Sophie Turner may be "very happy" with boyfriend Joe Jonas, but that doesn't mean their relationship is without its downsides.
The Game of Thrones star openes up about her romance with the Jonas Brother in the new issue of Marie Claire, revealing that, at times, the media attention surrounding her relationship can be too much to handle.
"You do feel like you're living in a fishbowl," Turner shares. "It's frustrating [that] it's the most mundane things that make the news -- how boring!"
And though Turner and Jonas have been dating long enough to earn their own ship name, "Jophie," Turner still prefers another one: "Mophie," the fan name for her and Game of Thrones co-star Maisie Williams. "What's that thing they say? Relationships come and go but friendship is always there," she explains.
It's no surprise that Turner and Williams have become such good friends. The actresses have spent nearly half their lives playing Sansa and Arya Stark, respectively.
"[Game of Thrones] has been a huge chunk of my life," Turner admits."When it's done, it's going to feel like a death in the family. I just completely gave everything to [playing Sansa Stark], all of my emotions. I never used to cry when I was younger. Now I cry all the time -- I am an emotional human being."
"There was a period in my life when I was 14/15, and I was like, 'I want to be seen as a real actress -- I can't f**k around. This is my career,'" she says. "Now I'm like, 'Just enjoy it,' the painful part is finding another job. There's a certain sense when you're 15 and you're just kind of like, a pawn, and you'll say, 'Yeah, I will do what you want,' but now I'm like, 'You know, actually I don't like this.'"
Turner's X-Men co-star, Jennifer Lawrence, seems to have rubbed off on her.
"She would do a take and be like, 'Cut! That was such bad acting!'" Turner recalls. "Her being able to stop [the scene]; it was inspiring to see someone so in control."
