Nicole Coughlan gets candid about nudity on Bridgerton

Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan deflected a question about her body type and baring her body in the hit series.

Speaking exclusively at a fan event in Dublin, the 37-year-old actress gave a cheeky response on being “brave” enough to show her body in the Netflix series.

The actress, who plays Penelope Featherington on Bridgerton, enthused: “You know, I think it is hard because I think women with my body type — women with perfect breasts — we don’t get to see ourselves on screen enough.”

Coughlan further emphasized that she’s “very proud as a member of the perfect breasts community. I hope you enjoy seeing them!”

The actress has been privy to body shaming over the years; in January 2022, Coughlan shut down critics during a candid sit-down with Elle U.K.

She told the magazine that “being famous is like being a dog on the Tube.”

“I went to the pub with my friend a while back and it was like being an animal at the zoo. People just watching and looking. And I remember one time I was taking my Invisalign out, and this person was staring me right in the eyes, which was quite weird. But, honestly, most people are so, so lovely,” she recounted.
