Sydney Sweeney remains booked and busy. On top of Euphoria season three, the actor is set to produce and star in the HBO limited series The Player’s Table and Marvel’s upcoming Spider-man spin-off Madame Web alongside Dakota Johnson. Furthermore, she says she won’t be taking a break from acting anytime soon, even if she wanted to.
“They don’t pay actors like they used to, and with streamers, you no longer get residuals,” she told The Hollywood Reporter in July, adding, “If I wanted to take a six-month break, I don’t have income to cover that. I don’t have someone supporting me, I don’t have anyone I can turn to, to pay my bills or call for help.”
Here’s how she broke it down: “The established stars still get paid, but I have to give 5% to my lawyer, 10% to my agents, 3% or something like that to my business manager. I have to pay my publicist every month. That’s more than my mortgage.”
Ultimately, the artist says she’s resorted to taking multiple brand deals to subsidise her income. “If I just acted, I wouldn’t be able to afford my life in L.A.,” she said. “I take deals because I have to….I couldn’t believe I was even able to buy a house. I want to be able to stay there.”
