This month’s Spotlight Spinster (or single ladies we love) is Priyanka Chopra, who is also an inductee this month into the 35 and older club. She’s been a Bollywood movie star since 2002, just a couple of years after ruling the pageant circuit and winning Miss World Continental Queen of Beauty. Hard to top a title like that, but Priyanka seems to be managing to do it.
American audiences have only gotten to know her since her role in Quantico as the smart, skillful FBI recruit Alex Parrish. Starring in Quantico made Priyanka the first South Asian woman to headline a network series.
And Priyanka doesn’t stop at acting, she is also a singer, a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador visiting girls who have been victims of sexual abuse in Zimbabwe, and forever a Daddy’s girl, so much so that after losing her father to cancer in 2013, she got a tattoo of “Daddy’s lil’ girl” on her wrist in her father’s handwriting.
From the villain in last year’s Baywatch to an upcoming roles in the comedy Isn’t It Romantic and the indie drama A Kid Like Jake, Priyanka’s 35 and older years are looking as lovely as she always does.
Happy birthday month, Priyanka!
