Sophie Turner told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” why she recently declined a Met Gala after-party invitation from Kendall Jenner.
Sophie Turner, unlike her husband Joe Jonas, can’t always keep her “cool” with superstars!
The “Staircase” star, 26, visited “The Tonight Show” on May 6 and admitted to host Jimmy Fallon that she turned down an after-party invitation from Kendall Jenner, just days after the couple attended the star-studded Met Gala.
“[Kendall] was at the Met and I love the Kardashians. I think she’s so gorgeous in real life and I was so, like, struck by her beauty,” Turner explained. “She invited me to…this low-key afterparty. And she went, ‘Do you want to come?'”
And, in return, Turner simply replied, “‘No. No. No, I don’t
The actress expressed her disappointment with her split-second decision to pass up partying with the “Kardashians” star after rejecting the offer.
“And I’m like, ‘Why? Why do I do this to myself?'” Turner commiserated, before sharing what she really got up to after the event. “I just sat in bed and ate pasta and I was like, ‘Could be somewhere else right now.'”
When it comes to meeting other celebrities, Turner explained that she’s just naturally “really bad around” them, adding, “I can’t quite fathom [that] I’m actually invited to these things and I’m not a competition winner, you know?”
“Every celebrity I come into contact with, I act up or say something stupid,” she shared. “And recently, it’s been if a celebrity interacts with me, I immediately just shut them down and I’m like, ‘I don’t want anything to do with you.'”
That did not apply to one of her co-stars, her spouse. Turner stated that she realized he was someone special from the “first night” she met him.
“We went out and we hung out at a bar with all my friends and all his friends and then they all came back to my apartment and we had drinks after,” she shared about their first date. “And I remember him leaving, and I just, like, weeped.”
The actress, who recently celebrated her third wedding anniversary with the Jonas Brothers artist and is expecting her second child with him, said she instantly began crying to her brother, telling him, “I love this man so much!”
“And I knew,” she concluded. “And that was it.”
