Highlight Story

Actress Freida Pinto has revealed that her role in Woody Allen's new film reflects the break-up in her own life.

The Slumdog Millionaire star believes Woody Allen used her break-up as inspiration for his new movie, You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger.

The actress - who ended her 16-month relationship with fiance Rohan Antao and began dating her Slumdog Millionaire co-star Dev Patel - felt like she was reading account of her own life when she first saw the script.

"When I walked into Woody's office and read the scene in the nursery, where Dia confesses for the first time that she Freida Pintohas doubts about what she is getting into, I was like, 'Has someone been reading the gossip magazines to Woody,'" quoted her as saying.

Freida stars as Dia in the movie. The 25-year-old beauty feels breaking off her engagement was the best decision she ever made.

She explained: "I feel what I did was right. It's my life and if I didn't go through it, I wouldn't be the person I am today, sitting here talking about what happened back then and being a little more knowledgeable about what happens in a relationship."
