Actress Freida Pinto says that she never backs out speaking her mind though the habit gets her 'into trouble'.
"I'm not afraid to speak my mind, and that can get meinto trouble. For me (social and political activism) is the only thing that matters", Pinto says.
The 32-year-old, who stars in the Show time mini series 'Guerrilla', says she jumped at the opportunity to play the role of Jas, reported People magazine.
"As a female actor it is a lot harder to come acrossroles that explore every aspect of the character, not just her beauty. But Jas and I are similar in our passion", she says.
Pinto considers herself 'really blessed' to have a career in Hollywood but is also aware of the fickleness of it all andhow fleeting stardom can be.
And despite any ups and downs shehas had through her career, the actress says she would not go back and do anything differently.
"I'm just glad that I did everything I had to do in my 20s and got everything out of my system between 18 and 25. Now I know what I don?t want. I wouldn't change anything. If you don't make mistakes, you never learn", she says.
