Freida Pinto - Freida Pinto: Fame Was Almost Too Much For Me

Freida Pinto says fame was ''almost too much'' for her.

The 27-year-old actress admits she nearly couldn't come to terms with being a celebrity after starring in 2008 movie 'Slumdog Millionaire', and the brunette beauty felt her co-star and boyfriend Dev Patel was the only person who ''truly understood'' what she was going through.

She explained: ''If I needed to talk to someone about what happened, he was the only one who knew what was going on. It was nice to have those moments and that experience together.

''It took a while to accept what had happened. As much as I was happy with what was going on, it was almost too much to take in for somebody who'd never experienced any of that before.

''Surrounding myself with good people such as family and close friends helped me keep my head on my shoulders.

''That said, the one thing I knew was I had to seize the moment and strike while the iron was hot.''

Despite the couple's busy schedules, Freida admits the pair ''always try to make time for each other'' to ensure their relationship remains intact.

In an interview with Daily Telegraph Australia's Sunday magazine, she added: ''You have to want to keep the relationship going.

''He's filming in LA right now, so this arrangement completely works. I don't know where I'm going for my next film or where he's going for his next project, but we always try to make time for each other. It's difficult with such tight schedules, but the fact you want to make the time is more important.''
