International star Priyanka Chopra Jonas says she usually doesn't get bothered by people's opinions but she was "pissed off" when an Australian journalist questioned her qualification for announcing Oscar nominations last year.
An Australian entertainment journalist last year in March tweeted wondering why the 39-year-old actor and her musician-husband Nick Jonas were roped in to unveil nominees for the 93rd Academy Awards.
Chopra posted a staunch reply to the journalist as she shared a video listing over 60 acting credits from her almost two decade-long career -- at home in Bollywood, including 'Mary Kom', '7 Khoon Maaf', 'Bajirao Mastani', her international debut with the ABC series 'Quantico' to her Hollywood feature debut 'Baywatch'.
The star said,
"I usually don't get mad, but that just pissed me off," the 'Matrix Resurrections'.
She further said she usually confides in her family when she feels low and doesn't seem to get affected by people's opinions. She said,
"I'll be mad, I'll be angry, I'll be annoyed. I'll speak about it to my family. I might cry a little bit, but it doesn't change my relationship with my work and what my actual quest is."
The actor also spoke about the perils of social media where speculation was rife last month that all was not well in her marriage after she dropped Jonas from her surname on Twitter.
Chopra Jonas termed this as a "professional hazard" as believes that there is unnecessary credence given to social media in real life.
On the work front, the actor was last seen on the big screen in the Hollywood film "The Matrix Resurrections", which opened in cinemas worldwide in December.
Her upcoming slate of films include Jim Strouse-directed rom-com 'Text For You', a thriller series 'Citadel', and 'Sangeet', an unscripted series co-produced with her husband.
