“Game of Thrones” Star, Sophie Turner Says Criticism Of Her Role As Sansa Stark On The Hit Series Led To Her Depression

Game of Thrones” star, Sophie Turner has revealed that criticism of her role as Sansa Stark on the HBO hit series was one of the reasons that led to her depression

In an interview with Dr. Phil on his podcast “Phil in the Blanks,” she said started to become depressed around age 17. “The biggest challenge is just for me getting out of bed and getting out of the house and learning to love yourself I think is the biggest challenge,” said the now 23-year-old.

She said she felt alone after her friends and brothers moved away for college, while she was working on “Game of Thrones” and living with her parents. Social media became a “catalyst” for her depression, she said. “It only started to kind of go downhill I think when I started to hit puberty, and really puberty, though, at like 17,” she said.

“My metabolism was like slowing down massively, and I was gaining weight. And then there was the social media scrutiny and everything, and that was when it kind of hit me.” Turner said, at the time, she was more sensitive about what people would say about her on social media.

She said she would read comments talking about her weight and skin as well as criticism about her acting. “I would just believe it,” she said. “I would just say, ‘Yeah, I am spotty. Yeah, I am fat. I am a bad actress.’ And I just believed it.” She said now she feels much better since seeking therapy and treatment.

“I love myself now, or more than I used to, I think. I don’t think I love myself at all, but I’m now with someone that makes me realize, you know, that I do have some redeeming qualities I suppose,” she said, referencing her fiancé Joe Jonas. “When someone tells you they love you every day, it makes you really think about why that is, and I think it makes you love yourself a little bit more, so, yeah, I love myself.”

Few days past when Child Rights International (CRI) has petitioned the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service over socialite, Akuapem Poloo’s raw photo with her son.

Akuapem Poloo, in the early hours of June 30, 2020, set social media buzzing with a photo she posted to mark her son’s 7th birthday.

Her decision to post such a photo, according to her, was to commemorate the day she was naked in the labor ward as she delivered her son.

Well, Rosemond Brown as widely known, is still very much in trouble but she could actually care less about it.

She is still the very loudmouth person she has always been but this time around, we are not even going to fault her for what she did.

She shared a picture of herself and one male user decided to act all foolish and offensive in the comment box.

He asked Poloo how much she would charge to sleep with his dog for a night, literally saying the mother of one sleeps with dogs for money.

Read what ensued between them below.

American presidential aspirant and Rapper, Kanye West, has made a very controversial claim over the COVID-19 vaccine as he reveals it is a mark of the beast.

Speaking to Forbes in an exclusive interview, Kanye West opened up on how he recovered after testing positive for Coronavirus in February 2020.

He also condemned the COVID-19 vaccine as he alleged that it is a chip that is mandated to prevent Christians to make it to heaven.

Sharing his experience, the billionaire Hip Hop star said; “Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it.

“I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!”.

He added saying; “God just gave me the clarity and said it’s time. “You know I was out there, ended up in the hospital, people were calling me crazy. I’m not crazy,”.

“Between all of the influences and the positions that we can be put in as musicians… It can drive you crazy, through all of that I was looking crazy because it wasn’t the time. Now it’s time. And we’re not going crazy, we’re going Yeezy, it’s a whole ‘notha level now. N-O-T-H-A.”

He then revealed he suspects COVID-19 vaccine to be “the mark of the beast”.

“It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed,”. “So when they say the way we’re going to fix COVID with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious. That’s the mark of the beast. They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven.”
