Florence Pugh Explains Why “People Didn’t Like” Her Relationship with Zach Braff

Despite keeping their three-year relationship completely out of the spotlight, Florence Pugh and Zach Braff frequently found themselves the subject of negative comments and tabloid headlines. And in her new cover interview for Vogue‘s Winter issue, the actor once again addressed the public’s problem with her private life.

Pugh said of her previous relationship, “We weren’t in anyone’s faces. It was just that people didn’t like it. ” She continued, «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. »

Braff also spoke to the magazine for the story and had nothing but effusive compliments for his ex-girlfriend. “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. ” The director added, “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. ”

All of this comes after Pugh revealed in August that she and her boyfriend of three years had quietly broken up earlier that year. In the cover story for Harper’s Bazaar‘s September 2022 issue, the Don’t Worry Darling star told the magazine, “We’ve been trying to do this separation without the world knowing, because it’s been a relationship that everybody has an opinion on. We just felt something like this would really do us the benefit of not having millions of people telling us how happy they are that we’re not together. So we’ve done that. ” She said, “I automatically get a lumpy throat when I talk about it. ”

Pugh also noted that just because her job is very public doesn’t mean her personal life is also up for discussion.

“Whenever I feel like that line has been crossed in my life, whether it’s paparazzi taking private moments, or moments that aren’t even real, or gossip channels that encourage members of the public to share private moments of famous people walking down the street, I think it’s incredibly wrong,” she told Harper’s Bazaar at the time. “I don’t think that people, just because they have this job, that every aspect of their life should be watched and written about. We haven’t signed up for a reality TV show. ”
