PopGoesTheNews.com • British actor Dev Patel celebrated his 21st birthday with his girlfriend and Slumdog Millionaire co-star Freida Pinto – and PopGoesTheNews.com has all the details.
Patel arrived at Montreal's Pierre E. Trudeau airport on Friday night aboard a British Airways flight from London. Asked how he expected to mark his birthday, he replied: "I don't know, it's a bit of a mystery right now."
The star reconnected with Pinto, 26, at the Westin hotel on the edge of Old Montreal. She was in the city to do re-shoots for Immortals, an epic fantasy flick that was shot in Montreal last summer. The couple spent Saturday – Patel's birthday – in their suite and only emerged shortly after 6:30 pm to take a cab ride to the Outremont area, where they stopped to pick up a few items at a Rachelle-Bery health food store.
Patel and Pinto then enjoyed a romantic dinner on the lower level of busy Milos, a popular restaurant on Avenue du parc that specializes in Greek cuisine and seafood. "It was cool," a smiling Patel said of his birthday dinner as the couple climbed into a cab for the ride back to their hotel.
The Slumdog stars were up early on Easter Sunday to catch a morning flight to Los Angeles. (The couple rushed past actress Kelly Rowan and her three-year-old daughter on their way to the screening area.)
Last summer Patel shot down engagement rumors and said he's still trying to deal with being in the spotlight. “It’s a bit tricky,” he told Access Hollywood. “I don’t know what to tell everyone because it’s my private thing. But it’s part and parcel of the industry so you just learn to get over the awkwardness and just play with it.”
