Sydney Sweeney confides in us about the pressure to pay her bills

“If I wanted to take a six-month break, I don’t have the income to cover that.”

Sydney Sweeney recently opened up about the film industry and the pressure to pay her bills in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Indeed, even with her roles in Sharp Objects, Euphoria and The White Lotus the American actress is facing financial insecurities!

“I want to start a family, I’ve always wanted to be a young mom, and I worry about how this industry stigmatizes young women who have children and looks at them in a different light. I was afraid that if I didn’t work, there would be no money and no support for the children I would have,” she mentioned.

Moreover, even though she has the option to negotiate her salary, Sydney Sweeney tries as much as possible to fill her schedule with movies and series, due to the pressure of inflation.

“If I wanted to take a six-month break, I don’t have the income to cover that. I have no one to support me, I have no one to turn to to pay my bills or call for help.”

“They don’t pay actors like they used to, and with the streaming platforms, you don’t get compensation anymore. 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, and that’s more than my mortgage,” she concluded.

Indeed, the rising cost of living is adding pressure to everyone, it seems!
