Sophie Turner, queen of the North and queen of the Juuls, is now a very happy, taken woman. But three years ago, she found herself on the proverbial #2 Yemen Road, Yemen, in a quest to become the actual Miss Chanandler Bong: In a tweet, she excitedly mused about how Friends’ Matthew Perry was “rehearsing his play right next to my home,” although the extent of her horny elation wasn’t known until now. Because in a new interview with Twitter, Turner revealed she tried to flirt with Perry with the help of some nicotine pals. “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 recalled. “And I bought a lighter from Budgens so that I could walk up to him and offer to light his cigarette.”
The only problem was, when Turner finally mustered up the courage to walk up to Perry, he was already puffing on a lit cigarette. “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 added, “but he didn’t.” Well, his loss is Joe Jonas’s gain, and northern Westeros’s, too.
