Sydney Sweeney isn’t even 25 years old yet and she has more money than most adults make in a lifetime thanks to starring in several Emmy-nominated shows, not to mention landing a casual role in the MCU. Sydney’s total net worth? We’ll get to that in a minute, but it’s huge—though pretty sure she has a different definition of “huge” than most people based on a candid (and somewhat controversial) interview she gave about her finances. Ready to get into it? Cool, same, love learning how rich other people are!

Sydney Made Most of Her Money Acting
She got her breakout role in The Handmaid’s Tale, landed a part in Sharp Objects, earned an Emmy nomination for her performance in The White Lotus, and earned yet another nomination for her work in Euphoria. She’s also making Marvel money thanks to a role in Madame Web.
Sydney’s exact per-episode salary isn’t known (and neither is her Marvel salary, though they typically pay, uh, very well), but she opened up about her finances in a candid interview with The Hollywood Reporter, saying she puts a lot of pressure on herself to work consistently and she doesn’t make as much money as people might assume.
“If I wanted to take a six-month break, I don’t have income to cover that,” she explained. “I don’t have someone supporting me, I don’t have anyone I can turn to, to pay my bills or call for help.” Um, same!
She added, “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 percent to my lawyer, 10 percent to my agents, 3 percent or something like that to my business manager. I have to pay my publicist every month, and that’s more than my mortgage.”
Obviously, these comments caused some backlash since most humans who work for a living also can’t afford to take six month breaks and the fact she has a mortgage to worry about means she owns a home (a very pricey one—we’ll get to that in a moment) which is a luxury in and of itself, BUT moving on!!!!!!!
She Supplements Her Income With Brand Deals
Like most celebrities, Sydney works with several brands to make money on the side. She told The Hollywood Reporter the overhead associated with being an actor was behind her decision to start doing brand deals with the likes of Miu Miu, saying, “If I just acted, I wouldn’t be able to afford my life in L.A. I take deals because I have to.”

She Has a $3 Million Home
According to Dirt, Sydney purchased her home in 2021 (for $305,000 over the asking price) and it’s located in the swanky neighborhood of Westwood. No pics because privacy, but she described purchasing the house as “an incredible, humbling, amazing accomplishment that I still can’t believe I was able to pull off.”
So, What Is Sydney Sweeney’s Net Worth in Total?
That would be $5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Maybe she can afford a lil break after all. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
