Slumdog Millionaire's Surprise Stars
As the Little Movie That Could Chugs Toward Oscar Night, the Breakout Sensation's Young Leads—Dev Patel and Freida Pinto—enjoy the Ride
The newcomers have won over high-powered Hollywood fans such as Clint Eastwood and Kate Winslet. "At the SAG Awards I told Angelina [Jolie] the Indian press writes funny things about me," says Pinto. "She's like, 'Just enjoy, because it's your moment. You bask in the glory and don't let other people invade that space.'"
For Oscar night Patel—who, like Pinto, is single—will "probably bring my mum [Anita, an elder care worker]. She's my good luck charm—I brought her to all my auditions." Pinto has chosen neither a date nor a dress. "I'll definitely keep it young, simple and fresh," she says of her gown, which won't likely sport a train: "I had one at the Golden Globes, and Dev stepped on it and ripped it!"
For now, Pinto—whom Patel calls "stunning, but quite the goof"—is hoping to conquer her lifelong clumsiness: "Imagine if I fell down on the red carpet!" And Patel simply wishes he'll never wake up. "I'm really living the dream," says Patel. "Every bit of it."
