Florence Pugh Flinches in Shock as She Gets Hit in Face During 'Dune 2' Panel at CCXP

The 'Don't Worry Darling' actress is posing with her co-stars, including Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya and Austin Butler, onstage when something hits her in the eye.

AceShowbiz - Florence Pugh has become the latest victim of an increasingly disturbing trend where fans throw things at star onstage. The actress was hit in the face by a flying object during an appearance at CCXP 2023 in Brazil.

The 27-year-old attended the panel for "Dune: Part Two" panel with her co-stars, including Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya Coleman and Austin Butler, as well as director Denis Villeneuve on Sunday, December 3. As their segment came to a close, the entire cast and the filmmaker posed together for pictures.

In videos capturing the incident which have circulated online, they were all smiles until Pugh got startled by a thing thrown by an audience member at her direction. She appeared to shout "wow" or "ow" before putting her hand to the eye that was hit.

The "Oppenheimer" star then leaned over to pick up the object, but it was not clear what it was that hit her. Timothee and Austin, who was standing right next to her, also expressed shock in the moment and appeared to show concern for Pugh, while Zendaya and Villeneuve seemingly missed the moment as they were engaged in conversation.

Pugh's reps have not commented on the incident. The actress and her co-stars were at the Comic Con event in Sao Paulo to promote their upcoming sci-fi sequel.

Moments before the incident, the British actress spoke about her excitement to be part of the panel. "I had an amazing time coming in and just hanging around with these people, let alone actually getting to work with them," she said. "Coming in here - the power in this room - is because of that first movie, and we felt that when we went on set every single day. So it feels really, really special being here with the second one."

The incident happened despite multiple warnings from other performers about hurling objects at them. During her "Eras Tour" stop in Buenos Aires, Taylor Swift paused her performance to tell her fans, "It really freaks me out when stuff gets thrown on the stage. Because if it's on the stage then a dancer can trip on it. I love that you brought presents and that is so nice, but just can you please not throw them on the stage. I love you so much."
