Sydney Sweeney insisted his comments about not winning enough to take a break were “taken out of context”.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in July, the Euphoria star admitted she couldn’t afford to take a six-month break because she had “no income to cover it.”
However, in a new interview with ELLE magazine published on Thursday, the actress clarified the context behind the quote and insisted her comments were “a bit biased.”
“They asked me if I wanted to start a family and I said yes. And then they asked me why I didn’t have one yet, and I said to myself, I don’t have time to take even, like, a six-month break,” Sydney explained. “Like, I don’t have time to be able to start this family. I’m working so much and focusing on it right now.”
She added: “And so it was kind of biased with the audience and taken out of context, which was insane to watch and kind of disappointing too, because I think being a mom and a working mom is really I really want to achieve that one day, so I was disappointed that people took my words and changed them (to serve) their own agenda.
In her original interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 25-year-old admitted that HBO “don’t pay actors like they used to anymore” and explained where her money is going.
“Established stars always get paid, but I have to give my lawyer 5%, my agents 10%, my business manager 3% or something. I have to pay my publicist every month, and that is more than my mortgage,” she shared.
