Name one person who did not fall for Chandler Bing from Friends. We all wanted to be his Monica. We wanted to be loved the way Chandler loved Monica. Sophie Turner was no different. The X Men Dark Phoenix actress and the Game of Thrones alum tied the knot with the Jonas Brothers band last month in Las Vegas. However, before she went on to become Mrs Jonas, Sophie tried to pick up Friends star Matthew Perry. But things did not go as planned. 

The actress revealed that she tried to make a move on Perry about three years ago, about 10 months before she met her now husband Joe. The actress revealed how she made a move on the actor and things turned awkward. The 23-year-old star made the revelation in a Twitter video. Us Weekly reported that Twitter released a video for the social media platform titled #BehindtheTweets where she revealed the story behind a particular tweet. 

Sophie posted a tweet three years ago which read: "Holy balls. Chanandler Bong himself is rehearsing his play right next to my home." The actress revealed that upon learning that the actor is in the same neighboorhood as her, she decided to try making a move on him. She ventured out with the simplest plan. It is no secret that Perry smokes. So Sophie decided to accidentally bump into Perry and offer to light up his cigarette.

“I would walk around the corner every day to go to my local Budgens, which is a great little supermarket, and I would walk around the corner every day and I would see Matthew Perry smoking a cigarette. And I bought a lighter from Budgens so that I could walk up to him and offer to light his cigarette," she recalled. But things did not work out in her favour. Perry already had a lit smoke. “And it was already lit, so, that was just embarrassing,” she confessed.

Sophie went on to reveal that she tweeted the above tweet hoping Perry would reach out to him. "I thought he might see this tweet and then, I don’t know, reach out to me, and ask me on a date or something, but he didn’t," she said. It's okay Sophie, we hope Perry reaches out to you after this. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates.
