Marriage is all about compromises. For Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas, that was also true of dating. In an interview on Monday’s The Late Late Show With James Corden, the musician stopped by to discuss the one condition that the Game of Thrones star had before she would agree to date him.
Jonas explained that as they’ve been quarantined together, they’ve built plenty of Lego sets, including many from some of their favorite movie franchises.
“Sophie, she said, ‘Look, if we’re going to get married’ — and it was actually, ‘If you’re going to date me, you have to watch the Harry Potters.’ Because every Christmas, for those of you that are watching that don’t know, every Christmas in the U.K. they just stream and play Harry Potter, all of them. So I watched them all, I fell in love with it,” he related.
Jonas also said that, in order to make it a fair trade, she had to agree to watch the Lord of the Rings series with him. Now, he said that they’re watching the Lord of the Rings series and building the Lego sets to go with them. Although they build the sets together, Jonas said that his wife has more natural skill when it comes to this.
“I help by sorting the different pieces. So we’ve done three Lord of the Rings Legos, we’ve done Hogwarts, the castle, which is like 7,000 pieces, the Batmobile, and Stranger Things,” he told Corden.
Jonas also discussed the milestone anniversary that he and Turner have coming up. On May 1, the couple will mark their first year of marriage. The musician said that when he and Turner first started dating, they would celebrate their relationship quite frequently. While they were big on commemorating every milestone early on, they now appear to have chilled out quite a bit, he added. Even so, he said that he may try to recreate Las Vegas — where they were married — in their house to celebrate the occasion.
Two months after their legal ceremony in Vegas, Turner and Jonas got married again in a more traditional ceremony in France. In a previous interview on Conan (via YouTube), the actress suggested that she was actually very much enjoying spending her quarantine with her new husband. She said that Jonas was always the more extroverted member of their relationship and that spending all her time at home suited her fine. She also made fun of her husband for wearing jeans around the house, even though no one is going to see them.
