In an odd turn of events, newly-divorced Jenny Slate is dating… Chris Evans. yes, probably the last person you’d think she’d be digging on, but hey, love (and fame) works in mysterous ways…
The actress/comedian and the Captain America: Civil War actor, both 34, starred together in the upcoming drama Gifted, and I guess the rest was history. The two were just spotted on a double date with Evans’ brother, Scott Evans, at Hollywood eatery Magnolia back in March. And yes, that’s like a month BEFORE the announcement of Jenny’s divorce from husband of three years and editor Dean Fleischer-Camp, which happened last month.
Last month, the twosome also appeared on Anna Faris‘ “Unqualified” podcast in a joint interview. “I didn’t know what to expect when I met Chris. I was a little scared because I kind of felt like, Well, I don’t know him. He’s a giant man with huge muscles and he’s Captain America. How could we ever connect?” Slate said at the time. “[But the] first night that we hung out, I was like, Wow, I could hang out with Chris for, like, 90 hours.”
Evans appeared to share the same sentiment. “Oddly enough, I’ve only known Jenny for a few months, which is insane to say because we’re like the same animal.”
Aiigh. But Jenny- you should watch out. Not only does Evans seem boring, but he’s dated all kinds of women: Minka Kelly, Lily Collins, Jessica Biel and Sandra Bullock…just SAYIN.’
