Mag Rack: Freida Pinto Covers Flaunt Magazine for July 2012

Fabulous Freida

Proving once and for all in a pictorial for US Flaunt July 2012 that there is more to her than just playing the damsel-in-distress with the exotic looks. These photos bring to mind the blaxploitation era heroines portrayed by actress by Pam Grier in the 1970s, a no-nonsense crime-fighting sexy woman who was not to be messed around with. Well done Freida! This was totally unexpected. I hope this helps people see her in a different light and that we get to see her in more diverse roles from here on.

Freida Fabulous
