The Slumdog Millionaire stars take their on-screen romance off-screen, and into the public eye.
Ever since their hit movie was released, there have been rumors about a supposed off-screen romance. For months, gossip rags have accused her of having a secret husband and him of being a wife-stealer. Even their co-star Anil Kapoor has claimed that the two share a genuine sense of chemistry. And yet, when asked outright by interviewers on the Academy Awards red carpet (and elsewhere) if they were an item, Freida Pinto and Dev Patel denied everything.
Well, it seems that the time for denials is over. Because, as was the case with Angelina and Brad, actions are speaking louder than words when it comes to the Slumdog Millionaire stars and their feelings for each other.
According to the Sun, the two have been spotted together over the past few days in Israel, where Freida, 24, is filming a new movie and Dev,19, is apparently paying her a friendly visit.
Among the places they've been spied? An outdoor cafe, where he, according to the Sun's source, "couldn't take his eyes off her - and she kept snuggling up to get closer to him."
If this is indeed true, then the rumors might also be true that the two were shopping for rings together on Valentine's Day.
Then again, it might also be true that she has a husband.
Or that one of their co-star's dads put her up for sale.
But that's another story.
