"Nicola Coughlan of 'Bridgerton' fame" - She effectively answers a doubtful statement.

"Netflix's hit series 'Bridgerton' has been in the spotlight once more, this time for celebrating actress Nicola Coughlan's (37) response to what many see as a hidden body shaming comment. In the third season, Coughlan's character Penelope takes the lead alongside Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton, 31). The show also includes quite graphic sex scenes. And season three's second half, airing on June 13, promises even more of them.

A 'sneaky comment'?

At an event, someone remarked how 'brave' it was of Coughlan to play Penelope. Some thought this could be a 'sneaky comment' meant for slimmer or conventionally attractive actresses. Fans of the show were smitten by the actress's reaction, describing her as an 'icon' or 'queen' on various platforms. The comment was, "You know, it's hard because I think women like us, with our bodies, aren't..." She didn't complete her sentence before the audience erupted in applause.

Proud of her 'perfect breasts'

Coughlan seemed content with her physique. She said, "I'm proud to be part of the 'perfect breasts' club. And I hope you all enjoy seeing them!" The actress also insisted on ensuring the explicit scenes made it to the big screen. She even added more of them to the script. Discussing this decision with 'Stylist' magazine, Coughlan mentioned, "It was a massive 'F*** you!' to all the hateful critics judging my body. It was empowering and amazing." #icon-image
