AceShowbiz - Age is nothing but a number for Florence Pugh. The actress portraying Amy March in the new "Little Women" movie was recently forced to defend her relationship with boyfriend Zach Braff after a number of her followers took a jab at their 21-year age gap.
On Saturday, December 28, the 23-year-old uploaded a photo of herself in front of Greenblatt's Deli & Fine Wines in Los Angeles. "First pit-stop, Matzo Ball soup," she captioned the snap in addition to "curingjetlag101" hashtag. Her post was flooded with numerous reactions, including one from her boyfriend which featured a simple princess emoji.
Despite being well-intentioned, the "Scrubs" actor's comment drew negative response from other users. One sarcastically asked, "Which 22 year old are you gonna go for next once Florence gets too old for you?" Another pointed out, "You're 44 years old." The last reaction apparently caught Florence's attention, leading her to clap back with a simple reply that read, "and yet he got it."
Pugh and Braff have yet to confirm their relationship, but the two of them had previously worked together on his short film that is titled "In the Time It Takes To Get There". In the same month the 11-minute film made its debut, the pair sparked dating speculation as they were spotted together for the first time in New York City.
Keeping their relationship on the downlow, the "Midsommar" actress and the "Garden State" actor attended the New York premiere of both "Little Women" and "Marriage Story" separately. Most recently, in early December, the two were caught holding each other's hands when taking a stroll around the SoHo area of Manhattan.
Prior to his romance with Pugh, Braff himself has dated the likes of Shiri Appleby and Mandy Moore. His last high profile relationship was with model Taylor Bagley. They were together for five years before parting ways in 2014.
