“I Lost A Role Because of My Skin”- Priyanka Chopra

 

Priyanka Chopra is opening up about her experience in the entertainment industry. In an interview with InStyle, the Quantico actress shares that she has, as recently as last year, lost out on roles because of her skin color.

“It happened last year,” she tells the magazine. “I was out for a movie, and somebody [from the studio] called one of my agents and said, ‘She’s the wrong’—what word did they used?—’physicality.’”

She continues, “So in my defense as an actor, I’m like, ‘Do I need to be skinnier? Do I need to get in shape? Do I need to have abs?’ Like, what does ‘wrong physicality’ mean?”

Chopra’s agent then said to her, “‘I think, Priy, they meant that they wanted someone who’s not brown.’ It affected me.”
