Chopra and Jonas weren’t an official couple when they posed together on the red carpet that year, but the photos sparked speculation that perhaps a romance was brewing between the two.
Indeed it was, as they had been sending each other flirtatious messages for several months, but Chopra denied a spark at the time, telling Jimmy Kimmel, “We were both wearing Ralph Lauren! And we decided to go together because it was fun.”
“We were at the same table. We know each other so we were like, ‘Hey you know what, let’s go together.’ And I was like, ‘Okay. Let’s go together!’ It just ended up working out,” she continued.
