Zach Braff shares candy birthday message with girlfriend Florence Pugh after romantic backlash
“I always found it funny how I can be good enough so people can watch my work, support my work, and pay tickets, and I’m old enough to be grown up and pay taxes, but I’m not old enough to know who to have sex with and who not to, “she said on Sue Perkins’ July 2020 podcast episode: An Hour Like That.
“Once again, [it’s] making a young woman feel like she is for no reason, “she continued.” I think I felt like admitting that for a while, and then I thought, “How ridiculous is that?” I’m 24 and can’t decide who to love? … There’s a reason I’m not with someone my age – it didn’t work. So who are you trying to match me with? “
Although Florence understands why people are interested in their personal lives, she admitted that it is still strange when strangers criticize their romance.
“People want to have a say in who they go out with, where to have lunch. And I think to myself, I’ve always found that part of this life – even as I grew up watching actresses – I’ve always found it strange how people have a say in your private life, “she said. “The fact is, I’m not a reality TV star, I don’t let people into my life like that.”
