Who Wants To Be A Millin-air! star, Freida Pinto, was in London Tuesday night when she rescued a fan from an oncoming car. Metro UK reports:
The actress was shopping in the West End with boyfriend Dev Patel, her co-star in the film, when the fan ran towards them to say hello. But Pinto, 25, who was being followed by photographers, turned to have her picture taken and accidentally bumped into the woman. The fan was sent flying into the middle of Regent Street, near Liberty, just as a car was approaching. A witness said: “As Freida turned around, she bumped into the fan because she didn’t see her.” Pinto ran into the road and helped the woman out of the car’s path, said the witness, adding: “Afterwards, Freida made sure the woman was okay. It was quite a shock for all, especially Freida and the fan.” Neither the fan nor the actress were hurt in the incident.
It’s unclear how a 90-pound Indian chick can send a grown woman “flying into the middle of the street” unless she was Princess Jasmine and trying to show the lady a whole new world with new horizons to pursue. Tell me fan, when did you last let your heart decide? A whole new world, a dazzling place you never knew. But when you’re way up here, it’s crystal clear!
