Actress Freida Pinto rose to global superstardom in the hit 2008 Slumdog Millionaire and she has since gone on to enjoy a fair amount of success in her acting career over the past few years. One of the keys to having success in Hollywood for Freida, is the fact that she is in full control of her career and has admitted that she is not afraid to say no to anybody.
Pinto was chatting to the good folks over at the Hindustan Times, when she explained to them, "It is very easy for me to say no. If there is something that I don't believe in, I am the first person to disagree. I have no qualms about refusing anything that does not seem right, and it does not matter who I am dealing with."
She added, "I do have a lot of respect for people who have been around for ages, but if they think that they are infallible and they can dictate terms to me, I will not take it… I am the kind of person who cannot keep my mouth shut. You'll probably see my performances suffer if I didn't see the strength in my character. It is very important for me to understand my character, and only then can I excel at it."
As for her upcoming projects, we are looking forward to seeing Freida Pinto appearing in the movie Knight of Cups, which boasts an all-star cast including Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Isabel Lucas, Joe Manganiello, Imogen Poots, Cate Blanchett and Nicky Whelan, to name just a few. Knight of Cups is written and directed by Terrence Malick and will open on December 11 in the US and January 1, 2016 in the UK.
