Facts about Florence Pugh.
Instinctive, maybe this is a good word to start talking about the English actress Florence Pugh, but many others are necessary and, maybe, insufficient. With a strong voice, and an even stronger presence, Pugh has become one of those powerful women she admired growing up.
When Pugh was 17 yo at a private school in Oxford, she auditioned for Carol Morley's film The Falling, then it took about 7 years of acting in small roles until The Little Drummer Girl came to her. Over time, like a meteor, she had roles in Fighting With My Family, Midsommar, Little Women, and finally Black Widow. More than 20 movies in the Marvel Universe later, this is only the second focused on a heroine, and it will be up to Yelena Belova, Pugh's character, to continue in Natasha Romanoff's footsteps. 🕷
Very well received by the public and critics, Pugh proves again why she became one of the most important actresses of the new gen at the age of 25, being nominated for an Academy Award in 2020 for her role in Little Women. In addition to acting, all you have to do is look at her Instagram feed to want to invite her to a pub or borrow a jacket or a leather boot.
Here are 5 other things you need to know about your new bestie Florence Pugh.
Plant person, dog person. 🌵
The actress is so fond of plants, especially succulents, that she gives them names. She works hard to keep them alive, as reported in this tweet, performing surgery on her cactus Barry. But with other living beings, she is luckier, especially with dogs. Pugh is an outspoken dog person and shares several moments with Houdini, Albert, and Flo (the chicken) on her Instagram.
Ecologically Conscious. ♻
It's also on her Instagram that Pugh talks about the causes she believes in. Whether it's women's rights, black lives, or voting, she speaks openly about them. Environment is also among these topics, Pugh posted about the search for a recyclable bikini, as she understands that it's important to know where the things we wear come from. And speaking of that, the actress is a loyal consumer — or favorite face — of leather pieces by Louis Vuitton and Prada, which, as we know, work with sustainable initiatives.
The right body is yours. 🧘♀️
Pugh revealed that she suffered a lot of aesthetic pressure when she was starting and received numerous unpleasant comments about her weight on social media. She learned to deal with this by thinking that it's with her body that she does what she loves most, acting, and started to use social media as honestly as possible.

Prada lover. 🌹
To other brands, we're sorry, but it looks like Prada exists for Florence Pugh. In her chill, confident style, naturally the coolest you've ever seen, the actress walks around in dresses, jackets, and especially leather boots of the brand. She doesn't take her boots off her feet and manages to create a red carpet fit with brutal shoes, making her own rules, and we appreciate it.
She does cooking live streams. 🥦
Yes, there's still that. Pugh tells Vogue that her father is a house cook, and that they end up forming a family that specializes in serving and entertaining. And, as we can see when she decides to start cooking and streaming live for her followers on Instagram, she does it very well and naturally.
She has been delivering her own comic book-worthy beauty looks, with lines as powerful as she is.
