Sydney Sweeney complains of lack of holidays

Despite being on many highly acclaimed as well as popular productions, the actor has claimed she doesn’t get paid well enough to have a 6-month holiday if she desired. In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, she expanded on the same, stating:

“If I wanted to take a six-month break, I don’t have 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.”

Even though she doesn’t feel pressured to accept every offer, she keeps her schedule packed and it still isn’t enough for her to buy a vacation. She said actors don’t get paid as they used to, despite having the shows and movies make bank. She further noted:


“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.”
