Priyanka Chopra is not only a well renowned talented actor, but she is also a producer, an author, an entrepreneur, and a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Recently, the graceful actor hit the headlines by joining the team of Victoria’s Secret as one of their representatives. Also, soccer star Megan Rapinoe and Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio joined the team of the US lingerie giant under its VS Collective. Currently hosted by Amanda de Cadenet – a broadcaster, journalist, photographer, and a member of the inaugural VS Collective, Priyanka Chopra was seen conversing with Amanda and opened up about many things.
She speaks about the things and parts of her life she shows on social media and what she keeps private away from the media. When Chopra was asked if she has any parts of her life that she keeps off the social media, she replied: “I don’t like digging too deep. I will maybe show images of me and my husband, me and my mom or me and my brother and would be like, ‘Merry Christmas’ but you will never see what happens within the sacred safe space of my home. It is a little bit ornamental I feel, like, what I share unless I am having a moment where I feel vulnerable or talk about my feelings and I captured something that I have done. I have had to build a very hard exterior. I started in this business when I was 17 in, predominantly, patriarchal industry, you kind of had to toughen up and pull up your boots and just survive and you are not allowed to feel anything.”
“So, I think for a long time I built myself to be a survivor, to be a street dog who is just like, ‘I am gonna do whatever I need.’ And to do it with grace. But now that I am in a comfortable place with myself and my life as a woman, I don’t know how to undo that. I don’t know how to undo the desire to constantly look like am in control.” The gorgeous Indian actress also expressed that she is trying to be more open on social media for her followers. Priyanka said, “Social media is a curated version of what you want people to believe and that’s just projection. I never spoke about a relationship in my life before my husband for some reason, I didn’t want to be defined by it and suddenly he comes along and is like, ‘you know what, this feels comfortable’… I do want to not think about my actions, just want to be giddy and have fun and live my life.”
