Indian actress Priyanka Chopra was left in tears before her husband, Nick Jonas, after being body shamed for not being ‘sample size.’ Taking part in a panel at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival, the actress revealed that hurtful body shaming was the cause of her breakdown.
Priyanka sat down with Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke at the festival’s kick-off and recalled what had happened to her. “Someone told me yesterday that I wasn’t sample-sized. I was hurt, and I discussed it with my family, and I cried to my husband and team,” she confessed.
“I felt terrible about the fact that I’m not sample size,” the 40-year-old actress continued sharing her thoughts on being body-shamed. “And that’s a problem, apparently, and most of us are not, and the sample size is size 2.

” Unfortunately, the incident was not a first for Priyanka. “I’ve been told many things that are difficult to hear,” she stated. “In my job, the pressure is so intense you can’t show the chinks in your armor.”
Aside from being body shamed, ‘The White Tiger’ actress pointed out other demeaning comments thrown at her.
“I have had times when I may have said something, and it’s been misconstrued,” she explained, “and you see people saying the meanest and nastiest things not just about me, about my child, about my family members, and I think sometimes people forget you are even human.”
The ‘Unfinished’ author gives further advice on how to deal with hateful comments.
“I think what you have to do is surround yourself with people who love you and surround yourself with people who care about you, and not about what you can bring to the table and not about what you can do for me,” she said. “People who want to see you smile and be enriched. It doesn’t have to be a room full of people, I can count them on my hands.”
