My self-esteem is way too low to call myself a star yet: Dev Patel

Dev Patel has grown up. He is self-deprecating, fiercely grounded and appears to be running his own race.

Nothing about Dev Patel is usual. He might be adored by millions, but he lived with his parents in a London suburb until just recently. His then lanky frame might have suggested otherwise, but he holds a black belt in taekwondo (he has competed in the World Championships). With his over-sized ears (“I was called ‘World Cup’ because my ears looked like the handles of the world cup”), he’s not exactly one of Hollywood’s best-looking actors.
