Ask Priyanka Chopra whether she’d end up with Nick Jonas two years ago, and the answer would have been a resounding no. The actress spoke at Tina Brown’s 10th Annual Women in the World Summit yesterday, where she candidly admitted that she never imagined her and Jonas being that serious at first.
“I’ve known him for two years. I didn’t think that this is what it [would’ve] turned out to be, and that’s maybe that’s my fault, I judged a book by its cover,” she told Brown, via people. “When I actually started dating Nick, he surprised me so much.”
Part of it was his maturity and the way his personality complemented hers so nicely. “I call him ‘Old Man Jonas.’ That’s my name for him, ‘OMJ,’” Chopra said. “He’s such an old soul, extremely smart, so good for me because he grounds me so much. I’m a wild child, I do whatever I want whenever I want and he always supports me.”
Chopra and Jonas got married last december after getting engaged at the end of july. Their wedding was a multi-day, lavish occasion in an Indian palace. Their wedding plans came together pretty fast, Chopra told Brown, and yes, the bill did shock them a little.
“I knew it was going to be three days because Indian weddings do have pre-rituals,” she started. “Both of us wanted one wedding in each of our religions, so that was two days anyway. It all happened so fast. We decided to prep this wedding in October, and we got married [on] the first of December. We saw videos, and then the bill. And we were like, ‘Cool cool, maybe we should have prepared this a little bit more.’”Jonas himself quipped to james corden during the Jonas Brothers’ carpool karaoke segment that the moment he thought there were too many wedding events for him and Chopra was “when I looked at the bill.
