Freida Pinto torn between life in London and New York

Wednesday August 10, 2011

Freida Pinto has admitted she is torn between living with boyfriend Dev Patel in London and experiencing the glamour of New York life.

The actress told InStyle that the only place she can currently call home is her TV producer sister's apartment in Mumbai.

But when it comes to choosing her own pad, she revealed: "I'm kind of conflicted between London and New York.

"Dev prefers London any day.

"He's been born and brought up here, he knows people here... But I love the nomad life – it wouldn't make a difference to me, London or New York.

"I love London a lot, it's one of my favourite cities in the world.

"But I would love to experience New York as well – and I guess now's the time to do it."

The 26-year-old Planet Of The Apes beauty and Dev - who lives with his parents in Harrow when not filming - both rocketed to fame after Slumdog.

And Freida revealed they support each other through the huge change in their lives

She said: "I always say, I don't think there will be anybody who understands it better than him.

"Not even my family because they were not with me every step of the way, but he, literally, was.

"And I was with him."

But she admits she misses him a lot when they are both working, and finds speaking to him on Skype a torment.

Freida explained: "We use it a lot – and we hate it as well!

"It's like a tease. I also feel it's this pressure: 'Oh my God, he's seeing me after two weeks, I hope my hair is okay'.

"It's just hideous. I think even the most beautiful person looks stupid on Skype."
