entertainment Updated: Feb 08, 2010 20:36 IST

Slumdog Millionaire

star Dev Patel is in demand for giving love tips.

As Patel's


co-star Nicholas Hoult wants to ask his former for some dating tips.

Hoult who will next be seen in Colin Firth starrer

A Single Man

said he will be asking Patel, whom he acted alongside in British TV series


, for advice on meeting girls, after Patel embarked on a relationship with Freida Pinto,



"I haven't seen Dev for a while. He's obviously very loved up. I've met Freida. I haven't hung out with them, that would be a bit third wheeling," Hoult said.

"But she's very nice. He's done alright for himself there hasn't he? I'm going to have to get some tips," he added.

While 20-year-old Hoult, is never short of female admirers, he doesn't see himself as heartthrob for teenage girls like


actor Robert Pattinson.

"I realised quite early on that I'm quite odd looking, so it's probably best not to aim to be a heartthrob. It doesn't matter, it's awful talking about appearances," he said.
