Chris Evans Linked to Co-Star Jenny Slate
It was apparent she’s a big fan of the muscular actor when she cooed about her co-star on Anna Farris’ podcast last month, revealing she didn’t quite know what to expect when she learned she’d be teaming up with Marvel’s Captain America. “I was a little scared because I kind of felt like, ‘Well, I don’t know him (and) he’s a giant man with huge muscles – and he’s Captain America,'” she said. “How could we ever connect? (But the) first night that we hung out, I was like, ‘Wow, I could hang out with Chris for, like, 90 hours.'” In the joint interview, Evans appeared to reciprocate Slate’s feelings, saying, “Oddly enough, I’ve only known Jenny for a few months, which is insane to say because we’re like the same animal.” Slate’s split from ex Fleischer-Camp has reportedly been an amicable one, with a source telling Us Weekly, “It wasn’t a bad break-up.” Audiences will be able to see Slate and Evans on big screen together when Gifted, which follows the fortunes of a man attempting to raise his dead sister’s daughter, hits cinemas later this year. The movie is directed by The Amazing Spider-Man filmmaker Marc Webb.
