Law Roach Addresses Priyanka Chopra's Recent Comments About Body Shaming & Not Being Sample Size Comments

Law Roach has opened up about Priyanka Chopra‘s most recent comments about not being sample size when it comes to styling in Hollywood.

If you didn’t see, Priyanka recently said that she felt she was body shamed for not being a sample size.

“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 2,” she recalled during a panel at the SXSW Festival.

She added, “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.”

Law, her now-retired stylist got candid in a recent interview, and revealed that it wasn’t him who said that to her.

“It was a little bit hurtful in a way that it ended up in the press, you know? Because that wasn’t the real conversation,” Law admitted. “I’ve never had that conversation with her, ever.”

He then implied that it was her “gatekeepers, how they presented what I said to her to make her feel that way. And if that made her feel bad, that wasn’t — it was taken out of context.”

Law added, “But I’m sure it was taken outta context to get her to be like, ‘Oh, okay, I’m not working with him no more. He’s insensitive to my body.’ Which I’m like, ‘How is that possible? I’ve been dressing you for literally pre-pandemic, and it’s been nothing but great things.”

“I think sometimes what it is with them is that they have an agenda and I need to be the bad guy because I’m the one who’s dealing with the clothes and the body. Like, I need to be the one who says, you know — and I’m not talking about her. I’m just talking about in general, like, I need to be the one to say, “Oh, you know, be careful because, you know, the pictures aren’t as beautiful because you coming across, you know, a little thicker than you used to be.” It is, like, so they’ll say that to me or have a discussion with me but then take it back as if I was the lead in the discussion. And I’m not saying that’s exactly what happened, but that’s what feels like happened to me.”

Law also shared that he was “really surprised that — I love Priyanka. When you are around her, there’s only so many women in this industry that have that thing.”

“I’m constantly inspired by women, and she has this thing that’s very Old Hollywood, Sophia Loren — it drives me crazy. She has a twinkle, she has a wiggle, and I love her, like, even as a person.”
