Snap happy: Freida showed off her model good looks on the carpet
Since her breakthrough in Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire back in 2008, the actress has worked steadily, appearing alongside Christian Bale on Knight Of Cups and will star in Andy Serkis's forthcoming Jungle Book film.
Freida spoke with E! News last November on the struggles that women face when it comes to how women are perceived in the film industry.
'People are still giving in to the idea of the female characters being objectified or overly sexualised in films and it's working, it's because people are habituated in that and you have to break that,' the actress explained.

'You have to break that in a smart but aggressive way.'
The native Indian added that there are 'still' not a lot of strong women characters, but there are people who are open-minded about that.
'Of course there are certain people who think outside the box, so I wouldn't say that the whole world wants inequality but I guess there are certain barriers,' Freida said.
'I definitely think culture and religion play a massive part and also it's a habit.'
