Priyanka Chopra Recalls How Bold Nick Jonas Was When They First Started Dating: 'I Was Shocked'

Priyanka Chopra is revealing more about her relationship with husband Nick Jonas in a slew of interviews this week, as she promotes her new Netflix film, White Tiger.

Speaking with People, the 38-year-old actress said that she was quite shocked when they first started dating because of his boldness.

“I was shocked by his audaciousness, actually. He held my hand, he turned me around. I was like, ‘What is happening?’ He was bold, confident, self-assured,” she recalled. “And that was the most attractive thing about Nick and still is for me.”

She adds, “I was so taken in. Our courtship was such a short time. I just rode the wave because I trusted him. I’m someone who likes to have a sense of control, but he’s the only one I don’t feel like I need to do that with. I feel protected, calm.”

“Nick always says this to me: ‘I’ll always be in your corner.’ He said that to me very early. It was before we got married. I think at some point we were disagreeing about something, and he was like, ‘I’m always in your corner. We’re not on different sides of the room,’” Priyanka continued about the foundations of their relationship. “And it just changed the way I was talking to him. It became the greatest thing I feel about this partnership, and what makes me feel so confident in being able to do all the things I want to do.”

During her most recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Priyanka admitted that their marriage has actually flourished during quarantine rather than fall apart, like some others have.

“It’s great because we still like each other. That’s important,” she shared. “We both have had such individual careers that I don’t think we would’ve had six months with each other ever, so that’s really a blessing. I was really happy to be able to have that time with each other.”

Just recently, Priyanka got candid about her experience with bullying in school.
