On the heels of “Slumdog Millionaire’s” big night at the Oscars, Freida Pinto, the film’s leading lady is sure to be in high demand. And Freida revealed to Access Hollywood that she already has her dream male co-star picked out – Leonardo DiCaprio. “I had a big crush on him back in school. I had this little Leonardo DiCaprio scrapbook with his picture on the front,” she told Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos. “Now he’s going to think I’m a creep after this!”
But if things don’t work out with Leo, who she got to meet at this year’s Palm Springs Film Festival, the actress already has a backup plan in place for her next leading man.
When Freida was asked, “Who other than Leo is your dream co-star?”
“I’d have to say Jack Nicholson,” she revealed. “He’s the one person I’ve been dying to meet and for some reason, I just haven’t seen him anywhere.”
Unfortunately for Leo and Jack, they will have to wait to work with Freida, as the “Slumdog” beauty has signed on to join Woody Allen’s latest project, according to Variety.
And she’s not the only lovely lady joining the cast. Naomi Watts has also signed on, joining the previously announced Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins.
The project will mark Pinto’s first film since “Slumdog Millionaire,” which was her acting debut.Filming is slated to begin this summer.
Freida has been modeling for the past two years and appeared in runway shows and magazine covers. She has also featured in many television and print advertisements.
