Sophia Bush isn’t holding back any more after all these years!!
The former teen heartthrob, who starred on One Tree Hill through the end of the show’s run in 2012, revealed in an interview with Andy Cohen this morning that her marriage to her former costar on the hit WB show — Chad Michael Murray — was a HUGE mistake!!!
Bush and Murray were married for about five months way back in 2005 before separating; Sophia at first tried to get an annulment, but eventually settled for a divorce.
Now, thirteen years later, she comes clean about what the hell happened with that whirlwind disaster of a marriage, saying to Cohen on his Radio Andy show (below):
“How old was I? I don’t even know. It was like the second season. But everybody’s been 22 and stupid, you know? [Getting married] was not a thing I actually really wanted to do, but you know, it’s cool. Ladies have to learn how to take up space in the way that men are taught they are entitled to.”
So wait a minute… if she didn’t want to marry Murray — who was, remember, the biggest teen heartthrob in America for a while back then — why didn’t she just walk away?
Bush knew Cohen would ask that, and she had a damn good answer ready (below):
“Because how do you let everybody down, and how do you — what’s the fight? And when you have bosses telling you that you’re the only person who gets a person to work on time, and 200 people either get to see their kids at night or they don’t because our days start on time. Life is always loaded. What the public knows ever is never — it’s not the tip of the iceberg. [Fellow One Tree Hill costar] Hilarie [Burton] and I used to laugh, and we were like, ‘If we had a behind-the-scenes show, the drama would be so much fucking better than the drama that the writers write.'”
Eventually, though, even Bush tired of taking that walk down memory lane, saying after a while to Cohen that this was about it for her (below):
“Why do I wanna talk about this anymore? It’s like, and I get why you ask, but it’s like, people won’t let it go.”
What do y’all think about this, Perezcious readers?!
Who knew about all the behind-the-scenes drama going down!!
