After a while, even Freida Pinto got a little tired of Slumdog Millionaire. "I felt like people almost got fed up with seeing our faces splattered all over the place," she says. Long after the Oscars and the breathless global embrace ended, the 25-year-old still had collateral damage to contend with. "In the movie, Jamal says, 'She's the most beautiful girl in the world.' I was like, Damn it. That's gonna be the end for me. I'm not going to get anything serious after that!" She needn't have worried; in fact, this fall, the Bombay-born actress will tick off two essential items on the serious-actress bucket list—appearing in a film by Woody Allen, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (out now), in which she plays a cellist who beguiles Josh Brolin from the window of her London flat, and one by Julian Schnabel, Miral (December), playing a Palestinian raised in a Jerusalem orphanage, "sheltered from what's happening outside" until a school project takes her to a refugee camp in the West Bank. The two virile directors couldn't have been more different: "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 kind of personal relationship." For a moment our heart sinks for her real-life boyfriend, fellow Slumdog Dev Patel, until Pinto clarifies: "Almost that of a father-daughter."
