The Sharp Objects star was well aware of the fact that she always wanted to be an actress. So much so that she made a 5-year business plan presentation for her parents as a teen to convince them to let her start auditioning for movies.

Sydney Sweeney said in an interview with GQ, “I hated going home and friends or family members being like, ‘When are you going to come home and get a real job?’” She mentioned that some people around her used to make extremely snobbish statements to her, which made her utterly disappointed. Not only did she feel guilty about disappointing her parents, who had sacrificed much to allow her to pursue her dreams.

Surprisingly, right after she was at her lowest, she got a major show and a film, viz., Everything Sucks and Sharp Objects, in the year 2018, and since then she has not stopped. Euphoria, The White Lotus, and The Handmaid’s Tale are some of her notable works. Currently, in addition to her ambitious project Barbarella, she will co-star with Dakota Johnson in Marvel’s Madame Web, which will release in February next year.
