Freida Pinto Goes From Slumdog Millionaire to Woody Allen Movie Muse with Watts & Brolin

Freida Pinto is making moves in Hollywood, jumping from Slumdog Millionaire to a role in Woody Allen’s next project!

While the project has yet to be titled, Pinto joins an impressive cast, which includes Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins. She also becomes the latest Allen screen muse, which includes Diane Keaton and Scarlett Johansson.

It was only in November that the Mumbai-based model-actress signed with CAA and began mulling projects, according to Variety.

Blindie’s hoping Woody can work his magic and turn Pinto into an Oscar nominee, just like he did for Penelope Cruz who won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in his flick Vicky Cristina Barcelona!

The London-based tailor celebrated his birthday in the private room last Friday, according to Fox News, with his new girl, NBC’s Ben Silverman, Mariah Carey (and her hubby Nick Cannon) and Lawrence Fishburn.

Blindie’s surprised by the reported hookup between MacPherson (who was previously married to photog Gilles Bensimon and has two kids with French financier Arpad Busson) and Boateng because he has long been photographed with wife Guynel (with whom he has two kids) at his side!

Ga Ga: Pussycat’s Nicole Scherzinger Upgrades Slumdog‘s Bollywood Theme Song ‘Jai Ho’ With Hollywood Remix

Pussycat Dolls’ Nicole Scherzinger has officially upgraded Slumdog Millionaire‘s theme song “Jai Ho” from just another Bollywood dance tune to an award-winning Hollywood track.

Scherzinger teamed up with producer Polow Da Don to remix A.R. Rahman’s “Jai Ho,” which translates to “let there be victory,” to create a sexy dance song that is fast becoming an infectious anthem much like “Beyonce‘s Single Ladies.”

Too bad director Danny Boyle accidentally left choreographer Longines Fernandes, who created the song’s dance sequence for the film’s finale, off of the end credits!
