“When I’m at my most natural, then I feel like I can really be looked at”

She’s one of the hottest names in cinema and has a “healthy amount of anger” in her, as Kate Shortland, who directed young Brit Florence Pugh in Marvel’s Black Widow, puts it.

That anger has been with her since her early breakthrough, and Florence recently opened up about how it helped her.

Pugh was only 17 when he starred in the British mystery “The Falling”. Her first contact with Hollywood was two years later, when she was chosen for the lead role in the series Studio city.

She simply can’t believe that she reached such a peak so early and easily, but the producers bring her down quickly. Although she gets the role, they explain to her that not everything about her is as it should be for such a heroine.

“All the things they were trying to change about me — whether it was my weight, my looks, the shape of my face, my eyebrows — it wasn’t what I wanted. It wasn’t the industry I wanted to work in,” explains 26 -year-old Don’t Worry Darling star.

“I thought the film industry was going to be like The Falling, but I actually felt like I made a big mistake,” she says.

Ultimately, the series never began filming, Pugh returned to England and decided that her career was over sooner rather than later. Two weeks later, however, she auditioned for the role of Lady Macbeth in the film of the same name. He won it, and after its premiere – a bunch of positive reviews for his performance.

“It made me fall in love with cinema again, this cinema where you can be loud and loud,” says Florence.

“I think it’s too easy for people in this industry to steer you left or right. And I was lucky enough to discover at 19 what kind of performer I wanted to be,” admits Pugh.

She likes her experience as Lady Macbeth, “when I could be naked, no matter what size I was, and no make-up and my acting spoke for itself”. “There was nothing for people to be distracted by, there was no way for them to say – I don’t like her make-up,” says the actress and adds that it was this role that reminded her in a wonderful way of who she really is.

“When I’m at my most natural, that’s when I feel I can really be looked at,” admits Florence Pugh.

“I’ve come to terms with the complexity of the body that makes me who I am. I’m happy with all the ‘flaws’ I couldn’t even look at when I was 14,” Florence announced this summer after appearing at a Valentino show in sheer pink dress. The outfit didn’t leave much to the imagination, but it did provide plenty of fodder for the haters.

Florence has learned how to react to this from her ex-boyfriend – 21 years older Zach Braff. The two broke up recently, and their big age gap has always attracted a lot of attention.

“Going from no one talking about you to having everyone talking about you is the shocking side of fame,” the actress, who shot to stardom in 2019, told the BBC. Little Women” (Little Women).

By then everyone is talking about her, tabloids and social media are pouring out gossip and “it would be crazy to say it doesn’t affect me – of course it does,” says the star.

However, Zach teaches her not to just read everything.

Florence swallows all the comments about herself to make sure they are all positive. And since this is impossible, she also encounters negative ones, including about their relationship.

“He would say, ‘How did you find that?’ and I would say, ‘I found it.'” “And you found it because you were looking for it,” he taught her.

So Florence realizes that she just shouldn’t dig around and read everything because sooner or later she’s going to find something to hurt her.

“I don’t think that just because you do this, every aspect of your life should be observed and described. You’re not on reality TV,” raged Florence Pugh.
