Florence Pugh is setting the record straight about those viral photos of her with Will Poulter.
The Little Women star, 26, shut down rumours that she was supposedly dating her Midsommar co-star, 29, after paparazzi snaps emerged of the pair hanging out at a beach in Ibiza.
“Ooookay. Man. This is getting a little silly now. No, Will Poulter and I are not dating,” she wrote via her Instagram Story on Tuesday.

“We went to the beach with our friends, who are always about a half a metre away from us in every picture, but have been cleverly cut out/ framed out so that it looks otherwise. You can LITERALLY see my best friend in the corner of so many shots and Archie’s arms at the sides.”
She continued, “I understand that the nature of this job is that you sometimes get your privacy completely bulldozed by paparazzi, but to fabricate this stuff actually does more damage than good. Thanks for saying we look sexy..doesn’t mean we’re doing the sexy.”

Pugh then shared the pap pics and pointed out how her friend “who came on holiday with me” had been cropped out of a photo while Poulter was edited to “look like his face was on my chest.”

“Another note, a very important note. There’s no need to drag people through this,” she added in another post.
“Regardless of your opinion on who I should or shouldn’t be with, at the end of the day, if you’re complimenting someone by trolling another person…you’re just bullying. There’s literally no need to be horrible online- no need.”
“Think about what you write. Think about who it affects,” Pugh concluded before uploading more photos from the group beach trip.
Pugh’s been linked to Scrubs star Zach Braff, 47, since 2018. It is unknown if the pair are in fact still together as they have both deleted several photos of each other on their respective Instagram accounts.
Last month, Pugh shared a sweet tribute to Braff for his 47th birthday, but the post has now disappeared.
