The list of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors just grew by one—WHO can confirm that Captain America star Chris Evans, 35, and girlfriend Jenny Slate are no longer dating.
The pair met on the set of their upcoming drama Gifted last year, and in May sources told WHO that Evans and Slate were “enjoying spending time together.” The confirmation came just weeks after Slate split from Dean Fleischer-Camp, her husband of nearly four years. “It was obvious,” a source told WHO, “they had chemistry and were really into each other.” Another insider said “you could tell they were great friends and just had a lot of fun together.”
A month later, in June 2016, they stepped out for the first time together at the premiere of kids’ movie The Secret Life of Pets. Asked about their relationship on the red carpet, Slate—who has appeared on Girls and broke out with her 2014 comedy film Obvious Child—told a reporter for TV’s Entertainment Tonight that “it’s kind of like I got my dream seventh grade boyfriend. We grew up about a half hour away from each other. We’ve been friends for awhile.”
In a joint interview for Anna Faris’s Unqualified podcast, Slate said that “the first night we hung out, I was like, ‘Oh, I could hang out with Chris for like 90 hours,’” while Evans said that “we’re like the same animal.”
Evans has previously been linked to Jessica Biel, Emmy Rossum and Minka Kelly.
