Sydney Sweeney is certainly one of the rising stars in Hollywood right now. This is simply because of her role as Cassie Howard in HBO’s teen drama series Euphoria. She also opened up about her perception after Euphoria.
Sweeney shot several nude scenes for the show and even called out fake reports when it came to her nude scenes. The 24-year-old is now everyone’s sweetheart and it is not hard to see why.
While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Sydney Sweeney stated that she feels she is being forced into the mold of sexualized characters after her work in Euphoria.
“Cassie is a sexualized character, and that became a mold that was then [forced] onto me as a human being instead of just Cassie. I was seeing people say, ‘Oh, she only got this because she showed her boobs.’ I had multiple shows and movies before I even did Euphoria. I look very different in everything I do because I want to become the character individually, and I don’t want people to associate Sydney Sweeney with a character — I want them to fully feel like they’re experiencing another world and another person.
People didn’t tie in that a couple months before, I did Handmaid’s Tale, or before that I was in Everything Sucks. And a month before that I did Sharp Objects and when people then started putting that together and then seeing White Lotus, I think that’s what kind of turned it for everyone. You look at some of these incredible male actors who get to play the coolest, most diverse characters, and people are just like, ‘Oh, cool.’ No one ever puts any type of stigma behind it.”
Sydney Sweeney certainly has a bright future ahead of her. After what took place in the second season of Euphoria, it is likely she will be featured a lot more in the third season.
