Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra jumped to fellow actress Meghan Markle’s defence when talkshow host Wendy Williams introduced her as just “Prince Harry’s girlfriend.”
34-year-old Priyanka appeared on the Wendy Williams Show ahead of her first American feature film Baywatch but it seemed that the host was more interested in her friend Meghan Markle, who stars in hit show Suits and just so happens to be dating Prince Harry.
When Wendy excitedly referred to the 35-year-old actress in this way, Chopra was visibly taken aback but quickly came to Markle’s defence, stating, ‘Also Meghan Markle… you know, an actress in Suits, her own achievements…’
Williams awkwardly agreed before Chopra continued “Just saying!” to lighten the mood.
As if the interview couldn’t get any more painful, Williams pressed harder about Markle’s relationship with Prince Harry, who is fourth in line to the throne.
She quizzed Chopra about whether their would be a wedding in the future and if so, would she be a bridesmaid, to which the Quantico actress retorted,
“I hope so. She seems happy. I think they look great together.”
“I don’t know if I’m that close to her,”
“I have known her two years now. We randomly met at a party and got on really well.”
“So once I get the invite, I don’t know… If I’m even invited.”
After that bluntly honest reply, Wendy then moved on to ask Priyanka about her own love life but it seemed that the actress was sick and tired of people asking about why she turns up to red carpet events without a date.
She delivered a poignant message in her sassy reply,
‘Why? It’s my moment, my outfit. I’m a strong independent woman.’
The interview eventually wrapped up with Wendy finally asking about Priyanka’s movie which the awesome lady seemed to be eager to talk about.
After asking about the plot, Wendy then went on to ask if Priyanka’s character “slept with The Rock” in Baywatch. A question which she completely shut down.
We’re in awe of Priyanka Chopra’s incredible attitude when faced with some not-so-riveting questions.
