In a recent interview, actress Sydney Sweeney shared that she had a lot of fun hosting Saturday Night Live. She also said that the experience was rather scary, but it was something she very much wanted to do. Apparently, she wanted to do it because she believed it was important to do scary things, and hosting SNL felt challenging and terrifying.

Sydney Sweeney Was Scared to Host SNL

Sydney shared that her mouth dried up during the show, and she would get panic attacks just thinking of it. The actress learned how to face and conquer her fears in her youth, however. She shared a story from when she was 14 and doing a test for a recurring TV role, where there were more than two people in the room, and that scared her enough to forget her lines.

According to her, she apologized profusely and asked to leave, after which she learned that it was okay to be nervous and how to turn that energy into excitement. She said that she hoped she would get the chance to host SNL again and would be better prepared next time. The actress also shared her impression of the SNL team, praising everyone and calling them a great group of people.

Sweeney Had Fun Hosting

When she hosted the show, Sweeney poked fun at rumors about an affair she was allegedly having with Glen Powell, her co-star from the movie Anyone But You. She also pointed out that these rumors were false and that her fiancé was the man of her dreams.

Still, fans of the two shouldn’t be completely disappointed because Sweeney and Powell are reportedly already thinking of ideas for a sequel to the successful movie. Despite that, it will be some time before anything concrete is decided.
