Sydney Sweeney has revealed how she purchased back the house once owned by her great-grandparents.

Recently, the Euphoria star appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show and opened up about the treasured home originally owned by her great-grandmother and great-grandfather.

Speaking to the host, Sweeney shared that her great-grandmother endured financial struggles after her great-grandfather passed away, and was no longer able to afford the property.

This led to the family ultimately parting ways with the residence, which had held great sentimental value for the actress's great-grandparents, grandmother, and mother.

At the age of 26, Sweeney has made many accomplishments in her career such as earning Primetime Emmy Award nominations for her performance as Cassie Howard in the popular HBO drama series, and Olivia Mossbacher in the first season of the anthology series, The White Lotus.

However, one of her most important achievements occurred outside of Hollywood, and that has been buying back her great-grandparents' home.

Watch Sweeney on The Kelly Clarkson Show:

"My great-grandma had this beautiful house, two bedroom, cute house that they lived in," Sweeney told the 41-year-old singer. "My grandma was born in it. My mom was born in it, and then as the kids got older, they built on the property another home.

"And when my great-grandpa passed away and my great-grandma got old they just couldn’t afford to keep it anymore," she said, to which Clarkson added: "'Yeah the upkeep."

The Handmaid's Tale actress has starred in several films and television shows, so the money earned as a result of these roles was enough to re-purchase the house.

"Last year I called up [the owners], and I said I want to buy my great-grandmother’s house back," she revealed. "And it’s really cool too, my granny still lives in the house next door," she said, adding: "So, I’m neighbors with my granny now."

The Everything Sucks actress has been open about the financial difficulties her family endured as she pursued acting.

She explained to Women's Health last month that she "watched [her] parents lose a lot," such as filing for bankruptcy and losing their house back home on the lake.

"We couldn't afford life in L.A. We couldn’t afford life anywhere," she told the publication. "It was hard because they were supporting my dream, and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else."

To survive, Sweeney took on jobs such as cleaning restaurant bathrooms, babysitting, and serving as a tour guide at Universal Studios.

"I didn’t want to fail them. No matter how long it took, I was going to be in a TV show or a movie, and I wasn’t going to stop until something happened," she shared.

Now, Sweeney is a major actress in Hollywood and is gearing up for the release of the upcoming rom-com Anyone But You opposite Glen Powell, which is set to be released on December 22.
