Florence Pugh will be attended by Jessica Chastain.
The Eyes of Tammy Faye actress defended Pugh in a Monday Instagram story after she received body-shaming comments for her sheer, nipple-baring dress at this weekend’s Valentino Haute Couture Show in Rome.
Why does the knowledge that women may love their bodies without asking permission make some men feel so threatened? A reposted image of Pugh hiding her bosom with her fingers was included in the Instagram Story caption by Chastain, 45. She concluded, “We don’t belong to you.”
The Midsommer star responded to her detractors on Instagram on Sunday by posting a response to their criticisms of her appearance and clothing choices.
“Let’s face it, I knew there would undoubtedly be a commentary on that stunning Valentino dress I wore. We were all aware of our actions, whether they were positive or negative “The post’s three images of Florence Pugh, 26, wearing a transparent outfit were captioned.
She continued by talking about “how simple it is for guys to completely damage a woman’s body,” whether it be in front of others or in the course of their employment. “It isn’t the first time and most definitely won’t be the last time a woman will hear what’s wrong with her body from a crowd of strangers,” she said. “What’s worrying is just how disgusting some of you males can be.”
Nevertheless, Pugh said in her essay about how she came to accept her body: “I’m fortunate to have accepted the peculiarities of my body that define who I am. When I was 14 years old, I couldn’t bear to look at any of my “flaws,” but now I’m content with them all.”
Additionally, she expressed “thanks” for the “really strong, powerful, curvy women” in her life who had taught her to appreciate her physical appearance.
“Our bodies’ creases were taught to hold power, according to our upbringing. loudly proclaiming one’s comfort. In my business, it has always been my goal to respond with “f-k it and f-k that” whenever someone expects my appearance to translate into a judgment on what is appealing to the senses or hot.”
Pugh concluded by using the hashtag “#fuckingfreethef-gnipple” before encouraging the naysayers to “grow up” and “respect all women.”
Hollywood bigwigs backed the Don’t Worry Darling actress in a long range of ways.
“Jameela Jamil responded, “Respect,” while Ariana DeBose added, “You’re a magnificent f-ing queen, and we do not deserve you. Period “Pierpaolo Piccioli, the creative director of Valentino, concurred that the message was one of empowerment.
Jessica Chastain, for her part, has no problem speaking up on issues she cares about and defending them on social media.
The Oscar-winning actress “celebrated” Independence Day on July 4 by posting a selfie on Instagram in which she is seen giving the thumbs down in protest of Roe v. Wade’s decision to be overturned. Happy “Independence” Day from me and my reproductive rights, she said as the caption for the picture.
Aside from her association with Planned Parenthood, the Oscar winner has been transparent about her views on abortion rights.
In an interview with The Sunday Times from earlier this year, she stated, “I’m the first person in my family to not be pregnant at the age of 17.” Due to the fact that it gave me options, “Planned Parenthood” had a significant impact on my life.
“The thought of “how do I obtain more stuff in this industry” never even crosses my mind, which makes me sick to admit. Due to the lack of things we had as children, including even food, I grew up with a strong sense of resentment “She said. “I am familiar with the environment because I am from there. It also aggravates me. In addition, I don’t want anyone else to be excluded from anything. Being heard, acknowledged, and respected in terms of a voice.”
