Sydney Sweeney is surely gaining momentum in her career and she might be on the verge to make or break it. However, the actress does not seem to be getting rest, which did not work out in her favor. Recently in June, the up-and-coming actress dealt with a major burnout at the mere age of 24. But she's standing on the horns of a dilemma as she claims that she can't afford to take a break from her schedule as well.

The 24-year-old actress, in a conversation with THR, posted on Wednesday, July 27, shared just how exhausted she was with the overwhelming schedule. She explained that all the ruckus convinced her brain that she was dying saying, "I was losing my shit." Even though she went to the Pacific Northwest for two weeks to blow off some steam, she couldn't quite get it right. Sweeney said, "I still can’t get my mind to shut up, and I don’t sleep." The pressure on Sweeney is understandable as she's all about maximizing the momentum in this crucial time of her career. The 'Euphoria' and 'The Handmaid's Tale' actress is enjoying a bunch of Emmy nominations and an undeterred fan base.

If the fans are thinking that she has earned enough, in her own words, she hasn't. Further, into the conversation, she reflects on the possibility of a 6-month long break and buying a $3 million house in Los Angeles, where people can only dream of living. Talking about her schedule, she explained that she doesn't have to say yes to every deal. However, she keeps her schedule packed. She said, "If I wanted to take a six-month break, I don’t have the income to cover that. I don’t have someone supporting me, I don’t have anyone I can turn to, to pay my bills or call for help. They don’t pay actors like they used to." With all the hit series and movies that she's appeared in, how much is her net worth exactly?

What is Sydney Sweeney's net worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Sweeney has a comfortable net worth of $5 million, courtesy of movies like 'Big Time Adolescence,' 'Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood,' and 'The Voyeurs,' and hit shows like 'The Handmaid's Tale,' 'Everything Sucks!' and people's favorite, 'Euphoria'. After quickly gaining traction in her career, she appeared in Halsey's music video titled 'Graveyard' and set up her production company called 'Fifty-Fifty Films.' After raking up enough cash and busting her muscles for the opportunity, she bought a house in Los Angeles for a whopping $3 million. The property was built during the Great Depression and was last sold in 1972 for $85,500. The property has five bedrooms and four bathrooms in 3,200 square feet.

Talking about how up-and-coming actors are getting paid these days, Sweeney said, "With streamers, you no longer get residuals. The established stars still get paid, but I have to give 5 per cent to my lawyer, 10 per cent to my agents, 3 per cent or something like that to my business manager. I have to pay my publicist every month, and that’s more than my mortgage." She explained that as a Gen Z actress where the Internet decides whether you're relevant or not, there's a lot of press to do, which includes styling, tailoring, hair, and makeup, travel, etc. These costs aren't often covered in the network. Sweeney explained that this is why she indulged in brand deals like being the 'Miu Miu' ambassador and starring in an Armani beauty campaign. She explained, "If I just acted, I wouldn’t be able to afford my life in LA I take deals because I have to.”
