Priyanka opens up about being body shamed

Priyanka Chopra  has revealed that she was left in tears after being told that she was too big to fit in a “sample size” during a fitting this week.

“I’ve been told many things that are difficult to hear,” the “Citadel” actress told Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke at the SXSW conference and festival in Austin, Texas, Friday, according to People magazine.

“In my job, the pressure is so intense you can’t really show the chinks in your armor. 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 my team, and I felt really bad about the fact that I’m not sample size.”

She said that size 2 is considered “sample size,” and “that’s a problem, apparently.”

She added that “most people” are not sample size.

The actress, who is married to Nick Jonas and shares a 1-year-old daughter who spent nearly 100 days in a NICU after she was born, said people often say the “meanest and nastiest” things about her child and family, “and I think sometimes people forget you are even human.

“I can’t explain how it feels when you are sitting down on your couch and you just feel the world coming at you because people have forgotten that you are human.”

The 40-year-old said she surrounds herself with people who “love” and “care” for her and doesn’t care about what she can do for them.

“People who want to see you smile and be enriched,” she explained.

“It doesn’t have to be a room full of people. I can count them on my hands.”
