Speaking of social media trolls, Sophie said, 'I would just believe it.

Dr. Phil commended her on opening up, saying that her frankness and openness will "save a thousand lives in America".

In a joint interview for "The Zach Sang Show", he added: "It starts to get very dark very fast with hard alcohol instead".

"I had no motivation to do anything or go out", she said of how her depression affected her, adding that she had become withdrawn. I would get [the costumers] to tighten my corset a lot.

She talks about how it first started affecting her when social media was on the rise and simultaneously her friends were going off to universities, making her feel lonely. "Learning to love yourself is the biggest challenge", she said. 'I would say, "Yeah, I am spotty".

Candid: "Maybe it's just a weird fascination I used to have, but yeah, I used to think about it". "I was like dropping things to my friends and they're like, 'No, don't go to the meeting, just stay, ' and I'm like, 'No, if someone gives me a reason enough to cancel, I'll cancel it, ' and he just didn't pick up the hint". "She says her insecurity led to symptoms of depression - and simple tasks like getting dressed would make her burst into tears", the outlet reported.

Turner told Dr. Phil that she's "really interested in mental health", particularly because she's "suffered from depression for about five or six years now".

"I mean, it's kind of a dream where, as close as we are as brothers, that our wives and fiance are so connected as well", Nick said.

The actress says she has sought treatment for depression, however, and credits her fiancé, actor and singer Joe Jonas, with helping her.

Turner also revealed her surprising other interests besides acting. The family's just getting bigger and bigger, and that's a handsome thing.

"I love myself now, or more than I used to", she said. "I'm on medication and I love myself now, or more than I used to, I think", she shared.

Telling all about the particular things that bothered her, she said: "People were like, "Damn Sansa gained 10 pounds" or "Sansa needs to loose 10 pounds", "Sansa's got fat".
