Sydney Sweeney says she ‘never asked’ to remove her nud3 scenes in Euphoria 2


Sydney Sweeney says she ‘never asked’ to remove her nud3 scenes in Euphoria 2


Sydney Sweeney is clarifying her remarks on Cassie’s n@ked moments on Euphoria, which she made earlier.

In an interview with The Independent, the Handmaid’s Tale actress discussed her topless moments, claiming that she had urged the program’s screenwriter Sam Levison to eliminate some of her “unnecessary” nudit y from the show.

“There are moments where Cassie was supposed to be shirtless and I would tell Sam, ‘I don’t really think that’s necessary here,’” she stated in the interview. “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 nud3 scene into an HBO show. When I didn’t want to do it, he didn’t make me.”

Since then, Sydney has been featured as one of Teen Vogue’s New Hollywood edition cover stars. She used the cover story to clarify what she told The Independent, which she says “got twisted.”

Sydney told Teen Vogue, “I never asked him to cut any scenes.  It got twisted and turned and it became its own beast, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God.'”

Instead, Sweeney emphasized that Levison made everyone on set feel at ease, particularly during sensitive sequences.

“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,” she said. In case you missed it, Cassie’s newfound friendship with her best friend Maddy’s ex, Nate, was one of Euphoria’s primary themes for season 2, and Sydney believes her n@ked scenes were “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 n@ked in real life,” Sydney added. “We show this character’s life and what they’re going through. Cassie’s body is a different form of communication for her.”

While Sydney has nothing but appreciation for the experience filming n@ked sequences for Euphoria, not all of her experiences have been that pleasant.

Sydney has stated about her prior shootings, “I’ve 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.”

She went on to say that she “didn’t feel like [she] was able to speak up” at the time and express her worries.

Sweeney’s comments are just a few of the many that have been discussed throughout the show’s second season, which ended late last month and is poised to return for a much-anticipated third season.
