Is he? Because it’s currently a bit unclear.

Both the Lion actor and his Slumdog Millionaire co-star, Freida Pinto, say they’re just “best friends,” which is sweet (or whatever); but then there’s this site, offering up completely unfounded gossip about a “new girlfriend.” I have chosen to ignore it all and assume that, yes, he’s fair game.

But I still have so many other questions. Google has been helpful with none of them.

For example, does Dev Patel like his cereal dry, soggy or somewhere in the middle?

Does he believe that butter belongs in the fridge, or was he raised in a butter-outside-the-fridge household?

Does Dev Patel use Crest Whitestrips?

Does Dev Patel hog the remote?

Did Dev Patel always know what to do with hair product or did someone have to tell him how to use it?

Did Dev Patel wake up one day and decide to grow a mustache because he wanted a new look or was it one of those things that just kind of evolved?

Do you think Dev Patel likes to sit in chairs at restaurants, or booths?

Does Dev Patel prefer the window seat or the aisle?

Is Dev Patel a napper?

On a scale of fresh-out-of-the-shower, soap-scented skin to elusive, spicy luxury cologne, how good does Dev Patel smell?

Does Dev Patel do that “funky socks for men” thing (not including red carpet/talkshows) or does he keep it classic?

Ditto underpants?

How do we think Dev Patel feels about man buns?

Does Dev Patel need to watch TV to fall asleep? Does he use one of those machines that play the sound of the ocean?

Does Dev Patel use a humidifier in the winter?

Does Dev Patel prefer fresh air or air conditioner?

OH! Big one: In offices, in general, does Dev Patel run hot or cold?

When Dev Patel’s hands are in his pockets, does he wiggle his fingers nervously or are they still and calm?

Does Dev Patel wake up and think, “Fuck yeah! Let’s do this day,” or does he hit a ten-minute snooze button on his phone?

Does Dev Patel ever back-stalk himself on Instagram to make sure he still likes his captions?

Does Dev Patel ever scroll through Twitter while laying in bed even though he was supposed to be somewhere twenty minutes ago?

Is Dev Patel late or on-time, as a rule?

Who do you think Dev Patel’s favorite Bravolebrity is?

Do you think Dev Patel tells everyone he watches Planet Earth but he’s really only ever seen one episode?

Do you think Dev Patel lies about stuff because it’s easier (like, “You know so-and-so, right?”) or is he honest about it?

What do you think Dev Patel dreams about?

Do you think Dev Patel was rooting for LC or Kristin on the critically acclaimed show Laguna Beach?

Do you think Dev Patel likes pizza crusts?

Do you think Dev Patel correlates certain personality traits with birth order and/or astrology?

Do you think Dev Patel looks backward when he trips and pretends to be confused when it happens?

Do you think Dev Patel knows that he glows?

So many questions, so little time.

But mostly, is Dev Patel single or what? Do you think it would be weird if I asked him?
