Freida Pinto: Diva in the Making

Posted Friday February 20, 2009 11:45 PM GMT

Fresh off of a pre-Oscar party the previous night, Freida Pinto looked to be soaking up every minute of her newfound stardom as she returned to her Los Angeles hotel on Friday (February 20).

With a Jimmy Choo bag under her arm and an Oscars access pass around her neck, the elegant 24-year-old was all smiles as she exited her limo, appropriately tagged with a “Diva 37” license plate.

Meanwhile, it has just been reported that Freida will be joined at Sunday's Academy Awards by all of her fellow "Slumdog Millionaire" actors who play the three main characters in three stages of their lives, including the children from India.

"I'm very happy that I'm going to the Oscars," 9-year-old "Slumdog" star Rubina Ali told press just hours before leaving for the States. "My friends are saying, 'Your fate is so good.'"
