Here are some photos of Chris Evans and Jenny Slate at Saturday’s premiere of The Secret Life of Pets. Jenny does the voice of one of the animals, but Chris’s voice is not featured in the film, meaning he just came to the premiere to support his GIRLFRIEND. Back in May, we learned that A) Jenny Slate had just split with her husband of four years and B) immediately jumped into a relationship with Chris Evans, her costar on Gifted, which filmed last year. There were some rumors that Chris and Jenny’s relationship/whatever might have overlapped with her marriage. There were rumors that Chris Evans is the reason why Slate’s marriage ended. I believe all of those rumors, frankly.
Jenny and Chris both brought their kid-relations to the premiere. Chris had two nephews in tow, and according to People, Slate brought her nieces and nephews too. Chris and Jenny posed very briefly together on the carpet, and then Chris went inside and Jenny posed solo, and then did cast photos. Entertainment Tonight got Slate to confirm that Evans is her “boyfriend” and ET even got footage of Chris holding Slate’s hand briefly (while she ignored him). Slate was asked what was so great about having her boyfriend at the premiere to support her, and Slate said: “I haven’t really had a really large premiere before, so it’s nice having someone who sort of knows how it goes. And also, honestly, we’re just like both two teenagers from Massachusetts, so, and it feels like I got my dream seventh grade boyfriend.” Oooh, that comment made me wince a little.
