Freida Pinto signed up to Immortals for the men
This dramedy has a star-studded female cast that includes Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, Jada Pinkett Smith, Carrie Fisher, Cloris Leachman, Debi Mazar, Bette Midler and Candice Bergen. It's an update of the 1939 film of the same name which was based on the play by Clare Booth Luce. Written and directed by Diane English, 2008's "The Women" centers on what happens to four friends (Ryan, Bening, Messing and Smith) after one of their husbands gets involved in an affair with Mendes' character.
Freida Pinto is excited about her new movie because it has so many scantily clad men.
The Mumbai-born actress revealed she signed up to star in the fantasy-action movie 'Immortals' when she realised she would be covered up while the male actors including Mickey Rourke, Henry Cavill and Kellen Lutz would be wearing very little.
She said: "It was very interesting when I learned that the men were going to be objectified and the women could just enjoy themselves. I was excited about doing a project where I was all covered but the men had these tiny miniskirts on. Sometimes the skirt was almost not there!"
Freida plays the oracle priestess Phaedra who can see the future in the movie about the exploits about the mythical hero Theseus but she revealed her biggest worry was trying to act in front of a green screen.
She told Interview magazine: "The director, Tarsem Singh, is a visualist - his mind is almost like a child's imagination. He brings to life what some people can only imagine. The movie was shot using a green screen, which made me nervous at first, but then I realised you just have to let your imagination flow."
