Sydney Sweeney has become the limelight of the Hollywood It Girl era. Her role in Euphoria and The White Lotus accentuated this image even more. In addition, she recently made news about her dazzling Samsung event in Seoul. In addition, she also became the fresh face of Armani Beauty. And she also dropped major hints with her BTS makeup looks from her music video. To top it all off, fans saw her cruising the streets of LA in a red convertible wearing a black skirt outfit.

The fan-favorite It Girl, however, had starred in a genre different from the sunshine-loving persona before. Let us go back five years when the Euphoria actress once spoke openly about her Emmy-winning show.

The Madame Web actress confessed about having never watched The Handmaid’s Tale before. Sweeney told The Hollywood Reporter in 2018 that she got a call for the audition for the second season of the dystopian tragedy drama. After the call, she decided to dive head-first into the first season and see what it was all about. She wanted to get a “feeling of the show.” 

Interestingly, the actress binged it entirely in a night because she “couldn’t stop watching it.” The 25-year-old watched the entire season again with her mom. The actress has had a successful run in this eight-time Emmy award-winning show.

The actress spoke to Pop Sugar just before her Samsung event in South Korea. Donning her Rokh dress, the Reality actress revealed how she had a mantra to stay ambitious. She added that she dreams of being “a successful, strong woman” as a 30-year-old. Her trick to striving for the best is to imagine if her 30-year-old self would be proud of the choices she made today.

The young American won the MTV Movie + TV Awards for Euphoria in 2022 while she has also earned two Primetime Emmy Awards nominations in her career so far. Undoubtedly, her 30-year-old self would also be proud of her making it to Variety’s Young Honorees list.
