Freida Pinto Models Lingerie In Esquire; Discusses Nude Scenes In New Film 'Trishna'

The actress is living with her former "Slumdog Millionaire" costar, Dev Patel, in London.

Freida Pinto is definitely shedding her good girl image, along with her clothes. The actress, who most recently starred in The Immortals, appears naked in a sex scene in Trishna, an Indian reworking of Thomas Hardy's novel "Tess of the Durbevilles" -- directed by Michael Winterbottom

And now she's posing in some very skimpy lingerie on the cover of (and inside) the April edition of British Esquire.

In the accompanying article, she talkes about her nude scenes, and whether or not the film will even be released in her home country, India, due to their strict censorship policies. 

On love scenes:  "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!'"

On an Indian release:  “Even if it doesn’t, the people who want to see it will find a way to get an uncensored copy.”

Pinto is now living with her English boyfriend Dev Patel, 21, who handpicked her to be his love interest in Millionaire. She recalls: "They asked him, 'Out of all the girls, who would you take on a date?' And apparently he said me."

And although she stripped for Winterbottom's movie, fans shouldn't expect nude scenes to become de riguer for the actress.

"If you’re just doing a nude scene in order for everyone to, like, w*** off or something, then that’s not my thing at all."
