Freida Pinto is dating her Slumdog co-star Dev Patel
Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel’s mum has finally confirmed what we’ve all thought for ages – that the actor is dating his co-star Freida Pinto.
The nature of their relationship has been the source of gossip for some time, and last week the pair were spotted canoodling over lunch in Israel.
Dev’s mum told the Daily Mirror: ‘Yes, we knew he was flying to Israel to see her.
‘First it was the film and now everything else seems to have slotted into place,’ she continued.
‘Life can’t get any better for him. Freida is really beautiful, and I am really happy for them.’
The pair got up close and personal 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 harbour and an early Champagne dinner at a seaside restaurant.
Onlookers said Pinto, 24, couldn’t keep her hands off Patel, 19, and the loved-up couple spent their time at the table smooching, giggling and holding hands.
Looks like life has imitated art – and we think they make a super-cute couple.
