Bumping into a freshly axed ex is a nightmare at the best of times, but can you imagine how much worse it would be if the first time you're reunited with that former flame, the entire world wants to ogle their peepers at you? Talk about cranking the awks level up to a solid 10/10. And unfortunately for #ChrisEvans and Jenny Slate, that's exactly what just happened.
At a photo call promoting their new movie #Gifted — the story of a single father raising a child prodigy — the pair were both present, though seemingly avoided each other throughout the entire press event. Yup, despite it being a photo op event, they were not photographed together once.

The photo op comes just a week following a rather candid Vulture interview in which Slate talked of her break-up with Evans, clearly implying that it was the #CaptainAmerica actor's mammoth level of fame that unfortunately tore them apart:
“Chris is a very, very famous person. For him to go to a restaurant is totally different than for me to go. I sit in my window and I say ‘Hi’ to people on the street. I have more freedom because I’m not Captain America. I’m mostly a cartoon."
Gifted hits theaters nationwide April 12th — check out the trailer below:
