Rise of the Planet of the Apes actress Freida Pinto has revealed that she becomes very self conscious, when having a conversation with her boyfriend, and former Slumdog Millionaire co star, Dev Patel over Skype. The couple often spend time apart due to work commitments and Skype is the ideal way to catch up.
Freida explained, “We use it a lot – and we hate it as well! It’s like a tease. I also feel it’s this pressure: ‘Oh my God, he’s seeing me after two weeks, I hope my hair is okay.’ It’s just hideous. I think even the most beautiful person looks stupid on Skype.” She also revealed that she and Dev are so close due to their rise to fame at the same time.
Pinto added, “I always say, I don’t think there will be anybody who understands it better than him. Not even my family – because they were not with me every step of the way, but he, literally, was. And I was with him.” Freida Pinto can currently be seen starring in Rise of the Planet of the Apes alongside James Franco and Tom Felton.
