And he goes to the hotel and he calls me from there and I was like, 'Take your camera out and take a picture of where they are and send it to me,'" Chopra Jonas said, adding that the man "didn't ask me questions."The actress said that she came clean to Jonas about the spying later, and he was unfazed by it.
"I was gathering information," Chopra Jonas said. "It's very important for a woman to gather information. Knowledge is power."
