Sophie Turner is crediting her new husband Joe Jonas with helping her through a difficult time in her life.

In a recent interview with the Sunday Times, the 23-year-old actress said that she was “going through this phase of being very mentally unwell” when she first met Jonas, 29.

And it just kind of took over my mind, it was all I would think about. Calorie counting, everything. Oh, I’ll just eat nuts today.”

If you haven’t already heard, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are engaged, and everyone is losing it. (That includes the pair's families, who are totally thrilled about the whole thing, according to social media.) Though the two have only been dating for a year, they seem super in love and so cute about it.

“My metabolism suddenly decided to fall to the depths of the ocean and I started to get spotty and gain weight, and all of this was happening to me on camera,” Turner said.

“Everyone needs a therapist, especially when people are constantly telling you you’re not good enough and you don’t look good enough,” she continued. “I think it’s necessary to have someone to talk to, and to help you through that.”

Turner, who wed Jonas in a surprise Las Vegas ceremony earlier this month, also recently talked to Dr. Phil McGraw about her history of depression and the body-shaming comments.

“You see 10 great comments and you ignore them, but one negative comment and it just like, throws you off,” she said in April. “People used to write, ‘Damn, Sansa gained 10 lbs.,’ or ‘Sansa needs to lose 10 lbs.’ It was just a lot of weight comments. Or I would have spotty skin because I was a teenager and that’s normal, but I used to get a lot of comments about my skin and my weight and how I wasn’t a good actress.”

Therapy has helped, Turner said in the interview, along with her new husband.

“I feel much better. I’ve been doing therapy at CAST centers, actually. I’m on medication,” she said. “I love myself now, or more than I used to, I think. I don’t think I loved myself at all. But I’m now with someone that makes me realize that I do have some redeeming qualities, I suppose. 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.”

The actress shared a similar sentiment in a March interview with Glamour U.K.

“A lot of [my happiness now] is to do with being with a person I’ve fallen in love with, who loves me more than he loves himself, and who wants to see me find my own happiness,” she said of Jonas.
