Jeremy Meeks got famous for his ‘hot felon’ looks, but now, he’s capturing the attention of Hollywood with a slew of new movie roles. He spoke with HL EXCLUSIVELY about his new journey!
JeremyMeeks, 37, may have caught the attention of the country in 2014 for being the “Hot Felon” after a mugshot showing off his handsome looks made the rounds, but now, he’s seeking the attention of Hollywood for his roles. With True to the Game 3, Jeremy returns for the third installment of the crime romance trilogy with a cast that also includes Vivica A. Fox, Darius McCrary, and others.
“I am excited to show the world my versatility,” Jeremy shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife in a recent interview. “I am so much bigger than these roles and these roles are big, and I can showcase so many different layers,” he went on. “A romantic comedy, or just a comedy or a thriller or a suspense. I can do it. I can do it all and I am excited to show everyone and do it all and not just killer roles.”
The actor went on to share how he felt he has changed for the better as well, since moving on from a life of gang activity in California. “I wake up every single day and try to be a better person than I was yesterday. Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually,” he revealed. “The work doesn’t stop. I am trying to be a better actor, a better father. I can always know that I can always do better, and the work doesn’t stop. Just need to stay blessed.”
Elsewhere in the conversation, Jeremy shared how he would love to work with the “legendary” Denzel Washington someday, considering his inspirations. “He is my favorite. Just his energy and his aura and watching all his interviews,” he shared. “The way he speaks and how raw and honest he is … I would love to just be a sponge and listen to his wise words.”
Considering where he goes from here, the model noted that he would be willing to “do it all,” from the aforementioned varying genres to Marvel movies to … well, pretty much anything! “I would not want to place myself in any box,” he revealed. “I also am going to start writing and producing and possibly directing. Why not? I have so many stories and so many stories that I have been through that are movies just in them self. So, I am very excited for the future.”
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Jonas are new parents after welcoming a baby girl via surrogate last weekend.
“We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate. We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family,” Priyanka announced on Instagram Friday.
The power couple tied the knot in two ceremonies in Jodhpur, India, in front of 225 invited guests.
Nick, 29, and Priyanka, 39, began dating in May 2018. Their 10-year age difference upset Nick’s female fans who thought she was too old for him.

Nick first found fame with the Jonas Brothers on The Disney Channel in 2005. Nick and his brothers, Joe Jonas, 32, and Kevin Jonas, 34, won Breakthrough Artist at the American Music Awards in 2008.
Nick branched out into acting playing Boone on the FOX horror/comedy series Scream Queens. He also starred in the films Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Jumanji: The Next Level (2019).
Priyanka, from Jamshedpur, India, made a name for herself when she won the Miss World pageant in 2000.
She won the Filmfare Award and National Film Award for Best Actress in the movie Fashion, and in 2015, she was cast as Alex Parrish in the ABC crime drama Quantico.
Priyanka released her first single “In My City” in 2012.
We stan ‘BruShandria Carmichael’ played by LightSkinKeisha who shattered the Powerverse with her stunning Black outfit that she wore to Professor Reynolds’ memorial dinner on the latest episode of “Power Book II: Ghost.”
In the buzzy scene, she can be seen tiddaying tremendously while delivering her signature barbs that we’d love to see more of next season.
A growing fan favorite, the emerging star’s stock continues to rise as a rumored new addition to the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast.
When asked directly by BOSSIP to address the rumor, Keisha didn’t confirm nor deny the news.
“I wanna say that I really, really love the show,” she said during BOSSIP’s #RealityRecap on IG Live. “I think the show is great, shout out to all of the housewives and we’ll see what the future holds.”
As for the thirsties shooting their shot after her viral scene, they’d be sad to know she’s engaged to her longtime love Coca Vango who popped the question in front of friends.
“We’ve been cool for like 10 years and together for like three and a half and I could not do anything that I’ve done in my career without this girl right here,” said Coca before dropping down on one knee. “I really wanna know in front of everybody, will you marry me?”
Keisha of course accepted and said, “Yes!”

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ relationship is like a modern-day fairytale — complete with multiple, lavish weddings! See their entire romance timeline.
Former Disney Channel star Nick Jonas and actress Priyanka Chopra are one of Hollywood’s hottest power couples. The pair, whose love story began when the Jonas Brothers singer slid into her DMs, look more in love every time we see them! With news that they’re now sharing that love with a new baby, we’re looking back at the timeline of their romance!
Nick slides into Priyanka’s DMs in 2016
Talk about modern-day romance! The Camp Rock star made the first move by sending his future wife a Twitter DM, which read, “I’m hearing from a few mutual friends that we should meet,” Nick told Vogue. Priyanka replied the same day, “My team can read this. Why don’t you just text me.” The couple had a mutual friend in Graham Rogers, who starred in Quantico with Priyanka and Careful What You Wish For with Nick. The singer later recalled telling Graham, “Priyanka. Is. Wow.”
2017 Met Gala
The pair had texted back and forth for some time and eventually met for a drink at the Carlyle hotel in New York, they told Vogue. They went back to Priyanka’s apartment, where Nick met her mom for the first time. One week later, the duo walked arm-in-arm up the steps of The Met for the 2017 Met Gala. They both wore Ralph Lauren outfits, with Priyanka turning heads in her trench coat-inspired dress featuring a 20-foot train! Priyanka later explained that they attended under the guise of wearing the same designer — nobody had suspected the pair may have been dating. “We were both wearing Ralph Lauren, and we decided to go together. It was fun,” she said during a Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearance. “We were at the same table. I mean, we know each other, so we were just like, ‘Hey let’s go together,’ and I was like, ‘Okay, let’s go together.’ And it just ended up working out.”
The couple gets engaged
Romance rumors had died down for almost a year, until the couple were spotted out and about in the summer of 2018. In late June, Nick shared his first IG Story of Priyanka, seemingly confirming the relationship, and fans couldn’t get enough! Less than one month later, they revealed some very exciting news: they were engaged! Nick got down on one knee in Crete, Greece on midnight after his future wife’s July 18 birthday. He popped the question with a Tiffany & Co. ring, which he had picked out a few weeks prior when he shut down the London store. “I said: Will you make me the happiest man in the world and marry me?” he later recalled. “No joke—she took about 45 seconds. Forty-five seconds of silence.” Of course, Priyanka said yes, and they were officially engaged!
They wed in a traditional Hindu ceremony
The Jonas-Chopra three-day extravaganza was definitely one for the ages! Their days-long nuptials took place in India at the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. The luxe palace, which stretches across 26 acres of land, is the sixth-largest private residence in the world. Celebrations began on November 30 with “pre-wedding rituals” Priyanka explained to Ellen DeGeneres in early 2019. “It was just three days. One Indian ceremony and one Western Christian ceremony and one day of pre-rituals which we have in the Hindu wedding,” she said. “Usually, Indian weddings are like a thousand people, at least. We had only 200, which was mostly family – both of us have giant families. We wanted to keep it super intimate.” For the Hindu ceremony, Priyanka wore a ruby red lehenga designed by Sabyasachi.
Nick & Priyanka tie the knot again
As for the Western ceremony, Priyanka wore a hand-beaded and hand-embroidered Ralph Lauren gown which took 1,826 hours to create! To top it off, Priyanka walked down the aisle with a 75-foot long veil. Nick’s tuxedo was also designed by Ralph Lauren to complement his bride, and his father Paul Kevin Jonas Sr. officiated the wedding. Talk about a fairytale romance!
Sucker Music Video
When the Jonas Brothers announced their return to the music scene with their hit song “Sucker”, Nick, Kevin and Joe, joined forces with their leading ladies (Kevin’s wife Danielle Jonas, Joe’s future wife Sophie Turner, and Priyanka) for a colorful music video. “I actually didn’t know much about [The Jonas Brothers],” Priyanka previously told Ellen. “Nick and I both didn’t know much about each other, so we did a show-and-tell after we started dating where we showed each other our work from when we were younger — the embarrassing stuff, like the horrible things. It was great. That’s how we got to know each other’s careers.”
Met Gala 2019
Although they walked the carpet together years prior, 2019 marked the first time Nick and Priyanka attended as a couple. Given the theme of the ball was camp, the brunette beauty wore a grey Dior gown, complete with a cape featuring colorful, floor-gazing feathers. Nick suited up in an all-white look with glittering jeweled accents. Their relationship has truly been going from strength to strength ever since, and we can’t wait to see what they do next!
Nick & Priyanka become parents
Almost five years since Nick first slid into Priyanka’s DMs, and three years after they tied the knot, the lovebirds became parents for the first time. The couple revealed they were parents on Jan. 21, 2021. “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate,” the two said in statements posted to their respective Instagram accounts. “We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family.”
The announcement came after Priyanka said that she and Nick were considering starting a family, but not yet. “They’re a big part of our desire for the future,” Priyanka told Vanity Fair. “By God’s grace, when it happens, it happens.”
