Even though Sophie Turner is happily married to Joe Jonas, she's opening about the one who got away. Who might that be? Matthew Perry. Or, as Sophie would call him, Chanandler Bong himself.
Well, let's back up for a minute. Matthew Perry, of course, played Chandler Bing on Friends for 10 seasons. Being a big fan of the hit sitcom, Sophie was excited to learn the now 49-year-old actor was rehearsing for a new play near her home in England back in 2016. Sophie, who was 20 at the time, regaled Twitter Movies with the tale of her attempt to flirt with Matthew.
"I would walk around the corner every day to go to my local Budgens, which is a great little supermarket," Sophie says in the lol-worthy video. "And I would walk around the corner every day, and I would see Matthew Perry outside smoking a cigarette."
"I bought a lighter from Budgens so that I could walk up to him and offer to light his cigarette," she continued. "And it was already lit. So that was just embarrassing. I thought he might see this tweet and then, I don't know, reach out to me and ask me on a date or something. But he didn't."
While it didn't work out between Sophie and Chanandler Bong himself, Sophie seems like she's doing just fine.
