Florence Pugh calls the reaction “horrible” to her breakup with Zach Braff
The “Black Widow” star, 26, and the “Scrubs” ex, 47, who started dating in 2019, received lots of feedback on their 21-year age gap despite repeatedly telling everyone to mind their own business.
But the conversation raised its head once again this week when Pugh was photographed on vacation with his “Midsommar” co-star Will Poulter in Ibiza, fueling speculation that he called her with Braff.
“It’s getting a little silly now. No, Will Poulter and I are not dating, “the Little Women star posted Tuesday on Instagram Stories.” We went to the beach with our friends, who in every photo are always half a meter from us, but they are been cleverly cropped / framed so that it looks different. “
“You can LITERALLY see my best friend in so many shots and Archie’s arms on the sides,” Pugh said in his post, before sharing the uncropped photos from his vacation. “I understand the nature of this job is that sometimes your privacy is completely destroyed by the paparazzi, but making these things actually does more harm than good. Thanks for saying we look sexy .. it doesn’t mean we’re being sexy.
The Oscar nominee went on to point out various other friends who were also on vacation at the beach, including her “best friend” Olive, with whom she “actually cuddled for hours on this bed.”
Pugh then appeared to address fans who were cheerfully celebrating rumors of his breakup with the “Garden State” star, though he didn’t explicitly say if they were still together. Last month, her shared a sweet greeting for Braff’s birthday.
After photos of Pugh and Poulter hit the internet, many started cheering openly for them as a couple at Braff’s expense.
“Florence Pugh going from this Zach Braff to Will Poulter is one of the biggest updates in history,” wrote one person, while another described Braff as a “fossil man”.
“There is no need to drag people into all of this. Regardless of your opinion of who I should or shouldn’t be, at the end of the day if you’re complimenting someone by trolling another person … you’re just being bullying, “Pugh wrote.” You literally don’t have to be. horrible online, no need. “
“Think about what you write”, he concluded. “Think about who it hits.”
While Braff remained silent on the matter, Poulter echoed his former co-star’s message, adding in his own post: “Thank you for reporting bullying when you see it.”
Last year, Pugh offered a theory about why her love affair with Braff “bothers people”.
“That’s not what they expected,” she told the Sunday Times, noting that her fans assumed she could date a Timothée Chalamet guy. “But it’s my life and I’m not doing anything to please people or to make a better title or story out of it. I want to be a person too! “
