During a recent Q&A session held after a screening of A Good Person in London, Zach Braff and Florence Pugh bared their hearts about the making of the movie. Pugh commented that Braff, who she was cohabiting with at that time, didn’t let her read any scenes of the script he was working on. The Black Widow actress said:

“I wasn’t allowed to read any of it. I wasn’t allowed to read any of the scenes as he was writing it and he’d come up from the office [having] locked himself in there for a few hours and then would just start telling me all the pieces that he had discovered and I really wasn’t allowed to read anything. And so I kind of got to know the script and I got to know the character through us discussing it over dinner.”

“He knows how I talk, he knows how I take the piss out of people and I think he just put that in his script and I was allowed to come and fill in where it was needed. But reading something that is dedicated for you written by someone who knows you so well is a wonderful gift.”

While the actors received plenty of scrutiny due to their large age gap, many also praised the two for remaining professional after their breakup. But to this day, many are curious about the reason behind their split.

During the September 2022 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Florence Pugh confirmed that she and Zach Braff had split up. As per the actress:

“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. I automatically get a lumpy throat when I talk about it.”
