- Sydney Sweeney plays "Cassie" in HBO's hit series Euphoria
- Sweeney is correcting some of the comments she made back in January
- Sweeney has recently gotten engaged
Sydney Sweeney is making sure the public knows how the actors on set were treated during Euphoria, which featured a lot of triggering scenes and nude moments. The actress said back in January that she would tell the director she felt some topless scenes were unnecessary.
Sydney Sweeney said she always felt safe
Despite the amount of nudity in many of "Cassie's" scenes, Sydney Sweeney is making sure that her previous comments in regards to the risqué topless moments are not taken out of context.
During her January interview with The Independent, Sweeney said that Sam Levinson, the director of the series, listened to her in regards to which scenes she felt the nudity was necessary or not.
"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 said. "I've never felt like Sam has pushed it on me or was trying to get a nude scene into an HBO show. When I didn't want to do it, he didn't make me."
However, the comments weren't well-received by the public and Sweeney is here to set the record straight!
It was twisted to sound as if Sweeney cut some scenes, but she said that's not the case.
"I never asked him to cut any scenes," she told Teen Vogue. "It got twisted and turned and it became its own beast, and I was like, 'Oh, my God.'"
Instead, Sweeney said it was meant to be in praise of Levinson, and how gracious he was with the safety of the actresses on set.
"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 regards to character, Sweeney said that it was good to have some scenes nude, as it adds to the authenticity of the character.
"I think it's important to the storyline and the character. There's a purpose to what that character is going through," she said. "That's the character. We all get naked in real life. We show this character's life and what they're going through. Cassie's body is a different form of communication for her."
Euphoria is now streaming on HBO Max.
