Zach Braff and Florence Pugh announced their breakup five months ago. However, this doesn’t stop him from wishing his ex-girlfriend a Happy birthday. The Scrubs star took to his Instagram Stories to share a snap of the Don’t Worry Darling actress as she turned 27. The black and white photo featured Florence sitting on the slopes of Mount Lee in Los Angeles, looking over the Hollywood sign, with a fantastic view of Tinseltown behind her.
The actor wrote on the photo, ‘Happy birthday, legend.’ Pugh announced she and Braff break up after three years together last year, in August. In a previous interview, the actress revealed that they went their separate ways earlier that year. However, the now ex-couple worked to keep their relationship out of the public eye, with Florence saying they wanted to break up in private.
Pugh revealed, “We’ve been trying to do this separation without the world knowing because it’s been a relationship that everybody has an opinion on.” However, Florence did not reveal when exactly she and Zach broke up, but they were still together in April when she wished him a happy 47th birthday on Instagram. Prior to their breakup, Florence and Zach were working on the film A Good Person together, which Braff directed.
The synopsis of the feature follows Pugh’s character, Allison, ‘whose life falls apart following her involvement in a fatal accident.’ A Good Person is set to premiere in March 2023. The movie also cast Oscar-winner, Morgan Freeman, to take on the other leading role. Zach sang Florence’s praises during the production of the project, calling her ‘one of the best actresses working’ today.
The couple first met on the set of his short film In the Time It Takes to Get There, and they first ignited romance rumours in April 2019 when they were spotted holding hands, but neither confirmed anything until the following December. Florence celebrated her birthday earlier in the day, as her fans declared it an ‘international holiday.’ The Oscar-nominated actress took to her Instagram on Monday to remind fans of her birthday with a beaming selfie, while sporting a face mask. She wrote: ‘Tomorrow’s not just any day 03.01.’
