Priyanka Chopra has spoken out about Meghan Markle's recent interview in Vanity Fair. The Baywatch star has criticized the magazine for focusing too much on her friend's relationship with Prince Harry rather than her many achievements. Speaking to ET Online, she said: "I don't know if I will get into trouble for this, but I have an opinion. I mean, she's on the cover of Vanity Fair. It would have been nice to write about her not just her boyfriend. I'm just saying. I mean, she's an actor, she's an activist, she's a philanthropist. I mean, she does so much more."
The star added: "It's just a little sexist. Look, I'm a feminist and I love boys, okay… The only thing I'm saying is that there needs to be a certain sense of equality where a woman is not just a plus one, you know. It's nice to be your own identity to."
While the interview did focus on Meghan's relationship, fans of the Suits actress did discover some little known facts. For example, Meghan was the first in her family to get a university degree, graduating from Northwestern University with a double-major Bachelor of Arts in theatre and international relations, which she parlayed into a job at the U.S. Embassy in Argentina during her last year of school. "So I had been in a completely different world and then suddenly jumped into this one," the star said about pivoting quickly to a career in acting.
Meghan also revealed in the interview that she doesn’t pay attention to what is being written about her, her relationship, or her job. She said: " "I don't read any press. I haven't even read press for Suits," admitted the star. "The people who are close to me anchor me in knowing who I am. The rest is noise."
