Sophie Turner recalls her awkward fangirl moment the first time she met Justin Bieber
'Game of Thrones' star Sophie Turner recalls her embarrassing and hilarious reaction the first time she met Justin Bieber
As strange as it sounds, even celebrities are starstruck when they bump into their favorite stars - something 'Game of Thrones' star Sophie Turner can definitely relate to. She recently opened up about the first time she met 'Baby' singer Justin Bieber.
While appearing on the 'Late Late Show with James Corden', she recalled her embarrassing experience meeting Biebs for the first time. Turner admitted that she has "always loved" Bieber and her mother had even made her a "life-size cardboard cutout" of the two of them together when she was 16-years-old. Referring to the gift, Sophie shared, "I cried. I fell up the stairs, and I cried".
When she finally got the chance to meet Bieber in person, she remembers being very excited. Turner first met Bieber while she was visiting a house in Miami with her current fiance Joe Jonas. The pair was asked whether they would like to take a tour of the home after Turner was made aware that Bieber was resting upstairs in the same house. She also spotted him sitting shirtless and receiving a head massage.
As much as she tried to play it cool and get introduced to him, she later "ran into the closet and cried for, like, five minutes". Once she had composed herself, she left the closet and overheard Bieber asking Joe about his new girlfriend. The former Jonas Brother star confirmed that he was seeing Sophie who then turned around to say hello to Bieber.
However, she ended up making a very bizarre face "and Joe has never let me live it down since," she said.
Turner guessed that Bieber would probably be quite used to awkward fan encounters and said, "It can't be the strangest thing that someone's done to him".
