Sydney Sweeney is clarifying some comments about her “Euphoria” nude scenes.

Via People:

“In a January interview with The Independent, Sweeney, who stars as Cassie on the hit HBO Max series, said she had some authority over when her character was topless onscreen. “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,” she said.

While some took her comments to mean that Sweeny had the show cut a few of her nude scenes, the actress, 24, is now setting the record straight.

“I never asked him to cut any scenes,” Sweeney, 24, told Teen Vogue. “It got twisted and turned and it became its own beast, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God.'”
