Ac­tor Freida Pinto (above) ad­mits that speak­ing her mind can get her in the soup, but she will still not shy away from shar­ing her views.

“I’m not afraid to speak my mind and that can get me into trou­ble. For me (so­cial and po­lit­i­cal ac­tivism) is the only thing that mat­ters,” she says.

The 32-year-old, who stars in the mini-se­ries Guer­rilla, says she jumped at the op­por­tu­nity to play the role of Jas, re­ported Peo­ple mag­a­zine.

“As a fe­male ac­tor, it is a lot harder to come across roles that ex­plore every as­pect of the char­ac­ter, not just her beauty. But Jas and I are sim­i­lar in our pas­sion,” she says.

Pinto con­sid­ers her­self to be blessed to have a ca­reer in Hol­ly­wood but is also aware of the fick­le­ness of it.

And de­spite the ups and downs, she has had in her ca­reer, the ac­tor says that she would not go back and do any­thing dif­fer­ently.

“I’m just glad that I did ev­ery­thing I had to do in my ’20s and got ev­ery­thing out of my sys­tem be­tween 18 and 25. Now I know what I don’t want. I wouldn’t change any­thing. If you don’t make mis­takes, you never learn,” she says.
