They dated! Some celebrity romances don’t always make sense to the untrained eye, but they have kept people interested in their relationship.
Florence PughAnd Zach BraffThe 21-year-old age difference between the two of them, who were first linked in April 2019, was the subject of headlines. Braff received a lot of hate for a birthday post he posted. Little WomenStar took to social networking to voice her disapproval at the crude comments.
“I’ve been wrestling with the idea for the past few days about whether I should do this video and then finally last night I thought, for my own peace of mind, I should,” she started to say in a lengthy Instagram video in April 2020.
The Black Widow star noted that “within about eight minutes” of her posting for the Scrubs alum’s special day, the comments were filled with hateful messages about their relationship, which made her want to remind her fans that “being hateful is not trendy.”
“I’m 24 years old. I have been working since I turned 17 years old. Since I was 17, I have been making money. I became an adult when I was 18 years old and I started paying taxes when I was 18 years old,” she continued. “I do not need you to tell me who I should and should not love, and I would never in my life ever, ever tell someone who they can and cannot love. It is not your job. And really it has nothing to do with you … The abuse that you throw at him is abuse that you throw at me.”
Braff later that year spoke out about the pain he felt when his girlfriend defended their relationship so openly.
“She literally sat down, hit record on her phone and said that,” he detailed during an interview with MR PORTER’s digital magazine, The JournalNovember 2020. “I thought: how could I possibly follow anything as intelligent and articulate as that? So, I chose not to.”
Megan FoxWhen it comes to her romance with someone she loves, she is not afraid to receive unkind remarks. Machine Gun Kelly.
“There’s so much judgment,” the New Girl alum told InStyleJuly 2020. “You want to talk about patriarchy? The fact that he’s four years younger than me, and people want to act like I’m dating a younger man. He’s 31, and I’m 35. Granted, he’s lived like he’s 19 his whole life, but he isn’t 19. If he were 19, no one would blink twice. George Clooney was dating someone four years younger.”
Fox, who began dating the musician May 2020, criticized Hollywood’s double standards regarding women.
“Four years? Go f–k yourself. We would have been together in high school. That’s so ridiculous that women are treated that way,” she added at the time.
