Freida Pinto - Freida Pinto Loves Honest Dev

Freida Pinto is grateful for Dev Patel's criticisms.

The 'Trishna' actress - who has been dating her 'Slumdog Millionaire' co-star since they worked on the film in 2007 - likes discussing her work with her boyfriend because she knows he will always give her honest feedback, rather than just say what she wants to hear.

She said: ''I like being able to ask Dev, 'What do you think of this?' He's very honest. He's not, 'You were wonderful darling.' He'll be like, 'Hmmm. The film's not really about you but be happy that you made it.''

The 27-year-old actress also admitted she wishes directors would see past her beauty and offer her more challenging movie roles.

She added in an interview with Culture magazine: ''I wish people would think outside the box when it comes to casting me.

''There's this ultimate satisfaction an actor gets from the effort invested in a part where the transformation takes you as far from yourself as it's possible to go.

''I hope that sort of work comes my way because I feel I can do it.

''I don't think 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' or 'Immortals' had space for that kind of involvement. They want you to give 100 per cent, but the characters don't allow that room for manoeuvre.

''I'm happy I did those films. You realise though, that it's all about getting on set, waiting around doing your job and getting out.''
