Don’t Worry Darling star Florence Pugh and Scrubs star Zach Braff’s breakup just earlier this year is probably the saddest news to come out of the celebrity dating scene. The two broke up without telling anyone, breaking a fruitful three-year-long relationship that reportedly started back in 2019.
Time passes and wounds heal after a breakup, but it seems like Florence Pugh is a mutant because her wounds seemed to have healed pretty soon. If there is anything to suggest from the most recent interaction between her and Zach Braff, it’s that all is good between the two, or maybe something is going on behind the scenes.
Why Did Florence Pugh and Zach Braff Breakup?
It’s hard to let old flames go, and Florence Pugh is definitely holding on tight to her ex-boyfriend Zach Braff even after their breakup a few months ago.
The Midsommar actress revealed during a cover story for Harper’s Bazaar‘s September 2022 issue that she and Braff had broken up without much publicity. She said-
“We’ve been trying to do this separation without the world knowing, because it’s been a relationship that everybody has an opinion on. 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.”
Zach Braff’s first-ever meeting with Florence Pugh, as far as we know, came in the form of a tweet that he sent to Pugh on Twitter back in 2018 in which he praised her performance in the movie Lady Macbeth.
One thing led to another, and they were seen holding hands in April 2019, and by early 2020 the two former lovebirds were celebrating Pugh’s Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in Little Women with kisses and champagne.
Florence Pugh and Zach Braff’s Post-Breakup Flirting
Nothing lasts forever, not even a relationship, or the breakup itself! The pair still seem to be quite friendly, maybe more than that, even after they went their separate ways as everyone can see on Zach Braff’s recent Instagram post.
The Chicken Little voice actor posted an open bid for a 30-minute zoom call with his Scrubs co-star, Donald Faison, on eBay, with all proceeds going towards a fund to “build specially-designed homes for severely wounded veterans”.
Florence Pugh surprisingly landed in the comments section, saying, “I’m deffo bidding on this.” To which Braff replied-
“I’m certain you could get this for free, but it is a very good cause for veterans….”
That’s… quite the flirtatious reply Mr. Braff. Could they possibly patch up soon? Or is the 47-year-old actor unable to let go of old habits that die hard?
