Florence Pugh Explains Why She And Zach Braff Kept Their Breakup a Secret

Florence Pugh is opening up about her breakup with Zach Braff.

Why They Kept Things Private

The 26-year-old Don’t Worry Darling actress and the 47-year-old Cheaper By the Dozen star were together for three years and even faced split speculation just a few months ago.

In a recent interview for Harper’s Bazaar‘s The Next Icons issue, Florence confirmed they quietly broke up earlier this year.

“We’ve been trying to do this separation without the world knowing, because it’s been a relationship that everybody has an opinion on,” she told the mag. “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.”

She also opened up about the lack of privacy on their relationship and the mean comments.

“Whenever I feel like that line has been crossed in my life, whether it’s paparazzi taking private moments, or moments that aren’t even real, or gossip channels that encourage members of the public to share private moments of famous people walking down the street, I think it’s incredibly wrong,” Florence expressed. “I don’t think that people, just because they have this job, that every aspect of their life should be watched and written about. We haven’t signed up for a reality TV show.”

Recent Projects

While Florence and Zach may no longer be together romantically, they did film a movie together that will be out next year called A Good Person.

“The movie that we made together genuinely was probably one of my most favorite experiences,” she said. “It felt like a very natural and easy thing to do.”

If you missed it, Florence has a few upcoming projects – Don’t Worry Darling, Puss In Boots: The Last Wish, and the upcoming Dune sequel, which is now filming.
