Sophie Turner Made Watching Every "Harry Potter" Movie a Relationship Requirement for Joe Jonas
The singer had never seen them all—and Turner had to change that.
Newlyweds Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are enjoying a quiet start to married life this as they shelter in place—but Joe still took some time to virtually appear on The Late Late Show with James Corden to reveal how their relationship truly came to be. According to Entertainment Weekly, the singer had to follow through with bingeing Sophie's favorite movies to win her over.
"Sophie, she said, 'Look, if we're going to get married'—and it was actually, 'If you're going to date me, you have to watch the Harry Potters,'" he told the host over Zoom. "Because every Christmas, for those of you that are watching that don't know, every Christmas in the United Kingdom they just stream and play Harry Potter, all of them. So I watched them all, I fell in love with it."
Since Joe made sure to follow through on his promise to watch the critically-acclaimed series, Sophie had to return the favor with one of his favorites, too. "I was like, 'Well, look, my rule is that you have to watch Lord of the Rings,'" he said. "So we've been binge-watching Lord of the Rings during this time and building the Legos that go with the movies, which is quite fun."
The couple may be home-bound and social gatherings may be restricted, but the two do have something to celebrate: Their one-year anniversary on May 1 (this date marks their Las Vegas ceremony). According to People, the duo enlisted an Elvis impersonator to officiate their first big day—and DJ Diplo even made the impromptu guest list to catch it all on camera. While the nuptials were supposed to be a private affair, Sophie looks back on the moment with joy. "It's tricky when people livestream it," she said of the service. "It would have been better if no one had known, but I actually think it was funny," she told Porter.
Although the couple had a formal ceremony with close family and friends on June 29, 2019, in Paris, France, their first wedding still holds a special place in their hearts. The duo technically needed to marry before their French wedding for legal reasons, but the two still cherished the first go-around with traditional, intimate vows. The pair told each other: "I promise you, I will never leave you. I will love and trust you, all the days of my life." They continued, "In sickness and in health, forever and ever," a source told People.
