Florence Pugh Addresses the Gender Pay Gap in the Film Industry

Florence Pugh is on the cover of Vogue‘s February 2020 issue, available on newsstands in NY and LA on January 14, and nationwide on January 21.

Here’s what the Little Women star had to say…

On her role as Amy in Little Women: “I love all the incredibly spoiled characters because they always represent that voice in our heads. Amy basically says everything she wants to say. She doesn’t care. So I was obviously ecstatic to play her.”

On the gender pay gap in the film industry: “Hey? This cannot be a thing. They’re actually making a reason for women to talk in films now. When a woman speaks, she’s going to have something to say.”

On her role as Katherine in Lady MacBeth: “This unusual, powerful role, Pugh says, gave her insight into the kind of actor she wanted to be. “I like feeling raw. I like feeling naked. Anytime an opportunity of me being perfect onscreen comes up, I panic.”
