For the first time since their split, Jenny Slate truly opened up about her whirlwind romance with Chris Evans, and what eventually caused them to call it quits in under just a year.
Jenny Slate, 34, has nothing but nice things to say about her most recent ex, Chris Evans, 35. In a lengthy interview with Vulture, the Gifted actress revealed how she and the one and only Captain America originally fell in love, and then just as quickly right out of it. However, you’ll see that Jenny knows exactly how lucky they were to find each other when they did — even if things didn’t work out.
“We’re not on bad terms, but we haven’t really seen each other, spoken a lot,” Jenny shared when asked how things were between her and Chris in the aftermath of their split. “I think it’s probably best. I’d love to be his friend one day, but we threw down pretty hard. No regrets, though. Ever.”
Sadly, it was the seemingly endless attention that Chris received that made Jenny realize she might be in over her head with the A-lister. “Chris is a very, very famous person,” she shared. “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.”
But, when it all comes down to it, Jenny could not have sweeter things to say about her short-lived love affair. Jenny gushed over Chris by saying, “He’s really vulnerable, and he’s really straightforward. He’s like primary colors. He has beautiful, big, strong emotions, and he’s really sure of them. It’s just wonderful to be around. His heart is probably golden-colored, if you could paint it.”
For now, Jenny and Chris have gone their separate ways, but they will reunite when the time comes to promote their film, Gifted. The film, about a man raising his genius niece and fighting to keep custody of her when his mother interferes with her education, is scheduled for release on April 12.
