Porn star Sydney Sweeney said she thinks there is a ‘double standard’ when it comes to women filming nude scenes.

The 24-year-old actor, who played Cassie Howard in the second season of the popular teen drama and also now stars in the erotic thriller The Voyeurs; has voiced her views on the subject on a number of occasions.

Speaking to Cosmopolitan this week, she said: ‘There are films that compile world-famous male actors with hour-long nude scenes who win Oscars and are praised for that work.

“But the moment a woman does it, it degrades them.”

She added: ‘There is such a double standard and I really hope I can play a small part in changing that.’

The actor also explained that she didn’t feel anything when she saw nude pictures of herself on screen.

She added: ‘I’m so disconnected from it. When I’m tagged Cassie’s or Pippa from The Voyeurs nudity, it feels like I’m looking at their nudity. ‘

During the interview, Sydney also touched on the practicality of nude work, explaining: ‘When you shoot one of these scenes, it’s very technical and not romantic.’

‘When I first watched The Voyeurs, I wondered if I was doing too much.

In another interview with the Independent, she reiterated her views, saying she was ‘proud’ of her work on Euphoria, which has received much criticism for its nudity.

Sydney has also shared how at the beginning of her career she was told she didn’t have the ‘good looks’ and would ‘never appear on TV’.

Speaking to the Associated Press, the actress said: ‘There have been many years where I have been told “No” over and over.

‘I’ve been told I’m not good enough, I’ll never make it, I’m not pretty enough – all the time.’

She added: ‘I want to show the younger generations that you can do anything, even if you don’t have the means or the connections.’

Euphoria is available to stream on HBO and NOW.
