Florence is 23 and Zach is 44.

Florence Pugh is not here for any discussions about her relationship with Zach Braff, ok? The Little Women actress just clapped back at a fan on Instagram after they mentioned the age-gap between the couple.

In case you're not up to speed, Florence is a hugely talented British actress and she just so happens to be dating Scrubs actor Zach Braff. Florence and Zach were first seen together in April, holding hands in New York City. And while neither have confirmed their relationship status, it's safe to say they're pretty close.

Zach seemingly showed his support for Florence by attending the New York premiere of Little Women. And in November, Florence and Zach attended the Marriage Story premiere. However, on both occasions they didn't make their relationship red carpet official and posed separately. Florence also stars in Zach's short film, In the Time It Takes To Get There.

There's a 21-year age difference between the pair – Zach is 44 and Florence is 23. The age difference is clearly no issue for them (you know, the two people who are actually in the relationship…), but it is for some of Florence's fans.

But then one of her followers commented below Zach's emoji, "You're 44 years old." Of course, Florence defended her man, and wrote: "And yet he got it👌🏽." And I oop…

Zach didn't comment further on the situation, but whatever you think of the age difference, it's not really any of our business.
