If you watch the HBO series for a few minutes, you’re likely to see a topless woman, yes, but the odds are just as high that a man will have a full frontal scene as well. As the show tackles topics like sex and consent, it also works to destigmatize the nude body for its viewers. Sometimes, though, the show’s creator, Sam Levinson may got too far. Sydney Sweeney, who has bared a lot—literally and figuratively—in her role as Cassie Howard on the show, revealed recently that she has had to tell Levinson to scale it back when it comes to her nude scenes.

Creator Sam Levinson to Cut Some of Her Nude Scenes by Eddy Chen/HBO Max Euphoria is an equal opportunity nude show. If you watch the HBO series for a few minutes, you’re likely to see a topless woman, yes, but the odds are just as high that a man will have a full frontal scene as well. As the show tackles topics like sex and consent, it also works to destigmatize the nude body for its viewers. Sometimes, though, the show’s creator, Sam Levinson may got too far. Sydney Sweeney, who has bared a lot—literally and figuratively—in her role as Cassie Howard on the show, revealed recently that she has had to tell Levinson to scale it back when it comes to her nude scenes. “ There are moments where Cassie was supposed to be shirtless and I would tell Sam, ‘I don’t really think that’s necessary here,’” she told The Independent .

My character is completely separate to me. It’s just so disrespectful and distressing.” She admitted that there aren’t copying mechanisms when it comes to a situation like that, “you just get used to it,” though it does help when you have a good support system around you on set. “I’ve had experiences where I want to go home and scrub myself completely raw because I feel disgusting,” she said.
