Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner on Being Told to Lose Weight for Roles: 'It's So F--ked Up'

Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner on Being Told to Lose Weight for Roles: 'It's So F--ked Up'

Sophie Turner looks stunning on the first-ever digital cover of Porter‘s Fall 2017 issue.

Here’s what the 21-year-old Game of Thrones actress had to share with the mag:

On her hesitancy to adapt to her fame: “It was so gradual that I still treated my life and my social media like I wasn’t in the public eye. I was a 15-year-old girl writing rash political stuff that would get a negative reaction and my team would tell me to take it down. Now I am learning to keep my mouth shut.”

On being told to lose weight: “There are often times when I have done jobs and they’ve told me that I have to lose weight, even when it has nothing to do with the character. It is so f–ked up.”

On eventually saying goodbye to Game of Thrones: “It’s like losing my safety net. I’m so sad to leave Sansa, but I’m also excited for a new chapter in my career. It feels like I’m shedding a skin and there is a certain weightlessness to that.”

For more from Sophie, pick up the latest issue of Porter on newsstands Friday (August 4), or check out the digital copy on iTunes.

    Yet it’s clear she did. I get it, it’s her job to look the part or whatever, but if you are doing it and you lose the weight for the role, don’t complain about it afterwards. Seems hypocritical.

    I don’t think she lost weight because of a role. It seems to me that she started dating someone ( Joe Jonas ) who is into doing fitness activity and as a natural progression of the relationship she started being more regular at the gym because of it. Couples tend to do that, it was after that she lost some weight ( not too much ) but because she is tall any weight she loses the difference ( especially in the face and legs ) is more clear.
