Alongside four pictures, he wrote: "Happy Birthday to the most fun person I've ever met. I would have felt blessed to have smiled with your for one night. I can't believe I get to giggle with you everyday.

"What a pleasure it is to know you. What a gift to the world it was that you were born."

You're a poet, Zach, and put the rest of us to shame.

Just last year, Oscar-nominated star Florence was forced to respond to online trolls who critiqued the age gap between herself and 45-year-old Braff, explaining that she has "the right to hang out and be with and go out with anyone [she] wants to".

"It's bizarre that normal folk are allowed to display such hate and opinions on a part of my life that I'm not putting out there," she noted.

"It's a strange side of fame that you're allowed to be torn apart by thousands of people even though you didn't put that piece of you out there."
