Priyanka Chopra’s Ideal Body: “Curvaceous but not super-skinny but at the same time I want to be lean”

priyanka2 - Priyanka Chopra's Ideal Body: "Curvaceous but not super-skinny but at the same time I want to be lean"

On her eating habits:

“All of us are super busy. Life is just really fast-paced and you don’t have to kill yourself in the gym. You don’t have to starve yourself. I love having my pizzas and burgers and buffalo wings, on the side, for sure. But I like staying fit as well.”

On how she stays healthy:

“I have to stay super active and agile because I do my own stunts. I do all my fights myself. I trust my body and my instincts. People always say you should listen to your body. But I don’t listen to my body. My body listens to me. I can’t afford to be sick or low on energy. It’s mind over matter: I’m going to have a good day, and not in that fake ‘Happy girls are the best girls!’ way. Identify the weaknesses, shut them in a box, find your strengths, and run with them.”

On her ideal body:

“Curvaceous but not super-skinny but at the same time I want to be lean. So I try and eat healthy whenever I can.”

On her big break in Hollywood:

“It’s been a huge struggle for me to be able to come into mainstream entertainment in America and actually break the mold of what a Bollywood actress should be. Success is always about what’s next. I don’t settle and I don’t stop.”

… says Priyanka in Women’s Health Magazine.

On feminism:

“For eons, women have been told how to be or think or dress. I come from a part of the world where this debate is so heated, especially because we’re a country that has goddesses. We pray to women. But at the same time, we prey on them…Feminism needs men to understand that we don’t want to berate you or kill you or hate you. We just need you to stand by us.”

On beauty:

“Beauty has nothing to do with me. I was born with it. But I don’t want to be known by the fact that I’m beautiful. I want to be known for the fact that I’m an achiever. Not even an actor. I don’t want a label. I don’t want a box. I want a legacy.”

On the phrase ‘woman of color’:

“I know everything is about diversity right now. But I think it should be about humanity. It’s 2016. It’s so easy to separate ourselves and become smaller and smaller pieces of humanity. I don’t like the phrase ‘woman of color.’ I feel like that puts women in a box. I’m a woman, whether I’m white, Black, brown, green, blue, or pink — whatever. I think we need to start looking beyond that. It would be a big win for women, period.”

Priyanka Chopra: ‘The girl next door is no longer blonde-haired & blue-eyed’

chopra2 - Priyanka Chopra: ‘The girl next door is no longer blonde-haired & blue-eyed’

On her career Hollywood as a woman of color:

“Storytelling cannot be based on what someone looks like. Everyone has stories: you have a story; I have a story. They just need to be written. And casting needs to happen based on the best person for the job, not the Indian girl or the black girl. The girl next door is no longer blonde-haired and blue-eyed, nor is she brown-haired and brown-eyed. She’s not one person. And our entertainment needs to be a representation of that.”

Priyanka Chopra: “I attracted a lot of attention. Nobody looked like me”

chopra-052816-_5 - Priyanka Chopra: "I attracted a lot of attention. Nobody looked like me"

On her beauty image struggles growing up:

“[I was] head of the class, teacher’s pet, always knew the answers, always in honors classes. My parents never treated me like a child. They made me make my own decisions, told me to think about the pros and cons. I grew up having my own opinions and knowing what that meant. But I was always really conscious of the way I looked, and high school is hard for anyone. I attracted a lot of attention. Nobody looked like me in my school. I was skinny with crazy, frizzy hair. It was like Mean Girls.”

… says Priyanka.
