Priyanka Chopra Jonas Reflects How She Was Told To Fix Her Shape Earlier In Her Career

Priyanka Chopra Jonas has disclosed that she was told, at the beginning of her career, to get a breast enlargement and have surgery on her jaw and rear.

She made this known in her autobiography “Unfinished”, which is a reflection of her experience in the world of entertainment.

The 38-year-old actress explained that she felt stunned and small after a movie director admonished her to have a surgery to refine her shape.

She wrote: “After a few minutes of small talk, the director/producer told me to stand up and twirl for him. I did. He stared at me long and hard, assessing me, and then suggested that I get a boob job, fix my jaw, and add a little more cushioning to my butt.

“If I wanted to be an actress, he said, I’d need to have my proportions “fixed,” and he knew a great doctor in LA he could send me to. My then-manager voiced his agreement with the assessment.

“I left the director/producer’s office feeling stunned and small. Was he right that I couldn’t be successful unless I had so many body parts ‘fixed?’

“I thought of how individuals in the media and others in the industry had referred to me as ‘dusky’ and ‘different-looking,’ and I wondered if I was cut out for this business after all.”

The movie star who said such statement has become a normal thing in the entertainment world, but it’s rarely being discussed.

She explained: “It’s so normalised that it doesn’t come up in conversation.

“I talked about a movie that I walked out of because of how I was spoken to by the director… It was early in my career, but I never told him why I walked out.

“I never had the courage to stand up for myself.”

Priyanka has risen to the status of becoming one of India’s highest-paid stars, and she’s married to American singer, Nick Jonas, of the Jonas Brothers.

She revealed that it was a shock when Nick proposed to her after just eight weeks of dating, which emanated into marriage in 2018.

She said: “I didn’t expect the proposal at that point… It was two months!”

“I thought it would happen, but it was still a complete shock. [But] I relinquished control and I just went with it,” she added.
