Florence Pugh & Zach Braff’s Relationship Timeline Is Full Of Subtle Clues
Florence Pugh is cruising into 2020 with an Oscar nomination and a newfound status as a Hollywood A-lister. The actress rose to prominence in 2019 with starring roles in Midsommar and Little Women, and she’s set to appear alongside Scarlett Johansson in the upcoming Marvel film Black Widow. Pugh’s professional accomplishments speak for themselves, but her personal life has also garnered some interest lately — namely, her reported relationship with former Scrubs actor Zach Braff. Florence Pugh & Zach Braff's relationship timeline sheds some light on where it all began for them.
While Pugh and Braff haven’t officially confirmed their relationship status, they’ve alluded to it in Instagram comments and stories, as well as a few public outings captured in paparazzi photos.
