    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.

    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.

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

    Florence yells at Timothee for asking if she eats snails

    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.

     "What we don’t realize when we watch a normal film is how many times someone has run in just before a shot quickly to wipe away that sweaty mustache"

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

    8. When she dressed as her own character from Midsommar for Halloween 2019.

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

    Flo sings, "It's okay, little Barry, Mamma's gonna save you" as she trims off the dead part of a cactus

    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"

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

    12. When she offered a fan who recreated her iconic Midsommar dress some style advice for their special day.

    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🤗

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

    13. When she accidentally dragged her voluminous sleeves through ketchup during a Vogue interview.

    14. When she took a page out of Little Women costar Saoirse Ronan's book and shared a quippy way to pronounce her name.

    Like if you were pretending to have a shoot out and you make all the noises yourself.."Pew PEW pew pew" *reloads gun* "pewpewpewpew"...Pugh.

    She told BBC Radio 1 that fans had been meme-ifying it since the Black Widow trailer dropped.

    15. When she turned her freezer into an archive of her attempts at sourdough bread so her mom could taste the progress.

    "When the world lockdown started and it obviously got serious very quickly, I found myself desperate to chop. Feed. Eat. Repeat! It keeps me calm, stirring and creating."

    16. When she spontaneously got a tattoo of a "quite mathematical" worker bee.

    17. And finally, when she told Stephen Colbert that the Orc's lack of a skincare routine in Lord of the Rings used to make her too scared to sleep.

    Florence says that the Lord of the Rings scared her as a kid because all of the Orcs' faces look like they really need some moisturizer
