BarcelonaIt was already known that Sophie Turner had experienced a complicated period after the end of her relationship with Joe Jonas and the subsequent divorce with two daughters in charge. But until the publication of the interview with Vogue As of this Wednesday, it was not known what the magnitude of the tragedy was, at least with his version of the events. The public ridicule for being a "bad mother" and the story promoted by the media and networks about her predilection for nightlife, which left the care of her daughters and time with her partner, Joe Jonas, in the background - apparently , a family man – has caused him anxiety problems and periods of depression, as he explained in the British magazine.

"They were the worst days of my life," Turner says sincerely. When Joe Jonas, a member of the band Jonas Brothers, and the actress from thunder game Divorce proceedings began, Turner was filming the film Juan. "I remember I was on the set, I had a contract to stay for two more weeks, I couldn't leave. My daughters were in the United States and I couldn't see them because I had to finish Juan. That's when all these articles started coming out...", says Turner, 28. The pieces to which the British actress refers are the news published by the American media - with a misogynistic tone about the expectations of the role as mother–, with headlines such as "Behind the icon Sophie Turner, the life of the so-called "party girl"" or "Sophie Turner claims she is a bad mother while revealing the truth about "abandoning" her children from Joe Jonas", among others.

"It hurt me because I really torture myself for every decision I make. When you're a mother, the guilt is totally real. I kept telling myself, 'None of that is true. You're a good mother and you've never been a party animal.'" , says Turner. At least during that time it felt like the filming companions of Juan They gave him "a lot of support", including his friends and family.

Contrary to what happens to some mothers, the British woman explains in the interview that "having children was the best decision" for her relationship with her body. "Being young, and especially growing up in the spotlight, makes you judge yourself a lot," Turner says. It is for this reason that motherhood made her realize "how incredible" the human body is and the importance of taking care of the physical and mental health of both herself and her daughters, even if that means disconnecting from social networks, as she recognizes. which he did at different times during the divorce.
