Speaking for what could be the first time about her relationship, Sophie Turner discussed what attracted her to Joe Jonas, and it’s actually super real.

Sitting down with InStyle, the Game of Thrones star admitted that, when it comes to her love life, she prefers to keep things private. But Sophie did reveal why, in part, she found it so easy to begin a relationship with the singer.

Of course, Joe and Sophie have been dating for a while now, with the pair linked as far back as last year. They have since (sort of) made their relationship Insta official and have been spotted adorably holding hands coming in and out of the airport.

Now, the GoT actress has explained to InStyle that part of why she feels like her relationship with Joe works is because they both understand what it’s like being in the spotlight.

“I found it easier to date someone who understands the industry or is in that world,” she said.

“You realize that you’re not going to see each other all the time. And you don’t feel like a jerk when you’re like, ‘My publicist says I can’t do this … ’”

Tbh, we totally get this. Their public and private lives must be really tricky to navigate, and it must be easier when someone understands the nature of fame.

In the same interview, Sophie also spoke about her friendship with fellow Game of Thrones star, Maisie Williams.

“To have someone who understands what you’re going through, who’s the same age, who came from pretty much the same background—that is so rare,” she said about her BFF. “And we’ve had the same struggles in terms of dealing with body image and puberty and growing up in the public eye. But I found my strength in her, and I think she found her strength in me.”

Wow, what a truly amazing friendship.

Bæ.
