Sydney Sweeney, the rising Hollywood star from shows like Euphoria, has been making waves in both TV and film. One of her recent projects was starring in The Rolling Stones’ music video for their song “Angry” from their latest album, Hackney Diamonds. While many loved the video, some critics believed Sweeney was being sexually objectified. However, Sweeney disagrees and wants to set the record straight.
In an interview with Glamour UK, Sweeney expressed her viewpoint on the criticism: “I felt hot. I picked my own outfit out of racks and racks of clothes. I felt so good in it. That’s really all that matters.” Sweeney is unapologetic about her body and has previously showcased her confidence by wearing bikinis and sheer dresses. She finds empowerment in embracing her body and doesn’t see anything wrong with it.
When asked if she’s a feminist, Sweeney replied, “I find empowerment through embracing the body that I have. That’s sexy and strong, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it.” She also shared how amazing it was to be part of The Rolling Stones’ music video. From freestyle moves to riding on top of a convertible with police escorts on Sunset Boulevard, it was a dream come true for Sweeney.
While not everyone may appreciate the “Angry” music video, Sweeney absolutely loved it. Being in a music video for one of the most popular rock bands was an incredible experience for her. Despite the ongoing criticism, she doesn’t care because she chose her outfit and felt amazing in it.
Dealing with body shamers and online negativity is not new to Sweeney. In the past, she has been candid about how the internet handles her nude scenes in Euphoria, even to the point where her family gets tagged in discussions about them. She believes in having open conversations about these scenes rather than making assumptions.
Being in the limelight comes with its challenges, but Sweeney is determined to stay empowered and comfortable with herself. She wants people to understand that self-image is not just about appearances but also about how you feel. With each project, Sweeney continues to add iconic moments to her growing résumé.
