Its hard to believe, but Priyanka Chopra, a one-time beauty queen and future bad-ass in a bikini (she plays the villian in 2017's Baywatch movie), doesn't date. 

Inside the August issue of InStyle, on newsstands July 8, the multitalented 33-year-old reveals many secrets to writer Veronica Chambers, but the most jaw-dropping has to be her answer to the seemingly simple question: Are you dating? 

"I've never dated," she says (pictured on our cover in a Gucci gown). "I've always been in relationships." She attributes this to the fact that dating as a concept doesn't really exist in India, where she grew up. "It's very different. You like someone, you court each other, you get into a relationship," she says. "You're answerable to each other. Whereas the nonanswerability of dating, my god, I don't know if I would ever be able to."
