Chris Evans Linked to Co-Star Jenny Slate
Movie hunk Chris Evans has been romantically linked to newly-single Jenny Slate, his co-star in upcoming movie Gifted. The funnywoman and the Captain America actor, who are both 34, have become close off set, according to Us Weekly, and sources claim Slate is now dating Evans after splitting from her filmmaker husband Dean Fleischer-Camp earlier this month.
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.
