She’s already a fashion week favorite,” the magazine wrote while giving reasons as to why it chose Priyanka Chopra as one them the royalty. The actress also shared a heartwarming video, telling you and I that anybody can become royalty for it is something you have to achieve.
“Royalty I really feel is not something that you’re born into that you are, it is a certain quality that when you walk into a room people look, or they just need to turn. And that’s when you’re really blueblooded,” said Priyanka Chopra in the video of the magazine.
“I love strong tough women, women who live on their own terms, women like Jennifer Lawrence, I adore her, Rihanna, just coz she’s so ‘don’t give a sh*t’, I love her, I love that about her,” she later added.

In the magazine, she also shares how she landed a role in Hollywood debut, Baywatch. “They were speaking to me about [playing] one of the lifeguards in the film Baywatch and I had a Skype call with [Baywatch director] Seth Gordon, which was supposed to be 15 minutes and it ended up being 2 hours. The character that I’m playing, which is the antagonist in Baywatch, was written for a man, and then he just changed it and thought that a woman would be really interesting and I ended up playing Victoria.”
She also talked about how she doesn’t consider herself beautiful. “I don’t even think I am right now. I just think I’ve found how to be the best version of myself, and that took a lot of years, she told W in the interview.
