Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan is going viral for getting something off her chest, about her chest.

According to fan video of a Q&A event in Dublin, the actress got the crowd cheering when she gave a cheeky response to a journalist who called her “very brave” for literally showing so much of herself as Penelope Featherington in the bodice-ripping Netflix series.

“You know, it is hard because I think women with my body type — women with perfect breasts — we don’t get to see ourselves onscreen enough,” the 37-year-old said through cheers.

“And I’m very proud as a member of the perfect breasts community,” she added. “I hope you enjoy seeing them.”

In a cover article for Stylist, the Irish actress recently addressed all the commentary on her body that surrounds her work on the series. “It’s insulting because I worked hard on this show; a year of fittings and dance lessons and shooting, I barely saw my family, I gave it my absolute all,” Coughlan said.

“And then I start doing press and all people want to talk about is my body? It’s so f******* disappointing and reductive.”
