Freida Pinto has revealed she used to "dream" about Leonardo DiCaprio.

The actress admitted she had a teenage crush on the Titanic star and she would think about him while she slept.

Now a budding Hollywood star herself, the Indian beauty is in a long-term relationship with former co-star Dev Patel.

"As a teenager you have all kinds of dreams. And Leonardo's part of them!" Freida told British magazine Esquire.

The 27-year-old also remembered the early days of her romance with boyfriend Dev.

The couple met on the set of hit movie Slumdog Millionaire, where they portrayed young lovers bound together by fate.

Looking back, Freida believes their mutual attraction was plain to see from the start.

"We look at those early interviews now on YouTube, and the two of us are all over the place. We're laughing at each other's jokes and they're not funny at all, but we're just encouraging each other," she said. "They asked him, 'Out of the girls, who would you take on a date?' And apparently he said me!"
