“Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner says Justin Bieber has a lot of in common with the show’s despised teenage king Joffrey Baratheon.

In an interview with London’s Sunday Times, Turner was asked how much she’s like her character Sansa, and shared, “I’ve been told by other cast members that I’m a lot like her. Maybe when I 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.”

Turner didn’t go into more detail about the comparison, but for those who don’t watch “Game of Thrones,” King Joffrey is hated by virtually ever other character on the series (save for his mother, who fears him), is spineless in battle and likes to torture young women.

However, the Internet likened Bieber to King Joffrey long before the actress, and there’s even a Tumblr account dedicated to “Joffrey Bieber.”

What do you think about Turner’s comparison?
