Sophie Turner was cast as Sansa Stark, a young noblewoman, in the HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones in August 2009. Despite being in the public eye for so long, Sophie is still nervous when a famous celebrity approaches her. Turner recently explained to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show why she turned down Kendall Jenner’s Met Gala after-party invitation.
Sophie Turner, unlike her husband Joe Jonas, isn’t always able to maintain her “cool” among certain celebrities. On May 6th, only days after the pair attended the star-studded Met Gala, the Staircase star appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. This is where she admitted that she turned down an after-party invitation from Kendall Jenner.
“[Kendall] was at the Met and I love the Kardashians. I think she’s so gorgeous in real life and I was so, like, struck by her beauty,” Sophie explained. “She invited me to…this low-key afterparty. And she went, ‘Do you want to come?'” And, in return, Sophie simply replied, “‘No. No. No, I don’t.'”
After declining the opportunity, the actress expressed her dissatisfaction with her split-second choice to skip partying with the Kardashians star. “And I’m like, ‘Why? Why do I do this to myself?'” Sophie commiserated before revealing what she did following the occurrence. “I just sat in bed and ate pasta and I was like, ‘Could be somewhere else right now.'”
When it comes to meeting other celebrities, Sophie stated that she’s simply naturally “really bad around” them, adding, “I can’t quite fathom [that] I’m actually invited to these things and I’m not a competition winner, you know?”
“Every celebrity I come into contact with, I act up or say something stupid. And recently, it’s been if a celebrity interacts with me, I immediately just shut them down and I’m like, ‘I don’t want anything to do with you.'”
That didn’t apply to her husband Joe. Sophie revealed that she knew he was someone special from the “first night” she met him. “We went out and we hung out at a bar with all my friends and all his friends and then they all came back to my apartment and we had drinks after,” she shared about their first date. “And I remember him leaving, and I just, like, weeped.”
The actress, who recently celebrated her third wedding anniversary with the Jonas Brothers musician and is expecting her second child with him, claimed she instantly began weeping to her brother, telling him, “I love this man so much!” “And I knew,” she concluded. “And that was it.”
Sophie’s situation is likely to be familiar to many people. It might be hard to say no to a Kardashian, but Sophie might have made the right decision for her lifestyle. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
