'She did not ask for this life, to be photographed. It's disgusting.'

Sophie Turner is one of the most talked-about women in the world, and despite Game of Thrones ending two years ago, she still never fails to make viral news.

Sophie is known to speak her mind, proving in the past that she's not afraid to take down Piers Morgan, body shamers, and sexist superhero films.

This week, it was the paparazzi, as Sophie spoke out against photographs of her daughter being taken and published without her consent.

Sophie and her husband Joe Jonas (what a power couple!) welcomed their daughter Willa ten months ago. And despite the private family keeping a low profile this year, the mother and daughter shot into the headlines this week as Sophie took on the paparazzi.

'It's creepy that grown old men taking pictures of a baby without their permission,' Sophie posted in an Instagram story that has since been deleted. 'I'm sickened, I'm disgusted and I'm respectfully asking everyone to stop following us around and stop trying to take pictures of our daughter and especially printing them.'

She later explained in a video: 'The reason that I am not posting pictures of my daughter and making sure that we can avoid paparazzi at all costs is because I explicitly do not want those photos out there...She did not ask for this life, to be photographed. It's disgusting.'
