The actor was in São Paulo, Brazil, promoting her latest film Dune: Part Two on a panel alongside her co-stars Timothée Chalamet, Austin Butler and Zendaya on Sunday (December 3).

But the panel certainly didn't come without its hitches as an object hit her in the face as the cast members and director Denis Villeneuve posed for pictures before they made their way off the stage at the event.

Pugh's fellow star checked to see if the Oscar-nominated actor was alright after the scary incident.

Before all of that, Pugh said on the panel how she felt 'really, really special being' involved in a Dune sequel.

"I had an amazing time coming in and just hanging around with these people, let alone actually getting to work with them," the star 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."

However, the talk of the town was very much of the flying object hitting Pugh in the face, with many condemning the act which has seemingly become a trend in recent months.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, one user penned: "Fans recent behaviors is disturbing."

A second added: "It’s going to get to the point where people do not want to do live events or concerts ... if they have to be worried about people throwing stuff at them and getting hurt."

While a third remarked: "Not cool... hopefully they got rid of whoever was responsible."

It's not clear if the person was removed after the incident.

The disturbing incident marked the latest in a trend where celebrities are being pelted by objects launched from a crowd.

It comes after R&B singer Ari Lennox was recently struck by a bottle thrown by a fan while opening for Rod Wave's Nostalgia tour at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles.

Lennox immediately stopped her set and threatened to 'f**k up' the person responsible.

“I’ll f**k you up,” she told the crowd, as per TMZ.

“Who did it? Who the f**k did it? I don’t play that s**t. I’m a real a** b**ch and I will f**k your s**t all the way the f**k up."

“Don’t you ever disrespect a beautiful Black woman on the f**king stage like that. I’m going to f**k you up," the singer said before a security guard escorted her off the stage.
