Sophie Turner Reveals She Once Tried To Date Matthew Perry

It didn’t quite go to plan, though…

Sophie Turner is now well and truly loved up with her husband Joe Jonas, but the 23-year-old once tried to score herself a date with Friends legend, Matthew Perry.

 In a new video from Twitter Movies, Sophie revealed that after spotting the actor near where she lived rehearsing for a play, she came up with the ultimate plan to score a date with him – but it completely failed.

She wrote a tweet at the time in 2016, saying: “Holy balls. Chanandler Bong himself is rehearsing his play right next to my home.”

When asked to explain the story behind that tweet, Sophie told the camera:

“I would walk around the corner every day to go to my local Budgens, which is a great little supermarket. I would walk around the corner, and I would see Matthew Perry outside smoking a cigarette. I bought a lighter from Budgens so I could walk up to him and offer to light his cigarette, and it was already lit, so that was just embarrassing,”

“But yeah, he was there, and I thought he might see this tweet and then, I don’t know, and ask me on a date or something, but he didn’t.”

Not going to lie, if I saw Matthew Perry walking around near where I lived I’d 100% try for a date too. I could always ask him to recreate the ‘once I was a wooden boy’ song from season one over and over again.
