‘My Body Has Changed As I’ve Gotten Older’, Says Priyanka Chopra
The thing about growing old is that it doesn’t just increase your age in number, but also takes a toll on you mentally and especially, physically. As and when you age, you realise that a lot of things change from the way you look at life to the way you look at yourself. And no matter how much the beauty industry tries to continually promote unrealistic standards of beauty, the truth is that everyone ages, including those whom we drool over behind the screen. Including our global icon and actress, Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
In a recent interview where topic of body positivity and the apparent lack of it in our society was touched upon, the Dostana actress admitted to having gone through an evolution of sorts when it came to her body as well. She said, “My body has changed as I’ve gotten older, just as everyone’s body does, and I’ve had to adapt mentally as well with like, OK, this is what it looks like now, this is what I look like now, it’s alright, and catering to my now body and not my 10-or 20-years-ago body.”
And the fact that an actress of this stature could muster up the strength to accept the changes that came to her body with age, despite being in a society that pesters the need to look perfect, was rather refreshing and motivating to say the least.

She went on to say, “I just try to remind myself that I am loved and I feel good from the inside. I feel confident when I walk into a room and I try to remind myself that that has nothing to do with my body. Even though this culture gives credence to that, too much, maybe.”
Passing us a few words of wisdom, yet again, Priyanka Chopra made a telling point on how as long as you feel good and confident from the inside, everything else starts to fall into place. On the work front, the Sky Is Pink actress is currently in between a lot of exciting projects, including making a debut in the Matrix series.
