Sophie Turner Reveals How She Once Tried to Get Matthew Perry to Ask Her Out
Sophie Turner may be a married woman now, but back in her single days the Game of Thrones star was trying to attract men in all the wrong ways. Last fall, she explained the mortifying way she introduced herself to Justin Bieber, and during a recent episode of Twitter's #BehindTheTweets the 23-year-old explained a tweet about Matthew Perry in hilarious detail.
"Holy balls. Chanandler Bong himself is rehearsing his play right next to my home," she wrote back in 2016, referring to Perry's Friends character, Chandler Bing.
"I would walk around the corner every day to go to my local Budgens, which is a great little supermarket. And I would walk around the corner every day and I would see Matthew Perry outside smoking a cigarette," Turner recalled. "And I bought a lighter from Budgens so that I could walk up to him and offer to light his cigarette. And it was already lit, so that was just embarrassing."
"But yeah, he was there and I thought he might see this tweet and then, I don't know, reach out to me and ask me on a date or something," she continued. "But he didn't."
Clearly everything worked out just fine for the actress, who eventually met, fell in love with, and married Joe Jonas; however, we have to admit "Sophie Bong" has a pretty nice ring to it.
