"We had a lot of mutual friends and they'd been trying to introduce us for a long time," Turner told Harper's Bazaar UK during a March 2019 interview. "We were following each other on Instagram and he direct messaged me one fine day, out of the blue."

After talking for a few weeks, they met up in real life in London.

"[We] were all in," Jonas told Dr. Phil in 2019. "We knew it was something unique."

Turner and Jonas meet up at a local bar in Camden, UK, and the actor brings some friends as backup in case he turns out to be a catfish.

"I expected him to show up with security and everything. I thought, 'He's gonna be such a dick,'" Turner told Elle magazine in a cover story released in March 2020.

The actor said she was skeptical that it was actually Jonas who messaged her in the first place. As a safety measure, she invited her friends to accompany her.

"I brought all my guy friends to come with me to meet him, because in the back of my mind I still worried that he could be a catfish — or I don't know what," she said. "I just wanted my guy friends with me. I had my rugby boys. I was safe."

Turner went on to say that she met Jonas at a "local shitty bar, dirty, with great music and people throwing up everywhere" and they chatted "for hours."

She added: "It wasn't small talk — it was just so easy. And soon we were, like, inseparable. I went on tour with him."

"You do feel like you're living in a fishbowl," Turner said when asked about dating Jonas. "It's frustrating [that] it's the most mundane things that make the news – how boring! There are really no other headlines?"

She also told Marie Claire that she and Jonas had met each other's parents.

"They met through mutual friends and have already done the 'meet the parents' — him joining the Turners in a north London pub; her on a Jonas' family skiing trip," Marie Claire reported.

Turner says the relationship is "very private," but that she's extremely happy.

"I'm in a relationship, but it's a very private relationship," she told the Times of London on July 1.

She also spoke generally about how her life had changed recently, likely in conjunction with her relationship to Jonas.

"I'm happier than I've been in a very long time," she told the publication. "I very much isolated myself for a while and forgot what was fun. Going out with friends, going out to eat, not really having a care. And people I've met recently in my life have drawn me out of that. It really helps you own those insecurities. The things I tortured myself about before, I can forget about."

"There's this weird misconception that being married is the greatest thing that'll ever happen to you," the actress told Marie Claire for the 2018 Fresh Faces issue. "But I've always found that my career is something I work for, and when I achieve something, there's a sense that this is the greatest thing I'll do in my life."

She elaborated, saying: "It's lovely to be engaged. Not like I achieved anything, but I found my person, like I'd find a house that I love and want to stay in forever. There's a sense of peace that comes with finding your person. But there's a drive that comes with your career."

"I think for the longest time I didn't have a real sense of myself," Turner, who was 13 when she auditioned for the role of Sansa on "GoT," said in a cover story for Glamour UK's spring/summer 2019 issue. "I had a bit of an identity crisis where I was playing all these people and I'd grown up faster than I probably should have done."

The actor went on to say that she credits "a lot" of her happiness to her relationship with Jonas, "who loves me more than he loves himself, and who wants to see me find my own happiness."

Turner added: "That was probably the biggest thing that pushed me to find who I am — and find my happiness in things other than acting."

The actor also says that being with Jonas has helped her overcome years of depression.

"I don't think I love myself at all, but I'm now with someone that makes me realize that I do have some redeeming qualities, I suppose," she said during an interview with Dr. Phil for his podcast called "Phil in the Blanks." "And when someone tells you they love you every day, it makes you really think about why that is and I think it makes you love yourself a bit more. So yeah, I love myself."

She added: "I feel safe around him. I won't be judged by him. He's seen the worst."

TMZ first broke the news of Jonas shopping for a divorce lawyer, reporting that the pair, who married in 2019 in dual ceremonies in Las Vegas and France, had been having "serious problems" for months.

People confirmed that Jonas retained a lawyer.

The same day that the shocking news was reported, Jonas was seen wearing his wedding ring during the Jonas Brothers' latest stop on their tour in Austin. His wedding band was also fully displayed in a black-and-white photo shared on Instagram on Monday.

Today.com obtained Jonas' petition for dissolution of marriage, filed in Miami, stating that "the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken."

The petition also stated that it's in the "best interests" of their two kids for Jonas and Turner to have "shared parental responsibility."

Jonas and Turner released a joint statement amid rampant speculation about the reason for their split.

"After four wonderful years of marriage we have mutually decided to amicably end our marriage," they said in statements posted on their Instagram accounts. "There are many speculative narratives as to why but, truly this is a united decision and we sincerely hope that everyone can respect our wishes for privacy for us and our children."

Turner couldn't speak about specifics regarding the marriage for legal reasons, but said that the time following the divorce news was "the worst few days of my life."

The actor recalled being on the set of her upcoming show "Joan" and not being able to get to her kids in the US because of her contractual obligations. Then, various articles, opinions, and narratives spread about her. While Jonas was photographed out and about with their kids, Turner was mom-shamed and accused of being a partier.

"It hurt because I really do completely torture myself over every move I make as a mother — mum guilt is so real! I just kept having to say to myself, 'None of this is true. You are a good mum and you've never been a partier,'" Turner said.

The "Game of Thrones" actor praised Taylor Swift for letting Turner stay at her New York home for free.

"I've never been more grateful to anyone than I am for her because she took my children and me, and provided us with a home and a safe space," she said. "She really has a heart of gold."

Since moving back to the UK and being closer to her friends and family, Turner said she's "the happiest I've been in a really long time."

"I'm starting over again, rediscovering what I like to do, who I like to be with," she said, describing her daughters as "total girlie girls and absolute rays of sunshine in my life."

Turner said that she's "unhappy" with how her divorce played out publicly, especially regarding custody of her kids, but said that she and Jonas are "doing the best" that they can.

"I'm confident that we can figure it out," she said. "Joe is a great father to our children and that's all that I can ask for."
