Florence Pugh is a well-known English actress. In 2014, she made her acting debut in the drama film The Falling. Pugh won a British Indie Film Award in 2016 for her performance as a young bride in the independent movie Lady Macbeth.
Little Women, Midsommar, and Marvel blockbuster Black Widow has made Pugh one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actresses. Apart from her award-winning acting skills, the actress is also famous for her perfectly shaped nose, face, and figure.
She explained to Louis Wise from The Times how surviving illness as a youngster and refusing the industry’s obsession with her slim shape made her who she is now.
Florence Pugh refused to lose weight for a role
The Oxford-born actress has previously confessed at the EE Rising Star Award that she was encouraged to thin down for a role. In an interview, Pugh revealed that in her early career, she was asked to change things like her “weight, the shape of face, the shape of eyebrows.”
She said, “I’ve been told to be skinny before, it’s already happened, but it’s up to you to either listen or say no. I’m not listening. It shapes who you want to be and what character you want to play. I’m looking for characters – interesting women that spark conversation.”
She stated that following her on-screen debut, she traveled to Los Angeles for the pilot season to participate in the intensive audition process used by networks to find new stars for upcoming TV shows. Pugh was cast in Studio City as a rising pop singer at 19.
“I felt very lucky and grateful and couldn’t believe that I had got this top-of-the-game job,” she said in an interview. But things quickly changed when executives began asking her to change her appearance.
“All the things that they were trying to change about me, whether it was my weight, my look, the shape of my face, the shape of my eyebrows, that was so not what I wanted to do, or the industry I wanted to work in,” Pugh said.
Florence Pugh fired back at trolls
When Pugh wore a stunning pink gown to the Valentino Haute Couture show in Rome, she was called out by many as the actress’ breasts were visible through the see-through dress. But Pugh didn’t back down and fired back at those “vulgar” trolls.

Pugh noted in an Instagram post of July 2022 that she expected a reaction to the costume she picked for the runway show but was eager to wear it. “I was excited to wear it; not a wink of me was nervous. I wasn’t before, during, or even now after.”
“What’s been interesting to watch and witness is just how easy it is for men to totally destroy a woman’s body, publicly, proudly, for everyone to see. You even do it with your job titles and work emails in your bio..?”
She continued, “Thankfully, I’ve come to terms with the intricacies of my body that make me, me. I’m happy with all of the ‘flaws’ that I couldn’t bear to look at when I was 14.”
“So many of you wanted to aggressively let me know how disappointed you were by my ‘tiny tits’ or how I should be embarrassed by being so ‘flat chested.’ I’ve lived in my body for a long time. I’m fully aware of my breast size and am not scared of it,” she added.
