    17 Times Florence Pugh Proved We Don't Deserve Her

    Florence, if you're reading this, please bring back Cooking with Flo.

    You probably know actor Florence Pugh from her iconic role as Amy March in Little Women or as Dani Ardor in Midsommar.

    The 2019 films basically launched her into the mainstream spotlight. She's since been nominated for an Academy Award and appeared on the cover of Vogue.

    Or, you might know her from her Instagram Stories, which have basically become the new Happiest Place on Earth.

    Basically, Florence is a wonderful human being and I would argue that the positivity she radiates is more than any of us deserve.

    Here are just some of the times Florence Pugh was an absolute icon.

    1. When she brought her Instagram followers into her kitchen for Cooking with Flo.

    Honestly, who needs the Food Network when Flo is there to teach you everything you need to know?

    2. When she taught Little Women co-star Timothée Chalamet that snails are friends, not food.

    During a cast interview with Hits Radio, she told him that snails were "so beautiful" before describing how they lay their eggs.

    3. When she showed off her lyrical genius with her debut single, "Blah Blah Blah."

    4. When she gently put things into perspective for the Instagram haters who left mean comments regarding her relationship.

    Florence says, “It makes me sad that during this time when we really all need to be together...  a few of you decided to bully for no reason”

    5. When she modeled the proper way to wear a travel pillow.

    6. When she used wiping off a sweat mustache to illustrate the film industry's complicity in unrealistic beauty standards.

    "As beautiful as cinema is, it’s a massive part of the problem of why we look at ourselves in the way we do," she told Guardian.

    7. When she shared her best dance moves to encourage her followers to shake off their quarantine stress.

    In the 2019 horror film, she played Dani, a young woman who travels to Sweden with her friends and finds herself trapped in a cult.

    9. When she did surgery on a cactus and sang him an apologetic song during the entire operation.

    She compared her new plant to accidentally putting an apple down and finding it with a strange alien-like growth months later.

    10. When, instead of letting a production team that pressured her to lose weight harm her sense of self-worth, she decided that she "didn't want to do that kind of work" again.

    “I did a job where it was made very apparent that I needed to lose weight [by the team working on the production] and when it was over, I was very aware I didn’t want to do that kind of work"

    She told Glamour UK, "Because I was faced with that, I realized what I wanted to represent, and had that not happened, I may not have overcome my issues with my body at such an early age."

    11. When she made marmalade that looked so delicious it got the attention of the orange marmalade-loving children's book character Paddington Bear.

    Yes yes yes YES! And when you’re done with it all you need to do is fold it neatly and save it for your wedding day🤗 https://t.co/GwQmJNeazP

    Maybe, if the amateur costumer dresses as Amy March next, Florence will recommend it as a red carpet look.
