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."
