Update: It’s official (according to People magazine, at least): Jenny Slate and Chris Evans are back together. The two were reportedly seen hunting for a new apartment for Evans in New York City, and they looked “happy” and “very much back together.” So cute!

The delightful Jenny Slate and noted nice guy Chris Evans, who reportedly dated for a handful of months upon the completion of their film Gifted last year, have been getting cozy on some dinner dates in Atlanta. Per a report in Us Weekly, the duo were spotted enjoying the company of each other while eating food on two separate occasions in the Georgia city. “They seemed like a couple,” a source told the magazine. “[They were] laughing. He reached across and touched her arm a couple of times. They seemed like normal people on a date.” A second source added that they “looked very much together,” so take that as you will.
Slate and Evans amicably broke up in February, after which Slate poignantly opened up about the perils of dating an A-list figure such as Captain America—mostly that she didn’t know if they would remain friendly after breaking up. “We’re not on bad terms, but we haven’t really seen each other, spoken a lot,” she explained. “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.”
Slate also revealed her trepidation into starting a relationship with Evans, due to the fact she (erroneously) believed they were on different levels of attractiveness. “To be quite honest, I didn’t think I was his type,” she said. “Eventually, when it was like, Oh, you have these feelings for me?, I was looking around like, Is this a prank? I mean, I understand why I think I’m beautiful, but if you’ve had a certain lifestyle and I’m a very, very different type of person—I don’t want to be an experiment…. I’m considered some sort of alternative option, even though I know I’m a majorly vibrant sexual being.”
We’re rooting for these two! Go Slatevans!
