“I’ve been told many things that are difficult to hear. In my job, the pressure is so intense you can’t really show the chinks in your armor,”
The Indian Actress and producer claimed she cried to her husband Nick Jonas after someone called her she was not a sample size, according to People
“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 [Nick Jonas], and my team, and I felt really bad about the fact that I’m not sample size, and that’s a problem, apparently, and most of us are not and sample size is size two.”
The Mother Of One not only refers to her own problem about being told to be in a certain way or have to act in a particular way with particular people, but it has also become a worldwide problem and everyone had faced this at any point in their life. However, it is quite high in the entertainment industry, where numerous celebrities have expressed their feelings of struggle about their body being put under the microscope.
People have forgotten we are human beings while being lost in the fleeting beauty and fame of the show-off world. Chopra added while saying how mean people have been to her and to her family members.
“I have had times when I may have said something, and it’s been misconstrued, 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 Padma Shri award-winning actress added
“And those pressures — it’s inexplicable. 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.”

She has learned to be positive and has realized the importance of being surrounded by positive people as well.
“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. 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.”

“When I did Citadel, it was the first time in my career that I had pay parity with my male costar — the first time in 22 years.”
