Sophie Turner is ‘kind of loving’ the quarantine: ‘I’m an introvert, I’m a homebody’

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner get a head start on their baby's wardrobe! Couple shops for baby clothes

I haven’t been watching most of the talk shows and late-night shows, almost all of which have been airing from hosts’ homes. I would imagine some hosts are better at link-up interviews than others. Conan O’Brien has transitioned really well? I’m just judging him from this interview with Sophie Turner, who joined him via link-up on his show last night. Sophie was in a great mood, and she admitted that she’s “kind of loving” the quarantine, while Joe Jonas is not:

“I’m an introvert, I’m a homebody, if I could stay at home all day I would, so this is great for me,” she shared, revealing that she only goes leaves the house to walk their dog. However, while Sophie loves staying at home and spending time with Joe, quarantine is like a “prison for him.”

“Joe and I… everything seems to be working out in my favor here because Joe is a real social butterfly and I struggle to lock him down and just spend time with me. It’s like a prison for him, but it’s great for me.”

[From Just Jared]

She also says that Joe texts her while they’re in the house together and she brings him shots of tequila. Sophie doesn’t understand why people are struggling to practice social distancing because “all you have to do is stay at home and, like, get drunk at home.” My favorite part is when she suggests that people who bother to wear jeans in isolation are psychopaths.

    I’m happy to stay home too, but eventually I’ll have to go out for something and I don’t know how I’ll do it. What about dentist appointments, GYN checkups, regular physicals? I don’t want to set foot in any public place for the rest of my days. Everything looks germ-ridden to me now. 🤢

    • Astrid says:

      most routine medical visits have been put on hold

    • Jenn says:

      We think our dental office won’t be open again until June, if we’re lucky. We can still take emergency patients, but can’t use the high speed drill or air/water. Nothing that creates an aerosol. Pretty much extractions only at this point.

    • Esmom says:

      I know what you mean. I only recently went back to work in an office after working from home for over 15 years and this period of reverting back to working from home is really nice.

      I asked my friends yesterday, somewhat hopefully, if they thought we might as a society become more “distant” after this and they all said they think we’ll go back to our old habits of congregating in big crowds and not washing our hands again in a heartbeat. Sigh.

    • JanetDR says:

      Every appointment I had (dental, chiro, acupuncture, etc) have been cancelled, although they will see emergency cases in the case of dental.
      I missed my last hair appointment just before everything shut down and I am sporting a lot of head wraps just to keep it out of my face! I bought a couple of those braided hair headbands for when the dark roots start to show, because it’s not like she will be able to fit everyone in at once but we will have to go back to work.

  2. Eliza_ says:

    I WFH normally and just came off maternity leave where I stayed home unless medically required I leave. So except not going for an occasional coffee, yeah, my life feels oddly the same. Obviously there’s more little changes and the daily news gives my anxiety,
    but my daily routine isn’t terribly different. My husband, like hers, is less at ease being home 24/7.

  3. runcmc says:

    Well that answers if she’s pregnant then, no? If she’s saying she’s just getting drunk at home?

    I felt very similarly to her at first because I’m definitely an introvert and a homebody, but then we had a family emergency several states away in a state with travel restrictions and I’m not able to be with my family. It’s all fun and games until something real happens, unfortunately.

    • Margetta says:

      It seemed to me she was speaking generally and about Joe. She didn’t say SHE was drinking or getting drunk–just that “all people have to do is stay home and get drunk.” And she was also joking around. I don’t think it at all sounded like she was saying she was sitting home getting drunk. She even said specifically she was pouring shots for Joe…not for her and Joe.

    • Nikki* says:

      I’m sorry for your separation from family, runcmc; that certainly takes it out of fun-and-games territory. I was startled at my sister’s out-and-out enthusiasm for life in the pandemic; she was chortling she’s gotten so many projects done. I was shocked because I’ve been very worried for her stepson who is in prison in NY, and we have several folks in our family with extreme underlying health issues. It seemed crass to me she viewed it mainly as a chance to catch up on her to-do list, but my kind husband said for all we know, she might be on anti-depressants. If people can be happy during this, I guess I should just be happy for them, because goodness knows there are plenty of worried or suffering people.

  4. Pineapple says:

    My partner and I are in the same situation. Introverts trapped with people they love? It’s not all bad.

    The reason we are trapped though … it is pretty unnerving.

    Oh, to be young and in love and quarantined!!!

    • IMUCU says:

      @Pineapple, Yes, I agree: happy to be at home more, but not about the reason. I’m in FL and there are still a lot of businesses open, it’s unbelievable. Traffic is down, but not as much as it should be. Our govenor just doesn’t want to upset Trump in some way by locking us down. I’m a nurse in a pediatric office. While the patient load is WAY down and we are going home earlier now, we are still considered essential and doing COVID tests, so we remain open. I wouldn’t mind being put on a PRN schedule though and having to stay home more.

    • tiredTreaded says:

      Home cook here, amateur martha Stewart, etc. Initially I did a million things to prepare- all the pet food, kitty litter, fixed everything, cleaned the vents (again) pickled and canned, stocked the fridge. Now, Sadly I’m sick. THAT sick, painful cough that keeps me up, stabbing chest pains etc. I have always felt compassion for everyone’s fear, but now it’s mine. I’m going to the hospital today.

      • CuriousCole says:

        TiredTreaded I’m so sorry. I was a presumptive positive case and yes, the chest pain was like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. It was 50 mini ice picks that got extra sharp whenever I coughed. I know the terror and I’m sorry. My tip is to manage the cough with suppressents, preferably prescription but OTC will help too if your insurance won’t cover benzonatate. It won’t help in severe cases, but for “mild” cases, tackling a cough is something accessible to many. Fewer coughs will help lessen the chest pain and sore throat. My symptoms started getting better around day 9/10. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

  5. Ali says:

    I thought she was pregnant?

    But yeah I agree that her.

    I have no issues staying home. It’s the lack of money and work that the annoying me.

  6. Lolamd says:

    *Raises hand – I wear jeans at home. It has taken MANY months for these jeans to be almost like sweatpants. So yes I wear my very comfortable jeans at home. If that makes me wrong, I don’t want to be right… : P

    • Esmom says:

      I have a really comfortable pair of jeans, too, that I now reserve for wearing only at home. I feel like the key is them not having any stretch whatsoever, which loosens them up a little bit and makes them feel softer.

    • FHMom says:

      I wear my jeans at home because I am concerned I’ll gain so much weight that they won’t fit me. I’m not naturally thin and I associate sweatpants with weight gain. I have been wearing them for comfort these days, but it would bring me down to wear them every day. The one thing I have joyfully given up is make up! Why wear make up when you aren’t leaving the house? I do get some people will say it makes them feel good about themselves or it’s something they enjoy.

    • ab says:

      I’m also a home jeans wearer, lol. If I wear pjs or yoga pants all day I don’t get anything done and just feel listless. My jeans are comfy and broken in and soft.

      Also, I am an introverted SAHM, and this home quarantine has been fine for me except for the fact that my whole family is home with me. I would like my quiet apartment back, and some space to be alone (I’m in NYC) … but I’m not bouncing off the walls like my extroverted husband and kids. Yet! 😂

    • Nikki* says:

      God help me, my drawstring jammer bottoms are getting too tight to get past my hips. Yes.

    • Sof says:

      I wear jeans at home too. I never understood why people who find jeans uncomfortable still wears them!

    • JillyBeann says:

      I too wear jeans at home all the time… i usually am extremely dressed up at the office – so denim is at home leisure ware…. this whole think about wearing jogging pants and lulus all day long i cant get into because that is excercise clothes…

      It the pajama thing that freaks me out! people staying in pyjamas all day long!

      (I’m still getting up and getting dressed with makeup and all every day since our quarantine started….. helps keep the sanity of it all for me!)

    • Antonym says:

      I’m getting dressed for the day each day as if I were leaving the house. I’m definitely not leaving the house but I find that getting dressed for my “out of house” activities and then changing to my comfy clothes for “home time” really helps. I need something to mark the separation.

  7. MellyMel says:

    Fellow introvert here. This hasn’t been a struggle for me, but the reason is why I’m home is stressful obviously. I feel like my family/friends that are more extroverted are really struggling.

  8. Sean says:

    I actually agree with her. I’m an INTJ and my overall lifestyle is pandemic compatible. The only thing I’m really missing is going for hikes in state parks and eating out on weekends.

    • anna says:

      Yes, you and me dude. Fellow INTJ here. It’s comforting to know that I’m not a weirdo. I don’t miss all this superfluous social interaction and feel little need for closeness and personal connection. I’m quite happy skyping my clients and otherwise staying tf away from the world. But i miss restaurant food. Eaten in a restaurant.

      • CROOKSNNANNIES says:

        Y’all I’m an ESFP married to an INTJ and our reactions to this-like us- could not be more opposite! He feels chill and relaxed but has energy and I feel like I’m not even a whole person because I’m so disconnected from the world and the people I care about. Working on it though haha

      • Sean says:

        Agreed Anna!

  9. Slowsnow says:

    This is a real test for those people who claim to be real introverts and in fact are not- it seems like a trend to say it weirdly?
    I am definitely happy to stay at home even more than usual but the reason to stay in is horrifying.

    • Ali says:

      Yes this! My partner swears he’s an extroverted introvert (?) and he is dying without anywhere to go, no new people to see. Me? I am an introvert and the only things bothering me are the weather making it difficult to get fresh air and being trapped with a non- introvert lol.

    • CuriousCole says:

      I spent 20 years of thinking I was an intensive introvert but within a week I was already missing people. This is confusing lol.

  10. Chisey says:

    I don’t mind the actual being home part but I get very stressed about being apart from my parents (what if they get sick?) and about leaving my apartment to do things like laundry or getting mail/packages. Social distancing is really hard in an apt building and it stresses me out so much! You can’t stay 6 feet away passing someone in the hallway etc. I’m glad she’s doing well though.

  11. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    @SlowSnow, I honestly don’t understand why anyone would want to be an introvert so badly they stretch truths but they do don’t they? Very weird. Perhaps it’s because a social, busy life outside the home is more measurable by others? Who knows. I couldn’t care less. My family has to rent hydraulic extraction tools for an evening out. Until I’m post menopausal, I choose to be a raging, hot and sweaty bitch at home where I keep the air cold and my demeanor colder lol.

  12. Babadook says:

    I’m surprised Sophie Turner considers herself an introvert. If that’s the case, I must be like a Boo Radley level recluse lol

    • Sean says:

      There are many different types of introverts. Some are even ambiverts (mixture of extrovert and introvert).

    • katharine says:

      I enjoyed this comment, Babadook (and your screen name). I’m a Boo Radley too.

  13. adastraperaspera says:

    My partner and I are introverts, so we’re busy with our deep thoughts and existential angst. But our neighbors keep calling us asking what we’re doing, are we lonely, are we free for facetime, do we want to come to the bottom of the driveway and chat across the street, what about birthdays coming up, etc. Our street is like an extrovert parade all day (everyone six feet apart except kids and dogs).

    • Nikki* says:

      I am overwhelmed with all the helpful emails I’m getting about how to keep my spirits up; I can’t read them all!

  14. lucy2 says:

    I live alone and love having time at home – a weekend with nothing planned where I could get some stuff done around here and relax? Heaven.
    But this hasn’t been at all relaxing. I’m lucky and still working, from home, but have found I don’t have much energy to do anything else, and I’m so worried about everyone.

    • Nikki* says:

      Me too.

    • ME says:

      This for sure hasn’t been relaxing. I’ll be shocked if there’s anyone who won’t have some form of PTSD after this is all over. The stress of worrying about yourself and others is too much. Watching the news is anxiety inducing. All this free time at home but you really can’t do much. I just want this to all be over already. All the little things we used to complain about just seem so stupid now.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Yeah, it’s the stress that’s really the issue, IMO. This isn’t a typical WFH situation where all’s well and you keep moving. You have to work with the constant subconscious stress of what’s going regarding public health, politics, and economics, along with the knowledge that the repercussions of this will be felt for years down the line.

  15. Valerie says:

    If I’m being honest, me too. But I know that isn’t the case for everyone, so I have to stay mindful of that. This quarantine is rough on people who were already isolated before, or who are experiencing sudden isolation and can no longer count on regular in-person nteractions that were important to their well-being.

  16. Margetta says:

    For those immediately deciding this means she isn’t pregnant, I mean who cares if she is or isn’t, I guess, but it seemed to me she was speaking generally and about Joe. She didn’t say SHE was drinking or getting drunk–just that “all people have to do is stay home and get drunk.” And she was also joking around. I don’t think it at all sounded like she was saying she was sitting home getting drunk. She even said specifically she was pouring shots for Joe…not for her and Joe. Just my take.

    This interview was the first I’ve ever seen with her. She was adorable. I didn’t expect her to be so likable for some reason.

  17. Veronica S. says:

    I do think it’s very telling about who is struggling here. I tend to fall right between extrovert and introvert, and being at home isn’t really bothering me that much. I miss seeing friends and traveling for my job, but it’s really only the WFH part that’s annoying because I liked the activity level of my job. So I’m just very…restless, wanting to get up in move. Which is important because I am definitely snacking WAY more than I do when I’m not at home lol. There’s a reason I’m exercising every day now.

    For me, somebody fortunate to have kept their job, the stress of thinking about the long term repercussions of this pandemic is really where my struggle is. It’s just a constant background noise to me underlying everything with anxiety and worry.

    • Naddie says:

      I’m eating like crazy, somebody needs to stop me, even my little niece is accusing me of stealing her food.

  18. StrawberryBlonde says:

    I would consider myself an introvert- I like my quiet time to recharge. But I am also social and like getting out of the house. I also have a 13 month old and have been on maternity leave since he was born. I was looking forward to getting back to the office next week and having some office adult time while LO was in daycare in the morning (and with his nightshift working dad in the afternoon). Now I will be working from home (I work in the food supply chain so we’ve been busy), while trying to re-learn my job, while also parenting a 13 month old. Luckily my hubby can get up early and do the parenting for a good chunk of the day (and nap while LO naps). But I will be “working” from 8-10am while trying to parent my son. That makes me nervous. But it is what it is.

    From a mental health perspective, one of the only things that kept me going this year was getting out for activities with my son – just to break up the day even. Swimming, playdates, etc. I miss that so much and the last 3 weeks of my maternity leave definitely haven’t been what I expected! My parents haven’t seen my son in 4 weeks now and that is heartbreaking. I also just want to hug my mom but cannot. On top of social distancing, my hubby is an essential worker so we never know what he is exposed to.

    Also totally a jeans wearer here. Look I worked hard to lose 90-100lbs before I ever got pregnant. Kept it off for years. I am nearly back to my pre pregnancy weight and fitness level (I am a runner) and I do NOT want to gain a ton of weight during this time. I am not naturally slim – it is something I choose to work at. I fully intend to get “dressed for work” next week even though I am working from home – just to feel a sense of normalcy.

  19. Lindy says:

    If I had no kids and didn’t have to figure out how to parent a 2yo and also keep my 10yo on track while tag teaming with my husband so that we both can try to keep our jobs so long as we have them…. Then I would be in total agreement with her on this!

    I adore my kids and my husband. But yesterday after we had a water main burst and had to get a plumber out here and were without water most of the day, my husband and I just kind of looked at each other and laughed. There is absolutely no way we can manage all of this and do a decent job.

    If it were just my husband and me? We would be totally thrilled to hang out with each other and do our work and maybe get out in the garden more and read all the things.

    Instead I am desperately trying to keep my toddler from eating Play-Doh while he’s strapped in next to me for meetings.

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      Hardest thing over here has been helping my kid organize his online studies. Each teacher has a specific zoom time, where to retrieve assignments and how and when to submit and hardest of all, making him do it lol. He thinks it’s summer break, and I’m like noooooooo, wake up now and get to work!

  20. Diamond Rottweiler says:

    Those two have been doing a live baking show most days recently on Instagram and it’s utterly charming in that it’s very clear neither knows how to bake. She was trying to grease a pan with a piece of cold butter and a spatula the other day. Lol. And if she isn’t pregnant, her outfits on there aren’t doing her any favors. But they seem very sweet and happy together.

  21. Naddie says:

    In case we still don’t know how stupid and clueless rich people can be, the quarantine is showing us. They don’t understand how hard it can be because they don’t undertand anything. I’m painfully introverted and my house is my temple, but I would never say it’s all about stay home and do whatever.

  22. mea says:

    I don’t think struggling with this crisis means you’re less of an introvert. I’m very introverted – so introverted it caused people to speculate and worry about me as a child, as I preferred my own company to large groups of children. After years of health issues, I was just starting to get out of the house more before the crisis hit. Again, I’m missing the freedom of choosing if I would like to go out or not, and it’s causing me stress.

    Also, what about worries about the economy, or the health of your loved ones? It’s not just about being “happy to stay home”, there’s lots of other aspects.
