Despite having a net worth of a reported $5 million, the actress explained she "can’t get [her] mind to shut up" and she doesn't sleep over worries that she'll lose her relevance as a rising young star.
"If I wanted to take a six-month break, I don’t have income to cover that," Sweeney told The Hollywood Reporter in a recent interview. "I don’t have someone supporting me, I don’t have anyone I can turn to, to pay my bills or call for help."

"They don’t pay actors like they used to, and with streamers, you no longer get residuals," Sweeney added. "The established stars still get paid, but I have to give 5% to my lawyer, 10% to my agents, 3% or something like that to my business manager. I have to pay my publicist every month, and that’s more than my mortgage."
To help fund her Hollywood lifestyle, Sweeney turned to brand deals. She currently serves at the celebrity face of Miu Miu and found herself starring in an Armani beauty campaign.
