Is Dev Patel too young to marry Freida Pinto?

July 01, 2010 11:29 IST

First they denied that they were dating, and now Dev Patel has denied that he is going to marry his Slumdog Millionaire co-star Freida Pinto, 25.

The 20-year-old actor squashed rumours that appeared in several US publications that he's engaged to Freida.

'[When I heard the rumours] I was like, "What? The wedding plans?" I'm 20,' Now Magazine Online quoted him as saying.

Dev, who was spotted with Freida at the New York premiere of M Night Shyamalan's movie, The Last Airbender on Wednesday, also admitted that he is still not comfortable opening about his relationship with Freida.

'It's a bit tricky,' he tells 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.'
