I AM NOT AFRAID TO SPEAK MY MIND: FREIDA
Expressing her views on political issues can put her in the soup, but Frieda Pinto won’t stop
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.
