Sophie Turner wasn’t a Joe Jonas or Jonas Brothers enthusiast when she was younger.

In fact, she was actually a hater. “My friends and I were not Jonas Brothers fans,” the actress recently told Elle. “There was this band in the UK called Busted. They had a hit called ‘Year 3000.' It was amazing, and we were huge Busted fans. Then the Jonas Brothers covered the song and made it massive. And Busted broke up. We thought it was all the Jonas Brothers' fault. So, we hated them.”

She even had an aversion to the group when she went on a date with the middle Jonas brother. “I expected him to show up with security and everything,” she remembered. “I thought he would be such a dick.” Turner brought some of her guy friends, saying “in the back of my mind I was worried he could be a catfish.”

To her amazement, the singer was able to keep up with her and her friends. “The best thing was that he didn't bring security. He brought a friend and they drank just as hard as the rest of us,” she said. “I remember us two spending only a couple of minutes on the dance floor, and then we found a space in the far corner and we just talked. We talked for hours, and hours, and hours. And I wasn't bored. It wasn't contrived, it wasn't small talk—it was just so easy. Soon, we were inseparable. And then I went on tour with him.”

Still, Turner thought Jonas was out of her league. “With Joe, I always felt like I was the one who was punching, like, way above my league. And I still feel like that.” She continued, “He's so handsome, talented, funny, charismatic. I'm really lucky to be with him and have someone like him want to be around me and spend time with me.”

The couple spontaneously married last May in Las Vegas, and then had a more extravagant wedding in France the next month. Turner and Jonas are now expecting their first child together.

During the conversation, she also touched on her relationship with her sister-in-laws, Priyanka Chopra and Danielle Jonas: “It's also nice to have built-in girlfriends who are actually really cool, who I can hang out with and we can really talk to each other about, like, how crazy the boys' lives are,” Turner said. “We can relate on so many different levels. It's like, thank God, because you never know [about your in-laws].”
