Freida Pinto Bond Girl Snub–“Slumdog” Star Turns Down James Bond


Freida Pinto says 00-NO!

The stunning Indian-born actress– who got her star in the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire–is set to turn down a role as a legendary Bond Girl because she fears the sexy role could ruin her image.

Bond producer Barbara Broccoliant wants Freida, 24, to star opposite Daniel Craig in the next 007 adventure, but industry tipsters say the star has already decided to snub the part .

A source tells The Boston Globe: “She’s been inundated with offers following the success of ‘Slumdog’. Because of this she can afford to be choosy and take only the roles that she feels are right for her. Right now that doesn’t include being a Bond girl. That’s not the kind of image she wants to project although she is flattered to be linked to the Bond franchise.”

Freida has accepted a part in the next movie from acclaimed director Woody Allen, which will be shot in London.
