
21. Mila Kunis… the girl from that 70s show, is still a favorite even as the voice of Meg in Family Guy. When you’re hot… it’s just too hard to hide it. Kunis exemplifies that she’s an unforgettable beauty.
22. Lindsay Lohan… whether you love her or loathe her, Lindsay Lohan brings the Young Hollywood storylines every week that America loves. She’s one of the most scrutinized celebrities in the business, and she handles it all well, (or badly) at just 22 years of age. Like Britney Spears, it’s Lohan’s tremendous strength of spirit, to handle fame’s spotlight we admire, that reveals her beauty somewhere from deep within her fragile frame.
23. Kristen Kreuk… of Smallville is tiny, petite but full of dynamite in the beauty and brains department. She has a Dutch dad and Chinese momma, perhaps a precursor to what the Gosselin girls could do in show biz. Asians rock!
24. Anna Friel… the actress of ABC’s Pushing Daisies is as cute as a button. The Foreign Press think so too, awarding Friel a golden globe for the role.
25. Freida Pinto… is just one of thousands of Bollywood beauties. Her role in Slumdog Millionaire, reminds us here in America, that some of the world’s most beautiful stars EVER are actually found in India and not Hollywood. Pinto bridges both worlds. Fierce!
What a douche! Director producer Adamm Shankman, is turning the set of Miley Cyrus’ new film, The Last Song, into the set of Lolita 2.
Shankman posted controversial pics of Cyrus on his twitter account that show the singer looking more like a stripper than a child actress he is directing. Needless to say Miley’s mother Tish Cyrus is a film producer on this film also.
People’s 100 Most Beautiful People for 2009, get covered by TV reporters. Still don’t know about Kelly Bundy, but hey, congrats Christina Applegate anyway!
The UK’s #1 Sexiest Woman is a star judge on UK Talent Show, X Factor, a big pop star herself as well as the starmaker who helped support and create UK pop sensation Alexandra Burke. Here is the duo above in an interview.
FHM magazine has just released the results for the Sexiest Woman Alive poll in the UK. Unsurprisingly, it’s a Brit that comes in at number 1. But Brit Brit comes in at #4. Not bad for Ms Spears whose on a big comeback kick, and Cheryl Cole at #1 really is so sexy, congrats Cheryl of Girls Aloud pop group.
I’m surprised that Twilight and New Moon’s Kristen Stewart and Nikki Reed never made the top 10. Get with the times UK, I kid! Oh well… next year they will. :)
FHM editor Chris Bell said: “It’s been a revolutionary year in FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women In The World poll – as old favourites such as Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz are rejected in favour of a new wave of female talent.” It’s nice to see Freida Pinto of Slumdog Millionaire fame come in on the list. Go India! Here’s the full list…
Variety is reporting that Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz may be cast in James Mangold‘s as yet untitled rom com film. They story line centers on a woman who has terrible luck with men but finds her path intertwined with that of a mysterious handsome man she meets on a blind date. Sounds perfect for Diaz.
Meanwhile Cruise’s ex, Nicole Kidman, has signed on as Woody Allen‘s latest muse in Allen’s next film. Kidman will join castmates, Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Freida Pinto and Naomi Watts. Sounds like a fun set.
Slumdog Millionaire sensation and The THE BEAUTY OF INDIA, FREIDA PINTO, graces the cover of Indian Vogue. Pinto’s next role will be in an upcoming Woody Allen flick. She’s taking over Hollywood and we like it! Bring it on! Now… if she only found an African American beau, Freida Pinto would truly rule in Tinsel Town next year!!! Of course, I’m kidding!!! Why was she not on the cover of American Vogue? Oh, that’s right, because the lovely, First Lady, MICHELLE OBAMA is. Right on!
