Freida Pinto hints at reason for Dev Patel split
Freida Pinto has hinted that her split from Dev Patel was caused by a midlife crisis at 28.
The 32-year-old actress and her ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ co-star ended their seven-year relationship in 2014 and Freida has admitted that a lot of things in her life changed when she started questioning herself.
She told the Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine: "For me it started at the age of 28, 29. Maybe it’s the body. Maybe it’s something about moving into womanhood from being a girl. You start asking, ‘What do I really want?’
"There comes a point where you’ve got everything you want – career, love, family – but you’ve ignored yourself. Life hits you and you think, ‘What about me? What do I really want?’
"You can be with someone and it can be really good for your growth. That’s what Dev was for me. The seven years I was with him were so impactful. But I ended up being single when I started thinking about these other things.
"For the first time, I finally understand the concept of self-love and self-care. I’m single and happy, and busy. I haven’t been single for a long time. It’s like being born again."
Despite their split, Freida insists that she and 26-year-old Dev – who is currently dating Australian actress Tilda Cobham-Hervey – are still good friends.
She said: "You can’t share such a monumental shift in life, then not be friends. That would be the saddest thing ever."
