Justin Bieber is a Canadian pop star who burst into the music world at a young, and became a global sensation. He was a heartthrob to many teenagers. Sophie Turner is one of many who were his fans. She was so enamored that she compared him with Joffrey Baratheon from the Game of Thrones universe.
The British actress is best known for her portrayal of Sansa Stark in the critically acclaimed television series ‘Game of Thrones’. She was 13 when she got the role and was obsessed with Yummy singer during her teenage years. Why did she compare the GoT antagonist to him? Scroll down to learn.
Justin Bieber was involved in a number of activities that led to controversy during his teenage years. Turner probably made a comparison by pointing out the similarities between Joffrey Baratheon and Justin Bieber’s youthful arrogance, as well as their similar appearance.
Sophie Turner stated in a conversation with Vanity Fair that “Maybe it was when I first started the show. I was just 13 and I read OK. 12 times a week, and I was all ‘Ooh, Justin Bieber’ – who is the Joffrey Baratheon of our time.” Turner’s comparison is understandable, given the similarity in appearance and features between the character and the singer.
Turner appeared in 2018 on The Late Late Show With James Corden, where she recalled her first encounter with Bieber. “I met him once in Miami. We were in this home, and as I walked upstairs, I was told Justin was there. So I go up there, and he’s sat there, shirtless, in a dark room, getting a head massage, and I was like, ‘Oh my god! This is amazing. So I was like, ‘Hi, nice to meet you, Sophie,’ tried to play it cool, ran into the closet, and cried for like five minutes.”
Sophie Turner, Joe Jonas’ ex-husband was also present when Justin Bieber introduced her. During her introduction, the actress used her hands and tongue in an awkward and unusual way, creating a memorable experience for her.
