Freida Pinto proud of Dev Patel’s success
Freida Pinto and Dev Patel were together for seven years
Actress Frieda Pinto says she is happy for her ex-boyfriend Dev Patel’s success in Hollywood.
The 32-year-old actress and her Slumdog Millionaire co-star ended their seven-year relationship in 2014 but have remained friends, reported Contactmusic.
“At the end of the day he’s a fellow actor and my friend.
I’ve seen the hard work he’s put in, and seeing it pay off (by winning the BAFTA) is the most beautiful thing.
“How could I not feel proud? He was fantastic in that film (Lion),” Freida says.
The actress says she has learnt a lot from their relationship.
“People come and go and everyone teaches you something.
“You need to embrace the good and bad, the ugly and beautiful.
“I’m not a love guru. I don’t have any tips on how to keep a break-up friendly. Just be open and honest.
“When you’re in a relationship, you’re in a relationship.
“You’re in it because you love the person. Things like age and wealth, none of it matters. You make it work, that’s it,” she says.
