Sophie Turner loves her fiance Joe Jonas but her career will always be the greatest thing in her life
Sophie Turner and Jonas brother, Joe Jonas, are engaged to be married and as much as Sophie says that the engagement is "lovely" she shared that she will always be driven by her career.
Turner spoke to Marie Claire and shared, "I’m still like, 'Holy sh*t! I’m engaged.' There’s this weird misconception that being married is the greatest thing that’ll ever happen to you," she told the magazine. "But I’ve always found that my career is something I work for, and when I achieve something, there’s a sense that this is the greatest thing I’ll do in my life."
She is really enjoying being engaged to Joe Jonas and has already picked her Game of Thrones co-star Maisie Williams to be her bridesmaid. However, she said that being engaged is not what she would consider being an achievement.
"It’s lovely to be engaged. Not like I achieved anything, but I found my person like I’d find a house that I love and want to stay in forever. There’s a sense of peace that comes with finding your person. But there’s a drive that comes with your career," the actress continued.
Recently, Turner has been very bold and outspoken on her social media platforms and has shown her support for the 'Time's Up' movement and #MeToo movement and the people who spoke up. She shared a post which read "YES. So very proud of these people. You will not be silenced. You are heard. And we believe you and stand with you."
She even shared that the movement has brought her a sense of comfort in knowing that she would also have a lot of support should she ever be a victim. "I’m so much more comfortable going into work knowing that there’s a group of people who will believe me if something does happen," she said.
