1. Florence Pugh and Zach Braff break up

Florence Pugh and Zach Braff are done, and she'd appreciate it if you could contain your excitement. The Don't Worry Darling star confirmed in a Harper's Bazaar profile she and the Scrubs actor quietly broke up earlier this year. "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. She started dating Braff in 2019, but her fans weren't exactly quick to warmly embrace the relationship, largely because of the 21-year age gap; she's 26 and he's 47. So Pugh says they ended their relationship quietly to avoid "having millions of people telling us how happy they are that we're not together." Before they split, though, Pugh and Braff already worked together on the movie A Good Person, which he directed and she starred in. It's set for release in 2023. That's right: We have another Deep Water situation on our hands, folks.
