Sydney Sweeney admitted Euphoria might have been a little too hot and heavy for her dad and grandpa, who couldn’t finish one episode.
How’s this for an awkward Thanksgiving dinner: having to pass the mashed potatoes to your father, who can’t even look you in the eye after having seen you go at with some dude in the bathroom. That could be something Sydney Sweeney faces, revealing that both her father and grandfather had to leave the room after watching her sex- and drug-driven HBO series Euphoria.
On the latest episode of Sunday Today with Willie Geist (as per Entertainment Weekly), Sydney Sweeney said that while her mom would frequently visit the set of Euphoriaher old man kept a bit of a blind eye to the project. “My mom visited me on set at the time, so she knew the story and I talked to her a lot about it — my dad didn’t…Yeah, I didn’t prepare my dad. At all. He decided he was going to watch it, without telling me, with his parents.” And how did it go, having your dad and grandfather see your naked body in all of its euphoric glory? “My dad and my grandpa turned it off and walked out,” added Sweeney. Grandma has a different perspective, though. “My grandma is a big supporter of mine. She’s a big fan of mine. Actually I bring her, usually, all over the world to my different sets and I make her an extra.” We just hope not for one of those scenes…
Nudity has been one of the most focused-on topics regarding Euphoriasomething that the cast – especially Sydney Sweeney (who plays Cassie) – can’t help but get hounded about, previously saying, “People forget that I’m playing a character. They think, ‘Oh, she gets naked onscreen, she’s a sex symbol.’ And I can’t get past that. I have no problems with those scenes, and I won’t stop doing them, but I wish there was an easier way to have an open conversation about what we’re assuming about actors in the industry.”
Season three of Euphoria may be a long way off, but when it does return, you can still expect to see Sydney Sweeney return as Cassie…even though she expected creator Sam Levinson to kill her off in season two.
