Florence Pugh Confirms Her Breakup with Zach Braff
Florence Pugh confirmed she and Zach Braff quietly broke up in early 2022 after nearly three years of dating.
“We’ve been trying to do this separation without the world knowing because it’s been a relationship that everyone has an opinion on,” Pugh said in her September 2022 cover story, which was released Tuesday. “We just felt that doing something like this would give us the advantage of not having millions of people telling us how pleased they are that we aren’t together.” So that’s what we did. When I talk about it, I get a lump in my throat.”
Throughout their relationship, the “Don’t Worry, Darling” actor, 26, frequently reacted to the criticism she and the “Scrubs” alum, 47, endured due to their age difference.
Pugh told the magazine that she believes she should not be judged based on her word choice.
“Whenever I feel that boundary has been crossed in my life, whether it’s paparazzi taking private moments or moments that aren’t even real, or gossip channels encouraging members of the public to share private moments of famous individuals strolling down the street,” she remarked.
“I don’t believe that people should be monitored and written about in every part of their lives simply because they have this profession.” We haven’t agreed to appear on a reality television show.”
Braff has not officially addressed their breakup.
