While appearing on Live with Kelly and Mark to promote her movie, she addressed the mild injury she suffered. 

That was a real spider. It bit me. It was a huntsman. While we were filming that scene, it bit me. It hurt so bad, I had horrible, horrible marks on my hand. I had to take meds and everything. Because anything can kill you in Australia.”

They told me it was trained,” Sweeney said of the arachnid. “I don’t know how you train a freaking spider. There’s no way.” 

A recent trailer for Anyone But You teases a scene where Bea (Sydney Sweeney) and Ben (Glen Powell) attend a wedding in Australia, pretending to be a couple. In one particular scene, the duo engages in a playful moment during a staged hike. Bea discovers a sizable spider in Ben’s pants, promptly removing it and tossing it aside. While Ben, in a hilariously panicked response, sheds his clothes, desperate to escape any other potential eight-legged hitchhikers.

The spider actually bit me in the middle of the scene, but nobody called cut because they thought I was just making a very dramatic, interesting choice in this scene.”

She added: “Glen was the only one who finally caught on — they thought I was acting but it actually bit me.” 

To this, Powell responded: “There’s a different tone to her voice when somebody is actually being bit by a spider. We just thought it was really dramatic improv.”
