Priyanka Chopra is single but not so ready to mingle.

The 34-year-old actress covers Marie Claire's April issue and admits to the magazine that she's not actively seeking out romantic relationships. "I’m not someone who looks for love. I don’t believe in making it happen," she says. "My life has been shaped by so many serendipitous moments so far, I feel like, 'Why screw with a good thing?'"

In addition to being a fan of the late rapper, Chopra also reveals that she was an avid viewer of Baywatch, which explains why she's so excited to star in the upcoming TV show-turned-movie. "I loved Baywatch so much growing up. It was the quintessential American Dream," the Indian actress exclaims. "All those beautiful people in bathing suits, running slow-mo on the beach in Malibu -- amazing!”

While fans know her for her action-packed role on ABC's Quantico, they may not know about Chopra's hidden talent. "I'm, like, freakishly flexible," she dishes to Marie Claire. "It's an art."

ET caught up with Chopra at the People's Choice Awards and got the details on her recent injury on the Quantico set that left her hospitalized.

"I was doing stunts and it was raining that night -- or snowing, or whatever -- in New York, and I was wearing rubber boots," she shared. "I've done so many stunts before and I never got hurt, but I slipped on a wet road while I was saving someone else -- another co-actor of mine -- and I hit my head on the bumper of the car and the road."
