Random Thoughts on a Friday Afternoon

March 27, 2009 2 comments

– Apparently Freida Pinto has become the highest grossing Indian actress, bigger than Aishwarya and Katrina Kaif, after landing various big name roles in Hollywood including one working with Woody Allen (!). I’m wondering if the Bollywood A-List are going to bitchslap this newcomer with no Bollywood pedigree and who hasnt done the hard yards… or if they’ll try to get on her back and ride the wave into Hollywood.

– People who do those Herald Sun quizzes in a big group in cafes really loudly are annoying…. ANNOYING! Because I constantly want to yell out the answers while those dumb-arses go “umm” “arr” “umm”… 

Idiot 1: “What country is Sa…sas…sak… sask…. Saskatchewan a province in?”

Idiot 2: “Duhhhh… dunno”

Idiot 3: “Omfg what?” 

Idiot 4: “India? Afghanistan?”

Me (in my head): “Canada, you fools! CANADA!”

– Can’t wait to get my new iPhone on Tuesday. woOt! I’ve been iPhoneless for far too long now…

– Having finished Fitzgerald’s “Great Gatsby” which deserves all the praise that it gets (it was awesome) I am now reading Vikas Swarup’s Q&A/Slumdog Millionaire… and well, given my extremely low expectations for it, it’s been moderately entertaining (while being as poorly written as I expected).


Slumdog’s Freida Pinto’s sexy photoshoot for Complex Magazine

Hmm one has to wonder what her mum will think of this… and what will the Sri Ram Sena think? Will Amitabh Bachchan blog about it? I for one welcome Freda’s openness to such photos, they aren’t too racy and I particularly like this one. 

Her choice of magazine, however, is not so commendable. Nothing against Complex but couldn’t she have chosen a classier publication? Vanity Fair this is not.

Some excerpts from the interview:

Would you ever do nudity or a sex scene?

I don’t think I’d have an issue [doing a love scene], but it all depends on the director—what kind of work he’s done in the past. In India, I probably wouldn’t do something like that; it’s kind of taboo. It usually gets cut off at the censorship board level, so what’s the point of having shot it?


And her inanely bimboistic responses to some interview questions continue…

What’s the best way for a guy to approach you?

Back in college, if boys did the most stupid thing, like compose a silly song, I’d listen. It could be something really stupid, like a rap for all I care. 

Have you ever used your acting abilities to manipulate men?

Hmm… [Laughs.] If you have it, you gotta use it.
