One of the biggest highlights of 2019 has been the “return of the Joni,” as Nick Jonas perfectly dubbed the much-buzzed-about reunion.
Sitting down with ET Canada as part of the “UglyDolls” press tour, the Jonas brother confirmed that the band will be hitting the road “at some point this year.”
“We haven’t [officially] announced the tour yet, but we’re going to go on tour. I mean, I can say that,” he revealed. “We’re very excited. I mean, the reaction to this music has just been unbelievable, and we’re so grateful for our fans, for sticking around. And all these new fans as well.”
The 26-year-old also opened up about his relationship with wife Priyanka Chopra.
“Married life is amazing,” Jonas explained. “Having your teammate, your person, kind of on your side through everything is just incredible. I highly suggest it.”
When asked if the newlyweds plan on taking their talents to the big screen together, the “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” star teased it isn’t completely out of the question.
“Possibly,” Jonas shared. “I mean, we’re with each other all the time, so there’s always conversations — creative conversations. We love spit-balling ideas and talking through different things, and we’ll see what happens.”
As for that nickname, ‘Old Man Jonas’? Let’s just say, it’s not his favourite.
“She’s sort of the free spirit in our relationship,” he admitted. “I’m a bit more structured, and she takes it as me being an old man. But I don’t know if that’s the case.”
With his first animated feature set to hit theatres May 3, Jonas also discussed taking on a villainous role.
“It’s very fun,” he said, “and I think outside of my comfort zone a little bit. I’m not quite like [my character] Lou, unless I’ve not had my coffee in the morning — otherwise, I can go that way. But as an actor, it’s kind of a dream scenario to be a jerk and to play that out in this way. It really gives you the freedom to explore, and kind of take a very different approach to everyday life.”
Touching on the film’s “incredibly relevant” themes of “accepting your imperfections and accepting others and yourself,” he brought up his own struggles.
“[I] was always putting too much pressure on myself,” Jonas conceded. “Stressing out about career achievements and other things like that and not take the time to sit back, enjoy the moment.
“I think I’ve gotten better at it but there are still moments when some of that stress creeps back in, and I think it’s important for everyone to take that time to enjoy life.”
