Sydney Sweeney is on the right track to becoming Hollywood’s next icon. While the actress started her career off with a dystopian series, The Handmaid’s Tale, it was not until she joined the cast of Euphoria that she got recognition. After cementing herself in the spotlight, the 26-year-old decided it was time to jump into films, and that is exactly what she did with her latest project, Anyone But You.

Fans initially had their reservations about the Will Gluck film. However, ever since the film was released, it seems to have been deemed as the rom-com of the year.

For most of last year, Sydney Sweeney and her co-star, Glen Powell, were either working on or promoting their film, Anyone But You. While it was a lot of work, it seems to have paid off. It was recently revealed that the film had grossed $150 million at the box office. The record break came only a month after the film was released, proving that the rom-com might have been the one to save 2023 from a year of no movies.

While the film seems to be breaking expectations now, it was not what fans had initially expected. Although Sweeney and Powell had kicked off romance rumors without realizing it, the teaser for the film left fans debating whether the stars lacked chemistry. The movie might have proved that fans read it wrong, but will the actress be able to recreate this kind of success with her next project?
