Florence Pugh Reveals How She Feels About All the Scrutiny Over Zach Braff Relationship

Florence Pugh is speaking out about her relationship with Zach Braff and the scrutiny she has felt over their age gap.

The 24-year-old actress and 45-year-old actor were first linked in April of 2019 after they were seen holding hands and she has publicly defended the relationship several times since.

Now, Florence is speaking out about the scrutiny she has felt.

“I’ve always found it funny, how I can be good enough for people to watch my work and support my work and pay for tickets and I’m old enough to be an adult and pay taxes but I’m not old enough to know who I should and should not have sex with,” Florence said on the “Speaking on Sue Perkins’ An Hour Or So With” podcast.

She added, “Once again, it’s making a young woman feel like s**t for no reason.”

“I think I did feel s**t for awhile for admitting that, and then I thought how ridiculous is that? I’m 24 and I can’t choose who I love,” Florence continued. “There’s a reason why I’m not with someone my age – it hasn’t worked, so who are you trying to match me up with?”

Find out what Florence and Zach have been doing during quarantine.

Scarlett Johansson's Marvel Baton Being Handed To Florence Pugh in 'Black Widow'

The Black Widow baton is being handed over from Scarlett Johansson to Florence Pugh.

In a recent interview with Empire magazine, director Cate Shortland opened up about how the upcoming Marvel movie will serve as a baton passing, of sorts between Natasha and Florence‘s Yelena.

“[Kevin Feige] realized that the audience would expect an origin story so, of course, we went in the opposite direction,” she shared. “We didn’t know how great Florence Pugh would be. We knew she would be great, but we didn’t know how great.”

Cate added, “Scarlett is so gracious, like, ‘Oh, I’m handing her the baton.’ So it’s going to propel another female storyline.”

The director also opened up about how Black Widow will also be a proper goodbye to Natasha Romanoff, as fans weren’t exactly happy with how the character left in Avengers: Endgame.

“In Endgame, the fans were upset that Natasha did not have a funeral. Whereas Scarlett, when I spoke to her about it, said Natasha wouldn’t have wanted a funeral,” Cate said. “She’s too private, and anyway, people don’t really know who she is.”

“So what we did in this film was allow the ending to be the grief the individuals felt, rather than a big public outpouring. I think that’s a fitting ending for her.”

Black Widow is expected to open in theaters on November 6th.

Florence Pugh Recognizes Her Own Complicity in Cultural Appropriation: 'Stupid Doesn't Even Cut It

Florence Pugh has opened up in a lengthy statement on social media, where she admits she was complicit in cultural appropriation for years before she finally realized what she was doing.

The Little Women star revealed she got corn rows when she was 18 and after a conversation with a photographer friend, learned what cultural appropriation was.

“The history and heartbreak over how when Black girls do it they’re mocked and judged, but when white girls for it, it’s only then perceived as cool,” Florence writes. “It was true. I could see how Black culture was being so obviously exploited. I was defensive and confused, white fragility coming out plain and simple.”

She went on, opening up about her Henna phase after being taught about the history behind it through an Indian shop owner.

“I thought because I was taught about it differently, I was an exception…I actually wasn’t being respectful in how I was using it,” she admits.

Florence adds of her past actions, “Stupid doesn’t even cut it. I was uneducated. I was unread.”

“I’m truly sorry to all of you that were offended for years or even just recently. I cannot dismiss the actions I bought into years ago, but I believe that we who were blind to such things must acknowledge them and recognize them as our faults, our ignorance and our white privilege and I apologize profusely that it took this long.”

Florence isn’t the first to recognize her white privilege. These other stars have as well…

Florence Pugh & Zach Braff Have Been Singing During Quarantine

Florence Pugh is opening up about what she and boyfriend Zach Braff are doing while in quarantine and it’s incredibly relatable.

Turns out the Hollywood couple are singing to get through the lockdown.

“We’re in the hills [Hollywood Hills] at the moment and one of our good friends is really ill and in a coma in hospital,” Florence shared during her appearance on Table Manners with Jessie Ware. “And so what we’re doing, because it’s got all of this old hippy history (people play music from the hills that have been written here). We play it during the day, or in the afternoon or in the evening. So that’s kind of our tradition.”

Your own neighborhood might have adopted a “Play on the Porch” initiative, and Florence and Zach have put their own spin on that.

“It’s mainly in the evening and especially on the weekend,” she added. “Every Saturday, they do these isolated gigs on the top of people’s roofs. There will be like a singer singing one song over there and then another singer will be singing one song over there, so it’s really beautiful.”

Florence adds, “You can go out on your front porch and listen to all of the music in the hills. I haven’t seen any famous people giving the concert just yet, but lots of lovely singing.”

If you missed it, Florence recently clapped back at online haters about her relationship with Zach.

Florence Pugh Was 'So Surprised' to Learn This About Herself While in Lockdown

Florence Pugh is on the cover of Elle UK‘s June 2020 issue, out on Thursday (May 7).

Here’s what the 24-year-old Little Women star had to say…

On when the Black Widow cast was revealed at San Diego’s Comic-Con: “I was scared because my Russian accent was going to be out there and I didn’t know what it sounded like. I’m also playing a character who no one’s seen before but they’ve read about her; I didn’t know whether people were going to hate me. We [Scarlett Johansson] both stood there and I instantly had clammy, sweaty hands. Scarlett gave me her hand and we squeezed each other, and she also had clammy hands! And then I was like, ‘Oh, this never gets old. This is just as powerful [for you] and you’re their legend.’”

On being in the ‘right’ shape for the role: “When I got the job, I wanted to know what the regime was. I wanted to know whether it was them or me calling the shots. That was a big deal for me. I didn’t want to be part of something where I was constantly checked on. And people making sure I was in the ‘right’ shape. That’s not me at all.”

On what she’s learnt about herself in lockdown in LA: “I was so surprised by how unkind I am to myself! Living in lockdown I found there’s no point or energy in being annoyed at yourself for not reading that book, writing that song or working out that day. I’m teaching myself to find joy as much as I can and ease in these open long days. Cooking has been my saviour! When the world lockdown started and it obviously got serious very quickly, I found myself desperate to chop. Feed. Eat. Repeat!”

She also opened up about her relationship with boyfriend Zach Braff. See what she said!

Florence Pugh Defends Relationship With Zach Braff: 'People Have No Right to Educate Me on My Private Life'

Florence Pugh is getting candid about dating Zach Braff.

“I have the right to hang out and be with and go out with anyone I want to. I’ve always found this part of what people do really bizarre. I’m an actor because I like acting and I don’t mind people watching my stuff, but people have no right to educate me on my private life,” she said of their relationship.

“I know that part of being in the spotlight is that people might invade your privacy and have opinions on it, but it’s bizarre that normal folk are allowed to display such hate and opinions on a part of my life that I’m not putting out there. It’s a strange side of fame that you’re allowed to be torn apart by thousands of people even though you didn’t put that piece of you out there. My point to all this is that isn’t it odd that a stranger can totally tear apart someone’s relationship and it’s allowed?”
