Freida Pinto - Freida Pinto's Schoolgirl Crush On Leonardo Dicaprio

Freida Pinto had a schoolgirl crush on Leonardo DiCaprio.

The 27-year-old star admits the 'J. Edgar' actor was a regular feature of her teenage fantasies.

She said: ''As a teenager you have all kinds of dreams. And Leonardo's part of them!''

Now living with real-life boyfriend Dev Patel, 21, - who handpicked her to play his love interest in 'Slumdog Millionaire' - Freida says they like to laugh at their early interviews on YouTube.

She told Esquire magazine: ''The two of us are all over the place.

''We're laughing at each other's jokes and they're not funny at all, but we're just encouraging each other.

''Now I've learned all these tricks. Always smile, and look slowly from left to the right. But in 2009, I was new to all of it. It was the 'Alice in Wonderland' effect. Angelina Jolie would walk past and I was, like, 'Seriously?'''

The actress recently stripped off for a nude scene in 'Trishna' - an Indian reworking of 'Tess Of The d'Urbervilles' - although it was not an easy experience.

She said: ''It was hard but it was a small crew, and they were good at not making their presence felt.

''They didn't go, 'Quick! She's nearly naked! Get your camera out!'''
