Freida Pinto keeps telling Dev Patel to ‘stop being an old man’

Freida Pinto says that her real life boyfriend Dev Patel is so ‘philosophical and mature’ that she has to remind him to act like the 21-year-old he is.

Patel, whose latest movie ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ is currently in cinemas, is much younger than his ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ co-star girlfriend.

Some people don’t actually know that he’s six years younger than I am!

the Independent quoted Pinto as saying.

Despite that the actress doesn’t think he is to young for him because of his ‘old soul’ nature.

He’s too mature. I keep telling him, ‘Stop being an old man!’ He’s just an old soul. The way he speaks and thinks – he’s so philosophical and deep. I’m like, ‘You don’t sound like a 21-year-old to me!’ At least that was not how I was when I was 21.

she said.
