Sydney Sweeney Says She Wasn’t Paid Enough to Take 6-Month Break From Acting

Sydney Sweeney opened up about her struggles as an actress in a recent interview. She has shared how she had panic attacks and also revealed that she hasn’t earned enough to take a break from acting.

In a new cover article for The Hollywood Reporter, Sydney Sweeney discusses her income. The Euphoria star, who is now filming Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff, Madame Web, says in her interview that she hasn’t yet made enough money to take a hiatus. “If I wanted to take a six-month break, I don’t have the income to cover that,” she revealed. “I don’t have someone supporting me.”

The actress added, “They don’t pay actors like they used to, and with streamers, you no longer get residuals. The established stars still get paid, but I have to give 5 per cent to my lawyer, 10 per cent to my agents, 3 per cent or something like that to my business manager. I have to pay my publicist every month and that’s more than my mortgage.”

Sweeney admits in the article to having panic attacks earlier this summer and being advised by her family to take two weeks off from her phone at her house in the Pacific Northwest. She describes her collapse as “losing my s.” The 24-year-old doesn’t stop there, unleashing more truth bombs about life within Hollywood’s supposedly glamorous profession. “It’s built to try to make you backstab people,” she explains.

Sydney said, “It’s insane. My agent is my best teammate, and I’ll have her forever.” However, she says, “I see how people are like, ‘We support each other’ and I’m like, ‘No. You f*** don’t.'” When asked if she has found a way to commiserate with her fellow actors on Euphoria, she responds, “We don’t really talk about that kind of stuff.”

Meanwhile, Entertainment Tonight has reported that Sweeney and Jonathan Davino are “happily engaged” and have begun planning their wedding. The celebrity ignited engagement speculations in March when she was sighted out and about in Los Angeles sporting a massive diamond ring. Despite being spotted together on several times over the years, Sweeney and Davino, 38, have not publicly acknowledged their relationship as of at least 2018.
