I love Priyanka Chopra Jonas so much and can’t wait to read her upcoming book, Unfinished. I think that she is inspirational, talented, and fearless.
The talented actress talked in her upcoming memoir about how when she was a teenager, a director told her to get cosmetic surgery.
“After a few minutes of small talk, the director/producer told me to stand up and twirl for him,” she shared in the passage and continued by saying, “I did.”
She went on and shared, “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 L.A. he could send me to. My then manager voiced his agreement with the assessment,” she continued.
That’s so frustrating that her manager agreed with the director and wasn’t there to protect Priyanka.
“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.”
We’re glad that she realized that she was meant for this business, as Priyanka is so talented and is meant to change the world. She’s influenced countless people and show them that they can do anything.
Unfinished is set to be released, tomorrow, February 9th.
