Sydney Sweeney is keeping cool by standing on a block of ice on a scorching Thursday in Los Angeles.
Sweeney, a 25-year-old actress best known for her roles in "Euphoria," "Reality," and now this photo shoot, is just wearing a hot-pink swimsuit and matching heels as she kneels on the icy ground.
Despite the cold, she shows no signs of pain. Steven, one of the members of her entourage, gathers around monitors to watch a master at work.
The performance abruptly ends, and she jumps up yelling, laughing, and shivering.
Two weeks later, in a tea cafe in New York City (and three weeks before SAG-AFTRA goes on strike), she remembers the incident. "I love when they let us play," she exclaims.
Fortunately, that is Sweeney's job as one of the most talented actors of her time.
She channeled the glory days of Cosmo cover girls while filming "Euphoria" and "The White Lotus," and she received supporting Emmy nominations for both.
In "Reality," her 2023 film that wowed the Berlin International Film Festival before making its HBO debut.
