Hottie of the Week #6.

Girl crushes.... I mean, I'd be lying if I said my completely straight, and totally in love with a guy self didn't get them every once in a while. There are just some females out there that are so beautiful, it is impossible to not take notice of it (hello, Angelina Jolie).

Anyway, I figured that hottie of the week has had just way too much testosterone lately (psh, as if that is possible), but I figured switching it up is always a healthy thing.

So, this week for hottie of the week, we have our first female hottie!

This female is a part of the biggest hit movie of the year (winner of the Academy Award in pretty much every category) and she herself nabbed a SAG award, and was nominated for a BAFTA award.... I am obviously talking about Ms. Freida Pinto.

Slumdog Millionaire is one of my favorite movies...I honestly don't know if I could ever get sick of watching it, of the beauty of the cinematography, or the amazing message of hope. Plus, hello, Freida Pinto is effing gorgeous. I feel like it's almost unfair how pretty she is (jealousyyyy).

Pinto grew up in India, to two professional parents, and went to school in Mumbai, India, getting her BA in English Literature (I'm telling you, even with girl crushes, I like 'em educated ;)

She played a variety of roles, but really hit it big in her breakthrough role as Latika in Slumdog Millionaire (which really, if you haven't seen it, please rent it immediately. I can almost 100% guarantee you will love it).

Since achieving stardom through Slumdog, Pinto is going to be in an upcoming Woody Allen film (alongside Josh Brolin, Anupam Kher, Anthony Hopkins and Naomi Watts), and recently signed a deal to become the new face of L'Oreal, going back to her original roots as a model (obviously).

She is currently dating her Slumdog Millionaire costar (who some might recognize from my fave show Skins!), Dev Patel.

Who do YOU have a girl crush on? (Or a guy crush, if you're a guy and very comfortable with your sexuality).

I've never seen Slumdog Millionaire but I do love looking at Freida and Dev (separately and together) 'cause they're such beautiful people!

Now as far as girl crushes go, well... I have a ton... But off the top of my head I'd have to say Jordana Brewster, Leighton Meester, Joss Stone, Sienna Miller, and Jessica Lowndes.
