Intern Jasmine’s Links Of The Daysian

Try to read this without cracking the fuck up: “Kim Jong-Il is the Martin Scorsese of North Korea.” Really? Because his IMDb profile seems to suggest otherwise. [tubefilter]

Freida Pinto looks awesome, oily, and awesomely oily for GQ. [cele|bitchy]

CNN’s Hero of the Year Efren Penaflorida is a hero to his fellow Filipinos. Even better: President Benigno Aquino’s administration may be expanding his system of pushcart classrooms into the public education system. [CNN]

If there were an official DISGRASIAN uniform, we’d build it around this homemade Ferris Bueller vest. [Craftzine - thanks, Elaine!]

Not Slumming It

March 10th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Estée Lauder is about to get more gorgeous: news outlets report that Slumdog Millionaire‘s Freida Pinto, Hollywood’s most enchanting newbie, is set to be the new face of the cosmetics brand.

This is huge news for the young actress, in part because of the yummy price tag (reported at £200,000) that comes from striking such a plum endorsement deal.

But let’s just all collectively cross our fingers that she does not share the fate of her pretty predecessors, Liz Hurley and Gwyneth Paltrow, who both sold millions of mascara tubes with their mugs–and then tumbled into smug, unsavory, irrelevant oblivion, never to be loved again.

The Year of Living Desi-rously

March 5th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

2008 was all about China China China, but 2009 is shaping up to be South Asia’s year. Between the total Oscar dominasian of Slumdog, to the rise and FAIL of Indian-Americans in politics–Bobby Jindal FAIL, Sanjay Gupta FAIL, and Vivek Kundra, who was today named Federal Chief Information Officer, FTW–to M.I.A. popping out her mixtape-making baby right after her upstaging-turn at the Grammys, to the crazazy shit going down between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, to Citi CEO Vikram Pandit becoming the sad face on the precipitous decline of Wall Street, to Freida Pinto becoming a fashion icon and Woody Allen’s muse, good and godawful, Desis are here like paneer, and you betta get used to it.

My favorite Desi success story so far, however, has got to be that of American Idol contestant, Anoop Desai. Anoop, aka “Anoop Dawg,” is the definition of dorklicious, an a cappella-singing group nerd –something our pal Angry Asian Man predicted in private conversation before it became a well-known fact–a normal dude who’s longer on goofy charisma than talent but was nevertheless brought back by the Idol judges to contend tonight for one of the 3 remaining wild-card spots on the show.

I really can’t explain Anoop’s appeal–although j’adore the fact that he wrote his college thesis on the importance of barbecue in the South–but, if the stars continue to align as they have, this guy’s a lock for the Top 12.

Ryan Seacrest’s Red Carpet Preparasian

February 23rd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Usually, Ryan Seacrest does an adequate job on the red carpet, but he totally whiffed yesterday when interviewing the Slumdog Millionaire kids:

“I can’t pronounce all these names”?

“Well, she speaks good English”?

Listen to these Jai Hos here.

I’m A’Freida She Was Way Out of His League Anyway

February 20th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

It was reported this week that Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto, 24, had a “secret husband” or fiance, Rohan Antao, whom she met in college and dumped once the Oscar-nominated movie became a hit. Another rumor floating around is that she and her 18 year-old co-star Dev Patel are now dating.

While these two moves sound climby and actressy…

Slumdog Protestasian

January 23rd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Yesterday, several dozen Mumbai slum residents protested outside of the home of actor Anil Kapoor–who plays the game show host in Slumdog Millionaire with the most delightfully grandiose elocution–because they object to the film’s name.

“I am poor, but don’t call me slumdog,” said Rekha Dhamji, 18. “I don’t want to be referred to as a dog,” she said.


Okay. Fair enough. And while y’all are at it, would you mind protesting the name of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which would have been more aptly titled, The Curious Case of a Big Budget Hollywood Movie Without a Story, or The Curious Case of a Pointless Waste of Two-and-a-Half Hours of My Life that I Can’t Get Back, or The Curious Case of Horrible CG Effects that Made the Child-Version of Button Look Like an Old, Wrinkly Dick? As well as the fact that it received more Oscar noms than “Don’t Call Me” Slumdog Millionaire?

That would be swell! Thanks.

BABEWATCH: Freida Pinto

November 11th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen
Freida Pinto as Latika in Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire

Name: Freida Pinto

Age: 24

Hails from: Mumbai

Occupation: Actor

Why She’s a Babe: The Mumbai-born former model is definitely one of those girls whose beauty flummoxes you. It makes you gasp and stammer and shriek to the gods, “Why does she get to be so pretty?!” It makes you red-faced and flushed and a little wobbly on your feet, as though you’ve been drinking. Freida debuts as an actor in Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, in the role of Latika, love interest to Jamal Malik, a Mumbai slum kid who winds up on the Indian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. There’s already major Oscar buzz surrounding the film, which opens in select cities tomorrow, but even if the movie sucked (which it won’t), we’d be content getting wasted on Freida’s lovely visage for two hours anyway.
