Freida Pinto has stripped off to pose in her underwear for a magazine photo shoot, but admitted nude scenes in her new film weren't easy.

The Slumdog Millionaire star - who had to film nude scenes for her new film Trishna - an Indian-set reworking of Tess Of The d'Urbervilles - appears in a series of raunchy pictures in the latest issue of Esquire magazine.

But Freida said of stripping off on camera: 'It was hard but it was a small crew, and they were good at not making their presence felt.

"They didn't go, 'Quick! She's nearly naked! Get your camera out!'."

The 27-year-old actress insisted she would never appear in gratuitous sex scenes, only ones that were necessary to the film.

Freida, who is dating her Slumdog co-star Dev Patel, also revealed the 21-year-old actor chose her himself to star in the film.

She said: "They asked him, 'Out of the girls, who would you take on a date?' And apparently he said me."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
