Nick Jonas Reveals What He Thinks of His 'Sex Symbol' Status

Nick shared with the mag that he does “think it’s flattering, but attraction is such a nuanced thing. I don’t take it too seriously.”

In fact, Nick added that he does laugh it off a lot.

“I just learn to laugh about it and think about the fact that my parents are probably reading some of the comments. It’s not something I wear as a badge of honor. I tend to try to not think about it because it would make me feel a little embarrassed,” he shared.

Check out what else he shared below:

On his proposal to Priyanka Chopra: “It was a sort of proposal. I did get down on one knee and say, ‘Where have you been all my life?’ But I didn’t say, ‘Will you marry me?’ That came much later.”

On body image for men: “I think, when it’s comments attached to things like appearance and body image, that’s when it can become quite dangerous, because no one ever knows what someone is going through or how it affects them personally. They’re very sensitive topics. But in the same way, you live a public life and therefore parts of your life are going to be talked about and it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s fair. It’s just a part of your reality.”

On the stigma of growing up a Disney star: “I don’t think working with [Disney] has the stigma that it did in our day, thankfully. I think it’s wonderful what’s happening with Olivia Rodrigo and others who have been launched on programs that are targeted towards teenagers but are still being taken seriously. I think one of the biggest misconceptions about [the Jonas Brothers] in the early days was that, first of all, it was manufactured, which is just impossible because, well, we’re brothers. The second was that the music we released as the Jonas Brothers was manufactured in some ways. It truly wasn’t.”

Just over the weekend, Nick was spotted out with his brothers at a family dinner!
