Sydney Sweeney said it "bothered" her that she wasn't recognized for her work in previous shows before starring in "The White Lotus."
"With ‘The White Lotus,’ I felt like people were finally recognizing the hard work I've been doing. This is something that has bothered me for a while," Sweeney told the outlet.
"I'm very proud of my work in ‘Euphoria.’ I thought it was a great performance. But no one talks about it because I got naked. I do ‘The White Lotus’ and all of a sudden critics are paying attention. I was like, ‘Did you not see that in ‘Euphoria?’ Did you not see that in ’The Handmaid's Tale?'"

Sweeney further explained that she believes there is "a stigma against actresses who get naked on screen" in the industry.
"When a guy has a sex scene or shows his body, he still wins awards and gets praise. But the moment a girl does it, it's completely different," she said.
While speaking about the second season of "Euphoria," the actress revealed she had some of her character's nude scenes cut when Sweeney felt they weren't "necessary."
