Talking about her struggles she continued, "I would say, 'Yeah, I am spotty. I am fat. I am a bad actress.' I would just believe it. I would get (the costume department) to tighten my corset a lot. I just got very, very self-conscious,". The biggest challenge the actress faced was the lack of motivation to get out of the bed and the house.

The Game of Thrones star is currently on medication and attends therapy and admitted that she feels much better now. "I'm on medication and I love myself now, or more than I used to, I think," she shared. Sophie can be currently seen in the eighth season of the HBO hit Game of Thrones. She has planned to take a break from acting after the end of the last season. She is engaged to Joe Jonas, who has also made a comeback with his band Jonas Brothers with Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas.
