Sophie Turner

In an interview with Dr. Phil on his podcast, the "Game of Thrones" star revealed that seeing negative comments on the social media regarding her on-screen character of Sansa Stark harmed her mental health. She said, "I would just believe it. 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." She also revealed, "I just would cry and cry and cry over just getting changed and putting on clothes and be like, 'I can't do this. I can't go outside. I have nothing that I want to do' ... I've suffered with my depression for five or six years now. The biggest challenge for me is getting out of bed and getting out of the house. Learning to love yourself is the biggest challenge."

After treatment through therapy sessions, she began feeling "much better." "I'm on medication and I love myself now, or more than I used to, I think," she said.
