'Slumdog Millionaire' star Freida Pinto talks Woody Allen

Posted on

Mere hours after her movie won Best Picture at the Oscars, Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto announced that she’ll appear in the next Woody Allen movie, alongside Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins. EW caught up with the rising Indian actress on Monday morning in L.A. and asked her about the prospect of working for the legendary filmmaker (who just directed Penelope Cruz to a Best Supporting Actress win in Vicky Cristina Barcelona). “I haven’t even read the script. I spoke to him for 10 minutes. I’m going to New

York to meet him,” Pinto revealed. “It happened literally last week, just before I came here for

the Oscars. The sweetest Oscar gift ever. I’m going to do it because it’s Woody

Allen.” –Dave Karger
