Sydney explained that she asked Euphoria creator Sam Levinson to remove some of her topless scenes.
She explained that for other projects, nude scenes made her feel uncomfortable.
Sydney Sweeney has opened up about filming nude scenes and says that she requested several be taken out of Euphoria season 2 (which is streaming right now on HBO Max in case you’re in the mood to feel vaguely traumatized by today’s fellow youths).
Speaking to The Independent (via Yahoo!), Sydney explained that she asked Euphoria creator Sam Levinson to remove some of her topless scenes. “There are moments where [my character] Cassie was supposed to be shirtless and I would tell Sam, ‘I don’t really think that’s necessary here,’” she said. “He was like, ‘Okay, we don’t need it.’”
“I’ve never felt like Sam has pushed it on me or was trying to get a nude scene into an HBO show,” she added. “When I didn’t want to do it, he didn’t make me.”
Sydney also explained that she’s “had experiences where I want to go home and scrub myself completely raw because I feel disgusting. I didn’t feel comfortable with my castmate or the crew, and I just didn’t feel like my character would be doing it.”
“I’m very proud of my work in Euphoria. I thought it was a great performance. But no one talks about it because I got naked,” she continued. “I do The White Lotus and all of a sudden critics are paying attention. People are loving me. They’re going, ‘Oh my god, what’s she doing next?’ I was like, ‘Did you not see that in Euphoria? Did you not see that in The Handmaid’s Tale?’ This is something that has bothered me for a while.”
Glad to see Sydney making her voice heard and to see the Euphoria creators listening.
