Fame forced me to grow up, says Sophie Turner

Los Angeles, May 28 (IANS) Actress Sophie Turner says fame has forced her to “grow up faster”.


“I definitely felt I had to grow up faster than I would have done. I’m very driven in terms of work, but I’m almost more playful and silly than my friends. I cling onto childhood,” Turner, who rose to fame through her role of Sansa Stark in the popular series “Game of Thrones”, told InStyle magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“Having a cynical perspective is best; in this industry, there’s just a lot of rejection. We all have that mentality, where we know we’re expendable. We all just thought, this is a job. Try not to get fired,” she added.

The 20-year-old feels “almost embarrassed” about being famous as she feels people “look down” on her because she’s known all over the world.

“I feel almost embarrassed by being in the public eye sometimes. I almost get the feeling that people look down on me because of it. If you’re on a night out, they will definitely tease you for it,” she said.

Caroline Flack quits drinking

Los Angeles, May 28 (IANS) TV personality Caroline Flack has quit drinking in order to live a better life.

Flack embarked on a 12-week no-sugar and no-alcohol detox plan after getting into a “rut” where a daily tipple became a routine and she is now feeling “really good” after making the changes, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“I think I got myself into a rut, where I was using booze as a treat. You know, I’d be like, ‘I’ve had a stressful day, I’ll have a glass of wine.’ I did that loads of times and, actually, it was more because I was in a rut than an actual sensible decision,” Flack told heat magazine.

“So, I’ve gone a bit yoga-y and got into that side of things and it’s really good,” she added.

The 36-year-old star thinks she is now a much “nicer” person for making the lifestyle changes.

“I’ve suddenly got loads of time on my hands as I wake up really early and don’t feel hungover. I’m like, ‘Why didn’t I do this sooner?’ And I’m always in a better mood. I’m nicer,” she said.
