Freida and Dev dated for six years.

She told USA Today: “Everybody has their own little discoveries to make, their own surprises, their own disappointments, and they’re all part and parcel of life.

“There is no way one person can sit down and go, ‘But why did this happen to me?’ or, ‘It was all going well, what the hell happened?’ or ‘No, this just can’t be’ – the denial of it.

“Running away from it is not going to help you find your answers. So we’re facing it. And we’re dealing. Dev and I are best friends. That’s never going to change.”

The couple worked together on Slumdog Millionaire.

Freida and Dev got together in 2008 after meeting on the set of the award-winning Slumdog Millionaire.

After they went their separate ways, he said: “We are incredibly close. She’s just a really generous, patient human being who has been one of the most impactful people on my life.”
