Now that's true love. 

* This article discusses eating disorders and depression.* 

Sophie Turner credits JoBro hubby Joe Jonas with saving her life. 

In an interview with The Sunday Times, the Game Of Thrones actress said that when she met Jonas in 2016 she was "going through this phase of being very mentally unwell.”

Turner struggled with growing up in the public eye.

Cast as Sansa Stark on Game Of Thrones at age 13, she struggled with her body image and felt "desperately unhappy", even experiencing suicidal thoughts.  

"Suddenly, everyone's metabolism slows down at 17, 18 and then that's documented," she told the publication. “My skin and everything. People commenting on it.”

"I was too aware of my body at a young age. And it just kind of took over my mind, it was all I would think about. Calorie counting, everything”

Turner says that she didn’t have her period for a year as a result of extreme calorie counting.  

“That's when I decided to have therapy,” she told The Sunday Times.  

Turner credits Jonas’  love and support as the first step to accepting her own body when they met in 2016.

“He was like, ‘I can’t be with you until you love yourself, I can’t see you love me more than you love yourself.’ That was something, him doing that. I think he kind of saved my life, in a way.” 

The pair went public in January 2017, were engaged nine months later and married in a surprise Vegas wedding earlier this month.
