Though she has since moved on and is very happy with Jonas, Sophie Turner is the true MVP for attempting to win over Friends actor, Matthew Perry.

Joe wasn’t the first one to capture Sophie’s heart

Sophie Turner is the type of person many of us can’t help but relate to and her latest story just shows that she has had her own celebrity crushes in the past.

Recently, the actress did an interview where she explained the stories behind some of her early tweets.

The interview was titledĀ #BehindtheTweets, and though Sophie’s stories ranged from embarrassing to newfound fame, the best was one that had to do with Friends actor, Matthew Perry.

Back in 2016, Turner tweeted out, “Holy balls. Chanandler Bong himself is rehearsing his play right next to my home,” and of course, there was a pretty epic story behind this tweet.

During the interview, Sophie Turner revealed that she did everything in her power to get Matthew Perry to notice her, even if it was just a glimpse.

“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,” Turner explained.

Turner then revealed that she drew up the courage to try her hand at flirting with the actor.

In order to finally get Matthew Perry’s attention, the actress went out and bought “a lighter from Budgens so that I could walk up to him and offer to light his cigarette.”

Though that plan sounded good at first, it ended up not working out in her favor because the cigarette “was already lit, so, that was just embarrassing.”

Sophie also hoped that Perry would one day see her epic tweet and reach out to her for a date, but sadly he never did.

Sophie did what many of us wish we had the chance to do

If you think about, though Sophie Turner didn’t actually get a chance to make a move on Matthew Perry, her fans now have another reason to praise her.

For the past 25 years, many of us have had a deep love for Matthew Perry and his character on Friends.

Now that we know Sophie Turner is a fan of the show and was so close meeting a sitcom favorite, that alone just makes many of us respect her even more than we did.

Though the actress has found her happily ever after with Joe Jonas, who she married in Las Vegas back in May, she was so close to having an epic love story with the one and only “Chanandler Bong.”

After hearing this story, we can’t help but wonder if Joe Jonas is a little jealous that his wife got to see Matthew Perry on a daily basis because we are.
