Jessica Chastain comes out in support of Florence Pugh.

Florence Pugh, who stirred the Internet with her gorgeous Valentino sheer gown with her nipples on display while she appeared at the Valentino Haute Couture Show in Rome, received a lot of backlash for the dress and was body shamed online, but the actress had things to say as well.

Florence Pugh took to her social media where she shared three pictures of herself in the hot pink Valentino sheer gown and wrote that she knew from the time she wore the sheer gown by Valentino that there were going to be opinions, positive or negative. She just knew that they were coming but added that they knew what they were doing when she put on that dress for the Valentino Haute Couture Show in Rome.

The actress further wrote how easy it is for men to destroy a woman’s body, whether it’s publicly or professionally, and said that it’s not the first time, and it certainly is not going to be the last time a woman will hear a group of strangers talking about her and saying what’s wrong with her body and wonder how vulgar some of the men could be.

Florence Pugh added that now she is grateful that she has finally come to terms with the intricacies of her body, which makes her, her, and she has accepted all the flaws of her that she said she could not bear to look at when she was 14 years old. The actress said in her post that she was lucky enough to grow up among a group of strong, powerful, and curvy women who taught her to love and accept her body the way it is because it’s hers.

The actress gearing up to be seen in Olivia Wilde’s "Don’t Worry Darling" opposite Harry Styles mentioned in her social media post that women are raised to find power in the creases of their bodies and to be loud about being comfortable and added that her mission has always been to say fuck it and fuck that in the industry if she comes across someone who expects her body to be morphed into an opinion of what’s hot or what’s sexually attractive according to them. She later posted a couple more pictures on her stories and wrote that people were terrified of her nips.

Florence Pugh received some of the comments that were: you need care, flat chested, wear a dress that leaves something to the imagination rather than letting the world see your chest, etc. The actress expressed her disappointment in people who aggressively wanted to let her know that they were disappointed to see her ‘tiny tits’ and how ashamed she should be to be ‘flat chested’ before writing that she was excited to wear such a beautiful dress and not a wink of her was nervous. She concluded by saying that people should respect one another, their bodies, and all women and men, and that life will become easier as a result.

Although Florence Pugh received a lot of love and support from the industry and fans for her post as well where people commented that she is a star and sent her heart emojis, Jessica Chastain shared the post and posted it on her Instagram with a powerful message that asked the right question to the men in society. Jessica wrote Why is it so threatening for some men to realize that women can love their bodies without their permission? The actress, who has been vocal about her opinions and stance, added that women do not belong to men.

Regé-Jean Page also came out in support of the actress and shared her post on his story with a message that echoed the same sentiment as Florence Pugh as he wrote, "What is so terrifying?" In reaction to Florence Pugh's post caption, he continued by advising his followers to look within before turning to their friends and to speak up when necessary.

The Bridgerton actor continued the caption and wrote that when boys or men seem out of line, have a word with them adding that one particular aspect of misogyny is that it makes men listen to other men. For this reason, he urged men to speak to other men and predicted that the coming years will be particularly advantageous for men to listen and assume responsibility for the good of all.
