'Slumdog Millionaire' star Dev Patel has joined the likes of Robert Pattinson and Academy winning actor Jammie Foxx in a list of the most eligible men, compiled by ‘OK’ magazine.
The 19-year-old Patel, a British actor of Indian origin who shot to fame as the street urchin 'Jamal' in the multiple Oscar winning film has been described as "The Shy Guy" by the magazine. The young actor who was romantically linked to his co-star from the film, Freida Pinto, had once described himself as the guy who "never had a girlfriend. I'm the guy who stands in the club nowhere near the dance floor".
While Pinto has been included in the list of the 'World's Most Beautiful Women' and signed on by Woody Allen, Patel will be seen in Manoj Night Shyamalan's next flick.
The list was topped by 22-year-old 'Twilight' heartthrob Robert Patinson. Other prominent names on the list include Jamie Foxx, 'Gossip Girl' actor Chace Crawford, funnyman Jason Segel, 'Heroes' star Milo Ventimiglia and Josh Hartnett who is described as a "serial dater" by the magazine.
