The White Lotus actress didn’t shy away from roasting her recent appearance in Madame Web as Julia Carpenter alongside Dakota Johnson and Emma Roberts. Sporting a beautiful white noodle-strapped dress, Sweeney quipped, “You have seen me in Anyone But You and Euphoria. You definitely did not see me in Madame Web,” after the film received brutal critics' reviews and failed badly at the box office. “But I do have a new film coming out called Immaculate. I play a nun, so it’s perfect casting,” she added.

"I feel like people only see me as the girl on TV who screams, cries, and has sex," the Euphoria actress said, taking a moment to express that she wanted "everyone to get to know the real me." Next, she shared a bit about her hometown and showed her gratitude toward her parents for believing in her.

“That’s obviously not true. Me and my fiancé [Jonathan Davino] produced the movie together, and he was there the entire shoot. And I just want to let everyone know that he’s the man of my dreams and we’re still together and stronger than ever. He even came here tonight to support me. Can we cut to him?” She added as the camera panned towards someone special, and guess who was there? She added as the camera panned towards someone special, and guess who was there?
