Globally famed actress Priyanka Chopra-Jonas recently got candid about facing body-shaming in Bollywood. The starlet disclosed facts about her changing body as soon as she hit the age of 30.
The White Tiger actress, who has been a successful star in Bollywood and Hollywood as well, opened up discussing her changing relationship with her body in latest Victoria Secret’s VS Voices podcast.
The actress said that she was very naïve when she entered the showbiz industry at the age of 17 as she believed that unrealistic beauty standards were considered as normal.
“Obviously, being raised in the industry and having such a tight lens on what my shape was, what my figure was or what my measurements were, minutely looking at every part of me, I kind of grew up for a while in my 20s, thinking that was normal. Like most young people, where you think about these unrealistic standards of beauty, which is like, absolutely Photoshopped face, perfect hair. I never used my natural texture for years. I used to always just have blown out hair," recalled the Quantico star.
PeeCee, 39, signed off by saying, “I think over time when my body started changing and I went through that phase when I was eating my emotions, my body started changing, I reached my 30s, I went through struggle because I used to get online grief from people like, ‘You are looking different, you are ageing’, this and that. It messed with my mind at that time. My mind was already in such a dark place and I didn’t have time for it. My relationship with social media changed, my relationship with the internet changed… I incubated myself in a way where I protected myself, I went into my Cancerian self-preservation self and got back into my shell.”
Priyanka has been successful as she battled that dark phase of her life. On the work front, she is currently busy shooting for her upcoming series Citadel, in Spain. She also has Matrix 4 and Text For You in her kitty.
