- Sydney Sweeney said she was nervous to work with Dakota Johnson on Sony’s “Madame Web.”
- The comic book movie stars Johnson as the titular clairvoyant hero.
- The “Euphoria” star explained that she watched “50 Shades of Grey” in high school.
“Euphoria” star Sydney Sweeney’s career has been on the rise in the last few years thanks to her involvement in the critically acclaimed HBO series, alongside appearances in shows like “Everything Sucks!,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and “Sharp Objects.”
But the 25-year-old actor recently landed a starring role in Sony’s upcoming Marvel movie, “Madame Web,” alongside Dakota Johnson, Emma Roberts, and Adam Scott. It’s the latest chapter of Sony’s “Spider-Man” universe and will introduce the clairvoyant Madame Web (Dakota Johnson), who frequently shows up in the comics to help the web-slinger deal with alternate universes and timelines.
The plot is being kept under wraps for the moment, as is Sweeney’s role in the film, but she recently spoke to Variety about working with Johnson on the project.
The actor said she was “a little nervous” because she admired the “50 Shades of Grey” star a lot after watching the film even though her parents banned her from seeing it.
Sweeney said: “I have to say — I snuck ’50 Shades of Grey’ in high school. My parents didn’t let me watch it and I watched it. So I’m a huge fan of her. She’s so hot.”
It’s easy to see why Sweeney’s parents were hesitant about letting her watch the film at a young age since it depicts a sadomasochistic relationship between Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan).
When asked if she had told Johnson what she thinks of her, Sydney said: “No! But, Dakota, you’re hot and I loved working with you.”
Variety also asked Sweeney about her upcoming projects, like “Euphoria” season three, but all she could share was that work begins “soon,” before also adding that she was “freaking out” about getting the titular role in Sony’s “Barbarella.”
However, the actor joked that she has so many things to keep to herself. “I feel like my whole life is a secret. It’s really hard,” Sweeney said.
