The 'Game of Thrones' star says it is "f***ed up" that she has been told to ditch the pounds even when her role didn't require it.

She said: "There are often times when I have done jobs and they've told me that I have to lose weight, even when it has nothing to do with the character. It is so f***ed up.'"

And growing up in the spotlight was tough for the 21-year-old actress because she had to change her approach to social media.

She added to Porter magazine: "It was so gradual that I still treated my life and my social media like I wasn't in the public eye. I was a 15-year-old girl writing rash political stuff that would get a negative reaction and my team would tell me to take it down. Now I am learning to keep my mouth shut."

Meanwhile, Sophie previously admitted it was "tricky" to grow up in the spotlight.

She said: "That's definitely been tricky to deal with -- you're growing up, and hormones and puberty and everything's kind of hitting you all at once."

And the actress feels fame has forced her to "grow up faster".

She explained: "I definitely felt I had to grow up faster than I would have done. I'm very driven in terms of work, but I'm almost more playful and silly than my friends. I cling onto childhood.

"Having a cynical perspective is best; in this industry, there's just a lot of rejection. We all have that mentality, where we know we're expendable. We all just thought, this is a job. Try not to get fired."
