I’m sorry, Sydney Sweeney, but your rich girl problems don’t count

dear sydney,

Girl I feel your pain

As a person fortunate enough to make a living in this spiraling economy – one in which sky-high inflation on food, gas and rent is leaving families across the country almost destitute – I, too, have “no income.” to support a six-month sabbatical from work. And it sucks.

It’s a low key criminal.

When I recently read your Hollywood Reporter profile that you couldn’t afford to take half a year off to star in HBO’s drug, sex and high school drama Euphoria or star in a multi-million dollar film production, it was almost like reading my own diary.

As you said, “I have no one to support me, I have no one to turn to to pay my bills or to call for help.” I was like, “Hey, same thing here. What gives?”

And when you moaned, “You don’t pay actors like you used to” and noticed the pathetic profit you make for starring in an acclaimed premium network cable streamer, I said to myself, “Well, if a pretty one.” Blonde An Emmy nominee living in a $3 million Los Angeles mansion can’t get a fair shot, who can? Damned!.’

Like you, dear, most of us non-Hollywood headliners don’t have anyone to pay our bills either.

So, I totally understand where you’re from.

It’s cruel how we wake up before the sun every day and have to log into a virtual WFH system or grudgingly shuffle to the office.

Some of us have been doing this every day for decades. And we foolishly never expected to take a six-month break. The shame!

For years, like fools, we’ve accepted a one-hour lunch break as our proper break from the grind.

But you, in your infinite wisdom of 24 years and with less than 10 years of professional experience, now unabashedly squawk about injustice in the workplace. brave

And for my part, I think you deserve the privilege of having time to relax from June to December. You’re having a pretty tough time.

As I’m sure you know, having a job (or in some cases two or three) to support ourselves is a much easier cross for us citizens to endure than yours.

You’ve admitted yourself that some of that hard-earned cash is already spent before you even get your hands on your earnings — a check for $25,000 per episode.

“I have to give 5% to my attorney, 10% to my agents, 3% or something to my CEO,” you bravely confessed. “I have to pay my publicist every month and that’s more than my mortgage.”

girl what?

I’m so thankful that we 9-to-5ers don’t have these kinds of problems.

Three percent “or so” to your managing director? That is hard.

We should be ashamed that we’ve ever complained about having to pay over 50% (or more) of our checks to our landlords, student loan debt collectors, healthcare or childcare providers.

And you, someone with an estimated net worth of $4,000,000, need your publicist — the person who keeps your rep spotless to ensure you’re the first choice for lucrative deals like those with Miu Miu, Laneige, and Armani Beauty are – more than paying the mortgage on your villa? I’m really shaking.

It’s just not right.

Celebrities like you and power couple Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen – who, together with a combined fortune of about $650 million, recently admitted that employing an on-call staff of chauffeurs, cooks and nannies is the “hardest” aspect of parenting – need taking a break.

If I read your THR feature correctly, you can’t even afford to live in a gated community like the Kardashians. So not cool.

And people are complaining about living in public housing and disenfranchised communities – the nerve.

So, Sydney, next time I commute to work on the train — suffocating in a mask for fear of COVID, pray those wounds on the guy’s arm sitting next to me aren’t monkeypox and try not to slip in one fresh puddle of urine – I’m comforted by the fact that your working life without months is just as unglamorous.

And if I ever pass a person who is unsafe at home and crying on a bench, I say, ‘There, there, Sydney Sweeney’s house doesn’t even have a door. And she’s not crying about it.”
