Freida Pinto - Freida Pinto Says Dev Patel Is 'Dramatic'

Freida Pinto says Dev Patel is really dramatic at home.

The 27-year-old beauty has been dating her 'Slumdog Millionaire' co-star since they worked on the film together in 2007 and Freida believes people don't know how talented Dev is because he has such a ''massive'' range of emotions.

She told Nylon magazine: ''Dev has always been an amazing actor, and I feel people have not tapped into a quarter of what he's capable of - not even a tenth of it. Being at home with him, I know how dramatic he can be and I know his range of emotions are, like, massive.''

However, Freida admitted she was equally dramatic when she was younger and often put on shows for her family at home.

She said: ''I'd be like, 'Time to present!''' I'd sing, I'd dance - I'd just put on a solo show like a schizo, playing all the characters.''

Although Freida is proud of her Indian heritage, she doesn't want it to dictate the parts she gets.

She explained: ''Sometimes I get attacked for wanting to not just be an 'Indian actress.' It's funny because I think a British actor can play an American or an Australian or French. But when I try and play roles where I could physically fit into that character, but maybe I'm not from that country, people are like, 'Wait, why is an Indian actress playing that?' But why not, you know?''
