Freida Pinto Talks Filming Love Scene For ‘Immortals’ [AUDIO]
The lovely Freida Pinto called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” to talk about filming a love scene on the first day of production on “Immortals,” and to clear up a rumor about her boyfriend Dev Patel.
Freida explained the character she plays in “Immortals,” and the tricky task she has ahead of her in the movie.
“I play the oracle princess Phaedra, who has the power to see the future. Through one of her visions she sees that Henry Cavill‘s character (Theseus) is the chosen one who will defend and defeat the evil King Hyperion. My mission in the film is to convince him about my vision. Initially he is not convinced because he thinks I’m crazy.”
Not only does Phaedra have to convince Theseus of her vision, but she also must be careful to not get too affectionate with anyone since her gift can be taken away. “She is a virgin oracle, and the moment she loses her virginity she loses her gift,” said Freida.
The star hinted that her character’s gift will be lost since she had to shoot a love scene on the first day of filming. Freida explained she wasn’t phased by the intimate scene. “The way that I look at it is that its awkward on either day 1 or day 50, I might as well get it done with, and out of the way,” she said.
Freida also went on to debunk the gossip that she and boyfriend Dev Patel had moved in to a 1.5 million dollar home together in Santa Monica. It turns out the home is Freida’s stylist’s home. The star was spotted carrying a box of clothing into the home fueling the rumors. “It was one box. I couldn’t possibly move into a 1.5 million house with one box,” Freida joked.
