The truth about Florence Pugh's relationship with Zach Braff

Actor Florence Pugh wowed fans with her portrayal of Amy March in the Greta Gerwig-directed adaption of Little Women, which premiered in 2019. The U.K.-born star also impressed the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, as in January 2020 she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Pugh didn't take home a trophy (that honor went to Marriage Story's Laura Dern) at the 2020 ceremony on Feb. 9, although she continues to be a hit with her legion of supporters. One of the people in the 24-year-old's corner is actor Zach Braff, who she reportedly began dating in April 2019 after the two worked together on a short film he directed, per Elle. The Scrubs alum is 21 years her senior, which has inspired additional attention to their already high-profile pairing.

For the most part, Pugh and Braff have managed to keep their romance on the DL, and at the time of this writing, neither party has released statements confirming they're dating. But their impressive secrecy doesn't mean we're low on details to share regarding the truth about Florence Pugh's relationship with Zach Braff.

Florence Pugh isn't here for the shade

As we noted before the jump, there's a big age gap between Zach Braff and Florence Pugh. The difference has sparked some criticism on social media, like this commenter who said, "The age gap between Florence Pugh and Zach Braff still creeps me out." Someone else quipped, "The Zach Braff and Florence Pugh age difference kills me." However, Pugh doesn't care what their haters think, as evidenced by her response to a fan on Instagram who ripped the relationship in December 2019. It all went down when a commenter responded to a princess emoji Braff left on one of the Little Women star's photos, writing (via Page Six), "You're 44 years old." Pugh didn't miss a beat with her reply, clapping back,  "and yet he got it." Dang.

The couple appears to be going strong as of February 2020, so it's possible this relationship will go the distance. And hey, it's not like Pugh and Braff are the only celebrities in a relationship with a big age gap.
