BUZZ: Sydney Sweeney’s dad ‘walked out’ after watching her racy ‘Euphoria’ scenes

Sydney Sweeney’s father, Steven Sweeney, could not bare to see his daughter strip down on her scandalous show “Euphoria.”

“My dad and my grandpa turned it off and walked out,” the actress reveals in an upcoming episode of “Sunday Today with Willie Geist.”

“But my grandma, my grandma — she’s a big supporter of mine … she’s a big fan of mine.”

Sydney, 25, admits, however, that she did not forewarn her father about what was on the show, and so he was caught off guard when he decided to watch it.

“I didn’t prepare my dad at all,” the “White Lotus” star tells host Willie Geist.

“When I talk to my dad, it’s usually not about work … we talk like father-daughter conversations.”

Steven is not the only member of the Sweeney family that felt the HBO series needed to scale back some of their racy content.

Sydney herself once asked “Euphoria” creator Sam Levinson to cut out some of her topless scenes.

“There are moments where [my character] Cassie was supposed to be shirtless and I would tell Sam, ‘I don’t really think that’s necessary here,’” the “Reality” star told the Independent in January 2022.

Sydney said her boss told her, though, “‘OK, we don’t need it.’”

“I’ve never felt like Sam has pushed it on me or was trying to get a nude scene into an HBO show,” she added. “When I didn’t want to do it, he didn’t make me.”

Since then Levinson, 38, has come under fire for allegedly turning his upcoming series, “The Idol,” into a “rape fantasy.”

Alleged members of the series’ cast and crew spoke to Rolling Stone for a bombshell exposé published in March, in which they accused the filmmaker of unnecessarily ramping up the sexual content and nudity in the new HBO drama.

“It was like any rape fantasy that any toxic man would have in the show — and then the woman comes back for more because it makes her music better,” one production member told the magazine.

Another added, “It was like, ‘What is this? What am I reading here?’ It was like sexual torture porn.”

Levinson allegedly dialed up explicit sex scenes when he took over production for “The Idol.”

However, HBO, the network behind the new series, stood by Levinson at the time.

A rep previously told Page Six, “The creators and producers of ‘The Idol’ have been working hard to create one of HBO’s most exciting and provocative original programs.

“The initial approach on the show and production of the early episodes, unfortunately, did not meet HBO standards so we chose to make a change.”
