Slumdog star has nowhere to live

Los Angeles - Frieda Pinto carries all her belongings in three suitcases because she has nowhere to live.

The Mumbai-born actress – who shot to fame after starring in Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire in 2008 – travels so much for work she has no place to call home.

She told Interview magazine: “I'd like to say I live somewhere, but right now I'm all over the world with my three suitcases that I've been carrying with me for two years. I just keep changing the clothes in the bags.

“Literally, I have no fixed address.

"I call Bombay my home, but I moved to London a bit last year when I was doing the Woody Allen film, and I loved that as my second home. I love New York as well.”

Despite her lack of a permanent home, the 26-year-old screen beauty would hate to return to her life as a struggling actress and admits she was close to quitting the profession before she got her big break.

Frieda – who is dating her Slumdog Millionaire co-star Dev Patel - said: “You always dream of something magical happening, and when it happens to you, it's almost difficult to accept that it actually happened.

“Even though I was lucky, I had a lot of struggles before that.

"I said I was going to give up everything at age 25 and get into event management because nothing was going for me. I used to have a lot of nervous breakdowns.”
