Washington (ANI): Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto wants to land a role alongside her schoolgirl crush Leonardo DiCaprio. While growing up in Mumbai, India, the beauty was infatuated with the Titanic. And now after being catapulted to fame with her role in Danny Boyle's Oscar-winning film, she has set her sights on sharing some screen time with the Hollywood heartthrob, reports Contactmusic.
She tells Access Hollywood, “I had a big crush on him back in school. I had this little Leonardo DiCaprio scrapbook with his picture on the front. Now he's going to think I'm a creep after this!"
But if she fails to land DiCaprio as her leading man, Pinto has a back-up in mind. She adds, "I'd have to say Jack Nicholson. He's the one person I've been dying to meet and for some reason, I just haven't seen him anywhere."
