You’ve got to know everything about her but what is the reason for Sophie Turner Weight Loss?
Read on to know….
Turner suddenly started to get spotty and gain weight. This is exactly why people were telling her to lose weight. On screen ‘Game of Thrones’ star Sophie Turner (aka, Sansa) has been through a lot over the years. And, as it turns out, Turner went through some not-so-great moments on setting herself.
Though, Sophie’s killing it as Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones, she didn’t always feel like the lady of Winterfell. In a recent interview with Marie Claire Australia, Turner disclosed that she’s struggling with mental health while filming Game of Thrones. This was just because she had pressure to lose weight.
“I have experienced mental illness firsthand and I’ve seen what it can do to the people around (the sufferers) as well,” she said. My metabolism suddenly decided to fall to the depths of the ocean and I started to get spotty and gain weight, and all of this was happening to me on camera.
“Then came pressure from film and television studios to lose weight,” the magazine noted. Turner turned to a professional for help dealing with the pressure – specifically a therapist.
“Everyone needs a therapist, especially when people are repetitively telling you you’re not good enough and you don’t look good enough, “Sophie said. “ I think it’s necessary to have someone to talk to, and to help you through that.”
Interview with Marie Claire is not the first time when Sophie has candid about her mental health. In a recent interview with Dr. Phil for his podcast, Phil in the Blanks, about the impact of negative comments about her weight and appearance.
“People used to say, ‘Damn, Sansa gained 10lbs’ or ‘Damn, Sansa needs to lose 10lbs’ or Sansa got fat. It was just a lot of weight comments, or I would have spotty skin because I was a teenager – and that’s normal. And, I used to get a lot of comments about my skin and my weight and how I wasn’t a good actress,” she said.
Turner added that while filming, she would request that they “tighten my corset a lot” as she became “very, very self-conscious,” and said that the dive in her confidence affected her work.
“It would just affect me creatively, and I couldn’t be true to the character because I was so worried about Sophie,” Turner added.
The “Dark Phoneix” star said “I had no motivation to do anything or go out, “she said of the impact of the condition. “Even with my best friends, I wouldn’t want to see them… I would cry and cry and cry. Just having to change and put on clothes, I said, I can’t do this. I can’t go outside. I have nothing that I want to do.”
Thankfully she’s now in a better position, all thanks in her part to a relationship with her now husband Joe Jones.
“I feel much better. I’ve been doing therapy at CAST centers, actually. I’m on medication,” she said. “I love myself now, or more than I used to, I think. I don’t think I loved myself at all. But I’m now with someone that makes me realize that is do have something redeeming qualities, I suppose. When someone tells you they love you every day, it makes you really think about why that is and I think it makes you love yourself a bit more. So yeah, I love myself.”
