With that being said, what was Sydney's salary on Euphoria? On top of that, what is her current net worth, and what exactly did she say about her work ethic? Let's unpack all of the known details.

What is Sydney Sweeney's net worth?

She has also starred in films such as Big Time Adolescence, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, and The Voyeurs. Sydney is also a model for the likes of Miu Miu and has various brand endorsement deals that substantiate her income.
Sydney Sweeney opened up about how her salary isn't enough "to take a six-month break."
You may think that being one of Hollywood's biggest rising starlets means that you're pretty financially secure, but Sydney Sweeney opened up about how difficult it is for her to make ends meet.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sydney revealed that she has to constantly take on new projects and brand partnerships to be able to afford her lifestyle.
"If I wanted to take a six-month break, I don’t have income to cover that," she told the publication. "I don’t have someone supporting me, I don’t have anyone I can turn to, to pay my bills or call for help."
Sydney then added that "They [networks] don’t pay actors like they used to, and with streamers, you no longer get residuals. The established stars still get paid, but I have to give 5 percent to my lawyer, 10 percent to my agents, 3 percent or something like that to my business manager. I have to pay my publicist every month, and that’s more than my mortgage."
"If I just acted, I wouldn’t be able to afford my life in L.A. I take deals because I have to," she concluded by saying.
