London: Freida Pinto has revealed that she has been passionate about acting and said that she was always meant to be a performer, even as a child.
The ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ star made the revelations in an interview with Nylon magazine, which has chosen her as this month’s cover girl.
The 27-year-old actress said that she’d dance for her family at their kitchen table and say: “Time to present!’ I’d sing, I’d dance - I’d just put on a solo show like a schizo, playing all the characters.”
Pinto added that her goal is to play a wide range of ethnicities on the big screen.
“Sometimes I get attacked for wanting to not just be an ‘Indian Actress.’ It’s funny because I think a British actor can play an American or an Australian or French.
“But when I try and play roles where I could physically fit into that character, but maybe I’m not from that country, people are like, ‘Wait, why is an Indian actress playing that?’ But why not, you know?” she added.
The stunning 27-year-old actress wore a fun ensemble to the magazine’s 13th anniversary party in West Hollywood tonight.
Pinto eschewed her typical glamour girl look in favour of a short, kitschy dress.
The frock featured a pale grey top with a pink band in the middle and a yellow skirt with an old-fashioned truck decal.
