    The fact that the pictures of Florence naked in bed were probably taken by Zach Braff makes me want to dry heave.

    • Annika says:

      😂 OMG I thought the same thing 🤢
      Aside from that, I do think she is very talented.

    • Miumiiiu says:

      It doesnt bug me that much. I dated some nice guys older and younger in my early 20s. Now in my 30s I’m with a guy 4 years younger. Guys in their early 20s are also dating older women (not me, but celebs do.) I find Zach kind of attractive so I get it. I don’t relate to her sharing that near naked pic or vid though ! That’s the norm now?

      • lucia says:

        If you dated a 44 year old man when you were in your early 20s you were probably too young to realize they were gross creeps.

      • Ramona Q. says:

        Lucia – every 44 year old man on earth would date a woman in her early 20s if he could. It doesn’t necessarily make him a creep. It makes him male. I’m trying to make my peace with who men are biologically lately. It’s difficult. In Iliza Schlesinger’s newest comedy special she points out that men simply cannot date, let alone love, someone they find unattractive, but a woman can fall in love with a man “despite his stupid face.” Yes, Iliza’s act is mostly based on tired, bs stereotypes, but I think this one is true. And it was so hard to hear, but men ARE utterly superficial. They want us hot and young. It doesn’t make them creepy. That’s who they are. I know, it’s difficult to accept that we are all first and foremost pieces of meat in their eyes.

      • Miumiiiu says:

        Haha wow actually I didn’t realize he was 44. Time flies. No I actually didn’t date anyone in his forties, even until now I still haven’t. If she sees him as someone fun or a stepping stone or the love of her life it just doesn’t bug me that much, even if he were unattractive, meh, she seems confident and has her reasons

      • whatWHAT? says:

        “every 44 year old man on earth would date a woman in her early 20s if he could.”

        really? you’ve asked every single one of them? or at least taken a scientific poll?

        because I don’t believe your claim for a minute. there are plenty of 44 year old men who don’t want to date a (likely) immature woman who is in a different place in life and doesn’t share the same interests or memories of time.

        “Remember where you were on 9/11?”

        “Totes! We were at that awesome club!”

        NOTE: I am not saying that there is no hope for long-term compatibility in couples like this, only that NO, not EVERY 44 year old man wants to date young.

      • Nucks says:

        I agree with Ramona here. Men want to date a woman significantly younger and if they can afford it, have fame or extreme good looks they will do so. Most men who date women their own age split the bills and then move on to a younger woman after they “get on” financially and their partner starts to look old, and when the man can afford to at least partially support or spoil a woman younger than them. It’s a male foible.

        They’re not evil or creepy. They’re men. I have seen this and heard the men talking — good men! — admiringly about men in their 40s dating a peach in her early 20s. It’s a status symbol.

      • lucia says:

        Those are NOT good men!!!!!! Like omg? What even is going on????

      • SKF says:

        This just isn’t true. I know a bunch of men who are 39 to mid 40s who have no interest in dating women 18-22 whatsoever. Indeed, in one group of friends, where one (extremely immature) friend IS dating a 19 year old, the rest of them think he is an idiot. She can barely have a conversation with them all because she has none of the same cultural touchpoints. Every time they spend time with her they all comment on it afterwards and shake their heads in disbelief, comment on how boring it would be. They also comment on how immature their mate is and the way he lives with his teenaged girlfriend (like 20-somethings) and shudder about it. No way do they want to go back to that! Box mac and cheese for dinner and out clubbing at least twice a week? Hell no! They occasionally go out for a night out with him for fun, then return to their lives happily.

        I know some quite wealthy and good-looking late 30s, early 40s guys who have no interest in dating women that age (could easily get them); because beyond the superficial, it is unappealing.

        The only guys I know who do date women that age are the guys who were always immature, who were messy in relationships, who were players. Hilariously I’ve noticed that a lot of them “fall madly in love” with a 22 year old in their mid-to-late 30s (good match maturity wise 😂) and then usually end up getting dumped because the 22 year old gets tired of them or realises how immature and flaky they are.

        I noticed that amongst my parents’ friends, the two men who consistently dated younger and younger women, both ended up increasingly unhappy and both ended up getting completely screwed over. One is a lonely, bitter old man, the other married (4th or 5th marriage) an intelligent woman much closer to his age (mid 40s to his 60) and is finally happy.

        Again, a lot of their friends pitied them and thought they were ridiculous.

        Not all men want a woman in her early 20s. They might admire them; but a lot of them are looking for a partner and companionship of a level you can’t get from an age, maturity, life-experience and cultural touchpoints gap like that.

      • ElleV says:

        Some thoughts:

        – It’s creepy to date / lust over significantly younger people

        – Being a creep may be common, but that doesn’t make it less creepy

        – Sweeping generalizations about gender are garbage

        – Let’s assume for a second that ALL MEN have the same hardwired attraction for significantly younger women, and let’s ignore that folks here aren’t defining what they mean by “men” and seem to be assuming heterosexuality… it’s still a HUGE leap to conclude that the only thing standing between ALL MEN and dumping their older partners to date dating significantly younger women is fame, money and looks, let alone to imply that this is just how men are, rather than a choice they make that’s mediated by a bunch of factors (e.g. shared values, history and love for the older partner, to name a few)

        – Making this kind of leap in logic probably reflects personal experience with a lot of crappy, creepy dudes and it sucks that’s as common as it is

        – Poor Florence Pugh wasting her prime on Zach Braff lol

      • Godwina says:

        Ramona, your essentialism is revolting and untrue. It reeks of a coping mechanism for yourself more than anything, for whatever reason.

        FWIW I’m a woman and I categorically cannot love (or sleep with) someone who isn’t physically attractive (as well as kind). The idea that this is only a “male” thing is BS angel-in-the-house patriarchy designed to serve men and screw women over (pun intended). Enough. Think of the children.

    • eto says:

      SAME. also seem like very weird photos to post but maybe i’m just getting old

    • jenner says:

      I feel that their break-up is coming, and soon. The bigger she gets….

    • Cali says:

      Yuck yuck yuck 🤢 glad I’m not alone

    • crummycake says:

      Just my opinion, but if an older man wants a younger woman because of the “status” (aka her looks) then he also better accept that the younger woman may be going after him (an older man) because of the “stability” (aka his money). In these cases, both parties are being superficial/materialistic and deserve what they get. I’m not saying this is what is happening between ZB and FP, but just speaking in general terms. Anyways, I loved LW but I didn’t really think Florence’s performance was anything tremendous – maybe part of the problem is that I didn’t really like the character she played. But anyways, good for her for the nomination!

  2. Lucy says:

    Florence is simply incredible. I agree that she should have been nominated for Midsommar, but I feel like they gave her a nod because of the year she had in general. They just put it under Little Women instead. Does it bug? Yeah, kind of. Still very much deserved!

  3. Kristen says:

    She definitely deserved the nomination for Midsommar, but that’s a horror movie, so not like, “real cinema” or whatever. serious *eyeroll*

    • ChillyWilly says:

      She was SO good in Midsommar. I thought the movie was good but not great. But Florence was absolutely riveting.

  4. Kate says:

    I’m not sure that script for Bernie volunteers exactly “trashes” Warren. It just has them saying that she appeals to highly educated, more affluent people and she is not converting any non-Democrats. It even gives them the option to state that she is their second choice. I don’t see a problem with candidates trying to differentiate themselves. That doesn’t mean I buy Bernie’s talking points at all, just saying that seems a bit overblown.

    • Miumiiiu says:

      Yuck. I love Bernie as a candidate as much as warren (except that he seems a little frail?) but that reminds me of the election with John kerry … “elite ivory tower” is worse to some voters than W bombing in the Middle East for gas, lies and weapon contracts.
      Is it really hard to vote for a woman vastly more educated about laws and economics than you? That’s such male fragility.

    • tealily says:

      I agree. Also, do we think Bernie is turning voters? I guess that idea never even occurred to me because it seems so unlikely.

      • lucia says:

        Bernie appeals to the same type of people that trump does – those that just want to burn everything down.

  5. tealily says:

    I mean, it’s cute but she knew what she was doing. A call was probably coming, she couldn’t put on a top?

    Also I will watch Spinning Out.

  6. meg says:

    ugh she’ll probably bring him to the Oscars wont she? ugh i’m sorry she looks so young and he looks even older next to her. Im sorry I can’t help but think someone wants to date someone that young because they want someone with less of a sense of self and assertiveness, you can get away with treating them poorly.

    • BetteL says:

      you underestimate most men’s desire to have sex w/pretty, 20something women. I see so many analyzing it being about control or feeling young…y’all, it’s not surprising…

  7. Lady D says:

    I don’t know this young lady, but she sure is pretty.

  8. BetteL says:

    …. I didn’t know what the cartoon Popeye liked to eat either… Popeye is an ancient cartoon & she’s a millennial, just like me (younger even) I think it’s pretty crappy for anybody to think that she would know & that it’s somehow odd/surprising she didn’t?

    just like people were throwing shade at Billie Eilish for not knowing who Pearl Jam was. SHE IS 18! It’s so bizarre to me that these things are surprising that young ppl born way after & Lliterally have never watched any of those old cartoons or music pre-birth that isn’t like, The Beatles… so silly.

  9. GeorgiaFi says:

    many on here underestimate most men’s desire to have sex w/pretty, 20something women. I see so much analyzing on here of it being about control or feeling young, that Florence is immature and that’s what older men like, all sorts of qualifying that frankly seem to come from a much more subjective place than ppl saying the above acknowledge.

    …y’all, it’s not surprising…sex. maybe it’s bc I’m a bi woman, I don’t know, but it’s been that way forever. It’s the same for men who are married who are happy & in love & would never cheat, but still look at a beautiful young woman when she walks by & enters his eyesight. Does that make him a pig, immature, a creep, gross?

    Because I guarantee you, EVERY girl/woman on here has had their boyfriend or husband look. I’m not talking about body parts, I’m just talking in general, noticing, acknowledging beauty & youth as attractive & leaving an impression.

    But to think that’s some sort of indictment of the man being a creep, immature, blahblah – that’s false. They all look & it isn’t an insult, it’s just something men subconsciously do.

    • Marigold says:

      I’m a woman and I look. No one here is talking about looking. I admire the looks and forms of young men all the time. I’m 45 years old; I’m not looking to date any of them. I have NOTHING in common with a man 20 years my junior (edited to say: “with the vast majority of them”). Sex isn’t the issue, either.

      The issue is standing RELATIONSHIPS between people this disparate in age. It garners comment because the vast majority of people understand that nothing even remotely like partnering happens between people this separated by generational, cultural, and experiential differences.

      I’m not saying people shouldn’t be ALLOWED. I’d be in the street protesting for them if someone started to talk about it not being allowed.

      I’m saying the obvious: Most men (and women) who target people decades younger for dating…are not good people and not good partners. It’s a power issue at that point, not a relationship. It’s even more egregious when men do it because men of every age have vestiges of power that women don’t have…at any age. Having said that, women use their wisdom and experience to lord power over young men in much the same way men do with younger women. And it’s not love. It’s using. And it’s sick.

      There are exceptions, sure, but the rule is the rule for a reason.

    • lucia says:

      No one is talking about looking. This is about being in a relationship with someone barely out of their teenage years. That’s what’s disgusting.

    • Godwina says:

      Hi, I “subconsciously” (eye-roll) imagine what a hot guy’s basket might look like in either, er, position when I pass one on the street. I’m pushing 50 and if 20-something dudes knew where my mind went when I’m in public…

  10. Jo says:

    I thought Little Women was a crashing bore.., and the ensemble cast lacklustre.
    And, what the hell was Better Call Saul doing in there?

  11. Kinkyteen says:

    Florence Pugh deserves it, she’s so awesome!

  12. Rachel says:

    Midsommer movie was the worst movie I ever watched. It was ridiculously stupid; and I didnt find her acting good in women either.
