Last month, a little rumor flew on our radar about the possibility of Chris Evans dating Jenny Slate.
In fact, some say Slate dumped her husband of four years, Dean Fleischer-Camp, for the actor.
Reports of Evans and Slate’s dalliance hit right just after she separated from Fleischer-Camp, and this new couple seemed just random enough to be true.
And now, a few weeks later, Captain America and the quirky comedian have gone public.
Yep, they’re a bona fide couple, folks!
The pair hit the red carpet for the premiere of Slate’s animated film The Secret Life of Pets, and she opened up to ET about their romance.
When asked about their first appearance together, Slate confirmed they were an item.
“I haven’t really had a large premiere before, so it’s nice to have someone who knows how it goes,” she said of having Evans with her for the premiere.
Evans, of course, rose to fame portraying Captain America in a number of big budget films about the Marvel character, so he’s been on many a red carpet in the past.
“And also, honestly, we’re just like both two teenagers from Massachusets so it kinda feels like I got my dream seventh grade boyfriend,” she continued.
Uh, yeah. Most would agree that Chris Evans is a dream boyfriend regardless of age.
“We didn’t know each other growing up but we grew up about a half an hour from each other and we’ve been friends for a while, and… yeah,” she added.
Slate did not, however, comment on the rumor that she was pregnant with Evan’s baby, probably because it was based solely on a tweet she posted about throwing up in the middle of the night, which could’ve just been attributed to a bad taco or something.
Evans and Slate met on the set of the upcoming film Gifted, on which they found mad chemistry together.
“Oddly enough, I’ve only known Jenny for a few months, which is insane to say because we’re like the same animal,” Evans said of his co-star and now girlfriend.
If you’ve never heard of Slate, we suggest you get to know her.
Her indie flick Obvious Child won rave reviews and her appearances on Girls, House of Lies and Parks and Recreation are excellence showcases of her intelligence, wit and offbeat charm.
