Sydney Sweeney may be best known for her work as an actor, but acting is just the tip of the iceberg for the Euphoria star, and her net worth is certainly starting to reflect that. In recent years, Sweeney has become a recognizable actor, snagging coveted roles in Euphoria, Sharp Objects, The Handmaid’s Tale, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and more. In 2020, Sweeney announced that she’d launched her own production company, Fifty-Fifty Films, so that she could have even more control over the stories she was telling. But just how did Sweeney amass so much success at such a young age?
While it may seem like Sweeney exploded into stardom overnight, that couldn’t be further from the truth. The actor has been diligently working for the past 11 years to amass her net worth and her impressive resume. At just 12 years old, she sat her parents down and gave a Powerpoint presentation about how she would acquire both a college degree and a successful career in entertainment. Then, she got to work putting her plans into action.

Rather than studying film or theater, Sweeney chose to study entrepreneurship. The Euphoria star felt that it was necessary for her to be able to spot a bad contract, so she made sure to take business classes to better understand the legal jargon that is often buried in the contracts that she has to sign. Sweeney has already begun to put her entrepreneurial skills to the test by launching Fifty-Fifty Films.
Sweeney has hit the ground running with Fifty-Fifty Films. Since announcing the company in July of 2020, the actor already has already secured her first project. Sweeney will star alongside her good friend Halsey in a series called The Players Table based on the novel They Wish They Were Us. In an interview with Deadline, the actor got candid about what the production company meant to her and how excited she was about diving into her first project.

“Starting Fifty-Fifty Films has been a goal of mine for a long time,” Sweeney revealed. “When I read They Wish They Were Us I was instantly drawn to the specificity of the world and the struggles of the characters — and I knew it was the first project I wanted to produce. I’m really honored that Jean-Marc Vallée and Nathan Ross wanted to partner on this series. I’m getting to learn from the best. We are really thrilled to be working alongside an empowering filmmaker like Annabelle.”
Of course, Sweeney also has more acting projects in the works. In addition to starring in Euphoria Season 2, Sweeney is also set to star in a social satire entitled The White Lotus, which also has a home on HBO. Furthermore, Sweeney recently booked the lead role in a feature film, Silver Star. It’s clear that Sweeney has no issues with staying booked and busy and her net worth certainly is beginning to reflect just how dedicated she is to her craft.

But just how much is Sweeney worth? The exact number isn’t yet public knowledge. Some sources like Summary estimate Sweeney to be worth $1 million while others like World Celebs calculate that the actor is worth $2 million. Either way, Sweeney is certainly well on her way and we expect that number to greatly increase in the years to come.
