"Slumdog" Lovers Make First Public Appearance (PHOTOS)

They've been a rumored couple for the better part of a year, but Sunday was the first public appearance for "Slumdog Millionaire" couple, Dev Patel, 19, and Freida Pinto, 24.

Pinto split with her longtime boyfriend shortly before the Oscars, and he cited her costar as a reason. Just weeks ago the couple ran away from each other and photographers when they were spotted together in New York.

But Sunday night in London the couple smiled arm-in-arm for photographers at a special screening of the film that made them famous.
