Freida Pinto is set to turn down a role as a Bond girl in the next 007 movie because she doesn't want to be typecast
Freida Pinto is set to turn down a role as a Bond girl.
The 'Slumdog Millionaire' actress - who is wanted by producers to star opposite Daniel Craig in the next 007 adventure - won't accept the part because she thinks it could ruin her image.
A source said: "She's been inundated with offers following the success of 'Slumdog'. Because of this she can afford to be choosy and take only the roles that she feels are right for her. Right now that doesn't include being a Bond girl. That's not the kind of image she wants to project although she is flattered to be linked to the Bond franchise."
It was recently reported the 24-year-old beauty had been invited for a screen test for the next film in the spy series by producer Barbara Broccoli.
A source said: "Freida came to the attention of the team when they were casting 'Quantum of Solace'. She was too young at the time to have a part as a love interest for a secret agent.
"But she has blossomed into an incredibly stunning young woman and would look perfect on Daniel's arm."
The stunning 24-year-old actress has reportedly accepted a part in Woody Allen's next movie which will be shot in London.
