Freida proud to break Hollywood stereotypes


London, Nov 20 (IANS) "Slumdog Millionaire" actress Freida Pinto is proud of the way she managed to break Hollywood stereotypes.

"I strongly believe that I am actually breaking down cultural barriers. I find it very interesting these days that films are bringing in so many people of different ethnicities and I'm proud to be a part of that cultural shift," quoted her as saying.

"I feel really happy that I have broken that stereotype that 'it is not possible'. Because I personally think that anything is possible. I feel the timing is right as well. The world is getting much smaller and that's the best way to embrace it."

Freida says she is glad to offer a new dimension to movies.

"Those other actresses have their own appeal and they bring whatever they bring to a film while I bring something that I do not particularly feel has been explored much in Hollywood."

"Ethnicity aside, we're all humans. That's what I believe," she said.
