Newly Single Jenny Slate Dating Possible Homewrecker Chris Evans
It's been seven days since news first broke that actress and comedian Jenny Slate and her husband, Marcel the Shell With Shoes On co-creator Dean Fleischer-Camp, had split after three years of marriage. Now, Slate's been linked to her co-star Chris Evans.
The pair -- who star opposite each other in the upcoming drama Gifted -- reportedly went on a double date with Evans’ brother Scott way back in March, reports US Weekly, at moderately priced Hollywood restaurant Magnolia, which has a 3.5 star rating on Yelp, FYI.
If you think the pairing seems a bit out of left field, you’re not alone. Slate admitted in a joint podcast interview with Evans last month that before meeting her co-star, she wasn’t sure they’d get along.
"I didn't know what to expect when I met Chris,” she told Anna Faris, who hosts the Unqualified podcast. "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,'" she said.
Evans -- who sowed the seeds of their eventual union via Twitter back in October -- echoed the actress's feelings, saying, “Oddly enough, I’ve only known Jenny for a few months, which is insane to say because we’re like the same animal."
Slate and Fleischer-Camp decided to end their nearly four-year marriage after growing apart, according to US Weekly. A source told the site “it wasn’t a bad breakup,” which isn't necessarily true for those of us who liked them together.
