    According to Glen Powell, it was Sweeney’s idea to air the rumor of them dating. Powell said in an interview with the New York Times. He said, “The two things that you have to sell a rom-com are fun and chemistry. Sydney and I have a ton of fun together, and we have a ton of effortless chemistry… that’s people wanting what’s on the screen off the screen, and sometimes you just have to lean into it a bit — and it worked wonderfully. Sydney is very smart.”

    Sweeney was also the executive producer for ‘Anyone But You’ and the movie was produced under her Fifty Films Banner. Thus she was directly involved in the marketing of this film and things went exactly how she wanted.

    She said during the interview, “I was on every call. I was in text group chats. I was probably keeping everybody over at Sony marketing and distribution awake at night because I couldn’t stop with ideas.”

    The ‘Immaculate’ actress continued, “I wanted to make sure that we were actively having a conversation with the audience as we were promoting this film, because at the end of the day, they’re the ones who created the entire narrative.”
