(CNN) — Sydney Sweeney is aware of the rumors surrounding her and sometimes, she admits, everything gets to her.
The “Euphoria” actress, who also has the “Barbarella” reboot lined up, told Variety, “Sometimes I get beaten up about it.” The statements were made in a cover story published Wednesday for Variety magazine. “It’s hard to sit and watch and not be able to defend yourself.”
Sweeney has had to contend with rumors about her family’s politics and allegations that she had an affair with “Anyone But You” co-star Glen Powell.
He is also aware that his own words can backfire on him, saying that it can be difficult to give individual quotes much context.
“When we’re having a two-hour conversation and have been on six dates, it’s very difficult to understand the context behind what we’re talking about and how we’re saying it to each other,” she told the publication. ” ,
In 2022, Sweeney throws a birthday party for his mother, and photographs show guests in blue Lives Matter clothing and red MAGA caps, later revealed to read “Make Sixty Great Again”.
Of that backlash, the actress said this week: “There were a lot of misinterpretations. The people who were in the pictures weren’t even my family. The people who brought up the things that people were upset about were actually I had friends of my mother’s from Los Angeles.” They have kids who were in the Pride Parade, and they thought it would be fun to take them because they were coming to Idaho.”
And of the Powell buzz that started when he and his co-star presented their new film “Anyone But You” at CinemaCon in Las Vegas earlier this year, he simply remarked, “It’s a romantic It’s comedy.”
He said, “That’s what people want! Glenn and I don’t care about it. We have a great time together and we respect each other a lot; he’s a hard worker and I am too.” “We talk all the time like, ‘This is so funny.'”
