This isn't the Freida Pinto people are used to seeing. The 28-year-old actress takes center stage in Bruno Mars' just-released "Gorilla" music video, playing a newbie stripper named Isabella. Actor Luis Gusman also makes a cameo as the seedy club owner who introduces Pinto's character as "the new girl in town."
Mars, who co-wrote the song with Philip Lawrence Ari Levine for his sophomore album, Unorthodox Jukebox, directed the clip. During the six-minute video, the 28-year-old singer watches men throw dollar bills at Pinto as she writhes on a pole, whips her hair back and forth and caresses her body.
While the video is certainly provocative, it's not too surprising, given the lyrical content. "You got your legs up in the sky / With the devil in your eyes," Mars croons. "Let me hear you say you want it all / Say it now, say it now."
In one scene, Mars and Pinto share a steamy kiss in the backset of his car. Near the end of the music video, the Indian beauty saunters onstage and takes the musician's guitar. She then pours tequila on the instrument and lights it on fire. This causes the sprinklers to turn on, drenching a lingerie-clad Pinto.
