Florence Pugh Reveals Why Her Grandma ‘Gasped’ When She Saw Photos Of Her Granddaughter Going Braless In A See-Through Dress
Last month, she and her mother attended the Valentino Haute Couture fashion show wearing a see-through pink tulle dress, which was custom-made for her by designer Pierpaolo Piccioli.
In a new Harper’s Bazaar cover story published earlier this week, Pugh said that she decided to wear the dress because she is “comfortable” with her body. “I was comfortable with my small breasts,” she said. “And showing them like that — it aggravated [people] that I was comfortable.”
“It was just alarming, how perturbed they were,” the 26-year-old actress continued. “They were so angry that I was confident, and they wanted to let me know that they would never wank over me. Well, don’t.”
She revealed that the amount of attention that her dress got even reached her grandmother. “I went to see my gran, and she goes, ‘So what’s all of this business about your nipples then?’” Pugh said, revealing that she then showed her grandmother the photographs of her in the controversial dress.
“She gasped,” Pugh told the publication. “Because the dress was so beautiful.”
Scarlett Johansson Defends Her Marvel Co-star Amid Backlash
In the Harper’s Bazaar cover story, Scarlett Johansson, who starred with Pugh in the 2021 Marvel movie “Black Widow,” praised Pugh for being “unapologetically herself.”
bout Florence, and why I think she represents her generation in such an iconic way, is that she really is in her own skin. She’s incredibly grounded, but she’s also just so self-assured,” Johansson said.
Pugh was definitely “unapologetically herself” in a sharply worded Instagram post she shared a few days after she posted the photos, condemning her critics.
Florence Pugh Says It’s ‘Worrying’ How ‘Vulgar Some Of You Men Can Be’
In a lengthy Instagram post, the “Little Women” actress admitted that she knew that her dress would command attention after she wore it.
“Listen, I knew when I wore that incredible Valentino dress that there was no way there wouldn’t be a commentary on it,” she began. “Whether it be negative or positive, we all knew what we were doing.”
“It isn’t the first time and certainly won’t be the last time a woman will hear what’s wrong with her body by a crowd of strangers, what’s worrying is just how vulgar some of you men can be,” she continued.
“What’s more concerning is…. Why are you so scared of breasts? Small? Large? Left? Right? Only one? Maybe none?” she continued. “What. Is. So. Terrifying.”
“It makes me wonder what happened to you to be so content on being so loudly upset by the size of my boobs and body..?” she asked.
“I’m very grateful that I grew up in a household with very strong, powerful, curvy women. We were raised to find power in the creases of our body. To be loud about being comfortable,” she explained. “It has always been my mission in this industry to say ‘f— it and f— that’ whenever anyone expects my body to morph into an opinion of what’s hot or sexually attractive.”
She wrapped up her post with the hashtag #f—ingfreethef—ingnipple.”
