Sydney Sweeney on Comments About 'Euphoria' Showrunner Sam Levinson "That Got Twisted"
Involving the actor’s nude scenes.
In January, Sweeney did an interview with The Independent, in which she said she “was supposed to be shirtless and I would tell Sam, ‘I don’t really think that’s necessary here’ and he was like, ‘OK, we don’t need it.’”
However, in her new cover story for Teen Vogue, she said that her comments “got twisted and turned and it became its own beast.”
The Euphoria star, who portrays Cassie, added, “It was more how respectful Sam is and how incredible of a director he is, that he would never make me do something I didn’t feel comfortable with. I think [nudity is] important to the storyline and the character. There’s a purpose to what that character is going through. That’s the character. We all get naked in real life. We show this character’s life and what they’re going through. Cassie’s body is a different form of communication for her.”
Seasons 1 and 2 of Euphoria are currently streaming on HBO Max.
