Priyanka Chopra: ‘I Want to Be Known for the Fact That I’m an Achiever’

Sept. 7, 2016

'I don’t want a label. I don’t want a box. I want a legacy'

Former Miss World and TIME 100 honoree Priyanka Chopra is opening up about her stances on feminism, beauty and what she wants to be remembered for.

In an interview with Refinery 29, Chopra said feminism is “equality in treatment,” but she doesn’t care for anyone’s judgment, either. “Don’t judge me for being me, just like you don’t judge the boys,” she said.

And as for the boys, Chopra opened up about how she sees them playing a role in women’s rights. “Feminism needs men to understand that we don’t want to berate you or kill you or hate you,” she said. “We just need you to stand by us.”

While the rest of the world sees Chopra as a beautiful face and celebrity, she doesn’t want to be categorized: “I don’t want to be known by the fact that I’m beautiful. I want to be known for the fact that I’m an achiever. Not even an actor. I don’t want a label. I don’t want a box. I want a legacy.”
