What We Know About Florence Pugh’s Love Life, From Zach Braff to Charlie Gooch
Florence Pugh’s relationship status remains a bit of an enigma. The 27-year-old actor was linked to photographer Charlie Pooch after the two were spotted together in February, as seen in photos obtained by Harper’s Bazaar. However, Pugh hasn’t been seen with Pooch since March, meaning that the “Oppenheimer” star’s relationship status isn’t entirely clear.
Back in 2019, Pugh made headlines for her relationship with Zach Braff – who is 21 years older than her. Despite their age difference and the backlash they received for it, the former couple dated for three years, ultimately breaking things off in 2022. Even after ending things, though, they’ve appeared to remain on good terms.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar in August 2022, Pugh opened up about how dating Braff in the public eye affected her. “Whenever I feel like that line has been crossed in my life, whether it’s paparazzi taking private moments, or moments that aren’t even real, or gossip channels that encourage members of the public to share private moments of famous people walking down the street, I think it’s incredibly wrong,” she shared. “I don’t think that people, just because they have this job, that every aspect of their life should be watched and written about. We haven’t signed up for a reality TV show.”
Pugh and Braff kept things pretty low-key during their time together, but after their split, the actor also got real about how people were quick to judge their relationship because of their two-decade age difference. “We weren’t in anyone’s faces. It was just that people didn’t like it,” she told Vogue in January 2023. “They imagined me with someone younger and someone in blockbusters. I think young relationships in Hollywood are so easily twisted because they add to the gossip sites. It’s exciting to watch. And I think I was in a relationship that didn’t do any of that.”
