Gorilla actress Freida Pinto has consistently impressed us with her fashion choices. In February 2016, she stunned once again at the premiere of her short film “Two Bellmen Two” held at JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A.Live.

3 years earlier, she stripped down to her underwear in the music video for “Gorilla,” a song by American singer-songwriter Bruno Mars from his second studio album Unorthodox Jukebox (2012).

Playing the role of a stripper named Isabella in a South of the Border strip zoo named “La Jungla,” she unleashed a raunchy new image by writhing around in lingerie as a sexy stripper-cum-pole dancer.
While Freida Pinto strips her clothes with such rage that sparks fall from the ceiling, Bruno stares at her intensely singing “You and me baby making love like gorillas”
Many of her Indian fans were shocked by her sudden image change. Later in the music video, Freida makes out with the singer in the backseat of a steamy car.
“Freida’s look in Gorilla is quite a departure from what we otherwise see. Apparently, when she was approached with this opportunity, she knew that this would be a reincarnation of sorts for her and she was quite thrilled to do it, being the risk-taker that she is,” Freida’s publicist said in a statement.

“I’ve got to tip my hat to Bruno for that one. We wanted to do a stripper, and we wanted a name, but there were no other names thrown around besides Freida Pinto,” Mars’ regular collaborator Cameron Duddy told MTV about the casting of Freida Pinto.
“And I said ‘Aw man, she’s so safe, it may be difficult if you go that route.’ And he was like ‘Listen dude, it’s important to the video to use someone who hasn’t been seen in this light before.’ It was a gamble, and I wasn’t all the way sure about it, but I trusted his instincts …and he was right.”
“She’s an actress, so for her, it was about grasping her character’s background, and then getting up there and doing it,” Duddy said about her role as bad-bitch stripper Isabella in the music video.
At the premiere of Two Bellmen Two, the then 31-year-old actress stole the spotlight in an Alexander Lewis ensemble as she joined her co-stars on the black carpet.

Freida showcased her toned arms and hid her stomach in a rose gold crop top. She teamed the metallic garment with a crystal-embellished high-waisted sheer lace skirt, which fell a couple of inches below her knees.
