Macbeth star Florence Pugh on her rivals’ need to be perfect
LADY Macbeth star Florence Pugh has taken a swipe at the bitchier side of the movie business.
The British actress, a nominee for the Bafta EE rising star award, feels the claws come out whenever she auditions across the pond.
‘They’re quite catty, it’s a different ball game over there,’ Florence, 22, exclusively told GP in a pre-Baftas chat. ‘Their thing is to look perfect. When you go over, no matter how much time you spend in the morning, you will always be the runt compared with everyone else.’
Florence, praised for her role in Lady Macbeth, added: ‘You will always be the Brit, which is fun because you’ve got dirty jeans, or hairy legs, or [you’re] sweating, or your hair isn’t curled!’
