Slumdog Millionaire wunderkind Dev Patel can't seem to go anywhere these days without attracting the attention of gorgeous women.
Shortly after being stopped on the Bafta red carpet, by Sharon Stone he was enjoying a cosy chat with Sienna Miller at a pre-Oscars bash.
And as he mingled at the party where guests included Stephen Fry, Gordon Ramsay and Elton John, word out in Hollywood was that he and screen love interest Freida Pinto are dating in real life.
Actor Anil Kapoor – the game show host who quizzes Dev's character in the film – claimed that the two had grown close.
Speaking on US radio the Bollywood star said: "I think this is the beginning of something exciting.
"They definitely make a great pair and look very good together… When I meet them I feel there is something happening," he added.
The 18-year-old British actor has, however, been playing down suggestions of a romance with Freida, 24, saying simply: "We are mates".
