Washington: Dev Patel has admitted that he is a ‘scaredy-cat’ and is afraid of spiders.

"I`m not superstitious but I am a scaredy-cat in general,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

"The last time I was frightened was when I saw a massive spider in the bathroom. I had to run out in my towel and scream for my dad."

The `Slumdog Millionaire` star, 20, is also in touch with his emotions and is never afraid to let people see him cry, even weeping while watching a movie in public.

"I cry a lot but the last time was watching ``Brothers``, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire. I was on a plane with so many people walking around, but I couldn``t help shedding a tear," he added.
