  • Florence Pugh says management tried to change her appearance early in her career.
  • The star was told to lose weight and change her “look”.
  • Pugh initially thought he had made a mistake in joining the film industry.

“Don’t Worry Darling” star Florence Pugh has recently become one of the most popular stars in the world thanks to her roles in “Outlaw King,” “Midsommar,” “Little Women,” and “Black Widow.” But her career started back in 2014 when she starred in “The Falling” opposite “Game of Thrones” alum Maisie Williams.

But when Pugh got her first role, she was told by the authorities that she needed to lose weight and change her image if she wanted to succeed. The actor spoke to The Telegraph where he recalled his experience at the start of the project.

The British star explained that at the age of 19 he went to the United States to try new TV shows, and was cast in the failed pilot, “Studio City,” as an aspiring singer. But the officials involved in the work wanted him to change his appearance as part of the work.

Pugh said: “All the things they tried to change about me – whether it was my weight, my appearance, the shape of my face, the shape of my eyebrows – it was not what I wanted to do, or the industry. I wanted to work.”

The actor felt like he knew what to expect after starring in “The Falling,” but the difference was surprising to him.

Pugh continued: “I thought the movie business was going to be like [my experience of making] ‘Falling,’ but really, this is what the top of the game looks like, and I realized that I was very wrong. “

The show never got past the pilot stage and Pugh returned to the UK, where he became the lead in William Oldroyd’s “Lady Macbeth”, which rekindled the actor’s love of film.

He added: “It made me fall in love with film again – the kind of film that was a place where you could say it loud and clear, and I’ve been doing that.”

Pugh’s career has grown since then, most recently starring in Olivia Wilde’s “Don’t Worry Darling” alongside Harry Styles, Chris Pine, Gemma Chan, and Nick Kroll. It was rumored that Pugh clashed with Wilde on the film over the director’s relationship with Styles, which reportedly culminated in a shouting match.

The star will also appear in Netflix’s period drama, “The Wonder,” as well as Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer” and “Dune: Part Two” in 2023.
