Florence Pugh has made a massive name for herself in Hollywood, starring in movies such as "Midsommar," "Little Women," and playing Yelena Belova in "Black Widow." But, right now, her fans are more focused on her love life.
The Daily Mail released an article reporting that "Midsommar" co-stars 26-year-old Pugh and 29-year-old Will Poulter went on a trip to Ibiza together.
They visited the islands for the opening of the opulent Standard Hotel and reportedly for their friend Harris Reed's birthday as well.

The many pictures the outlet shared of the two in their swimsuits on the beach led to speculation that Pugh may not be dating 47-year-old Zach Braff anymore. Many were positive about this apparent possibility, with one person Tweeting:
"FLORENCE PUGH LEFT THAT OLD MAN FOR WILL?? the world is healing…[sic]."
Another Twitter user expressed hopes that Pugh and Braff go their separate ways, saying it would be an excellent way to start the summer. One person comically tweeted that they are more interested in the rumored relationship between Pugh and Poulter than their own love life. Many others were just shocked.
HERE'S EVERYTHING WE KNOW ABOUT FLORENCE PUGH AND ZACH BRAFF'S RELATIONSHIP
Pugh and Braff have been connected since 2018 when the 47-year-old began liking Instagram pictures of the actress. In 2019, Pugh starred in Braff's short film, "In the Time It Takes to Get There."
This was followed by many Instagram posts involving both of them. The two then attended the "Little Women" premiere, although they didn't go with each other.
In December 2019, the first signs of criticism regarding their age difference came to light. Braff posted an emoji in the comment section of one of Pugh's Instagram pictures, to which someone replied, "You're 44 years old."
The actress clapped back, "And yet he got it. 👌" – a powerful confirmation of their relationship. But, it was only in April of 2020, when the actress shared an adorable picture of her partner sleeping, that Pugh made their relationship Instagram official by making it clear that they were together.
Once again, their relationship was met with verbal abuse as many criticized the age difference between the two. Pugh made a clip defending their relationship, where she stated that she is an adult and perfectly capable of making her own choices.
The two continued to share their love online despite the critics, with Pugh commenting on the age difference issue in an interview with Elle:
“I’ve always found this part of what people do really bizarre. I’m an actor because I like acting, and I don’t mind people watching my stuff, but people have no right to educate me on my private life.”
However, she conceded that this type of behavior from other people is part of her job in the limelight; she still finds the general acceptance of the extreme level of hate people throw at others online quite strange.
ARE FLORENCE PUGH AND ZACH BRAFF STILL DATING?
The question remains — are these two still together? Representatives for Pugh, Braff, and Poulter have not commented on the rumors yet. Considering how long Pugh and Braff took to make their relationship official online, we may never know the answer.
This is except for where the alleged couple has always left clues; Instagram. Braff shared a loving post in January, wishing Pugh a Happy Birthday. Just last month, Pugh returned the favor. What this all means precisely is something only time will tell.
FLORENCE PUGH GET'S UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH HARRY STYLES
This beach trip in Ibiza isn't the first time Pugh recently got seemingly intimate with someone outside of her relationship with Braff.
But, in this case, it was in the trailer for Olivia Wildes's movie "Don't Worry Darling," where she and pop icon Harry Styles get cozy in bed.
Fans didn't appear to think anything of this interaction, but we are all looking forward to another acting masterpiece by this beloved trouper.
