Freida Pinto‘s new role in Woody Allen‘s upcoming film hit a little too close to home. Leaving your fiancé to be with another man is something Freida is familiar with.
Freida plays an exotic musicologist Dia, in the upcoming You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, who leaves her fiancé for another man.
That’s exactly what Freida did when she called off her engagement to Rohan Antao to start dating Dev in January 2009.
“I feel what I did was right,” Freida says. “There were no two ways about it. But when I walked into Woody [Allen]’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?’ ”

You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger hits theaters Sept. 22!
