In a profile published on March 22, The New York Times broke the news that Captain America star Chris Evans and comedic actress Jenny Slate had split up … again. Specifically, the article’s writer noted that “their on-again, off-again relationship, beloved by the internet, recently ended.”
Evans and Slate first gotten together after starring in the 2017 film Gifted. In a March 2017 interview with Vulture (following their first breakup,) she recalled the beginning of their relationship. “I remember him saying to me, ‘You’re going to be one of my closest friends.’ I was just like, ‘Man, I f***ing hope this isn’t a lie, because I’m going to be devastated if this guy isn’t my friend.'” She noted, “Chris is truly one of the kindest people I’ve ever met, to the point where sometimes I would look at him and it would kind of break my heart.”
Evans has gushed about his ex-girlfriend in the past as well, calling her his “favorite human.” He told People in March 2017, “She’s so vulnerable, so honest, so interested in other people more than herself, she’s incredibly compassionate, there’s just nothing to not love about her.”
After exchanging some flirty messages via Twitter in October 2017, the pair appeared to have gotten back together by November of that year. We’re holding out hope that this celeb couple will reconcile in the future. It seems totally possible — after all, they’ve done it once before!
