Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentFreida Pinto Bio – Smartasses Magazine Freida Selena Pinto (born October 18, 1984) is an Indian actress and professional model born in Mumbai to a wealthy Mangalorean Catholic family. Her surname is Portuguese. Pinto studied at Carmel of St. Joseph School in Malad, Mumbai and completed her Bachelor of Arts with a major in English Literature, and minors in Psychology and Economics. Before beginning her film career, Pinto was engaged to Rohan Antao, who had been her publicist at one point. She ended the relationship in January 2009 and began dating her Slumdog Millionaire co-star Dev Patel. After a six-year relationship, the couple separated amicably in December 2014.

In 2009, Pinto was featured in People magazine’s List of World’s Best Dressed Women and Vogue’s annual list of the top ten most stylish women. After graduation, Pinto worked as a model for two and a half years with Elite Model Management, and appeared in runway shows and magazine covers. She also briefly worked as a television presenter. After six months of auditions, Pinto rose to prominence through the 2008 British drama Slumdog Millionaire, her first appearance in a film. For the role, she won the Breakthrough Performance Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and was nominated for various awards at the British Academy Film Awards, the MTV Movie Awards and the Teen Choice Awards. Pinto has since appeared in several American and British productions, often playing supporting roles. Her biggest commercial success came with the 2011 science fiction film Rise of the Planet of the Apes, as well as the 2011 fantasy-action-drama film, Immortals, in which she played the oracle priestess Phaedra. Pinto also received major attention for portraying the title character in Michael Winterbottom’s Trishna, and her performance in the biographical drama Desert Dancer. Although the Indian media has credited Pinto with breaking the stereotypical image of an Indian woman in foreign films, she has been a lesser-known figure in Indian cinema.

In 2013, Pinto appeared in a video clip for Gucci’s Chime for Change campaign to raise funds and awareness of women’s issues in terms of education, health, and justice. The following year, she participated at the Girls’ rights summit in London, where she called for more progress toward the end of female genital mutilation and child marriage. In February 2016, Pinto announced that she would be a part of a non profit organization We Do It Together, which provides finance for feature films, documentaries, and television shows that focus on women’s empowerment.

Why we think she’s hot:

Freida Pinto worked the modeling circuit for Elite Model Management for over two years before gaining her big break as the female lead in Slumdog Millionaire. Shockingly, she only began to take acting classes after the film debuted, and after she had already won her Screen Actors Guild Award for an Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. Perhaps, that had a little to do with her dream of becoming an actress since the time when she was just a little, five year old Mumbaite, as she was clearly very skilled at her craft. Either way, if you’re a fan of Pinto’s drop dead gorgeousness and female empowerment agenda like we are, you’re obviously glad we took notice of her because, hey, more Freida.
