Stars — they really are just like us.

Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner has cleared up speculation over paparazzi photos that showed her looking visibly upset and teary during a stroll with fiancé Joe Jonas. The couple were photographed walking around New York City on Wednesday, and Turner’s tearful appearance set off rumors.
