Zach Braff's Girlfriend Fires Back After A Troll Calls Out Their 21-Year Age Difference

Zach Braff's girlfriend, Little Women star, Florence Pugh, fired back at a troll on Instagram who called out their rather significant 21-year age difference.

Age is just a number, amirite?

ICYMI, "Scrubs" star, Zach Braff, is dating the stunning and talented, Florence Pugh.

The pair presumably met on the set of Zach's short film, In the Time It Takes To Get There, sometime in the Spring of 2019, and made their romance official in April.

You may be asking yourself, 'Who is Florence Pugh?' — which is a totally fair question. As far as the general public can tell, she is a relatively fresh face in Hollywood.

In fact, she only recently landed her big break so to speak, starring in Midsommar earlier this year — a must-see.

Most recently, she's starred in Little Women, alongside Meryl Streep and Emma Watson.

But the key thing you need to know here, is that she is 23-years-old and Zach Braff is 44.

This information isn't exactly sitting well with everybody...

Naturally, some fans are up in arms over their 21-year age gap — calling it words like "creepy" and "inappropriate."

But let's not forget, there are tons of celebrity couples with unconventional age differences that we've all come to accept.

Like, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, for instance.

Bey and Jay-Z have been #couplegoals for as long as most of us can remember. It never even occurred to me that they might have a significant age gap.

But, in fact, Beyonce is 38 and Jay-Z is 49, leaving a 11-year age difference between them.

Scott Disick and Sofia Richie.

After months and months of dating rumors swirling about, and their 15-year age gap being the talk of social media, Scott Disick, 35, and Sofia Richie, 20, finally took their relationship public via Instagram earlier this year.

From then on, the pair were seen traveling together and cuddling up for Insta stories.

Leo, 45, has been dating Camila Marrone, a 22-year-old American-Argentine model/actress, for about a year and a half.

Their 23-year age difference has been a point of fixation for trolls, but fortunately, the pair seem to be going strong!

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green.

Megan Fox, 33, and Brian Austin Green, 46, met on the set of Hope & Faith when she was only 18. The pair were engaged by 2006, but reportedly split for a couple of years.

In the end, these two couldn't stay apart for long, despite their 13 year age difference. They were back together and married by 2010.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra.

These newlyweds have an 11-year age gap, but that hasn't stopped them.

Nick Jonas, 26, and Priyanka Chopra, 37, got engaged in July 2018, after only two months of dating. The pair sealed the deal at the end of 2018.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi.

Comedian Ellen DeGeneres, 61, and actress Portia de Rossi, 46, have been together since 2004. They were married in 2008 after the ban on same-sex marriage was lifted in California.

Ellen has gushed about the love of her life on many occasions, including this adorable quote from an interview with Good Housekeeping: "Portia understands me completely. In our vows, she recited a quote, 'It is good to be loved. It is profound to be understood' - and to me, that's everything."

Jeff Goldblum and Emilie Livingston.

Jeff Goldblum, 67, and Emilie Livingston, 36, have been happily married since 2014. The pair have two children together, with their youngest born just last year in April of 2017.

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones.


Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, 50, and her husband Michael Douglas, 75, coincidentally share the same birthday, just 25 years apart from each other.

The two were married back in 2000, but split briefly in 2013. They are now back together, and have two children together.

Anyway, there you have it — proof that relationships with major age differences can totally work!

So when a troll commented on a recent photo of Florence on Instagram, unnecessarily pointing out that her boyfriend is 44 years old, she had the perfect comeback.

Here's what went down.

Florence shared this sweet, and totally innocent photo on her Instagram.

Zach decided to comment a princess emoji.

Instagram | @florencepugh

Innocent enough, right? Plenty of boyfriends comment on their girlfriend's Instagram posts.

Well, fans didn't like it one bit.

Instagram | @florencepugh

"@zachbraff aging sociopath celebrity attempts last stab at feeling young and relevant," another person wrote.

Florence didn't sit quiet, though.

Instagram | @florencepugh

After one fan replied to Zach, reminding him that he was 44-years-old, Florence clapped back with, "and yet he got it."

Boom. Roasted.

On the other hand, many fans were rushing to Zach and Florence's defense.

"Get it girl. My husband and I are 16 years apart. Together 10 years, kids and all, going strong. She is just a number," another wrote.

At the end of the day, they are two consenting adults that have every right to date each other.

Plus, they're ridiculously cute together. I'm here for it.
