Mother, writer and daydreamer. Also chocoholic and chick-flick lover. But mainly mommy. To two boys, at that! When not escorting my Elder One (EO) to karate class, I'm trying to get in as many cuddles as possible from my Younger One (YO). And when not doing either, I'm hard-at-work trying to maintain a steady relationship with my laptop. And as for the Man I Married (MIM), well, let’s just put it this way – even though we share a bedroom, our most meaningful conversations are held over the cell-phone!

Miss I'm-Too-Big-For-My-Red-Carpet-Stilettos

Dear Ms. Pinto,

You are just one film old. And even then, your role was pretty blink and you'll miss it. And you weren't great even in those few stills. Let's face it, those kids could run circles around you and you'd get all dizzy and faint.

You claim you're all 'international now'? (Calcutta Times, pg.1, Feb. 26th 2009) When were you even 'national', sweetheart? And just what are you implying...that anything 'national' is not good enough for you?

So after Woody Allen, what next? Pink Panther 3?!?

Perfectly said. I so agree with you. I never quite understood what was all the fuss about her. You shopuld read how Shobhaa De's blog, expressing her love for Ms. Pinto. She is such a two bit nothing it seems. The kids were the real stars and no one is talking about them!

LOL!

I agree ...quite sick of watching her in the papers every day!

Anamika said...

On the other hand I am so full of glee because I keep imagining the Ice Maiden going all green seeing so much attention on this nobody and also all the fashion jackpots she is hitting. I say go girl! :D

(This is probably my first comment on your blog. I read regularly though)

Mamma mia! Me a mamma? said...

@ Monika, Ansh; Mystic, Namesake and Chandni : Did you read the latest?? She'll be opposite Antonio Banderas!! Yes, my gills are green!

@ Renu & Anamika : Welcome and thanks for the comments!

Ms. Pinto was at the right place at the right time, me thinks. She has a quality about her that would attract the likes of certain genre of artists. Her role really wasn't defined and I suppose it's early to say what she can or cannot do. :-)

just read thru the post and the comments and can't help thinking how petty you all sound.. So a young girl has found her fifteen minutes of fame. Can't you just let it be? Its not like she DEMANDED that the international media make such a fuss of her. But if they do, hey, who's she to refuse.. would you?
