Sharon Stone makes Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel's night – and he wants to meet Will Smith at the Oscars
Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire was the big winner at the Baftas winning eight awards. The film’s star Dev Patel could have been a tad down losing his Best Actor award to Mickey Rourke, but he was ecstatic – thanks to Sharon Stone! A source reveals: “Dev got on like a house on fire with Sharon and was texting all his friends in amazement. He even took Sharon over to meet his mother.” Dev’s currently looking ahead to the Oscars – and he’s desperate to meet his hero Will Smith. Dev told me: “I’m very excited, and hopeful for our film. And I’m especially excited about seeing Will Smith there. I think he’s amazing. I want to go up and chat to him at the Oscars but I’ll have to see how brave I’m feeling on the night!” Go for it, Dev! I’ll be out at the Oscars to keep an eye on Dev! Make sure to you check www.deanpiper.com from this Friday where I’ll be coming at you from LA!
