Sophia has spoken out about LGBTQI issues and recently praised the queer storyline in the ABC show Barons. “You can’t know what you can’t see. ‘If you’re constantly watching heteronormative storylines, you can’t connect with, maybe a queer storyline that could help you understand who you are,” Sophia said.

Last year, Sophia is reported to have bought a two-stored penthouse in the Warehouse 5 complex in Waterloo. Despite being born in Australia’s second richest family, Sophia is unlikely to inherit her parents’ wealth. Andrew Forrest and his wife Nicola have said that their children – Grace, Sophia and Sydney – will not inherit the family’s estimated $25 billion fortune.
