Sophie Turner has made fun of the Jonas Brothers and called their previously worn eternity rings 'laughably, toe-curlingly lame'.

The actor was one of the brothers' wives to take part in a grilling session on The Jonas Brothers Family Roast special, which aired on Netflix on Tuesday.

During the show The Game of Thrones star and wife of Grammy-nominated singer Joe Jonas had a few things to say about the purity rings that her husband and his brothers previously owned, which she highlighted were only meant to be worn if you're intending to avoid having sex before marriage.

‘Let’s talk about the purity rings,’ said the 25-year-old actor before she ripped into brothers, Kevin, 34, Joe, 32 and Nick, 28.

Turner continued: 'For those of you who don’t know purity rings are worn to demonstrate that you’re abstaining from sex before marriage, and the Jonas brothers, they had them all of them.

'I think we need to set the record straight here. No, the rings weren’t a good idea. Yes, as a gesture they’re laughably, toe-curlingly lame. But remember this was about more than a gesture. This was about faith. This was about principle. This was about taking a stand and setting an example.'

And what came next was even more hilarious.

‘Look, Joe Jonas wasn’t just sticking his fingers in some dumb metal rings. He was sticking his fingers in co-stars, actresses, and even a supermodel or two,’ she added, prompting her sister-in-law Priyanka Chopra to burst out laughing.

Turner also referred to the purity ring episode as being evocative of ‘a modern-day Cinderella’.

'Joe tried to find a match for his purity rings a few times, but finally, the finger fit me,' she joked. 'It was also like Cinderella because most of the girls he tried it with were under contract to Disney.'

Adding fuel to fire she noted: 'Joe, don't wait up — Pete Davidson slipped me his phone number.'

Turner, who met Jonas through mutual friends in 2016, got engaged a year later when he proposed with a pavé diamond double-band ring culminating in a pear-shaped sparkler, which cost a whooping £113,000 ($150,000) according to Brides.

The pair later thew two wedding ceremonies – a surprise one in Las Vegas before a formal reception in front of friends and family in the south of France weeks later.

Turner wasn’t the only one to throw shade during the first episode of the family roast show.

Chopra and Danielle Jonas, the wives of Nick and Kevin, respectively, had their own things to say. Chopra, who tied the knot with her husband in India in 2018, said she felt honoured to roast her husband and his brothers, whose names she hilariously pointed out she can’t ever seem to remember.

The actor went on to poke fun at her husband based on the fact that he’s the only brother without children. The former ELLE UK cover star joked per the Daily Mail: 'Nick and I are expecting … to get drunk tonight! And sleep in tomorrow.'

On the subject of the brothers' eternity rings, Nick previously told Page Six: ‘Once I got older, and I experienced love, and had sex, and defined my view of the world, and what faith and religion actually meant to me, I accepted that [the rings] were probably a fascinating story to people.’

'In the same way, the South Park episode [which ridiculed the rings] is incredibly entertaining. I accept that it made some people curious and laugh. It doesn’t define us now.'
