Zach's father, Harold Irwin "Hal" Braff, is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent (from a family from Austria and Russia). Zach's mother, born Anne Hutchinson Maynard, is from a family of English, Irish, and Scottish ancestry (Anne converted to Judaism). Through his mother's line, Zach is a ninth cousin of politician Mitt Romney. Zach and Mitt are both descendants of Francis Nurse (c. 1619-1695), and of his wife, Rebecca Nurse (1621-1692), a woman who was hanged in the Salem, Massachusetts, witch trials, after being falsely accused of practicing witchcraft.

On Scrubs (2001), Braff's character is often called by various girl's names. Ironically, his first TV role was in an after school special called CBS Schoolbreak Special (1984) (Episode: My Summer as a Girl), in which he poses as a girl to get a summer job.

Some of the events in Garden State (2004) (which Braff wrote and directed) are quirky, exaggerated derivatives of occurrences in his real life.
