Sydney Sweeney Says She Barely Earns Enough To Survive

Sydney Sweeney Says She Barely Earns Enough To Survive

The Euphoria star says she 'has to' take deals to ensure she can carry on living in her $3 million LA mansion

Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney has opened up about her financial situation, claiming she doesn't earn enough to survive.

According to an interview she recently did with The Hollywood Reporter, the star of the hit HBO show doesn't earn as much as you might think she does and can't afford to take time off to enjoy the celebrity lifestyle.

"If I wanted to take a six-month break, I don’t have income to cover that," the rising star said.

Sydney says most of her wage is spent on her team's wages.

"I don’t have someone supporting me, I don’t have anyone I can turn to, to pay my bills or call for help.”

Given she's able to boast beauty campaign deals with Miu Miu, Laneige and Armani, the 24-year-old admitted that she certainly isn't skint, but the day job doesn't bring in all that much.

"They don’t pay actors like they used to, and with streamers, you no longer get residuals," Sweeney explained.

"The established stars still get paid, but I have to give five percent to my lawyer, 10 percent to my agents, three percent or something like that to my business manager.”

The Emmy-nominated star added: “I have to pay my publicist every month, and that’s more than my mortgage.

"If I just acted, I wouldn’t be able to afford my life in LA. I take deals because I have to."

As the New York Post points out, she's not paying a mortgage on a modest two-up two-down, but instead a $3 million Los Angeles mansion with a golf course view from the front porch.

Sydney has become a star thanks to her role in Euphoria.

Unlike other mansions in the area, though, it isn't in a gated community, which means fans can easily drive by and grab pictures

“I couldn’t believe I was even able to buy a house,” she said. “I want to be able to stay there.”

In fairness to the star, she came from a frugal upbringing and explained the tough choices her parents had to make when they moved to LA to pursue her acting career at 13 years old.

“We lived in one room. My mom and I shared a bed and my dad and little brother shared a couch,” she recalled.
