Actress Florence Pugh almost lost an eye because of a fan's antics: the moment was caught on video
On December 3, the cast of the second part of the sci-fi film Dune attended the Comic-Con festival in São Paulo, Brazil. At a conference dedicated to the film, a strange incident occurred: a fan threw an object at the face of the famous British actress Florence Pugh.
Theunknown person hit the 27-year-old star squarely in the eye and almost crippled her. The moment was captured on a video that was shared online, Deadline reports.
Florence was standing next to her co-stars Timothy Chalamet, Austin Butler, and Zendaya. They all flinched in a second and got very scared. The actors looked embarrassed, and Pugh herself covered her injured eye with her hand. Then she bent down to pick up and take a closer look at the object that had been shot at her.
After that, the video cuts off, so viewers can no longer see what exactly hit the actress in the eye. Pugh did not comment on the incident on her social media, but according to the source, the celebrity escaped serious injury.
It is worth noting that such incidents with stars are not uncommon. Fans either try to draw attention to themselves or deliberately or unknowingly harm their idols. For example, the American singer Pink performed in London in June, where she had a strange and even somewhat creepy incident. Right in the middle of the concert, one of the audience members threw a bag of his late mother's ashes at the artist.
In addition, a video was posted online where the singer Bebe Rexha was attacked during a performance and knocked down with a phone. The gadget broke the artist's eyebrow. Later, she shared photos of how her face was damaged.
