'Game of Thrones' Star Sophie Turner Reveals She Tried to Flirt With Matthew Perry

June 11, 2019

Sophie Turner didn’t always have her heart set on Joe Jonas. Before their Insta-famous Vegas wedding was even a passing thought, Turner gave flirting with Matthew Perry a shot.

According to the Turner Twitter archives, the “Game of Thrones” star has been a “Friends” fan from the beginning. She once tweeted about how shocked she was to find Perry rehearsing his play right next to her house. 

Adding to Turner’s charm is the cheeky misspelling of the “Friends” actor’s character name. In a video for Twitter where she was asked about the meaning behind this 2016 Twitter fossil, Turner revealed that it was far more than just excitement about her favorite “Friends” star.

“I would walk around the corner every day to go to my local Budgens, which is a great little supermarket, and I would walk around the corner every day and I would see Matthew Perry smoking a cigarette,” she reveals.

She goes on, “I bought a lighter from Budgens so that I could walk up to him and offer to light his cigarette.” 

The trick didn’t go as planned, as by the time Turner got to Perry, his cigarette was already lit. But it wasn’t just about being a star struck fan, she admits. “That was just embarrassing. I thought he might see this tweet and then, I don’t know, reach out to me and ask me on a date or something,” she said. 

If only we could tweet at young Turner and tell her everything would turn out fine for her love life – complete with Elvis impersonator!
