Us Weekly: Did Chris Evans ‘homewreck’ Jenny Slate’s four-year marriage?


Something shady is happening! And it will be interesting to see if anything happens, gossip-wise, with this “scandal.” One week ago, media outlets got confirmations that actress-comedienne Jenny Slate had split from her husband, Dean Fleischer-Camp. They had been married nearly four years, and sources told Us Weekly that the break up was “not bad” and that they just grew apart. It didn’t seem like particularly juicy gossip at the time. But now it does. Because one week after we learned about the end of Jenny Slate’s marriage, we learn that she’s been quietly dating Chris Evans. For how long?

She’s Team Cap! Jenny Slate is dating Chris Evans following her split from her husband, Dean Fleischer-Camp, Us Weekly can exclusively reveal. The actress/comedian and the Captain America: Civil War actor, both 34, star together in the upcoming drama Gifted. A source tells Us that the pair went on a double date with Evans’ brother, Scott Evans, at Hollywood eatery Magnolia back in March.

Last month, the twosome also appeared on Anna Faris’ Unqualified podcast in a joint interview.

“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?’” Slate said at the time. “[But the] first night that we hung out I was like, ‘Wow, I could hang out with Chris for like 90 hours.’”

Evans appeared to share the same sentiment. “Oddly enough, I’ve only known Jenny for a few months, which is insane to say because we’re like the same animal.”

Us broke the news earlier this month that the Obvious Child star and film editor Fleischer-Camp had decided to end their three-year marriage. “It wasn’t a bad breakup,” a source told Us, explaining that the couple simply grew apart.

[From Us Weekly]

As Us Weekly points out, Chris and Jenny worked together on Gifted, and that wrapped months ago. Did they start having an affair while they were working together? Was she separated from her husband for the past six months? Why does it feel like Slate and her husband only announced their split after her thing with Chris became a real relationship? Also: Slate is a Massachusetts girl (she grew up in Milton, apparently) and we all know how much Chris enjoys dark-haired Massachusetts girls. But does he like them enough to homewreck them when they’re married? Also: I guess Jenny didn’t text him back right away. It’s easy to play hard to get when you’re MARRIED.

    That’s all I got lol.

  2. willful ignorance says:

    Waiting for all the people on the board attack Jenny just like Kristin

    • toni says:

      When we see photos of her and Chris from the time she was married while they are having sex in a car in open daylight, we will.

    • Hudson Girl says:

      Not even a similar situation but, okay.

    • Natalie says:

      But Chris would be Kristen in this example.

    • Maria says:

      implying that Jenny has the same rabid following that Kristen had.

    • pretty says:

      persecution complex from Kstew fan? on this story, chris evans is the homewrecker role, not jenny slate.

    • Bettyrose says:

      I defended Kristen and I’m not familiar with Jenny, but the situation here is obviously different. In addition to the the points above, was cheating even established? Or did a divorcing woman start up with a new guy?

    • Tifygodess24 says:

      Wow 24 comments and oh no! No attacks…..Wonder what that could ever be? Ha. *sarcasm*

      Could it mean that people look at Kristen differently because of her attitude and actions and it is in fact justified criticism? Bingo. That’s exactly what it is and its spot on.

      • HeidiM says:

        And there were kids involved in the KStew situation, and that really changes things for most of us minivan moms who like celeb gossip.

    • Annetommy says:

      I’m not going to attack Mona Lisa Saperstein, my second favourite Saperstein after Jon Ralphio…don’t really see the attraction of Evans, pleasant looking but generic.

  3. Nicole says:

    I saw them on set in Savannah and thought they looked very chummy. Didn’t know she was married, she did not act like it.

  4. browniecakes says:

    Is this Lainey’s blind item?

    • Nicole says:

      Hm. I thought the blind was Jake G and Jess Seinfeld.

    • Diane says:

      I was thinking the same thing. But the blind item said the husband was someone famous and wealthy (like Seinfeld). I have never heard of Jenny’s husband. Does he fit that description?

    • TheOtherSam says:

      Probably not since she usually drops broad hints re her blinds, and she said nothing in her post today on Chris and Jenny dating. In fact she said she’d go back and look for clues she missed in their podcast.

  5. Maria says:

    Upgrade. Why would she stay with her ex when she can have Chris Evans? i dont see what the big deal is, everyone wants the best they can have.

    • Leah C says:

      Upgrade, seriously? Is that what you call breaking up a marriage? I think leaving a husband is a little more serious than dumping your prom date to be with the cuter, more popular guy, don’t you think?

    • perplexed says:

      Chris Evans is handsome, but she strikes me as smarter than him — so in that regard, I’m a little surprised either would be interested in each other.

    • Kitten says:

      LOL. Don’t sugarcoat it.
      That’s some straight-up realness right there.

      • Maria says:

        :) people like us only say what everyone is thinking. of course we would all upgrade when we have the chance. its not only you and me Kitten, its all of us the rest is just too afraid to admit it. that doesnt make us bad people, we’ll take what we can get and of course its going to be a tall hot guy and not some lousy film editor with a weird nose. seriously.

      • Emily C. says:


        No, Maria, some of us are in love with our husbands. Also some of us know that great abs do not translate to great sex.

    • Amada says:

      Is Chris Evans some great prize?

      • CornyBlue says:

        Have you seen his body ? That is some of the best rebound sex you can get

      • Erinn says:

        I can’t stand him, so I mean, I’m biased there. But I wouldn’t think so.

        I suppose fame wise though, it’d be an upgrade?

      • Apsutter says:

        Have you guys not seen his butt? Best male buns in Hollywood

      • M.A.F. says:

        Evans looks like the type of guy that would stare at himself in the mirror & give himself a thumbs up as he bangs you. So just because he has a great body doesn’t mean he is great in bed.

    • Starkiller says:

      Uh, maybe in your opinion. I just googled her husband and I’d take him over Chris Evans any day.

      • Norman Bates's Mother says:

        Me too – her husband is really cute. To me Evans looks skeevy and judging by his interviews, he’s also not the brightest bulb.

      • Penelope says:

        Agree 100%. Her husband was way cuter than CE.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        Yep, I also find the husband much cuter.

      • Dani says:

        I was just telling a friend of mine how attractive her husband is! Really handsome and seems fun and bright. I love me some Chris Evans – only looks wise because let’s face it he’s sooo dumb – but I think I’d pick her husband over Chris.

    • perplexed says:

      In the photo in this article, the husband doesn’t seem bad-looking. He just appears more…studious-looking — maybe because of the glasses, I guess?. Chris Evans’s handsomeness is probably more obvious in the way Megan Fox’s beauty is for a woman, but the husband seems to have a quiet handsomeness to him. Not sure if he looks as he does in this photo face-wise all the time though. He seems to be in good physical shape (i.e no flab):

  6. Brit says:

    You should check out Anna Farris’ podcast he did with Jenny back in Jan. It was discussed here since it aired a month ago but he and Jenny were very flirty and openly talked about going out together and at one point Anna said they were holding hands. I remember listening to it and being like damn if she wasn’t taken, she’d be his dream girl

    • Natalie says:

      I just posted about that! I’m still at the beginning so I haven’t gotten past the helmet jokes. Ooh, I didn’t know about the hand holding.

    • Naya says:

      I listened to that podcast which is why I can dismiss this rumor as complete bs. They spoke a lot in defence platonic male/female relationships. Iirc, the call in was from a girl who was being sidelined by her male bffs new fiance. Chris and Jenny gave very sensible advice, none of which would make any sense coming from a shady adulterous couple. Also, their dynamic wasnt flirty. Both Anna and Chris Pratt noted it was a playful sibling thing like when Jenny kept slapping Chris for no reason. At some point Chris Evans even pointed out that his real bff is a girl and he just tends to bond well with women. Jenny talked about her husband too, specifically dick pics, that doesn’t seem like something you do in front of your lover. Also, Chris is a butt man as he so kindly restated in that podcast, I love Jenny but she aint passing that test short of surgical intervention.

      This is what gossip mags do people. The man starring in the biggest movie in the world at the moment is bffs with a woman + they did a tipsy interview together at another celebrities house and now she is newly separated = Easiest magazines you ever sold.

      • Livvers says:

        I like your take.

      • trilby227 says:

        I agree with Naya. I listened to the podcast as well, and they seemed to have a friends that have a lot of fun together vibe, not a romantic one.

      • Maria says:

        those are people who play pretend for a living. do you think they are amateurs? of course they are not going full on “yeah we screw behind my husbands back because Chris is hotter!” the platonic friends stuff is obviously played up. that is THE go to excuse “we are just friends”.

      • Rae says:


      • Ashley says:

        I actually was thinking when I read this, “KNEW IT.” After listening to the podcast I was feeling literally uncomfortable with how flirtatious their vibe was. It was CLEAR something was going to happen. So awk.

      • M says:

        The podcast was recorded in February. US Mag says they started dating in March, so they began to see each other after the podcast.

      • InvaderTak says:

        But now they’ve had all day to deny it and nada. Think this one is true, folks.

    • Lyla says:

      I don’t remember any hand holding, just slapping.

    • Apsutter says:

      Yea I listened to it a couple weeks ago and thought they sounded veeeeeeery chummy and comfortable with each other so this didn’t surprise

  7. Natalie says:

    I was just listening to the Anna Faris podcast with the two of them yesterday. They are really comfortable with each other and he clearly really likes her but it seemed like he was her big brother teasing her. Maybe that’s how Chris Evans flirts.

  8. HH says:

    Homewrecking seems like a strong word. Despite she and her husband not “officially” announcing a split, it sounds as though they’ve been on the outs for a while. What would be weird is if she starts showing up to red carpets with him. That would be too much too soon.

    • yva says:

      Homewrecker should be outlawed just like the N word and the 3 letter one starting with F that people use to describe gays. A home that’s wreckable isn’t a real home. Horrible word started by jealous women who had nothing going for them when their marital status changed.

      Most celebrity couples that break up or divorce wait a long time before announcing it. A lot of them will keep it under wraps as long as possible until one has found another partner and needs to make an announcement so they can go public with their new relationship.

      • Dani says:

        Just because a home is wrecked doesn’t mean it wasn’t a real home. Sometimes people go through things that their partner can’t understand and someone else can. It’s human nature. It’s not okay but it happens.

  9. Bishg says:

    Mona Lisa has been getting some!
    Hopefully there was no cheating involved.

  10. LannisterForever says:

    Money pleeease!

    Love her as Mona Lisa in Parks & Rec :)

  11. shannon says:

    I smell insecurity all over her. If you look back over the past year, you’ll notice she’s lost weight and upped her style game. Everyone goes through a transition when they are getting divorced, but my money is on Chris having something to do with that.

    • perplexed says:

      Hasn’t she always been thin? I’ve seen her in interviews before, and she always looked like a naturally thin person to me.

    • Sylvia says:

      You know, I thought this same thing back when I noticed on her instagram she had gotten a french manicure for the first time. The caption was just so extra. IDK, it was weird to me for someone who acts like they’re all about feminism and ‘yeah, women should be able to not shave their pits if they don’t want (unless their nana tells them otherwise)!’ Plus, to be so old and working in the entertainment industry before getting a manicure, it’s just weird.

      I’ve always gotten a strong vibe from her that being the “smart feminist” is a mask/security blanket for some deep insecurities because she wasn’t the popular cute girl in HS, but that she would trade places with said popular cute girl any day. She mentioned her dorkiness / HS-era loneliness way too much during that podcast for a woman in her 30′s who is successful and married. It made me think she hadn’t gotten over some of those wounds.

      • trilby227 says:

        She finally got the hot guy that she didn’t get in high school, so she’s going for it?

  12. OSTONE says:

    Sorry, Minka Kelly!

    • Tiffany27 says:

      Forever a side chick…..

      • Kitten says:

        She almost ruined The Path for me because my BF hates her so much (he’s a FNL fan) and kept yelling at the TV screen every time she was in a scene.
        I mean, sure she’s not the greatest actress but she’s not THAT bad.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        I agree Kitten, Minka Kelly wasn’t THAT bad in “The Path.” (How good is that show????)

  13. perplexed says:

    She’s really funny, but I wouldn’t have thought she’d be his type physically.

    • Kitten says:

      I’m asking: WHAT is his type? He’s all over the place.

      • Algernon says:

        Athletic brunettes with bubble butts. Jessica Biel, Minka Kelly, Lily Collins…

      • V4Real says:

        That’s what he says but he has also dated Gisele and Naomi Harris.

      • Algernon says:

        I don’t think he’s locked into any one type, but he seems to circle around to “athletic brunettes” the most. You can also add Sandra Bullock to that pile.

        Also, I would date Gisele and Naomi Harris if given half a chance.

      • perplexed says:

        I guess I thought his type was more …like, “conventional”? But I fully admit I may have stereotyped him based on how he looks.

      • elns says:

        Is it wrong that it’s one of the things that I kinda like about Chris Evans? — that his taste is … eclectic. Can’t put that boy in a box. That kind of infuriates people. hehe.

      • Sylvia says:

        Other than Gisele (who I don’t think he really dated) and Naomi Harris, I’d say his type seems… basic. Basic brunette. Sometimes he veers more towards Cute Basic, sometimes towards Athletic Basic, sometimes more towards Smart Basic, but all the names mentioned are still kinda basic (and that is not shade, at least not to Lily Collins because I think she’s very pretty — she would be Pretty Basic lol).

  14. LolaHuesos says:

    This Saperstein twins keep surprising me with their partner choices. So random.

  15. missmerry says:

    omg Captain America dating Mona Lisa from Parks and Rec.


  16. als says:

    Considering how paranoid Evans is with privacy and maintaining his Captain America image he must really love her if he is going public with this.
    He put cigarettes out when he saw the cameras, what did he think it would happen when this got out?
    He constantly pushed the image that he wants a family, this story is blowing a permanent hole in the image he has been trying to create for himself.
    To be fair, this also puts a hole in his party boy image, people party, but they don’t wreck marriages.
    Very weird.

    • toni says:

      When Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan were recently interviewed for the new Cap America movie, they were asked which cast member would wake up on a beach not knowing how they got there and both immidiately answered Evans.

    • deadian says:

      I don’t see either of their reps confirming it in the story, so I don’t think they are going public. I don’t see how this would hurt his reputation though – Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen had rumors for months that he broke up her engagement and people generally shrugged it off. The only way I see this hurting Evans is if her ex comes out and accuses him of screwing up the marriage.

      • Starkiller says:

        “People generally shrugged it off”? Have you seen the comments any time a story about her is posted? She gets absolutely savaged every time.

      • deadian says:

        @Starkiller – EO gets savaged, but TH is still loved. And Evans is TH in this situation, he was the single guy supposedly hooking up with a woman in a relationship. Based on the THEO situation, Jenny Slate is the one who would be getting torn apart, but I don’t think she gets regular attention on gossip pages.

      • Dani says:

        Deadian – there is a difference between a couple that has yet to be married as opposed to someone nearing four years of marriage.

    • als says:

      @Toni: are you saying he does not seem to be the controlling type? If yes, I agree, he does not Seem to be. However, RDJ said Evans likes to play it humble but he is actually pretty shrewd.

      @DEADIAN: isn’t US Weekly a publicist-friendly mag?
      You are right, this would not hurt his reputation. But I don’t know jow aware he is of this. In his interviews he seems concerned with not rattling Marvel’s golden cage but he could be lying.

      • deadian says:

        US Weekly does seem publicist-friendly, which is why I find the timing of this story odd. If Evans and Slate are really together, wouldn’t their publicists wait till further past her divorce announcement to come out about their dating? So either one of their publicists jumped the gun, or US Weekly got confirmation they were at dinner with Evans’ brother and figured Evans was a good gossip headline with Cap 3 coming out.

    • KB says:

      Maybe he put the cigarette out because he knows young children look up to him? That’s being responsible, not paranoid.

  17. claire says:

    I didn’t even know she was married. I followed her on Instagram for a while and there was no sign of a husband.

    • Annie says:

      That’s usually a bad sign. When couples don’t post each other at all on social media, but post everyone else in their life. A friend of mine posted pics of her boyfriend pretty often. Proud of him, happy to be with him. She never over did it. She was just active on Instagram and parts of your life will have to be there. Meanwhile, he never posted pics of her, not once. But he posted often pics with everyone else. Friends, siblings, co-workers, his DOG 😂. Never her. Why not?? Privacy, I doubt it. Everyone knew they were together. They broke up soon after because he “wasn’t actually in love.”

      • claire says:

        “But he posted often pics with everyone else. Friends, siblings, co-workers, his DOG.”

        Ha! That’s what I was going to write: all her photos were of friends, colleagues, siblings, her parents and her dog. LOLOL. I for sure thought she was single. I only followed her for maybe 7-8 months, but that was the gist of it. She’s fun to follow, I just needed to do a purge on Instagram. I was following way too many people!

        Anyway, her family place up in New England or wherever looks super nice and her family seems nice and funny. She posts a lot about that.

      • Kitten says:

        Meh. I NEVER post pics of my BF on social media, only pics of my cats. We’re in a serious relationship and very much in-love and together, but we don’t see the need to incessantly tell the world about it.

        Although, I suppose it might be different for celebs who have an active social media presence.

      • Tiffany27 says:

        Idk guys, I have NEVER posted pics on social media of my boyfriend and I have yet to speak about my pregnancy as well (oddly enough I’ve only talked about it slightly on here. Ha!) Some people are just genuinely private.

      • Maria says:

        agree with Kitten. some people never post their partners and/or children on social media.
        if we look at celebs, the ones who keep their spouses out of the spotlight are usually the ones who have longer relationships.

      • lucy2 says:

        I disagree, she may have just chosen to not put her private relationship on social media. She’s spoken about him in past interviews and stuff, but never over the top. I could see her just wanting to keep that private.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        I don’t post pics of anything but landscapes and the dogs on social media.

      • Starkiller says:

        I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad sign. I rarely if ever post pictures with my boyfriend, simply because I don’t normally share information about my personal life via Instagram or FB. Some people just prefer to be more private than others.

      • Magnoliarose says:

        Not big on exposing everything or making symbolic gestures on social media. I’m rarely on it anyway. I don’t read anything into it.

    • Livvers says:

      All I know about her husband is that she and he worked on the Marcel the Shell videos together.

      • antipodean says:

        Awww, that’s sad, I adored Marcel the Shell, didn’t know it was them who did that.

  18. Miss M says:

    So Chris was her “Becky”?! 😂😂😂😂😂

    • One2 says:

      Becky With the balding hair.

      • oliphant says:

        hahahahhahahahahahhahhahahhahahahah amazing

      • Sylvia says:

        Hilarious! Hahahahaha!!!! Especially as I’ve just seen a pic of Winter Soldier with the caption: “Better call Bucky with the good hair”. Bucky/Seb Stan is totally the one with the good hair lol.

    • Kitten says: guys are mean ;)

    • Algernon says:

      I mean this in a sincere, guys can do whatever they want with their hair kind of way, but…he has access to stuff we normals have never heard of. Why is he losing his hair? He can fix that. I could not get over how much hotter he is in Capt America Civil War just because he has a better hairline with the Steve wiglet.

      • deadian says:

        I think some of it is the hairstyle – the most recent interviews with him have him with short hair and it looks like he gained an inch of hairline back. He looks a decade younger. I’ll never understand why guys do the slick-backed look; if you have any hair loss at all, highlighting your hair line is a terrible look.

  19. The Original Mia says:

    I have no idea who this woman is. But I’ll wait until her husband names Chris in his divorce papers before branding him a home wrecker and her a cheat.

  20. One2 says:

    She’s a skinny brunette. This doesnt suprise me at all. He did date Christina Ricci, she’s physically similar to Jenny.

  21. Miss M says:

    Either Mom Evans will not approve or umbilical cord will be cut in 3,2,1…

  22. CornyBlue says:

    Wreck me Chris Evans

  23. CidySmiley says:

    You know.. I could totally see this tho. I’m probably going to get a lot of hate for this from Chris Evans lovers but there’s something shady about him. Like on paper he sounds so perfect but he rubs me totally wrong. I could see them sleeping together and thinking it would be nothing that turned into something. I feel like he says these thing “just want a down home girl with a big butt” but we all know inside he’s going to marry some amazon model. I also feel like perhaps he plays the press a little, he’s very controlling of his image. Trying to hold the dude-bro in, but it always slips out lol.

    • One2 says:

      I think he is very conscious about his image and has pressure on him to be prefect all american man. But he is a huge dudebro and its hard to hide all the time. He says one thing and does another.

  24. LotaniaHerndez says:

    Do you believe this being true? I not sure. Someone saw a dinner date and now divorce. A big deal to rebound after husband so soon.

  25. HoustonGrl says:

    Was this the recent Lainey gossip blind item? Remember the one from a few weeks back?

  26. Lyla says:

    Hmmm…not really buying it. I listened to Anna’s podcast when they were on and didn’t seem flirty at all. She doesn’t really seem like his type. I think they’re just friends. You can go to dinner with your friend and his brother and his brother’s date, doesn’t mean it’s a date.

    • Miss V says:

      I agree. They had a a very brother/sister dynamic between them. They seemed like super close friends, but that’s all.

  27. knower says:

    “you can’t wreck a happy home.”

    It’s true, though.

    • Guest says:

      This. If you are happy you won’t give a shit about any other guy or woman. If you are happy you embrace your life with your partner. Just have the feeling that people don’t care about vows anymore which is a shame.

  28. Lululoop says:

    Its seemingly been confirmed on ENews. Check their site for the story.

    • Izzy says:

      Yup. They’re citing a “source”, not Us Weekly, and saying it’s been a few months.

    • M says:

      People mag also confirmed. Jenny just posted a photo of what looks like from Sudbury where Chris lives.

  29. Izzy says:

    Check out the stories on Vanity Fair and NY Mag about this (would post links but don’t know if they’ll go through). They are HILARIOUS. If this is the kind of coverage we can look forward to, I totally co-sign this pairing. “…trophy boyfriend Chris Evans…” I actually snorted with laughter at that one. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Cap Ass, but… I do have to agree with some of the posters here, he is a little too dudebro for me.

    • M says:

      Two weeks ago he was looking at Elizabeth Olsen’s boobs.

      • Izzy says:

        He would probably say it would be difficult not to stare with that dress, they were almost completely out of the dress save for some double-sided tape. But yeah, he was caught ogling her.

  30. trilby227 says:

    And Chris just said he was single and looking for a wife in the Rolling Stone interview which was just published this month. The interview took place on April 15, 2016, the day he and Sebastian Stan surprised fans at a showing of Civil War in Phoenix. So if they started dating in March, why would he say he’s single in April? If he’s dating someone he usually says he doesn’t want to talk about his personal life.

    • Miss M says:

      Because he didn’t want people (his fans) to find out he was a Becky before the movie came out.

  31. lostinthought says:

    Considering she graduated valedictorian of her high school and went on to go to Columbia University, she’s smart and funny and I think her and Chris make a cute couple.

  32. lol says:

    i love how skeptical celebitchy is about cevans. i adore him (and cap) but its super funny
