Freida Pinto: I won't work with Dev Patel again
Actress Freida Pinto has revealed that she does not intend to work with her boyfriend and Slumdog Millionaire co-star Dev Patel again.
The star said it would be difficult to recapture the chemistry they had in their film debut.
Speaking to You magazine, Pinto said: "I wouldn't want to work with him, but I don't mean that in a bad way. [Dev] said something similar in an interview that was misinterpreted.
"What he was trying to say was that so much happened on Slumdog Millionaire, in terms of it becoming so big, that if the two of us were paired in a film as a couple again it wouldn't live up to that. Nothing ever could. It's too much magic to live up to on screen."
The actress said she finds it difficult to deal with media interest where their relationship is concerned.
"There is double the interest and that's sad because you realise it's not about the work, it's about the gossip," she added.
