Ever since we saw Chris Evans put on the red and blue mantle of the patriotic soldier in Captain America: The First Avenger, we all wished we could be Agent Carter and touch that puffed up chest, too.
Then, as the Marvel movies kept coming out, us Carter wannabes continued on wondering why Cap hadn't found the Miss to his America — both in the story and in real life. Evans dated Friday Night Lights actress Minka Kelly on and off between 2007 and 2013, but it seems like they never really came close to the chemistry Rogers and Carter had on screen.
Chris Evans Has A New Girlfriend!
As every Cosmopolitan advice column will tell you, you don't stay single forever, and US Weekly is now reporting that Chris Evans is dating his Gifted co-star, Jenny Slate.
Those who know the Obvious Child actress might be wondering what happened to her husband, film editor Dean Fleischer-Camp: They broke up earlier this month after a 3-year marriage, but are reportedly on good terms.
They're Already The Cutest Couple Ever
The two actors appeared on Anna Faris's Unqualified podcast in April and lit up some serious sparks. Slate recalled how they instantly got along:
"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.'"
And Evans shares that feeling. Why would you be scared of the muscles, Jenny?
"Oddly enough, I've only known Jenny for a few months, which is insane to say because we're like the same animal."
Scratch the sparks, this is some firework-level flirting.
Gifted, starring Evans, Slate, and Octavia Spencer, tells the story of Frank Adler, a man trying to raise his brilliant niece after his sister passes away. We can't wait to see the this new perfect couple together on screen!
