Sophia Bush Says She ‘Didn’t Have a Whole Brain’ When She Married Chad Michael Murray


In an interview on Michael Rosenbaum’s podcast Inside of You, Sophia Bush opened up about why she’s over talking about her marriage to Chad Michael Murray in interviews. (The One Tree Hill costars tied the knot in 2005 and divorced in 2006.) 

“Oh, I’m not going to talk about him,” Bush told Rosenbaum. “I’m not allowed to because I’ve tried to poke fun at being a dumb kid, and whenever I’ve done that, it gets twisted into I’m talking shit about somebody who I don’t even know anymore, who’s clearly a grown-up.”

She continued, “I think you have to laugh at who you used to be. But when people ask me about history that involves someone else…it’s not worth my time. It’s not a place where I harbor ill will or anything.”

Bush says in her experience, talking about Murray in interviews has “never” come out right. “It never does,” she said. “And I’ve tried to like, you know, do the thing where when I get stuck live on the air—which has happened to me twice—getting asked about it where I give a little, like, jazz hands quip and move on. It just doesn’t work, so I’m not going to.”

The Chicago P.D star chalks up the marriage to just being “a very naïve 21-year-old kid. And that’s all there is to it.”

She added, “I think lots of people do stupid shit before their prefrontal cortexes are fully formed, and they’re not until they’re 26. So you do the math on my timeline. I literally didn’t have a whole brain.”

But Bush is now able to laugh about the whole thing. “I have humor and grace for being a kid and having the experience that I had,” she said.
