Priyanka Chopra Criticizes Meghan Markle's "Sexist" Cover Story

"It would have been nice to write about her not just her boyfriend."

Priyanka Chopra has always been vocal about not wanting to play second fiddle to a man: She would rather be Ms. Bond than a Bond girl and, with those moves, can totally kick ass as your next Bat(wo)man.

So when her close friend and fellow actress and activist Meghan Markle had a huge Vanity Fair cover story, Chopra had something to say about it:

The cover story focused on Markle's relationship with Prince Harry, though in the article Markle herself comments, "I've never defined myself by my relationship."


Chopra continued:

This isn't the first time Chopra has come to Markle's defense. Earlier this year, she skillfully corrected Wendy Williams when the host referred to Markle as "Prince Harry's girlfriend."
