Sophie Turner brought her dude friends with her on her first date with Joe Jonas

Prince Jean-Christophe Napoléon and Olympia d'Arco-Zinneberg are married

Sophie Turner covers the latest issues of Elle and British Elle. The photoshoot and interview were conducted in California, and the interview is the same in both publications. I learned her legal name for the first time! Since marrying Joe Jonas, she is Sophie Belinda Jonas. Wow. She really does not look like a Sophie Belinda. I actually learned a lot of new stuff in this cover story, but she doesn’t talk about her pregnancy at all (the profile mentions that there are “rumors” of a pregnancy though). You can read the full piece here. Some highlights

She likes being sweary and mean: ‘Because English people are perhaps a little more OK than Americans with being sarcastic and rude to each other’.

Sophie had a twin who died before birth. ‘My therapist has come to this conclusion [that’s why] I constantly have to twin with people.’

She was set up with Joe Jonas & she thought he would suck: ‘I was living with friends in Camden, in a really rough flat – people were always climbing in and out of the windows. When I told my friends, they were like, “Yes! Joe Jonas! That’s hilarious. You have to do it. And you have to text us everything he says. I expected him to show up with security and everything. I thought he would be such a d*ck. I took all my guy friends with me to meet him, because in the back of my mind I was worried he could be a catfish, or… I don’t know what. I just wanted my guy friends with me. I had my rugby boys. I was safe.’

Their first date was in a bar in Camden. ‘It was just this local sh*tty bar. It’s kind of the worst, but it’s also kind of the best – dirty with great music and people throwing up everywhere. It was that kind of place. The best thing was that he didn’t bring security. He brought a friend and they drank just as hard as the rest of us. I remember us two spending only a couple of minutes on the dance floor, and then we found a space in the far corner and we just talked. We talked for hours, and hours, and hours. And I wasn’t bored. It wasn’t contrived, it wasn’t small talk – it was just so easy. Soon, we were inseparable. And then I went on tour with him.’

She thinks she’s punching above her weight: ‘With Joe, I always felt like I was the one who was punching way above my weight. And I still feel like that. He’s so handsome, he’s so talented, he’s so funny, he’s so charismatic. How am I with him? So… I don’t know. I’m really lucky to be with him and have someone like him want to be around me and spend time with me.’

She loves being married: ‘I feel as though the only thing that’s changed for me is having this incredible sense of security. Just the word “husband” and the word “wife” – they solidify the relationship. I love being married. I think it’s wonderful. I’m sure we’ll have our hiccups, but right now the security and the safety are everything.

Her new series: ‘In Survive, my character has been in rehab for an entire year. And I suffer with depression. I suffer with anxiety and eating disorders, too – there’s a good amount of stuff in my family. It felt like I knew so much of that world.’

She also talks about how close she is to her sister-in-law Priyanka Chopra and how Joe and Nick only live ten minutes away from each other, so they see each other all the time. That’s really nice. And she talked about the final season of Game of Thrones, but she didn’t say anything interesting and besides, I’m over that conversation. I really respect Joe Jonas for really winning over a skeptical Sophie, and for making her feel so loved and supported. She really seems so happy with him. I feel sort of bad for thinking they were a terrible couple.

    Sophie come across nice and I can see why priyanka chopra hangs out with her a lot. With sophie around priyanka seems to accomplished so much. No sign of priyanka in bollywood , its seems top circle in Bollywood didnt forgive her for sleeping with married men.

    • North of Boston says:

      And how does that “top circle in Bollywood” feel about the married men who supposedly cheated on their spouses?

      • Aria says:

        Same . That’s why most bollywood spouse is so much involved in their hubby business. Men also get lot of criticism for cheating in india. That’s why priyanka got banished not one but sleeping with two married top actors.

      • North of Boston says:

        So there’s no sign of them in Bollywood anymore, either?

      • Aria says:

        Few are banished but the two top actors remind beacuse they suck up to blue blood bollywood celeb aka Karen johar. He is the one who make sure who is in and who is out. Bollywood is very closed circle and full of narcissist only actors and actress comes from industry people ( their children) outsider are not allowed . Nepotism best example is Bollywood.

      • Sarah says:

        Oh nothing happened to the married actor who had an affair with her. He’s still treated like a demigod. Even letterman did an episode on him for his netflix show.

      • Carey says:

        It did damage his reputation but he of course has recovered and is still very much a superstar, though his films have done poorly recently (mostly because of bad script choices and nothing to do with Priyanka). There are affairs all the time in Bollywood, but what got Priyanka banned is she pushed very hard to have her relationship legitimized and public but ultimately the boyfriend wasn’t willing to give up his marriage and the massive hit to his popularity that would’ve ensued (India is still very conservative and Shahrukh Khan divorcing his wife for a younger actress would probably destroy his career).

      • Mary S says:

        Yes. Because he sucked up to some blue blood Bollywood guy. Priyanka should have sucked up too… 😒
        (Sarcasm)

      • North of Boston says:

        About the woman accused of these things:

        ” No sign of priyanka in bollywood”

        About the men accused of these things:

        “Few are banished” but some remain.

        So, no, I guess not “same”.

  2. Digital Unicorn says:

    I like Sophie and wish her continued success. Priyanka, she kinda rubs me the wrong way – can’t really put my finger on why.

  3. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    I’ll admit to not knowing a thing about Sophie until this post so I’m just going on an initial impression here. She seems nice and like she got into her marriage for the right reasons. I hope she and Joe have a lifetime of happiness. Which is hard for a Hollywood couple but I’m gonna wish it for them, anyway. Priyanka is not one of my favorite people. I can’t quite put my finger on it but she rubs me the wrong way.

  4. Joanna says:

    I saw an interview Conan did with her and I like her!

  5. Spicecake38 says:

    These magazine pics are really beautiful,sometimes people look so different in these types photos and she looks like herself but more styled.
    I really liked her as a red head but the blonde hair and eye makeup make her beautiful in a soft, beautiful without trying too hard kind of way.

  6. MaryContrary says:

    I think she’s darling, and he seems like he adores her. I kind of worry that she still thinks she’s punching above her weight. Girl-own how wonderful you are! He’s lucky to be with you!

    • bettyrose says:

      She definitely sees him through love colored glasses. I get that she’s not really Sansa Stark, and maybe she isn’t a gentle flower turned epic badass in real life, but I do think her career is much more impressive than his, certainly shattering more glass ceilings, but it’s great that she found a true partner in him.

      • Alyse says:

        I always heard that a great relationship is when you both think that you’re the one punching above your weight… basically, when you’re mutually wondering “how did I get so lucky?!” I think it’s nice in that context :)

      • Summer says:

        @ Alyse: You bet. That is the making of a good relationship. You’re close, but there is also a need to still impress your SO and it keeps you on your toes.

        She’s a doll. They seem really happy, congrats to them both.

    • AMM says:

      I think the punching above her weight thing is probably just because he was a superstar for the tween bracket when she was in that demographic. I think there will always be that inner fan girl In her. I find it sweet, so long as hes not expecting it.

  7. Lucy says:

    Yeah, I absolutely think Joe and her are the real deal. I just wish she didn’t think he’s out of her league!!

  8. Sean says:

    She seems very likable. I’ve also grown to appreciate what she and Joe have. They seem like a great couple and I like she acknowledges relationships aren’t hunky-dory all of the time. I hope they have a long and happy life together.

  9. Bucky Bieber says:

    ‘Punching above my weight.’

    Not a phrase I’m entirely comfortable with given the prevalence of spousal violence. But how do you measure what ‘league’ you’re in and what ‘league’ others are in? It seems like a frustratingly elusive thing to gauge.

  10. Camilleann says:

    I like her a lot, she seems really down to earth & loves her husband…good for them

  11. Awkward symphony says:

    I like sophie because she’s not stuck up like other GOT stars. She and kit seem so down to earth and normal. I also like maisie but she is very guarded and isnt as sociable as them two. I wish her and jona all the best. They’ll surely be a cute little family.

    • North of Boston says:

      I’ve never noticed any other GOT stars seeming “stuck up”

      But Sophie seems very charming; her public clips with Maisie are very funny and of their ages.

      And though I’ve never warmed to any of the Jonas bros, Joe seems more appealing because of her partnership with him.

  12. Erinn says:

    “Sophie had a twin who died before birth. ‘My therapist has come to this conclusion [that’s why] I constantly have to twin with people.’”

    How did nobody comment on that one? That’s weird as hell, and it sounds like she’s talking to a quack. Beyond that – wasn’t she the same girl who flipped her shit because someone had to take her Juul away while filming? I suppose she seems nice enough, she’s an okay actress, but I can see why she’s feeling like she was punching above her weight. The Jonas Brother’s were EVERYWHERE for a while, and they had a near seamless comeback – BUT – I do think the fact that he was with her helped that comeback. It was timed very wisely.

    • MB says:

      She didnt flip her shit. I think that whole story stemmed from an anecdote that Jen Lawrence told about how in the movie Sophie is crying and that the tears were real because her Juul was taken off her just before the director called ‘action’.
