Nicole Kidman Felt Very Maternal Towards Dev Patel While Shooting 'Lion'!

Nicole Kidman couldn’t help being maternal towards Dev Patel while shooting their critically-acclaimed film Lion!

“I was maternal to him. I was pretty much in character playing the role in the sense that I had my own children there, I was working with little Sunny who plays young Saroo, and then big Dev,” the 49-year-old actress, who plays Dev‘s adoptive mother Sue in the flick, recently expressed.

“I’ve gotten to know Dev, the man, separate from Saroo in terms of just recently promoting the film. I really just related to him as a mother working on the film, I would stroke his hair, touch his face and hold his hand. He kind of just gave permission for that, which was terrific,” Nicole added. “That’s how I primarily related to him during the shoot. I also think now you’ll see Dev as a leading man. Not as an Indian man, not as anything other than a leading man and I look forward to watching his journey into all of that now. I think he’s displayed that in this.”

Pictured: Nicole and Dev posing for photographs together at a special VIP screening for Lion at The May Fair Hotel on Thursday (December 15) in London, England.

That same day, Nicole was spotted all bundled up while making her way inside the BBC Radio 2 studios to promote Lion.
