Zach Braff says he's not a jerk
So it's no surprise to see him respond to the reports from Gawker, Radar Online, and other sites about how he's been tomcatting around New York this summer, seemingly talking up a different woman every night. On the latest entry in his blog (which is also on his MySpace page), he wonders why the tabloid coverage of him is saying that he's being a jerk:
"I'm not sure when or why the tabloid angle on me was decided that I am a cad. I would have much rather it had been that I am secretly a dentist or that I love soup. I am in fact, merely doing what every other single 32 year old man in NYC is doing this summer. I am dating."
That's pretty much what I always thought; the guy's 32, single, filthy rich, and taking what he says is his first vacation in 6 years. I'd be dating as many attractive women as I could find, too. Whether he's acting like a jerk towards them, though, is purely a guess; anyone who sees him acting that way may be taking it out of context. But, of course, that's his business.
Braff seems to be taking the attention in stride, though: "It is probably one of the only real shitty things one has to get used to when living in the public eye, but I suppose one of the benefits of this blog is that you can hear it directly from me."
In other Braff news, he confirms that he is the new voice of Wendy's, and that Scrubs will begin filming its final 18 episodes in August.
