Freida Pinto inspires Woody

September 26th, 2010

Freida Pinto believes Woody Allen used her break-up as inspiration for his new movie.

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 first saw the script for the filmmaker's latest project 'You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger'.

Speaking about the movie - in which Freida stars as Dia - she said: "When I walked into Woody's office and read the scene in the nursery, where Dia confesses for the first time that she has doubts about what she is getting into, I was like, 'Has someone been reading the gossip magazines to Woody?' "

The 25-year-old screen beauty believes 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."
