The romance between Chris Evans and Jenny Slate has been confirmed and judging by Captain America’s famed abs, it is easy to understand why. In fact, the 34-year-old actress has been stealing glances at her co-star boyfriend even when they are on the set of Gifted.
“When Chris lifted up his shirt to wipe off the sweat, she tried really hard not to look at his abs. We were all looking but you could tell she was trying really hard not to,” the insider told People.
The romance should not come as a surprise, however, because even the crew of the movie they are currently working on have noticed their chemistry as Chris Evans and Jenny Slate were always seen laughing and talking on the set. The said chemistry continues off the set.
“When she was on set filming they were always together,” the source added. “They would go eat at craft services together, take walks together.”
The romance came in the wake of the news about Jenny Slate’s split from husband Dean Fleischer-Camp after almost four years of marriage. About two weeks ago, Us Weekly confirmed the split between the actress and her husband.
According to E! News, Chris Evans and Jenny Slate first fueled the romance rumours when they went on a double date with the Captain America: Civil War actor’s brother in Magnolia in Hollywood about two months ago.
During that time, they were just “in the stage of getting to know each other.” The entertainment news site also shared Anna Faris’ interview with Jenny Slate on her podcast where the Gifted actress gave her first impression of the 34-year-old hunk, which gave no hint of the romance with Chris Evans.
“He’s a giant man with huge muscles and he’s Captain America,” she said. “How could we ever connect? The first night that we hung out, I was like, ‘Wow, I could hang out with Chris for, like, 90 hours.”
