Sydney Sweeney Calls Madame Web a ‘Strategic Business Decision’ for Her

A lot of people were already trashing Madame Web when it came out in theatres, and they’re now having more fun with it again now that it just got a digital launch.

Though a lot of people have been asking stars like Dakota Johnson what they felt about the movie failing in the box office, Sydney Sweeney says that it was a necessary building block for her career. Talking to GQ, she explains how Web got Sweeney connected to some major decision makers over at Sony. She explains:

“To me that film was a building block, it’s what allowed me to build a relationship with Sony. Without doing Madame Web I wouldn’t have a relationship with the decision-makers over there… Everything in my career I do not just for that story, but strategic business decisions. Because I did that, I was able to sell Anyone But You. I was able to get Barbarella.”

Admittedly, Sweeney’s onscreen work isn’t the only thing that’s been turning heads for her fans. She’s also slowly attaching herself as a producer for more of her projects, including the massively successful rom-com Anyone But You as well as her upcoming horror movie Immaculate.

For now, Sweeney has definitely been getting better bookings based on her filmography, and even though a lot of people consider Madame Web to be a huge stumble, it’s possible that it could gain some kind of cult following now that more people have access to it. Kind of like Diablo Cody’s Jennifer’s Body.

Madame Web is now available on digital.
