Succession star Sarah Snook says Hollywood perpetuates an ‘unrealistic beauty standard’


Sarah Snook has slammed Hollywood’s unrealistic beauty standards and revealed how she talks herself out of looking like ‘a movie star’.   

Appearing on the cover of Vogue Australia’s latest issue, the Australian actress, 33, says she won’t be hitting the gym to change her body any time soon. 

‘I mean, every time you get a role, you’re like: ‘Oh, this one’s the one. I’m going to really work out and get fit and look like the movie star I would hope to become or have a career doing,’ she told the magazine’s November issue.

‘And every time, I’m like: ‘Can I really be f***ed subscribing to an unrealistic beauty standard that then perpetuates and makes more women unhappy because they feel like they can’t attain something that’s not actually realistic anyway?’

In the accompanying photo shoot, Sarah models a series of stunning outfits, including a fitted red frock with a matching jacket. 

She also looks stunning in a high fashion dress with oversized sleeves and a pussy bow detail, and a sparkling sequin duster.

Elsewhere in the interview, Sarah revealed that she had married her best friend of six years, Aussie comedian Dave Lawson. 

Sarah proposed to Dave, 43, in October last year, and the pair married in the backyard of her home in Brooklyn, New York, in February. 

‘At the beginning of the pandemic last year, I got locked down in Melbourne with one of my best mates and we fell in love,’ she told Vogue.

‘We’ve been friends since 2014, lived together, travelled together, always excited to see each other, but totally platonic.

‘We’ve just never been single at the same time. I proposed and we got married in February in my backyard.’ 

Sarah added that without the pandemic, the couple might not have ended up together so quickly.

Snook plays the character Siobhan ‘Shiv’ Roy in Succession, which has been a huge hit for HBO. 

The series is set within the powerful Roy family, who run a massive media conglomerate, with Shiv and her siblings Roman (Kieran Culkin), Kendall (Jeremy Strong) and Connor (Alan Ruck) all working below their father Logan (Brian Cox). 

Succession is finally set to return to screens, following a slew of pandemic-based delays – and according to early reviews, Season Three is well worth the wait.

In the wake of press previews of the show, which is set for release on October 18, four and five star accolades confirm the battle of the Roys, which left us on a chilling cliffhanger helmed by Kendall, will be as explosive as ever.

Season Two concluded in 2019 on a cliffhanger, first tying up the mystery surrounding who would be the ‘blood sacrifice’ offered to the shareholders.

After being tipped to be the sacrifice, Logan’s son Kendall, played by Jeremy Strong, was then seen explosively outing his father for the dirty dealings within his company Waystar RoyCo and fans have been waiting to see the subsequent fallout.

In the nail-biting episode, Kendall steps out to speak at a press conference, in which he spills the details of the cruise scandal among other Waystar Royco secrets.   

Season three is already receiving rave reviews from critics around the world.  

In the UK, The Times dished out five stars and insisted the comeback is ‘thrilling’ following last season’s ‘electrifying climax’, while in the US, Rolling Stone gave four stars and stated the show is ‘bigger, badder and bloodthirstier than ever’. 

The third season of Succession is available to stream on Binge in Australia and with a NOW Entertainment Membership in UK, from the 18th October.
