Sophie Turner who gave fans the surprise of their lives with a surprise wedding to Joe Jonas bares open her journey of their love story. Sophie who tied the in a low-key surprise wedding with the help of an Elvis Presley impersonator at Las Vegas reveals that not everything was then a bed of roses against their now, new found happy nuptial life.
Speaking to UK’s The Times, Sophie told the daily that she and Joe parted ways for a brief period of time before finally exchanging their vows.
“It was the worst day of our lives,” Turner told the paper. “For a second we both had cold feet, then 24 hours later we were both, like, ‘Never mind.’”
Sophie who reportedly battled though mental health and body image struggles that even resulted her to go about a year without her periods adds that it was the singer who appeared as the night in a shining armour during her worst point of time.
“I was going through this phase of being very mentally unwell,” the actress recalled. “He was, like, ‘I can’t be with you until you love yourself, I can’t see you love me more than you love yourself.’ That was something, him doing that. I think he kind of saved my life, in a way.”
She implied that the breakup had to do with her mental health which now-husband Joe Jonas help her battle through. “I’m with someone that makes me realize I do have some redeeming qualities, I suppose,” she told ‘Dr Phil’ host Phil McGraw in April. “And when someone tells you they love you every day, it makes you really think about why that is, and I think it makes you love yourself a bit more.”
Sophie also further added that it was her onscreen role as Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones which was also a rope in the river during her battle of depression. Speaking to the Times, she added, “It sounds stupid, but I don’t think I would have been able to get through the hardships — I mean, boo hoo — but the hardships, mental health-wise, in my life without playing Sansa and without having that constant inspiration,” she told the outlet. “If she can do it, then I can definitely do it.”
