Former rising star and now-household name Sydney Sweeney has appeared in multiple film and television projects aside from Euphoria. Nevertheless, her performance in the HBO series has earned her widespread acclaim. Sydney has been nominated for Emmy Awards, MTV Movie & TV Awards and several other accolades. It’s no surprise, then, that her net worth has skyrocketed since her big break in 2019.

What Is Sydney Sweeney’s Net Worth?

Sydney’s net worth stands at $10 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. However, it wasn’t an easy road to get there. In November 2023, the actress revealed to Women’s Health that her family “filed for bankruptcy” before she became famous, as she struggled with hearing “no” often in her career.

“I watched my parents lose a lot,” she said. “They lost their house back home on the lake. We couldn’t afford life in L.A. We couldn’t afford life anywhere.”

Sydney helped pay bills through babysitting, restaurant jobs and giving tours at Universal Studios.

Even today, Sydney said she still struggles to afford life as an actress.

“I don’t have someone supporting me,” she told The Hollywood Reporter in July 2022. “They 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% to my lawyer, 10% to my agents, 3% or something like that to my business manager. I have to pay my publicist every month and that’s more than my mortgage.”

How Does Sydney Sweeney Make Money?

Early in her career, the Spokane, Washington, native began appearing in several films and TV shows. One of her most noteworthy first feature film roles was in Along Came the Devil. 

She later guest starred in famous series such as Pretty Little Liars, Criminal Minds and Grey’s Anatomy. By 2019, Sydney had landed multiple roles, including a main role in Everything Sucks!, a recurring character in Sharp Objects and her famous recurring role in The Handmaid’s Tale, Eden Spencer. 

In 2019, the blonde beauty also earned a myriad of movie roles in Big Time Adolescence and Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood alongside its star-studded cast.

Sydney finally landed her breakout role as Cassie Howard in HBO’s Euphoria. Despite the show’s heavily dramatic material, the Los Angeles resident explained how she manages to stay grounded when getting into character for work. 

“I built my characters so thoroughly and made them their own person [so] that I’m able to jump in and out of who they are, how they think, how they would move and how they would react,” Sydney told TV Insider in June 2022. “And so when they call ‘action,’ I just become Cassie, and then when they call “cut,” I’m Sydney.”

Sydney’s dedicated portrayal of Cassie earned her a Primetime Emmy Award nomination in 2022 for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. She also nominated that year for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series in 2022 for her performance in The White Lotus

In May 2020, Sydney started modeling for Rihanna’s brand Savage X Fenty, later becoming a model for Parade’s lingerie in June 2021. By September of that year, the athletic actress was the face of Guess Original’s Anna Nicole Smith collection. 

Throughout 2022, Sydney was named the face of multiple brands and collections, including Jergens and Laneige. She was also the brand ambassador for fashion designer Tory Burch’s purse and shoe lines. 

On top of her endorsements and brand deals, Sydney continues to model for various companies.
