Jenny Slate Is Dating Chris Evans After Her Divorce, Which Is Just Glorious On So Many Levels

If you follow celebrities and their love lives, a surprising thing happened last week. Jenny Slate and her husband Dean Fleischer-Camp announced their divorce. Come on — the couple that created Marcel the Shell With Shoes On was over? I texted my friends. If they couldn’t make it, who could? Today, there is a glimmer of hope. Jenny Slate and Chris Evans, aka Captain America, are dating, according to Us Weekly. Well, well, well. I, for one, believe again.

Here’s what we know: According to Us Weekly, Slate and Evans met on the set of upcoming film Gifted in which “a man tries to raise the brilliant young daughter of his dead sister.” (Preorder your tickets now.) They went on a double date with Chris’ brother Scott at a “Hollywood eatery” in March.

Last month, they appeared together on Anna Faris’ relationship advice podcast as “Male/Female BFFs.” Here’s what Jenny had to say about Chris:

“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?’ [But the] first night that we hung out I was like, ‘Wow, I could hang out with Chris for like 90 hours.'”

Evans was just as sweet about his “female BFF” Jenny. “Oddly enough, I’ve only known Jenny for a few months, which is insane to say because we’re like the same animal,” he said.

Sorry to fangirl over these two, but an incredible 2011 GQ profile of Evans painted him as a movie star who still has a fun side. “I couldn’t quite figure out if he was a goofy, warm, regular dude or just playing the character of goofy, warm, regular dude in order to charm a female reporter,” Edith Zimmerman writes. As a fan, I assume Slate is all fun. Let’s put these two together in the next Marvel movie.
