- Priyanka Chopra Jonas recently spoke with The Telegraph about beauty, acting, and more.
- She said she “had to come to terms” with her natural beauty because of unrealistic standards.
- The model and actress also said she’s had a “revelation” and is now comfortable in her skin.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas is opening up about the impact society’s “unrealistic beauty standards” have had on her.
In a recent piece for The Telegraph, the 39-year-old model and actress spoke about everything from her daily work routine to her dogs that she shares with husband Nick Jonas. She also spoke about beauty, and said she “always felt pressure to look a certain way” in the past.
“I have been raised with unrealistic beauty standards my whole life – we all have,” Chopra Jonas said. “Growing up, I believed everything had to be perfect, skinny or sample size, and airbrushed. It has taken me time to come to terms with my natural skin and natural hair texture. “
Chopra Jonas went on to say that in the past, she’d had her hair professionally blow-dried and her makeup done by an artist before interviews and events. Now, however, the multihyphenate star says she handles both herself.
“It’s been a revelation,” she said. “I’m now comfortable in my own skin and I can work with brands that are about individuality and expressing yourself.”
She’s also seemingly become more comfortable showcasing her natural beauty online.
In a recent Instagram post shared on September 17, Chopra Jonas wrote: “When your hair is 90% of your selfie… ????
#citadel #curlynaturalhair ❤️.”
Chopra Jonas will likely continue sharing her message of body positivity as part of her new role with Victoria’s Secret.
As part of the new VS Collective – which has replaced the brand’s iconic and controversial Angels – Chopra Jonas will help drive “positive change” in the company and the world, according to the brand.
