Even though Sydney Sweeney has millions of followers on Instagram, she got emotional when she received her first-ever Cosmopolitan story in the mail.
The star, who spoke to the magazine for their February cover story, first went to the front door to get the package. “I am freaking out right now,” she exclaimed. “I am so nervous! I can’t even open it. I can’t even look at this right now. I have been dreaming of this day my entire life. This is really crazy.”
Then, when she looked at the photo, she said, “Oh my God — you guys! I don’t even know what to say right now, I am freaking out right now.”
Sweeney added that her favorite color is blue, which is what the background ended up being. “I have to call my mom!” she said.
The Euphoria starlet then discussed the accomplishment with her mama. “That’s awesome, pumpkin!” she replied to her daughter.
“I’m shaking, this is so crazy,” she continued. “There is a fold out of me. I used to take the fold outs of magazines and posters and put them all over my wall. I don’t know what to say, this is crazy. Thank you everyone.”
The actress also took to Instagram to share some of the gorgeous shots. “This has been a dream of mine since the beginning. Beyond surreal to see myself on the cover of @cosmopolitan February issue ‘The Love Issue,'” she wrote. “it’s not just my first @cosmopolitan cover, but I am also cosmo’s first female centerfold!!! 😜 on stands today 🥰.”
The Washington native also got candid during her interview, and she revealed that she doesn’t always love posting details about her personal life on social media.
“I have this formula that I try to follow. I’ll post about my work, I’ll post about fashion because when the hell else would I look that good? And then I try to sprinkle in a Syd post once in a while,” she explained.
As far who gets to see the real Sweeney, she said: “A lot of my family back home, my dog Tank, and a few close friends. I don’t have a giant group of friends. I prefer quality over quantity. Sometimes at work, if I feel really comfortable with the cast and crew, different versions of Syd will come out. Sometimes I’ll go home and be like, ‘I wish I didn’t speak as much.'”
