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.
