Looking at Indian-born actress Priyanka Chopra, you’d think any man would be lucky to have her as a wife. But the Chopra says otherwise. After less than six months of being married to musician husband Nick Jonas, the star reveals that she actually makes for a ‘terrible wife’.
Apparently, the 36-year-old actress never did learn how to cook and even warned Jonas about this fact right after he proposed to her.
Chopra said that she thought her husband ought to know her lack of culinary skills before marrying her. Coming from a very traditional American family from the South, she knew her then-fiance was used to good cooking from his mom. Chopra even joked about only knowing how to cook eggs.
Fortunately, the 26-year-old musician didn’t mind his bride’s less-than-impressive cooking skills. But it’s only because he can’t whip up a meal himself, too. This admission surprisingly impressed the actress instead of turning her off. According to her, that kind of honesty from guys is rare.
However, it isn’t hard to see why Jonas fell in love with Chopra despite her not being ‘traditional wife’ material. The actress definitely has a lot of positive qualities that cancel out her dismal cooking skills.
For starters, she was one of the most successful actresses in the Indian entertainment industry way before she broke into Hollywood. Chopra reportedly starred in over 40 films during her acting stint back home. What more, she’s also a National Film Award-winning performer, which is a big deal since it’s like India’s version of the Oscars.
With her charm and acting chops, the beauty queen turned actress landed a starring role in ABC’s Quantico and other supporting roles in big films like Baywatch and Isn’t It Romantic.
But she is far from just being a pretty face. Chopra is also involved in a variety of charity work. She even created her own organization, The Priyanka Chopra Foundation For Health and Education. Currently, the foundation is sending 70 Indian children to school covering all of their educational and even health expenses.
According to the actress, education is personally important to her father, Dr. Ashok Chopra, encouraged her to pursue learning from a young age.
Though the couple may not be enjoying delicious home cooked meals on the daily, it seems like their marriage is stronger than ever.
Just recently, the musician gifted his wife with a brand new Mercedes Maybach as they celebrated the Jonas Brothers single, Sucker, reaching the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
The actress, appreciative of her new ride, even posted about it on Instagram calling Jonas as the ‘best husband ever’.
