Game of Thrones and Dark Phoenix actress Sophie Turner has credited her new hubby Joe Jonas with helping her to break free of her mental health struggles.

In an interview with the Sunday Timesthe 23-year-old actress said she was “going through this phase of being very mentally unwell” when she met 29-year-old Joe Jonas.

Jonas is known for being one-third of the Jonas Brothers and lead singer of the band DNCE.  Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on the HBO series, spoke out about how hard it was to grow up in front of the world.

“Having your adolescence being displayed in public, that’s something I really wish hadn’t happened,” Turner said.

"Being in the age of social media when that’s happening, I think I would be a much saner person if I hadn’t been documented from 13- your most awkward, uncomfortable, unsure-of-yourself years.”

Over the entire decade of filming, Turner claims her body changed and she was subjected to cruel online remarks. She started "calorie counting" and missing periods, and eventually went to therapy.

“Suddenly, everyone’s metabolism slows down at 17, 18 and then that’s documented,” she told the outlet. “My skin and everything. People commenting on it. I was too aware of my body at a young age. And it just kind of took over my mind, it was all I would think about. Calorie counting, everything. Oh, I’ll just eat nuts today.”

The Dark Phoenix star continued to reference the dangers she was inflicting on her body, “I stopped having my period for a year- that’s when I decided to have therapy.”

When Turner was “going through this phase of being very mentally unwell,” she net Jonas at the age of 20, and he changed her life forever by encouraging her to love herself as much as she loved him.

“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,” she continued. “I think he kind of saved my life, in a way.”

The couple also broke up for 24 hours, which the actress recalled as "the worst day of our lives" to the Times. “For a second we both had cold feet, then 24 hours later we were both, like, ‘Never mind.’"

The GOT actress opened up about her struggles with mental health on Dr Phil McGraw's show, speaking out about her history of depression, and also got candid in a Marie Claire Australia interview last June.

“My metabolism suddenly decided to fall to the depths of the ocean and I started to get spotty and gain weight, and all of this was happening to me on camera,” Turner said.

“Everyone needs a therapist, especially when people are constantly telling you you’re not good enough and you don’t look good enough. I think it’s necessary to have someone to talk to, and to help you through that.”

Turner wed Jonas in a Las Vegas ceremony earlier in May after the Billboard Music Awards. Previously, she spoke about the comments she received about her weight while playing Sansa Stark as a teenager.

“You see 10 great comments and you ignore them, but one negative comment and it just like, throws you off. It was just a lot of weight comments. Or I would have spotty skin because I was a teenager and that’s normal, but I used to get a lot of comments about my skin and my weight and how I wasn’t a good actress.”

Jonas helped her realise that being in a relationship with someone functions better when you can love yourself as much as them.

“I feel much better. I’ve been doing therapy at CAST centres, actually. I’m on medication,” she said. “I love myself now, or more than I used to, I think. I don’t think I loved myself at all. But I’m now with someone that makes me realise that I do have some redeeming qualities, I suppose."

"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. So yeah, I love myself.” YES GURL.

Maisie Williams, AKA the legend that plays the single most badass woman on television, has opened up about her mental health in an interview with Fearne Cotton.

After emerging in the acting scene at an early age through her Game of Thrones role as Arya Stark, Williams has had to face a barrage of negative comments on social media since her fame originated.

Speaking to Cotton on her Happy Place podcast, the actress said that it became “impossible to turn a blind eye” to the ruthlessly mean comments. 

“It gets to a point where you're almost craving something negative so you can sit in a hole of sadness,” she added. “It's really bizarre the way that it starts to consume you."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Maisie Williams (@maisiewilliamsactress) on

Her co-star, Sophie Turner, recently made an appearance on the Dr Phil show to discuss her own struggles with depression, citing social media as the cause. Hateful comments about her weight, acting abilities and skin were posted online, when she was just a teenager.

Maisie explained that she finds herself experiencing life-altering feelings of self-hatred, which must be incredibly difficult to overcome. “It's something I'm really trying to break free from at the moment," she said.

"I went through a huge period of my life where I'd tell myself every day that I hated myself. It got to a point where I'd be in a conversation with my friends and my mind would running and running, and I'd be thinking about all the stupid things I've said in my life and it would just race and race.

"We'd be talking and I'd be like 'I hate myself'.”

Williams began attempting to discover why exactly these emotions were haunting her, and turned to her past for answers;

"So many of these problems are really linked to things in your past,” she explained, “as soon as you start digging and start asking yourself bigger questions than: Why do I hate myself? It's more: Why do you make yourself feel this way?"

The star confirmed that, at the moment, mental health is something she is “really working on”.

“One thing I learnt is that everyone is a little bit sad and it was really eye-opening to me to understand that I think," she continued. "The more we talk and the more we help one another, I think that’s really important.”

Well, we applaud Arya for opening up to the public. While it's not her responsibility, she's a huge role model for young women and we ADORE her.

As well as her stunning boyfriend, Reuben Selby, even though he said Jon Snow should have killed the Night King. IT WAS ARYA'S DESTINY, OKAY?

This post contains spoilers regarding episode four of Game of Thrones, season eight.

The latest episode of the beloved HBO show has angered fans and celebrities alike, due to the racial insensitivity and disrespectful use of sexual violence as a storyline.

Sansa Stark experienced a hugely controversial plot point in season five; the horrific rape at the hands of Ramsay Bolton. In episode four, the Hound has a conversation with the new Lady of Winterfell and uses some gross language.

"I heard you were broken in. Broken in rough," he says, while sitting in HER HOUSE. Sansa replies by saying, "Without Littlefinger and Ramsay and the rest, I would have stayed a little bird all my life", she says.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Sofi Turner Fan Page (@sansa__stark_) on

Sansa explains to the Hound, who harassed her as Joffrey's former minion, that she is no longer afraid of him as she’s seen "much worse" since.

The Hound tells Sansa that none of the bad things, i.e. Ramsay Bolton and Littlefinger, would have happened to her if she had left King's Landing with him.

The problematic language grates on many fans, as the word 'rape' is never uttered and the Hound essentially blames Sansa here for her own assault. She was a child when she met the Hound, why would she leave anywhere with him?

Jessica Chastain, who co-stars with Turner in the upcoming Dark Phoenix film, has joined the chorus of critics. Chastain is a staunch supporter of the Times Up movement for equal pay and representation in Hollywood, and #MeToo is close to her heart.

The actor tweeted her displeasure at the show’s choice to use assault as a narrative device;

“Rape is not a tool to make a character stronger,” she wrote. “A woman doesn’t need to be victimized in order to become a butterfly. The little bird was always a Phoenix. Her prevailing strength is solely because of her. And her alone.” YAS QUEEN.

Thank the Lord, Sansa escaped Ramsay alongside Reek/Theon Greyjoy and later gave him the gruesome death he deserved. I'm sure we all remember the hounds scene? Revenge is served COLD by the Starks.

After the backlash surrounding the rape scene in season five in 2016, writer-producer Bryan Cogman explained that the decision for Sansa to be raped on her wedding night by Ramsay Bolton was the only realistic narrative option. Rude?

He continued, "Yes, it would have been hugely satisfying for Sansa to have a shiv up her sleeve and gut Ramsay, but that’s not Sansa. We can’t all be Arya, most people in that situation, they have to play a longer game."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@thestuffguru) on

That entire interview seems like a massive cop-out to us. The show clearly still has zero grasp of how to discuss sexual assault, as the Hound so callously proved.

Sonia Saraiya​​​​​​, an experienced Vanity Fair critic has elaborated on why the scene didn’t work for her. She explains that Sansa’s reaction to the Hound’s comment rang false for the character.

“She just sits there and takes it,” she writes. “It feels like a repudiation of both of their character arcs- and, as I have said again and again this season, a missed opportunity for growth and connection.”

Game Of Thrones Got Spoilers GIF

Sansa has yet to have her hero moment and regain revenge, but we're guessing it may be her who gets to put the final nail in Cersei's coffin? Just a theory. 

The show also received criticism for its treatment of people-of-colour, specifically regarding Missandei's death. Ava DuVernay, the iconic black female filmmaker, called the show out on Twitter for it's brutal killing of their sole woman-of-colour.

The lack of diversity is pretty noticeable, and the series rarely involves female directors.

Just five percent of the 73 total episodes were directed by women, and it comes across in the show's writing habits.

Namely on sexuality and assault as plot tools; it's rare that the female characters escape rape. DB Weiss and David Benioff, Y'all need to step up thy game in future, or you'll lose female viewers.

Don't shut out female writers, we have a lot to offer and deserve a seat at the table.

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner blew up the internet a few days ago when they had a shotgun wedding in Vegas straight after the Billboard Music Awards.

Honestly, we were shook, but in a good way, like when your pet discovers a new cute pose and you need to show the world. Our hearts, they melted.

The 29-year-old Jonas Brother and member of DNCE tied the knot with the Game of Thrones star after getting Elvis to officiate their nuptials, and now Joe shared the first photo of his official wifey.

The photos were taken by Cynthia Parkhurst, and feature 23-year-old Turner standing with her back against a patterned tile wall (bathroom chic) and holding a red old-style telephone to her ear.

She's looking absolutely fierce, we wonder if she's muttering Game of Thrones spoilers down the phone to her BFFs?

Turner is wearing the same floral-metallic Louis Vuitton jumpsuit that she wore to the BBMAs, and her new husband rightfully captioned the shots; "Hot Damnnnnnnn" (Flame emoji). That's one lucky man.

The lad clearly adores his new bride, and the pair plan on having a bigger ceremony in France this summer. We are GAGGING to see photos of the GOT castmates at the event, but it better not be a Red Wedding.

The couple wed inside Chapel L'Amour, A Little White Wedding Chapel just after the awards show, where Sophie presented an award alongside Dark Phoenix co-star Tye Sheridan and Joe Jonas performed with his brothers.

A representative for Turner confirmed the news to PEOPLE, saying “We can confirm Sophie and Joe were married in Las Vegas last night.” YAY.

The pair apparently applied for a marriage licence earlier that same day in Clark County, Nevada.

Khalid was present at the ceremony, and Dan + Shay performed their hit tune, Speechless. Turner is allegedly changing her surname to Jonas, according to the marriage cert obtained by TMZ.

We love a good wedding, hopefully more images will emerge as the media furore dies down.

What happens in Vegas…becomes world news in a matter of hours. Especially when it comes to celebrity weddings, right?

Diplo gave the game away officially when he began posting footage from the improptu ceremony. In the DJ's Instagram Stories, the 23-year-old, who plays Sansa on GOT, is seen walking down the aisle.

She's got the full bridal ensemble on, and this longtime couple's nuptials seems VERY different to her HBO character's traumatic Game of Thrones weddings. Thank God.

It looks like an Elvis Presley impersonator is officiating the ceremony and country music pair Dan + Shay performed their hit, Speechless.

The husband and wife are now the final Jonas Brother couple to wed, after announcing their engagement in October 2017 following a year of dating.

The couple swapped ring pops instead of wedding bands, and this may just overshadow the GOT hype for this week.

Earlier that night, Nick, Kevin and Joe banded together for an epic performance of new single Sucker, and Sophie's sisters-in-law Priyanka Chopra and Danielle Jonas joined each other in the front row of the MGM Grand Arena.

During an interview with Marie Claire last year, Sophie spoke excitedly about her engagement to Joe, who has been supportive of her during her mental health journey;

"I'm still like, Holy sh*t! I'm engaged. There's this weird misconception that being married is the greatest thing that'll ever happen to you.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@florscents) on

"But I've always found that my career is something I work for, and when I achieve something, there's a sense that this is the greatest thing I'll do in my life," she continued.  

"It's lovely to be engaged. Not like I achieved anything, but I found my person, like I'd find a house that I love and want to stay in forever.

"There's a sense of peace that comes with finding your person. But there's a drive that comes with your career."

We're guessing the pair will throw a more official bash and wedding ceremony in the near future, because the bride's BFF and bridesmaid Maisie Williams wasn't at the gathering last night.

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are set to tie the knot later this summer after they got engaged in October 2017.

The lovebirds had been dating for a little under a year before Joe got down on one knee and although fans were over the moon for the pair, many admitted they were quite surprised by the news.

At the time of their engagement, the Game of Thrones star was only 21-years-old. The actress recently  opened up about getting engaged at such a young age in an interview with Rolling Stone.

Getting engaged and married in your early 20s was the norm back in the day, but these days, people are waiting longer to settle down.

This didn’t phase Sophie because she said that she doesn’t feel like a normal 22-year-old.

“I was fully preparing myself to be single for the rest of my life,” she admitted.

There’s no doubt the 23-year-old actress is head over heels in love with Joe. She recently gushed about her beau to Glamour magazine: “A lot of [my happiness now] is to do with being with a person I’ve fallen in love with, who loves me more than he loves himself, and who wants to see me find my own happiness.”

She added: “That was probably the biggest thing that pushed me to find who I am and find my happiness in things other than acting.”

Power to ya, Sophie.

It's official: the Jonas Brothers are BACK with their single Sucker, and it's 2008 again. We're sporting frizzy hair, kissing their posters on our walls goodnight and blaring Burnin' Up on repeat.

Their six-year-long hiatus really did break our hearts, but all is now rejuvenated. Joe, Kevin and Nick have reunited and it's clear by their new video that they're taken men. They've put rings on it, so to speak.

The partners of all three brothers feature in the track's new vid; Priyanka Chopra, Sophie Turner and Danielle Jonas, all looking flawless as they parade around a fancy mansion while their men serenade them.. 

The three brothers sing the lyrics to Sucker while gazing at their respective lovers, and it's intense; “I’m a sucker for all the subliminal things no one knows about you."

It's a quirky video filled with glamour and colour, and PDA of course. Priyanka and Nick literally can't keep their hands away from each other, and they're eye-f*cking WAY too much for us to feel comfortable.

Priyanka shared the video to her Instagram with the caption; “

"#SuckerVideo OUT NOW. This is the first time we’ve worked together but not for a moment did it feel like work. Such a fun family affair…#JonasBrothers and the #JSisters cheering each other on! Proud of you husband.”

The video looked like a lot of fun to film, with Sophie Turner sipping wine while soaking in a bathtub, gazing on as Joe looks at her with awe. We want that look too, we have to admit.

The costumes are pretty extravagant, and Nick made sure to brag about his new wifey on his Twitter account;

Needless to say, the internet has typically produced some hilarious memes as a result of the boujée video;

 "Me on my way to find a significant other after watching the Sucker video," one Twitter user wrote. We have to concur.

There was a special enjoyment of Nick Jonas in a bubble bath;

The 2000s references were piping hot, especially featuring Disney Channel alumni. Looks like we weren't the only ones obsessed with Camp Rock then…

 "Me tweeting how much “sucker” by Jonas Brothers slaps," another wrote. So they're fans then?

The memes of Sophie Turner licking her lips of course have done the rounds, and it's pretty gas.

The song is already racing up the iTunes charts, and the video is getting the attention it deserves. We're so glad the brothers are returning to fix 2019, we needed some serious nostalgia and the lads have delivered.

The news comes after they reactivated their accounts and set the images to black, which ALWAYS means that something major is about to drop:

Their social media has made their return imminent, after reactivating their Instagram and deleting every post on all channels, and uploading a black square for their profile picture. Very "It's 2017 and I'm going to cause a furore".

Fans are already going wild:

Back in October 2014, the JoBro's announced their break-up and devastated fans around the world, but their fans are LOSING IT at the prospect of their return:

Their fans would be in their 20s now, and chances are high that they've thrown dignity out the window:

The reactions are both hilarious and slightly concerning:

Nobody is staying calm…

We're thoroughly enjoying the worldwide panic online, and we desperately hope they announce a tour to go along with the new tunes.

We're ready for them to ruin our lives again, anytime. Can you believe the Jo-Bros are back before One Direction? It's scandalous… we love it. Long may it continue.

You're about to have serious FOMO, that's for sure. Why? Jay-Z and Beyoncé's annual Oscars after-party, that's why. Unforch, social media was banned at the bash so there ain't many public photos.

The bash is as exclusive and private as you may imagine, with stars such as Adele, Rihanna, Drake, Spike Lee, Adam Driver, Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Evans and Natalie Portman showing their faces.

Newly engaged Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry arrived as an item, as well as power couupe J-Lo and Alex Rodriguez and social media legends Chrissy Teigen and her husband John.

According to an insider at E! News; "The party was completely A-list. Guests began arriving around midnight and they didn't leave until about 5 a.m. and later. It was the party everyone wanted to be at it seems." 

No surprises there. Tell us more about Katy and Orlando, that's what we want to know;

"Katy and Orlando were the life of the party. Everyone was approaching them to say congrats and they were both 'cheers'-ing their drinks with anyone and everyone," the source shared.

"Katy looked amazing in a silver gown and Orlando was by her side the entire night. Jay-Z and Beyoncé seemed happy to see them and the four of them were talking for several moments."

 "The music was mainly hip-hop songs mixed with classics like Beyoncé's top hits, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande," the source shared.  YAS to Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored and 7 RIngs blaring. Armand de Brignac Brut Gold Champagne was apparently flowing too.

 "Everyone was on the dance floor dancing having a great time." Jamie Foxx was spotted getting the crowd hyped when he yelled the lyrics of rap songs in the background, and Kelly Rowland caught up with Queen Bey.

Beyoncé and her Destiny's Child sister hit the dance floor together and were having a great time. "They both were drinking and smiling. Beyoncé seemed relaxed like she felt she could let loose for a night."

Of course, we CANNOT forget about Bad Gal RiRi, the woman who can upstage literally anyone's outfit.

Rihanna showed up looking stunning in a leopard mini-dress, and had to be in the same room as Drake which must have been hella awkward. She probably curved so many former romantic prospects.

Us Weekly, wrote that the soirée went down at the Chateau Marmont garage, where guests were reportedly told to honour a no-phone policy. Daniel Humm and Eleven Madison Park did the lush catering.

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, Diddy, Serena Williams, Regina King, Michael B Jordan, Tiffany Haddish, Aziz Ansari, Oscar winner Olivia Colman and every other A-lister you can name were also there. Imagine being in that room…

RiRi left the party in slippers, because of course she did. A whole mood. In conclusion, everyone wanted to be there and no photos of Beyoncé's outfit have appeared, but you can bet your bottom dollar she stole the show.

Unless you've been living under a gigantic Game of Thrones rock, you know exactly who Kit Harington is. Many people know more about his most famous character, Jon Snow, than the actual man who portrays him.

Harington is the 32-year-old British hunk has portrayed the ridiculously attractive Lord Commander of the Night's Watch on HBO's iconic fantasy series for almost ten years now.

It's getting increasingly difficult to imagine him playing anyone other than Snow, guarding the Wall and taking down the dangerous White Walkers. Not to mention falling in love with powerful women like Ygritte and Daenerys Targaryen.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@jonsnowposts) on

Harington owes a lot to The Snow Show, including his wife. He fell in love on set with Rose Leslie, who played his on-screen lover Ygritte, a feisty wildling.

With the premiere of GOT's season eight fast approaching, Jon Snow's watch will soon end, but what's next for the actor?

As dismayed as we are at the prospect of losing Snow, Harington himself is ready to hang up the cloak; 

"I'd like to step away and enjoy the obscurity, cut my hair, make myself less recognisable as the character, and go do and some other things with a completely new look and tone," Harington told Entertainment Weekly.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@jonsnowposts) on

He added, "I can't go into my next role looking the same. This role was brilliant, but I'll need to get rid of Jon Snow."

Harington underwent several roles outside the world of Westeros, starring in Pompeii, Brimstone and The Death and Life of John F. Donovan between 2014 and 2018.

The actor doesn't currently have any roles lined up after GOT airs the final season from April, with six lengthier episodes. Kit admitted that filming the final season was intensely gruelling.

Despite the fewer episode count, it took almost a full year in Belfast to film the last season of the successful franchise, with every episode the length of one movie.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@gameofthronesnotofficial) on

It took 55 nights to film one Army of the Dead scene, so you'd 100 percent need a break after something like that.

"The last season of Thrones seemed to be designed to break us," he told GQ Australia. "Everyone was broken at the end. I don't know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so f*cking tiring."

Harington returned to his theatre roots last November, co-starring with Johnny Flynn in London's West End premiere of Sam Shepard's True West. 

The show will run until February, and tells the tale of two brothers who are trying to sell movie scripts to the same Hollywood producer.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@truewestlondon) on

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World have also enlisted Harington for his voice acting skills for the final part of the film trilogy. The GOT alumni voices Eret, who he also voiced in the 2014 sequel.

You definitely won't be seeing him in the Game of Thrones prequel, that's for sure. He shut that one down pretty quickly, telling the BBC;

"It was a huge emotional upheaval leaving that family. But would I want to go back and do more? Not on your life."

Darn it, we just can't get enough of Jon Snow. He may know nothing, but he's everything to us Game of Thrones fangirls, isn't he?

Is there any nostalgic band that isn't getting back together this year? From The Spice Girls and Westlife, to Avril Lavigne and Jojo dropping albums; we now have no idea what year it is.

Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes are somehow relevant again, and we're pure delighted that our pre-teen treasures are making a return.

News has just hit that The Jonas Brothers are making a comeback too, and we genuinely can't handle any more of this.

The band broke up back in 2013 citing "a deep rift within the band" and "creative differences", and the boys went their separate ways to pursue their own careers and love lives.

31-year-old Kevin randomly launched a business career after his E! Reality show Married To Jonas was cancelled, participating in The Celebrity Apprentice. 

Now he co-manages the JonasWerner development company, a social media influencer firm The Blu Market and Yood, the food app.

29-year-old Joe is now engaged to Game Of Thrones' Sophie Turner, and is the lead singer of funk-pop group DNCE, of Cake By The Ocean fame.

26-year-old Nick, the youngest JoBro, released two successful solo albums, starred in Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, and got married to Priyanka Chopra. Everyone fell in love with them as a couple.

It seems like Nick did the best out of the lot, we all had a bop to Chains, Close and Jealous. They were absolute CHOONS.

According to Us Weekly sources, the brothers will rise from the ashes like a beautiful phoenix as JONAS.

They've ditched their chastity belts, so they also have to ditch the 'Brothers' and 'The' in the name to prove their serious musician-status. Gas.

Their reunion will reportedly result in new music, their first since 2009's Lines, Vines and Trying Times, tour dates and even a documentary. The band's Christian image must still be garnering fans from somewhere…

Nick has been liking tweets about the reunion, and The FADER noticed that their Instagram account has been reactivatedJONAS have yet to make an official announcement, but we've got our eyes peeled.

Kevin told Us in 2018 that he and his brothers often play music together and this summer, Just Jared reported sightings of the trio working on a project.

Now is the time to follow the lads if Camp Rock changed your adolescence…and the music industry forever. They're giving twenty-somethings what we really want, and we love them for it.
