Sydney Sweeney is red hot on the December cover of “Women’s Health.”
The “Euphoria” star, 26, bared it all for the poolside photoshoot, sporting a series of sexy looks.
The “Anyone But You” actress got candid in her chat about the highs and lows in her career, explaining just how much her parents sacrificed for her to pursue a career in Hollywood.
“I watched my parents lose a lot. We filed for bankruptcy,” Sweeney admitted, adding that they lost their house at one point.
The Washington native continued: “We couldn’t afford life in LA. We couldn’t afford life anywhere. It was hard because they were supporting my dream, and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.”
“I didn’t want to fail them. No matter how long it took, I was going to be in a TV show or a movie, and I wasn’t going to stop until something happened,” the blonde bombshell confessed.
Sweeney is particularly close with her cousins, whom she calls her “best friends.”
“I love my family, and I love where I came from. Anything my family needs, I’m always there for them,” she gushed.
Elsewhere in her profile, the “White Lotus” alum revealed she’s been picky about her friendships while navigating the flashy world of Tinseltown.
“It’s hard to build meaningful relationships, so whenever I am able to feel that connection, I try to foster it. Like [‘Euphoria’ co-star] Maude [Apatow] — I look at her as my sister,” Sweeney said.
She then noted how she tries to surround herself with like-minded people who value compassion. “I truly believe that kindness is the most important attribute anybody can have, because whoever you see on your way up, you’re going to see on your way down,” Sweeney said.
She went on: “I try to be as loyal to my people as I can, and I hope they return the favor. I also love watching everyone succeed together.”
Sweeney previously discussed how she felt embarrassed in her younger years due to her body changing at a quicker rate than her peers.
“I had boobs before other girls, and I felt ostracized for it,” Sweeney told the Sun in March.
Like the way people focused on her body as a teen, she’s been publicly bullied in recent years for revealing her body for her acting roles, and she constantly feels pressure to fight people’s misconceptions about her.
“I have big boobs, I’m blond and that’s all I have,” she stated of other people’s assumptions of the sum of her talents.
The star has faced criticism for going nude in HBO’s “Euphoria” while embodying her character of Cassie Howard. Screenshots of her nude scenes from the show have even circulated online by trolls, some of whom tagged her family in the photos.
“My cousins don’t need that. It’s completely disgusting and unfair,” Sweeney added at the time. “You have a character that goes through the scrutiny of being a sexualized person at school and then an audience that does the same thing.”
She concluded: “I think it’s ridiculous. I’m an artist, I play characters. It makes me want to play characters that piss people off more.”
