In a brand new interview, Zach Braff gushed over his ‘intelligent and articulate’ younger girlfriend, Florence Pugh, after the 24 year old fiercely defended their 21 year age gap from haters. Furthermore, the man also revealed why he ‘chose not to’ address it himself.
It sounds like Zach Braff is head over heels with his partner, Florence Pugh, and he also has a lot of respect for her as a human being in general!
All of this and more, became very clear during his interview for Mr Porter.
The Scrubs alum shared during that chat that he could not be any more proud of his girlfriend and of how she addressed the hate they have been receiving for having such a big age gap.
The Little Women Oscar nominee apparently ‘literally sat down, hit record on her phone and said that,’ in response to all the criticism they would see in the comment section.
‘I thought: how could I possibly follow anything as intelligent and articulate as that? So, I chose not to,’ he went on to rave about Florence, also explaining why he did not clap back at the haters as well.
As for what she said at the time, the actress shared in the clip that ‘Within about 8 minutes of that photo being posted, I had about seventy percent of the comments hurling abuse and being horrid and basically bullying someone on my page. I don’t need you to tell me who I should and shouldn’t love, and I would never in my life, tell someone who they can and can’t love. It isn’t your place. It has nothing to do with you.’
The star was visibly upset about the situation so it makes sense she could not help but say her piece.
After that post, she received a lot of praise, including from Ariana Grande who commented: ‘Oh i love and appreciate u so much.’
