‘Game of Thrones’ Actress: Justin Bieber Is The ‘Joffrey’ Of Our Time

Game of Thrones Actress: Bieber Is

Justin Bieber has no doubt been called many things in light of his much talked about antics and questionable behavior, but “Game of Thrones” actress Sophie Turner has thrown a new comparison into the mix.

In an interview with the Sunday Times, Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in the HBO series, likened the Canadian pop star to the unruly king of Westeros while discussing what she was like when she first joined the show.

“I was only 13, I was one of those girls that read OK! 12 times a week, and I was all ‘Ooh, Justin Bieber’— who is the Joffrey Baratheon of our time,” she said.

Tuner might be onto something, seeing as there is already a Tumblr devoted to the “Joffrey Bieber” movement, complete with photoshopped images of Bieber’s head on the king’s body.

The fourth season of “Game of Thrones” premieres Sunday, April 6.

  1. I can understand what Ms Turner is getting at, despite a somewhat poor choice of words. Not unlike Joffrey, people fell in love with Bieber due to completely superficial reasons; his looks, his voice, etc. But the more we uncover about him and his life behind closed doors, we see something twisted, cruel and a little frightening under the pretty exterior.

  2. “Joffrey Baratheon of our time”… Except Joffrey Baratheon is a character in a fictional universe, and therefore not of “our time” as he never really existed… in any time. You can’t say someone is the “so-and-so of our time” if they have never existed in any time.

    And yes, I realize George RR Martin based it loosely on the War of the Roses.

  3. What?!? Pretty sure Bieber has other ways of enjoying a woman’s company other than stringing her up and shooting her with a crossbow. Actually, now that I think about it, he probably thinks girls get shot with crossbows for a reason.

    We can only hope that they share the same deserved fate… I’m coming for the throne fiends!!

  5. Jerry says:

    Hey don’t insult Joffrey! Beiber is more douchier than him.

  6. Vang Biebs says:

    you are fuckingg idiots :P

  7. Ron Rosario says:

    Justin Bieber. Joffrey Barratheon. Initials: J.B. Think about it. Sophie Turner’s not completely wrong.

  8. Nietzsche says:

    He’s the Vanilla Ice of our time.

  9. Paul says:

    Nah, he could never be a king! He makes a great punk though!

  10. Lynda Day says:

    The scary thing is, Bieber will probably hear it and be all, “Oh wow, they think I’m a King! Yeah, I AM pretty awesome…” and totally not get it.
