Priyanka Chopra Jonas is one of the most loved stars in the industry. Time and again, PeeCee has opened up about her journey, struggle with body image and more. Recently, on Victoria's Secret's VS Voices Podcast, Peecee talked about her changing relationship with her body. She said that because she has been a part of the entertainment industry since the age of 17 and was used to the scrutiny, she thought for a whole that unrealistic beauty standards were normal.
The actress said, "Obviously, being raised in the industry and having such a fight lens on what my shape was, what my figure was or what my measurements were, minutely looking at every part of me, I kind of grew up for a while in my 20s, thinking that was normal. Like most young people, where you think about these realistic standards of beauty, which is like, absolutely Photoshopped face, perfect hair. I never used my natural texture for years. I used to always just have blown out hair."
The actress added that she was at the receiving end of a lot of criticism after her father's death when she sought solace in food. She said, "I think over time when my body started changing and I went through that phase when I was eating my emotions, my body started changing, I reached my 30s, I went through struggle because I used to get online grief from people like, 'You are looking different, you are ageing,' this and that. It messed my mind at that time." ALSO READ:Priyanka Chopra Says Her Husband, Nick Jonas Asks Her To Perform Puja Every Time They Commence ‘Something Big’; Adds ‘Spiritually, He And I Align’
She continued, "My mind was already in such a dark place and I didn't have time for it. My relationship with social media changed, my relationship with the internet changed... I incubated myself in a way where I protected myself, I went into my Cancerian self-preservation self and got back into my shell," she added. Talking about her process of healing, PeeCee said that it took two years for her to heal completely.
PeeCee is currently having the best time of her life. Taking to Instagram, she recently shared a bunch of photos from her adventure outing and captioned it as, "A perfect day-off #AboutYesterday." Nick Jonas dropped a comment saying, "Damn Girl" followed by a fire emoji.
