Florence Pugh rose to international prominence after appearing as a despondent American woman in the horror film Midsommar. She is someone who doesn’t like to be told what to do with her body or her dating life. In a recent post, she stood up for herself.

The actor attended the Valentino show in Rome on Friday in a sheer hot-pink gown. She rocked a completely see-through dress, showing off her breasts as part of the ‘Free The Nipple’ movement. Some fans did not like her look and heavily criticized her. Pugh now has a strong reply for them.

Pugh took to Instagram on Sunday, to blast the men who took issue with her attire. In the post, she added three pictures of herself sporting that gown and explained herself. The actress said she was fully aware of what she was doing. She also doesn’t care about what others think of her.

Listen, I knew when I wore that incredible Valentino dress that there was no way there wouldn’t be a commentary on it. Whether it be negative or positive, we all knew what we were doing. 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?

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. 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.

Pugh’s caption was quite lengthy, but she made sure to express herself completely. Soon after, she made the most, fans flocked to the comments section to applaud her for the bravery she displayed. Those who don’t like her are bound to get offended again, and Pugh has made that very clear. You can check out her post below.
