On being bullied when she first came to America at the age of 13:
“I was bullied by a freshman named Jeanine. She was black, and supremely racist. Jeanine used to say, ‘Brownie, go back to your country, you smell of curry,’ or ‘Do you smell curry coming?’ You know when you’re a kid, and you’re made to feel bad about where your roots are, or what you look like? You don’t understand it, you just feel bad about who you are… I told my mom, ‘I don’t want to do this anymore.’”
… says Priyanka, who is genetically blessed.

On working out 6 days a week for her new role in “X-Men: Apocalypse”:
“It was all outside, around London, which was more fun than being cooped up in a gym. I need to do fun stuff that takes my mind off the fact that I’m working out. Exercise has made me feel more positive about my body, less self-conscious. I don’t know if I look any different, but I feel stronger, and I can do more, which is such a good feeling. It’s so liberating. Also, I’ve really embraced healthy eating. It makes you feel a lot better and more energetic. I’m inspired to get up and out.”
… says 20 the year-old Game of Thrones actress.

On looking good at age 78:
I got a fake hip, a fake knee. You should see what happens to me at airports. It’s just a fact. No matter what your body is going to go south. Your spirit and your mind [makes soaring gesture]. The old fashion way of looking at aging is that you’re born, you peak at midlife and then you decline into decrepitude. The way to really look at it is, even if your body is declining, even if you’re sick, your spirit your heart is on an upward trajectory, always growing and evolving. I started feeling young, I kid you not, at 60. Actually 62 I became a single woman. Also I’ve been working on myself. You don’t because wise and healthy because you’ve had a lot of interesting experiences. You have to think about the experiences and what they mean… I did a lot of working on myself. I don’t think I’ve ever been quite as happy as I am now.
… says Jane.

I have genetically blessed Indian genes where I don’t need to train, but [Baywatch co-star] Kelly Rorhbach has been trying to convince me to train with her, and every morning when she tries to get me to go with her, I’m just like, “Oh, can I just get a half an hour more sleep? Or I say my tummy’s hurting and make excuses. They train like beasts! I just try and hide out with my burger.’
… says 33 year-old Priyanka.

On when she feels at her sexiest:

[I love] all of it: my flaws, my shortcomings, my body parts that you’re like, ‘Well, couldn’t that be better?’ I think, especially after having kids, I go, ‘Well, the alternative is pretty bad. I’ll take me as I am.’ “
