Sophie Turner breaks her silence on the agony of her divorce from Joe Jonas

Sophie Turner has revealed her struggle with depression and anxiety and opened up about her agony while her divorce proceedings from Joe Jonas were going on. The actress who played Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones has opened up in an emotional new interview with Vogue magazine, admitting that there were days when she “didn't know if she would make it” over the breakup.

The couple was married for four years and share two daughters: Willa, born in 2020; and D.J., born in 2022. When they announced their divorce in September 2023, a media storm surrounded the couple and now Turner has described those days as “the worst days of his life” and has spoken of his feelings of “guilt for mom”, because she believes that her children were collateral victims of that traumatic separation.

Regarding the days of disputes with the member of Jonas Brothers, he assures that they became a mountain and that “I was simply never strong enough to defend myself. And then finally, after two weeks of stalling, she reminded me that it was my children she was fighting for.” “She wouldn't do it for myself, but I found the strength for them,” she adds.

The actress has also addressed those days when, due to contract requirements, she had to stay longer on the set of a filming while Joe was with the children at home and rumors began to be published about their separation and images of Turner partying. along with his colleagues from the filming. “It hurt me because I really completely torture myself with every move I make as a mother; “Mom's guilt is very real,” Turner said of those low days.

During this interview with Vogue magazine, Sophie also admits that she has previously suffered from depression, anxiety and bulimia. “I'm not very good at processing my emotions. “I lock them up and then, in the years to come, they break out into some kind of depression or anxiety,” she said. She has also revealed that she had taken medication for her mental health problems in the past, but that she currently does not use them.

It seems that calm has come to Turner after the storm, as he now comments that he is “happier than ever in a long time.” "I'm starting over, rediscovering what I like to do, who I like to be with."

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas started dating in 2016 and he proposed to her a year later. The couple eloped to Las Vegas in 2019 to get married, and later that year over the summer they hosted a lavish wedding celebration in France.

It seems things went awry when they moved from Los Angeles to Miami in 2021, when Sophie said she felt like a “bird trapped in a gilded cage,” especially since she was completely separated from her friends. In the interview she also wanted to acknowledge her close friends, including Taylor Swift, for helping her get over her separation from Joe.
