If you’ve ever felt a tad insecure while sporting a swimsuit, you’re definitely not alone when it comes to that anxiety. Even Priyanka Chopra, the world’s most famous face boasting more than 63 million followers on all three major networks, admits she feels bashful when she hits the beach.
Despite starring in this month’s Baywatch alongside The Rock and Zac Efron, the former Miss World 2000 winner reveals to PEOPLE Now that she gets super shy when it comes to hitting the beach in her bikini.

“I’m not like that as a person, you know? I like my food,” she said, adding that during shoots with her co-stars, she would sit and eat whatever she wanted while everyone else was going to the gym. Get. It. Girl...
