In Chopra’s new autobiography, Unfinished, the actor recalled that after she was crowned Miss World in 2000, the first director she met with suggested that that she should fix her “proportions”.
“After a few minutes of small talk, the director/producer told me to stand up and twirl for him,” she wrote in her book.
“I did. He stared at me long and hard, assessing me, and then suggested that I get a b**b job, fix my jaw, and add a little more cushioning to my butt.
“If I wanted to be an actress, he said, I’d need to have my proportions ‘fixed’, and he knew a great doctor in LA he could send me to. My then-manager voiced his agreement with the assessment.”
Chopra said she left the meeting feeling “stunned and small”. She parted ways with her manager soon afterwards, according to the Independent.
