Los angeles: Actress Freida Pinto says that speaking her mind can get her “into trouble” but she will still not shy away from sharing her views.
“I’m not afraid to speak my mind, and that can get me into trouble. For me (social and political activism) is the only thing that matters,” Pinto says.
The 32-year-old, who stars in the Showtime miniseries “Guerrilla”, says she jumped at the opportunity to play the role of Jas, reported People magazine.
“As a female actor it is a lot harder to come across roles that explore every aspect of the character, not just her beauty. But Jas and I are similar in our passion,” she says.
Pinto considers herself “really blessed” to have a career in Hollywood but is also aware of the fickleness of it all and how fleeting stardom can be. And despite any ups and downs she has had through her career, the actress says she would not go back and do anything differently.
“I’m just glad that I did everything I had to do in my 20s and got everything out of my system between 18 and 25. Now I know what I don’t want. I wouldn’t change anything. If you don’t make mistakes, you never learn,” she says.
