A pump, a pipe and a horse bit made that 'Euphoria' vomit scene so violent
The season 2 scene featured Sweeney’s character, Cassie, vomiting violently in a hot tub. “A lot of films, they'll just have a cup of mushed up anything that they have from craft team mixed with milk and water,” Sweeney, 26, explained on Hot Ones, “and it’s the most disgusting thing, and you just put it in your mouth and you hold it and then you puke it up.”
But creator Sam Levinson had grander plans in mind.
“Sam, of course, did not want that,” she said. “He just wanted vomit everywhere, so they had to get a pump, and they had this pipe that they just taped and hid on my body, and then they CGI-ed it out up my neck. And then there was a horse bit that I had to put in my mouth.”
The setup led to a super uncomfortable moment for Sweeney: “During that scene, they're filling my mouth with throw up, and then I open my mouth and it just starts shooting out of my mouth. And it was the most disgusting thing I've ever experienced.”
The vomit scene is just one way Euphoria's raw depiction of troubled teens, which includes drug use and sex, has turned off her family.
