Dev Patel & Freida Pinto’s Real-Life Romance


The romantic love affair that we got to enjoy on the big screen between Dev Patel and Freida Pinto in Slumdog Millionaire has, apparently, spilled over into real life. For weeks there has been speculation that the co-stars were more than just friends … and at last Dev Patel’s mother is spilling the beans that the couple are really dating in real life. Here is a recent photo of Dev and Freida lookin’ all couplely in Israel (where she is currently filming her next movie) and the deets on their relationship from Mama Patel:

After much speculation about the nature of the relationship involving Slumdog Millionaire stars Dev Patel and Freida Pinto, Patel’s mother Anita has confirmed to a British newspaper that the pair are very much a couple. “First it was the film and now everything else seems to have slotted into place,” Mrs. Patel is quoted as saying in Monday’s Daily Mirror. “Life can’t get any better for him. Freida is really beautiful, and I am really happy for them.” Her comments come just days after Patel, 19, jetted to Israel to spend a whirlwind date with the Mumbai beauty, 24. “Yes, we knew he was flying to Israel to see her,” said Patel’s mother. The pair rendezvoused in Tel Aviv as Pinto took time off from filming her latest movie in Jerusalem. The couple spent a few hours together in a hotel before emerging for a stroll around the harbor and an early champagne dinner at a seaside restaurant. Onlookers said Pinto couldn’t keep her hands off Patel. The couple spent their time at the table smooching and holding hands to the delight of a group of Japanese tourists who happened to pass by.

Aww … I love it … these two make such a cute couple. I think they are a great match for each other and what better way to fall in love than while making the Academy Award winning Best Picture of the year. So happy to see young love spring anew … here’s hoping these two stay together for a long time to come. Love them!!

    Have you seen “Skins” with Dev? I LOVE that show. Only seasons 1 and 2 have made it to the US, but I think you’d really like it.

  • Leanna

    Take back! Just read your earlier post. See! I KNEW you’d like Skins! Haha.

    • @Leanna — to be perfectly honest, I only went to see Slumdog Millionaire in the theaters cuz I found out Dev Patel from Skins was in it … little did I know it would be such an amazing film

  • Lana

    I love Skins and this couple, despite the fact of having an attraction to Dev. He isn’t as skinny as he was on Skins… which is a good thing ;)

  • Tracy

    Skins is AMAZING and I love him in it. Freida is stunning. But a 24 year old woman dating a 19 year old boy is strange.
