Florence Pugh Shares a Few Rare Details About Her Relationship With Zach Braff

Florence Pugh and Zach Braff were always one of those “notoriously private” celebrity couples, but now that they've broken up, Pugh seems almost ready to talk about it. In her cover interview with Vogue, the actor shares a rare glimpse at the details of the relationship and how she's feeling in its aftermath. 

You may remember that Pugh and Braff got a lot of side eye when the relationship first went public, mostly due to the fact that Braff is 21 years older than Pugh. “We weren’t in anyone’s faces. It was just that people didn’t like it,” she told Vogue. “They imagined me with someone younger and someone in blockbusters. I think young relationships in Hollywood are so easily twisted because they add to the gossip sites. It’s exciting to watch. And I think I was in a relationship that didn’t do any of that.”

The article goes on to explain how the pair were first introduced by friends, and then hunkered together at Braff's house in LA during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020. 

They may have broken up, but Braff has nothing but praise for Pugh as an actor. “I quite simply think she’s one of the greatest actors of her generation,” he said. “She’s just magnetic. You cannot take your eyes off of her. And it’s not just her beauty and it’s not just her acting ability, it’s that thing, that magic thing that transcends the screen, where anyone and everyone goes: I want to see whatever this person does.”

Florence Pugh announced that the couple had split in an August 2022 interview with Harper's Bazaar, explaining, “We’ve been trying to do this separation without the world knowing, because it’s been a relationship that everybody has an opinion on.”
