It’s Official: Florence Pugh and Zach Braff Are Dating

When it comes to celebrity relationships, there are basically two ways to make it official: an Instagram post or a red carpet debut. We’re still waiting on either from Florence Pugh and Zach Braff, but after their joint appearance at an Oscars pre-party yesterday, we’re willing to bet they’ll be hitting the red carpet together tonight. A fitting occasion, considering Pugh is up for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Little Women.

Rumors that the two stars were an item have been swirling since April 2019 when they were spotted holding hands while walking the streets of NYC. Add in a number of paparazzi photos and social media posts, and the rumor mill went into overdrive.

In fact, many speculated that Braff was the one behind the camera when 24-year-old Pugh found out she was nominated for an Academy Award and posted a series of intimate snaps.

According to Elle UK, the pair have already been receiving backlash via Instagram in response to their 20-year age gap. After Braff commented on one of Pugh’s posts, followers responded "You're 44 years old," and "he looks like your grandfather." But Pugh clapped back at the haters, responding "and yet he got it."

Fingers crossed this gorgeous couple make their red carpet debut tonight—it’s about time.

Wait, Florence Pugh's Brother Was In Game of Thrones?
