Sophie Turner Shared Some Very Personal Details About Her Pre-Joe Jonas Dating History
One Jonas wedding is in the rear view mirror (Or is it? Because another ceremony would definitely not be surprising at all), so the spotlight is ready to turn to Sophie Turner and her Jo-Beau, Joe. But her rumored summer wedding isn't all that's in store for the actress — with the final season of Game of Thrones on the horizon, she's doubling up on major events.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, she opened up about both, including the fact that she doesn't share her fiancé's squeaky-clean image (remember the JoBro purity rings?). She told the magazine that before meeting Jonas, she was "fully preparing ... to be single for the rest of my life." After meeting the middle bro and getting engaged in October 2017, however, she says that she's happier than ever. And while some critics are already pointing to their six-year age difference as a possible hiccup in their marital bliss, she doesn't see it that way. She says that even though she's only 23, she feels much, much older and closer in age to Jonas than other twenty-somethings. She also drops a little more knowledge in the interview, saying that she's no stranger to experimenting — and that she doesn't love genders, she loves what's inside.
"I think once you've found the right person, you just know. I feel like I'm much older a soul than I am in age. I've met enough guys to know — I've met enough girls to know. I don't feel 22. I feel like 27, 28," she said. "Everyone experiments. It's part of growing up. I love a soul, not a gender."
The interview also touches on Turner's tight friendship with co-star Maisie Williams, with whom she shares the cover, and how Turner felt a little pang of jealousy when she realized that Sansa Stark wasn't out in Westeros fighting with swords. "She got to do all these sword fights and be the badass," she laments.
Turner's attitude shifted as Sansa found her own strength, though, and she feels a close connection to the character. The 23-year-old explained that during the lead up to the final season of the show, she'd lay in bed and cry as she identified with Sansa's less-than-ideal situation. But now that the character's forging her own path, Turner's happy to be going along for the ride.
"I'm happy she's only just coming into her power now," she said.
