Actress and comedian Jenny Slate is one of those entertainers whom you’ve almost certainly seen before, but you’ve probably given little to no thought to her personal life.
Frankly, she probably preferred it that way.
But like it or not, Ms. Slate’s name is making the rounds in the world of celebrity gossip today thanks to a rumored love triangle involving none other than Captain America himself.
Sources say Slate and Chris Evans are a full-blown couple these days, which is odd, as Slate has been married to Dean Fleischer-Camp since 2012.
Apparently, Slate and Camp separated last week – not long after Slate and Evans wrapped filming on the upcoming drama Gifted.
In retrospect all the signs were there.
The actors recently gushed about one another during an episode of Anna Faris’ podcast:
“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.
“[But the] first night that we hung out, I was like, Wow, I could hang out with Chris for, like, 90 hours.”
Evans echoed the sentiment, saying, “Oddly enough, I’ve only known Jenny for a few months, which is insane to say because we’re like the same animal.”
In the past, Evans has been linked to Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Olsen, Minka Kelly, and Sandra Bullock.
It may sound like he gets around, but friends say Evans is actually a serial monogamist who’s just looking for the right girl.
In any case, they may have started under sketchy circumstances, but we like Evans and Slate as a couple.
If for no other reason than Slate deserves more starring roles, and someone with Chris’ clout might be able to make it happen, we hope these two work out.
