Freida Pinto Decries Lack of Female Writers and Directors in Entertainment!



The 28-year old ‘Slumdog Millionaire‘ and ‘Immortals‘ star has gone on the record to bring attention to the lack of women in creative behind-the-scenes roles in the male-dominated entertainment industry.

Freida Pinto told CNN recently “The only way to cure that problem is to have more female writers and more female directors. There will be a different perspective when you have women writers and women directors. There is sometimes a misconception that a female director can’t really tackle manly issues and definitely Kathryn Bigelow proves them wrong.”

Does this mean Ms. Pinto is going to put her money where her mouth is and perhaps get into writing or directing in the near future?  Not likely yet as her schedule is packed with more film roles in projects like Terrence Malick‘s ‘Knight of Cups‘ alongside Christian Bale and Richard Raymond‘s ‘Desert Dancer‘ coming out soon.  But perhaps when she has a second to think, she’ll opt to get behind the camera instead of infront of it.  We’re sure she’ll make an excellent director!
