She stars as Natasha Romanoff’s (Scarlet Johansson) ‘sister-figure’ Yelena Belova in MCU prequel Black Widow, which hit cinema screens across the UK on Wednesday. 

And Florence Pugh’s boyfriend Zach Braff, 46, commissioned a portrait of his girlfriend, 25, as the enigmatic spy, which he revealed to social media on Thursday.  

The Scrubs star enlisted the help of ‘legendary’ painter Phil Noto to create the new artwork in honour of the film’s release.

He shared the piece to Instagram which saw Florence in a white jumpsuit and a green utility gilet while raising guns in the air. 

The portrait bore a striking resemblance to the Oxford born star. 

Zach captioned the upload: ‘Go see “Black Widow” this weekend and watch @florencepugh save the world!

‘I commissioned this painting from the legendary painter and comic book artist @philnoto. (the Russian says “Widow”.)’

Cate Shortland’s $200M-budget flick – also starring David Harbour, William Hurt, and Rachel Weisz – has already scored an 82% critic approval rating (out of 166 reviews) on Rotten Tomatoes.  

Florence shared the portrait to her own social media and wrote: ‘Best birthday present,’ despite her birth date falling in January.  

Zach originally met Florence in August 2018 when he directed her in his 12-minute Adobe Creative Cloud short film, In the Time It Takes To Get There. 

And last week, the Oscar nominated star admitted she avoids sharing couple snaps with her ‘magical’ boyfriend because she knows it ‘bugs people’ as he’s ‘not who they expected’ her to date.

‘It’s my life and I’m not doing anything to please people or to make it a better headline or story,’ the actress told The Sunday Times Style magazine.

‘I want to also be a person!’ 

At 46, the Scrubs alum is 21 years older than Florence, whom she’s called ‘a gift to the world’ and ‘the most fun person I’ve ever met.’ 

‘It’s so weird to me to go on to someone’s page and s*** on it,’ the Little Women actress said of trolls.

‘That’s so not my nature – to go and bully for the sake of bullying. It’s such an odd thing that we’ve become okay with in the past 10 years of social media.’ 

Florence continued: ‘The thing is, people want Instagram to be a nicer place, they want to see nice things. They want to be inspired and they want to be happy. I don’t mind you not liking me, that’s absolutely fine. In which case don’t follow me.’
