Sydney Sweeney wants to clear the air. 

In a new interview with Teen Vogue, the 24-year-old actress clarified some comments she made a while back about topless scenes in her hit show ‘Euphoria.’ 

Back in January, she had told The Independent:

“There are moments where Cassie was supposed to be shirtless and I would tell Sam [Levinson, the show’s screenwriter], ‘I don’t really think that’s necessary here.’ He was like, ‘OK, we don’t need it.’ 

I’ve never felt like Sam has pushed it on me or was trying to get a nude scene into an HBO show. When I didn’t want to do it, he didn’t make me.”

Her comments were picked up by many publications who took them as her talking about “unnecessary” topless scenes that she wanted removed. 

Now, however, Sydney is setting the record straight:

“I never asked him to cut any scenes. It got twisted and turned and it became its own beast, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God.’”

She stated that what she wanted to express was how Sam would always pay attention to boundaries on set:

“It was more how respectful Sam is and how incredible of a director he is, that he would never make me do something I didn’t feel comfortable with.”

Sydney stressed that the nude scenes her character Cassie has for the series are integral to her story: 

“I think it’s important to the storyline and the character. There’s a purpose to what that character is going through. That’s the character. We all get naked in real life. We show this character’s life and what they’re going through. Cassie’s body is a different form of communication for her.”
