After working on the set of “A Good Person,” Zach Braff says he will continue to work on other Hollywood projects with his ex, Florence Pugh, after they break up.
“Florence is definitely someone I still admire and would love to work with for possible future projects,” he said. “Not only is it beautiful outside, it’s beautiful inside too.”
Pugh portrays Allison as a woman who has survived an unimaginable tragedy, recovering from opioid addiction and unresolved grief.
The former “Scrubs” star, who directed Pugh in his new movie “A Good Person,” added: “It was a pleasure working with him. You see all his work on the big screen.”
Braff, 47, and Pugh, 27, have been together for nearly three years but broke up last year. The two did not publicly discuss the reasons for the separation, but maintained their friendly attitude.
“It’s going to get bigger with success, and I’m… proud to have it in my life. It’s something special,” Braff told Page Six.
The film’s writer-director also shared with Entertainment Tonight that Pugh is the inspiration for his new movie.
I admired her talent and said, ‘I want to write this for Florence’. What I write is going to be really compelling, and it’s incredible,” she said.
Braff was recently spotted having dinner with the actress’ family while in New York.
Braff also told us that he enjoyed working behind the scenes for his latest film.
“I think that directing, acting and writing is enough for me. I have acted in films and directed many times, but this time I felt it was comforting to just be a director and stand back and let the actors shine.”
“A Good Person” hits theaters on March 24.
