Sydney Sweeney is shining brightly in the sky over Hollywood, which is getting brighter every day. The 25-year-old has gained so much today, most of it on her own. Apart from the name she has made by nailing big banner roles, the actress is making a fortune with it. The Euphoria actress belongs to a small town in the USA, and growing up, she did not have an abundance of money.

According to The Sun, the 25-year-old actress is the owner of a whopping net worth of about $6.2 million. For a person who once had a mere $800 to her name, this sum is gigantic. Moreover, the Sharp Objects actress did not have a godfather in the industry, so it was tough to make her way through. And that is why her net worth is something she is proud of building for herself.

Growing up, life was not easy for the 25-year-old. She was from a small town in Washington called Spokane and had a big dream of being an actress in a billion-dollar industry like Hollywood. It was hard for her to convince her small-town parents that she was serious about her dream. And everybody is familiar with the 5-year business plan story.

But then again, the actress’s parents did not have enough money to afford a hotel in LA, nor was it possible to afford a flight ticket. Hence, they used to take round trips to LA, which were usually twenty-hour drives. And even after she started doing well for herself by landing shows like Euphoria the actress said she could barely afford her lifestyle.

But now, by partnering with brands like Ford, Armani, Laneige, and Frankies Bikinis, the actress has become a money-making machine. She is also starring in big-budget projects like Madame Web and Barbarella which have the reputation of sparing no expense. It won’t be long before the actress joins the multi-millionaire club of the industry.
