Florence Pugh slams troll who criticized 21-year age gap romance with Zach Braff

It's no secret that Little Women actress Florence Pugh and former Scrubs star Zach Braff are an item - but it turns out that not everyone approves of the couple's 21-year age gap.

Recently, in fact, the Midsommar actress took to Instagram to post a photo of herself standing outside Greenblatt’s Deli & Fine Wines in Los Angeles. “First pit-stop, Matzo Ball soup. #curingjetlag101,” Pugh captioned the shot.

Braff responded to the photo with a princess emoji, to which an Instagram user replied: “you’re 44 years old.”

But it didn't take long for the British actress to hit back, telling the individual: “and yet he got it.”

According to People magazine, the pair were first seen together back in April. And then earlier this month, the couple appeared separately at the New York premiere of Little Women, in which Pugh stars along with Atonement actress Saoirse Ronan and The King actor Timothée Chalamet.

Florence Pugh and Timothée Chalamet recently sat down with VT to promote their new movie Little Women:

“I remember when I first told my friends that I was playing Amy [in Little Women], they were like, ‘Oh, that’s the one I hate,’ which is fine, because that’s the only thing that we’ve known her for,” Pugh told IndieWire about the role. “We haven’t given her drive. We’ve never seen her with creativity. She’s never had to argue as to why she needs to marry rich.”

In November, Pugh and Braff attended the Marriage Story premiere in New York, where again they were spotted separately on the red carpet.

The pair recently teamed up for Braff’s short film In the Time It Takes to Get There. It starred Pugh and Clueless actress Alicia Silverstone.

And per Collider, Braff will be directing the upcoming film The Secret Ingredients of Rocket Cola, in which Pugh will star.

Braff's last high-profile relationship was with Taylor Bagley, according to People. They called it quits in 2014 after five years of dating.
