She Reportedly Had to Do CrossFit

"Crossfit is a strength and conditioning program that focuses on everything from coordination to power through an assortment of randomized physical challenges. From box jumps and kettlebell swings to push-ups and lunges, Crossfit strives to provide a total-body, integrated approach to fitness through exercises that are based on the movement patterns of everyday life," says ACE Fitness.


She Loves On-Screen Combat

For her role in Black Widow: "Essentially you need to look good moving. For me, I loved all of that because I grew up with a lot of dance and a lot of movement. I was always fighting my brother [actor and musician Toby Sebastian], so I find all of that combat stuff so exciting. Once you've put it on camera you've got to know how to make it look right and that's a whole different beast," she told Elle UK.


She Didn't Want to be Monitored For the Role

"When I got the job, I wanted to know what the regime was," she told Elle about Black Widow. "I wanted to know whether it was them or me calling the shots. That was a big deal for me. I didn't want to be part of something where I was constantly checked on. And people making sure I was in the 'right' shape. That's not me at all." She added:  "Scarlett had this amazing guy who cooked beautiful things for her and her team. I thought that was clever because you're doing fitness all the time and you need to have someone who's on top of what you're eating and the nutrients you're getting. I remember her asking, 'Why are you cooking for yourself? Just let us feed you!' And I was like, 'Nope.'" 


She Says This About Body Image

"I did a job where it was made very apparent that I needed to lose weight and when it was over, I was very aware I didn't want to do that kind of work," she told Glamour. "Because I was faced with that, I realized what I wanted to represent, and had that not happened, I may not have overcome my issues with my body at such an early age. I'm happy about that, but a lot of women aren't that lucky."


She Had Tracheomalacia As a Kid

Pugh has a signature raspy voice due to tracheomalacia as a kid. "Tracheomalacia is a rare condition that happens when the cartilage of the windpipe, or trachea, is soft, weak and floppy. This can cause the tracheal wall to collapse and block the airway, making it hard to breathe," says Cedars-Sinai. "Tracheomalacia can have no symptoms, especially if the condition is very mild. However, the more the airway is blocked, the more severe the symptoms are. Symptoms of tracheomalacia are often attributed to other conditions, such as emphysema or asthma."
