Freida Pinto Talks Falling for Dev Patel

Freida Pinto Talks Falling for Dev Patel

Freida Pinto wears Stella McCartney in a feature for Interview magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 26-year-old Indian actress had to share with the mag:

On having to audition a lot before Slumdog Millionaire: “Yes, I did. And I was rejected at almost every one of them. [laughs] One person said, ‘She doesn’t look too Indian.’”

On falling for Dev Patel: “I just think it was both of us sitting in the same boat. For both Dev and me, Slumdog was our first film, and it became so massive that you had to preserve and protect what you had before, that innocence, without getting sucked in. And who better to do it with than someone who knows what you’re thinking? Dev had never done a talk show before—his first was [Late Show With] David Letterman – and he said to me, ‘You have to come with me and give me moral support.’ So it was very much a case of being there for my friend. Nothing we did was planned. We were making a lot of mistakes, but we were together, and most of the time our mistakes were looked on as, ‘Oh my god, that’s so cute.’”

    She is so average and not talented at all. Most beautiful actress in Hollywood? LOL. And she is too good for Deve Patel? Okay they are both in the same looks department. I wouldn’t call Freida most beautiful if thats what you mean.
