Black Widow and Midsommar actor Florence Pugh has confirmed she has split from Scrubs' star Zach Braff.

Speaking to Harper's Bazaar ahead of the release of her new film Don't Worry Darling, Pugh revealed the pair split early in 2022.

"We've been trying to do this separation without the world knowing, because it's been a relationship that everybody has an opinion on," Pugh said.

“We just felt something like this would really do us the benefit of not having millions of people telling us how happy they are that we're not together.

“So we've done that. I automatically get a lumpy throat when I talk about it,” she added.

Pugh has been the target of intense internet commentary about the age gap between the pair - Braff is 47, and Pugh is 26.

They started dating in 2019.

Pugh also hit out at the media interest in her relationship and labelled the paparazzi as "cruel and invasive".

“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 said.

“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.”
