London: ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ star Freida Pinto has revealed that she felt ashamed when she discovered her “cheesy” advertisements that she had filmed when she was younger had appeared online.
The Indian beauty regularly starred in promotional campaigns as a youngster in order to make some money.
But she was mortified to learn the ads have been uploaded to the Internet following her success as a movie star.
“Some of my ads are now on YouTube and it’s just so embarrassing,” the Daily Express quoted Pinto as saying.
“There is a silly Wrigley chewing-gum ad you should check out. It’s so stupid.
“This guys pops a gum in his mouth and I fall from a tree on to his bike! Then he’s got a girl.
“So from doing cheesy stuff like that to doing something fulfilling as (latest drama) Miral - I think I’ve come a long way,” she added.
