Freida Pinto, 24, has enjoyed a meteoric rise due to Slumdog Millionaire’s success and plethora of Oscar nominations. And like what happens with all small town girls when they find stardom, Freida decided to dump her fiance, a guy she’s been with since college.
“Freida realised she had been presented with an incredible opportunity but would not be able to make the most of it if she was tied down. She knew that she had to put acting first from now on.
“She and Rohan talked on the phone about finding a way to make it work—but her circumstances had changed so much they knew it wasn’t to be.”
Being married at 24 when you’re a big celebrity is the kiss of death. Freida probably told him about the pressures of fame and that it’s going to cause problems because he won’t ever “get” her. And also that George Clooney might one day want to boink her. How can she accept if she’s engaged? I mean, she could, but she’d feel kind of guilty about it. She really doesn’t want to feel guilty. So, you see, breaking-up is for the best. It’s good to let them down gently.
