Sophie Turner spills all the tea in a new interview.
The “Game of Thrones” actress reveals that dating Joe Jonas is like living in a fishbowl. In a new interview with Marie Claire UK, Turner said the rumours about their relationship can be frustrating.
“You do feel like you’re living in a fishbowl. It’s frustrating that it’s the most mundane things that make the news—how boring!” Turner said.
The actress said she’s happy in her relationship, but would prefer a different moniker from fans. Her and Jonas are currently nicknamed “Jophie” but she prefers “Mophie” the nickname for her and “Game of Thrones” co-star Maisie Williams. “What’s that thing they say? Relationships come and go but friendship is always there,” Turner said.
She admitted that fame does come with a price. She isn’t a fan of fans trying to sneak a picture of her and Jonas and would prefer if they would just come up and ask for one. “I find it really rude, and I will be rude back,” she said.
“It’s such an invasion of privacy. I could be out with my mum on her birthday and I will ask them to delete it. I would much rather them come up and ask for a photo. I will probably be fine with it…unless I look s**t!” she explained.
As for her career, Turner confessed that she’s learned to enjoy acting more as she’s gotten older. “There’s a certain sense when you’re 15 and you’re just kind of like, a pawn, and you’ll say, ‘Yeah, I will do what you want,’ but now I’m like, ‘You know, actually I don’t like this'” she said.
For her, it was working with her “X-Men: Apocalypse” co-star Jennifer Lawrence that she learned to be more assertive on set.
“She would do a take and be like, “Cut! That was such bad acting! Her being able to stop; it was inspiring to see someone so in control,” she revealed. The actress also admits to having been through media training for doing press but said it wasn’t her thing.
“I’ve had media training, and I hated it. I think people appreciate honesty. Kristen Stewart doing interviews and talking about her sexuality; it’s so forward-thinking. I like that. Cut the bulls**t,” she spilled.
When “Game of Thrones” comes to an end, Turner said she will mourn the series as if someone died. “‘Game of Thrones’ has been a huge chunk of my life. When it’s done, it’s going to feel like a death in the family,” she said.
