Sydney Sweeney is a mere 25-year-old internet sensation. Her gorgeous looks and charming personality sets her apart from the crowd. Coming from humble beginnings, this actress made her way up to the top without any legacy support in the film industry. But her success came with a price. The actress has often talked about how she struggled and put in extra effort compared to actors with industry connections. However, the struggle is not the only thing that defines her journey toward becoming Hollywood’s IT girl.

Getting candid, the Hollywood star revealed this one major difference that haunts her life before and after her stardom.

After Sweeney achieved her success, her close family and friends, some of whom were skeptical at first, were “very happy” for her. But all the happiness didn’t stop things from changing. In an interview with Harper Bazaar, the Euphoria actress reminisced how her life is vastly different now. She feels a disconnect with her loved ones because they are unable to understand the world she is in.

“…the place that used to feel the most me, and the place where I felt the most understood, I’m not understood now,” said Sweeney. 

And even though Hollywood gave her a chance at an illustrious career, the people in the industry cannot fathom where she has come from, making her feel in-between spaces. 

The two-time Emmys award nominee grew up in a house that was in her family for five generations. From a rural lakeside house to a small one-bedroom apartment in Hollywood, the actor started working toward her five-year plan promise to her parents. The actress has come a long way, having moved from her countryside to pursue this ambitious dream.

Although she is continuing her shoot amidst the SAG-AFTRA strike, the actress made sure she was playing by the rules. The strike allows the shooting of music videos among a couple of other activities in the industry. But the production of almost all movies has suffered a huge blow as actors remain unavailable for filming.
