Freida Pinto, one of the hottest actresses in showbiz and one of ‘People’s’ Most Beautiful Women, looks gorgeous and sexy on the cover of the December 2010 issue of GQ India. The 26-year-old “Slumdog Millionaire” star poses sitting at a table with a knife in her hand and a slit pomegranate in front of her. Well, pretty messy and incredible hot shots!

Considered as being “India’s Hottest Export” and one of the highest paid actresses in Bollywood, Freida Pinto talked in the GQ India interview about her upcoming film “Miral”, Woody Allen, Julian Schnabel, but also about working with some of the world’s most famous directors.

“Miral” is a drama about an orphaned Palestinian girl growing up in the wake of the first Arab-Israeli war. Based on the novel written by Rula Jebreal, the movie directed by Julian Schnabel will hit theaters on March 25, 2011.

Starting her career as a TV show host in India, the beautiful actress made the crucial step on the big screen with the 2008 box office hit “Slumdog Millionaire”, which practically meant her launching point in Hollywood. Now, she has the great opportunity of working with one of the best directors in the industry. She stars in Woody Allen’s latest project “You Will meet A Tall Dark Stranger”.

Pinto told GQ India that “Woody is someone I really respect – because he’s a legend, but it’s not like I got to know everything about his life. With Julian – we ended up sharing a very personal relationship.” In order to clear things up, she also added, “Almost that of a father-daughter.

Freida is in a relationship with “Slumdog Millionaire” co-star Dev Patel, 20, whom she met on the set in 2007. At the time Freida was engaged, but only after she broke off her engagement the couple went public. “The friendship blossomed after the film, it got even stronger. This is all new to us. He’s a lovely boy,” Freida told Britain’s “The Sun” Newspaper.
