“Bridgerton” star Nicola Coughlan took to Instagram to ask fans to stop commenting on her appearance. “If you have an opinion about my body please, please don’t share it with me,” Coighlan wrote in the caption of her latest selfie, for which she turned off comments. She explained, “Most people are being nice and not trying to be offensive but I am just one real life human being and it’s really hard to take the weight of thousands of opinions on how you look being sent directly to you every day.” Coughlan said it’s fine for people to have their opinions, “but I beg you not to send it to me directly,” she wrote.

Coughlan has been vocal about the unfair standards that have been placed on her in the spotlight. “It was wild, because I was size 10 filming series one and I got called ‘the big one’!” Coughlan said of “Bridgerton,” per The Irish Times. “I was, like, ‘Are you serious?'” She added, “We try and reduce women to the size of their body, and there’s so much more than that.”

Coughlan also voiced her body-shaming frustrations on Twitter in 2019. “Apropos of nothing but just thinking how it’s mad people who everyone thinks are a size 10 on telly are actually a size 6 IRL.” She continued, “Also people who are actually a size 10 people are immediately called ‘BRAVE PLUS SIZED QUEEN’ and it is just madness.”
