Freida Pinto strips off for shoot

Freida Pinto had to film nude scenes for Trishna

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

Virgo:

You'll have to make an emotional appeal to your boss. Unless things change, you might have to find another job. You're a very tolerant person, but you can't handle toxic behaviour. A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
