Euphoria might have landed Sydney Sweeney and Maude Apatow together, but it has also made them inseparable ever since. Their characters, Lexi and Cassie Howard, ended up in brawl as last season of Euphoria came to an end, but their friendship in real life is completely different. This is what has made the friendship for the on-screen friends so powerful.
Their Friendship Has Stayed Strong
In PEOPLE's The Beautiful Issue, Sweeny described their friendship by saying:
Everyone knows that if I'm not in my trailer, I'm in Maude's or if Maude's not in hers, she's in mine. She's the sister I always wished I had. And when the pair started working on the set of Euphoria, they would be good friends from the start. According to Apatow, Sweeny looked like the 'sweetest' cast member to approach and Apatow felt that Sweeney was 'so nice'.”
Because of the industry they work in however, the pair knew that their friendship they found was special. Sweeny said:
“It’s surprising that we are able to create the friendship. It’s so hard, not just as girls, to have friendships in our industry because we’re constantly traveling and moving from one project to another. You don’t have that much time to really nurture a friendship. With Euphoria, we spend so much time together.”
They Enjoy The Same Things
"We found relief through the dancing on TikTok," Sweeney also said in the same PEOPLE interview. "When we got bored, we did some moves. We're very much homebodies. I don't think we're that cool!"
They Love Each Other, And Are Not Afraid To Show It
Both actresses have shared their admiration for one another since Euphoria began four years ago. “She’s the sister I always wished I had,” has Sweeney of her friendship with Apatow. She also mentioned that Apatow is one of the kindest actresses she’s ever starred alongside. Apatow also described Sweeney as “the most on top of it, hardworking, incredible person to work with." Apatow also described Sweeney as “the most on top of it, hardworking, incredible person to work with." The pair previously shared that they have also met each others families, which has made their friendship even stronger.
They Set No Expectations
“I don’t know if I even put like any expectation of what you were going to be like.” And for Sweeney, that is what made the friendship better as it allowed them to "really open to each other and their friendship”.
