Sophie Turner has revealed that having kids was the ‘best thing for her relationship with her body’ after her past eating disorder struggles with bulimia.

Game of Thrones actress, 28, shares two daughters – Willa, three, and Delphine, 18 months, – with her ex husband Joe Jonas filed for divorce from her last September after four years of marriage.

And she has now reflected on how pregnancy and raising a newborn was transformative for how she looked at and treated her body.

She told Vogue: ‘To be honest, having kids was the best thing for my relationship to my body. I remember after I had my baby, my therapist asked me how I felt in my body. 

‘And of course I was like, ‘Well, there’s milk leaking from my breasts and I’ve been bleeding for a month.’ Then she reminded me how amazing it is that our bodies can do this and how important it is to put all the nutrients in your body so that it can do that.

‘I mean, it sounds so simple, but I never thought of my body in that way before. Being a young girl, especially one growing up in the spotlight, you really judge yourself.’

She recalled how as a teenager growing up in the spotlight she was often the target of online trolls – who also slammed her for her weight even after she recovered from her bulimia. 

Sophie explained how when you’re bulimic your face tends to bloat so when she did get better in her early twenties and her face went back to normal people meanly commented on whether she had had  buccal fat removal or not. 

She now is able to better manage her eating disorder but admitted that during times of extreme stress, like her divorce, ‘the eating thing will always flare up’.  

But the star added: ‘But now I regulate it by sitting in the discomfort and just getting used to that feeling of being full. It’s all exposure therapy. I think life is exposure therapy.’ 

In 2022 Sophie – who recently blasted Ozempic weight loss adverts in the NYC subway station – revealed that she had a live-in therapist during the height of her eating disorder.

The actress admitted that the pressure from starring in the hit HBO series coupled with social media use ‘completely consumed’ her.

Sophie confessed that she has since distanced herself from Instagram as comments would make her feel ‘fat’ and ‘undesirable.’

Speaking in a candid interview with Elle magazine, Sophie revealed that she had a companion during her 2019 battle: ‘It’s a live-in therapist, who would ensure I wasn’t doing anything unhealthy with my eating habits.

‘One night, I was playing over and over in my mind a comment I’d seen on Instagram, I was like, ‘I’m so fat, I’m so undesirable,’ and spinning out.’

Sophie explained how she had noticed social media was making her ‘incredibly anxious’ and has since distanced herself from the apps.

She continued: ‘I wish I’d never got myself involved with it in the first place. I look at the comments on Instagram and think, ‘Oh, f**k. Everyone thinks this about me.’ It would completely consume me.’ 

She revealed how she was forced to turn to therapy when film and TV studios pressured her to lose weight amid her woes.  

Sophie made the admission during an interview with Marie Claire Australia, where she explained: ‘Everyone needs a therapist, especially when people are constantly telling you you’re not good enough and you don’t look good enough.

‘I think it’s necessary to have someone to talk to and to help you through that.’

Sophie however, did not specify which film or TV studios pressured her to lose weight.
