She went on to clarify that her ex-husband Joe was not at fault in the situation. She said, “It was kind of this plus-one feeling. And that’s nothing to do with him – in no way did he make me feel that – it was just that the perception of us was as the groupies in the band.” Sophie, along with Priyanka and Danielle appeared in the music video of the Jonas Brother song Sucker.

The actress, in an interview with Vogue, recalled going through ‘mom guilt’ during the custody battle of her children in the ongoing divorce proceedings with husband Joe Jonas. She said, “I remember I was on set, I was contracted to be on set for another two weeks, so I couldn't leave. My kids were in the States and I couldn’t get to them because I had to finish Joan.”

In the same interview, the actress shared how she was initially hesitant to stand up for her rights. She said, “There were some days that I didn't know if I was going to make it. I would call my lawyer saying, 'I can't do this. I just can't.' I was just never strong enough to stand up for myself. And then, finally, after two weeks of me being in a rut, she reminded me that it was my children I was fighting for. Once anyone says to me, 'Do it for your kids,' I'm doing it. I wouldn't do it for myself, but I'll find the strength for them.”
