Florence Pugh attends the British Independent Film Awards 2022 at Old Billingsgate on December 04, 2022 in London, England. Zach Braff attends the A Sense of Home Gala and Silent Art Auction honoring Deborra-lee Furness and Hugh Jackman on November 17, 2022 in Los Angeles, California.

Florence Pugh is opening up about people’s negative opinions about her past relationship with Scrubs star Zach Braff. Pugh, 27, and Braff, 47, (he turns 48 in April) first sparked romance rumors back in April 2019 when they were spotted holding hands in New York City. The PDA followed their collaboration on his 2019 short film, In the Time It Takes to Get There. The couple left hints about their status on social media in the months that followed, but they didn’t confirm being a couple until December 2019. The two chose to keep their relationship mostly private and rarely shared photos of them together on social media because of constant trolls.

However, the Don’t Worry Darling star said “people didn’t like” the relationship in a new interview with Vogue published Thursday (January 12). “We weren’t in anyone’s faces. It was just that people didn’t like it,” she told the outlet. “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.”

Despite the relationship being over, it seems as though the former couple hold no hard feelings for each other, as they just complete a project together. Braff wrote the movie A Good Person, which stars Pugh and Morgan Freemon, in theaters on March 24. Pugh also recently celebrated her 27th birthday on January 3 and Braff wished her a happy birthday and called her a “legend.”

It’s unclear when Pugh and Braff ended their relationship. The actress confirmed the split for the first time during an interview for Harper’s Bazaar. “We’ve been trying to do this separation without the world knowing because it’s been a relationship that everybody has an opinion on,” Pugh said at the time. “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. I automatically get a lumpy throat when I talk about it.”
