In an interview, Priyanka Chopra called out the gender double standards about men dating younger partners versus women who do. The Quantico actress said that the couple were at the receiving end of a lot of flak.
Priyanka Chopra, who is currently quarantined with husband Nick Jonas at her home in Los Angeles, had once talked about the age gap between her and her husband.
Priyanka and Nick Jonas' age gap of 10 years has been raising a lot of eyebrows ever since they got together in 2018.
Netizens never stopped talking about them and some even criticised them over it. Not only that, several memes went viral too that were based on the age difference between Priyanka and Nick.
Now, after almost two years into their marriage, the 36-year-old actress finally addressed the slew of criticisms surrounding the age difference, in an interview with Instyle magazine.
The actress rightly pointed out the gender double standards when it comes to women dating younger men versus men who do the same. "People gave us a lot of sh*t about that and still do. I find it really amazing when you flip it and the guy is older, no one cares and actually people like it."
She further went on to say that to this day, people still give them a lot of nonsense for their 10-years age gap.
On the matter of kids, Priyanka said that she and Nick do want to start a family when the time is right. "I want my existence to have meant something. I want my kids to turn around and be like, ‘Yeah, that was my mom,'" stated the actress.
PeeCee spoke of the time when her mother Madhu Chopra mrt Nick. She said, "When Nick was coming down the first time, I was a little like, 'Oh, man...' Both my mom and Nick speak at this decibel (inaudible murmur), so anyone around them is like, 'Huh? Sorry what?' When they were speaking to each other when they met, I was like, 'Are they even going to understand each other? Cause I don't understand the conversation."
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tied the knot in Udaipur in December 2018 after a whirlwind romance. From the venue, food, décor to their trousseau, and guests, everything made headlines for the right reasons.
The wedding was one of the biggest and most extravagant weddings of 2018. Even People magazine US did an exclusive report.
