After quietly dating for some time, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner got engaged last year but as it turns out — their relationship may never have happened if it wasn’t for Hailee Steinfeld. Well, that’s her opinion at least. The Edge of Seventeen star likes to give herself credit for setting up the lovebirds and in a recent episode of Smallzy’s Surgery Podcast, she explained why.
As many know, Hailee goes way back with Jophie. Aside from releasing a single with DNCE back in 2015 called “Rock Bottom” she also went on to star in a movie with the Game of Thrones startlet called Barely Lethal — that none other than Dove Cameron starred in too! Their friendship goes so far back, that they used to share tons of selfies together just casually looking like besties.
Back to the interview, the topic of Joe and Sophie came up when she revealed that she’d recently just seen them after the engagement news dropped. Hailee said, “I actually just saw them both for the first time since they got engaged. And yeah, I'm like freaking out about it!”
Then when it came to dishing about setting Jophie up, the actress revealed that it all came down to Sophie wanted to know if Joe was single. She explained, “I mean, I will say, I did get that text from Sophie being like, 'So tell me about Joe,' and I was like, 'Go for it.”
There you have it. If it wasn’t for Hailee, a romance between Joe and Sophie may never have blossomed and a wedding might not have been on the horizon for the couple. We have a feeling that this means the “Let Me Go” songstress pretty much guaranteed herself a spot in the wedding party as one of Sophie’s bridesmaids, alongside Maisie Williams who already got the job.
