Florence Pugh Defended Zach Braff Despite Their Massive Age Gap
The relationship between Florence Pugh and Zach Braff created a lot of chaos amongst the fans as they could not comprehend the 20-year age gap between the two. Pugh refused to stay quiet when the audience kept bombarding her on the relationship and how they expected their opinions to have a massive impact on her.
“The abuse that you throw at him is abuse that you are throwing at me, and I don’t want those followers. I do not want to have to be protecting my comments every time I post a picture of him. I really hope that I can continue this relationship with a lot of you.”
She took his side even after they broke up. Her claim was to not let anyone harass the director despite their separation just because of an age gap they themselves did not care for.
“I’ve always found it funny, how I can be good enough for people to watch my work and support my work and pay for tickets, and I’m old enough to be an adult and pay taxes, but I’m not old enough to know who I should and should not have s*x with.”
She knew she had to stand up for him and their relationship. She remarked that as a grown woman, it was not up to anyone else to tell who she can be with and who she cannot.
