January 10th, 2021: Priyanka Chopra Jonas has opened up about married life in a rare interview. Promoting her latest film for Netflix, White Tiger, the actor spoke about what impact the pandemic has had on her relationship with husband Nick Jonas, and also reflected on their age gap.
The couple temporarily relocated to London while Priyanka filmed romantic comedy Text for You alongside Outlander's Sam Heughan and her old Quantico co-star Russell Tovey.
Looking back on the year, the actor told The Sunday Times, "Quarantine gave us the ability to spend a lot of time together, which I'm really blessed by. Because with both of our careers it's hard to find that kind of time."
The actor was also asked if the couple's age gap (Priyanka is 38 and Nick is 28) was a bigger gap to bridge than any cultural differences.
"Neither was a hurdle," Priyanka shared. "Nick took to India like a fish to water. But just like a normal couple, you have to understand each other’s habits and what each other likes. So it’s more of an adventure than trying to figure out hurdles. None of it was really that hard."
She also praised the Jonas Brother for always being in her "corner", adding, "whatever I may be in my professional life or how the world perceives me, I’m just a girl trying to live her life in the best way possible, and I’m so grateful to have a partner in doing that."
