Star: Jenny Slate is selling out stand-up gigs now that she’s with Chris Evans

wenn24801713

Despite the shadiness of how Jenny Slate and Chris Evans started up, I actually enjoy the sort of low-key way they’ve been doing their summer romance. I mean, I believe that they’ve been banging for months, close to a year. But they’ve only been officially together for about three months. And while the tabloids have enjoyed side-eyeing the relationship, it does seem like Jenny and Chris are well-matched and well-suited for each other. Case in point: he’s apparently followed her around while she’s done stand-up, and now her stand-up acts are selling out because… people think they might run into Chris?

Dating Chris Evans is doing wonders for Jenny Slate’s career. In the not-so-distant past, the stand-up comedian, 34, had to constantly remind fans that tickets were still available for purchase the day of her show, but not anymore!

“Jenny recently performed two sold-out sets in Boston,” reveals an insider, who suspects ticket sales are up solely because fans are hoping to catch a glimpse of Captain American in the flesh – since he showed up at the Sinclair in Cambridge’s Harvard Square to cheer on his girlfriend Aug. 7.

“Chris is super-supportive of Jenny,” adds a source. “If being with him gives her career a boost, he’s more than happy to help out.”

Part of me is pissed off that they’re trying to attribute a female comedian’s successful, sold-out shows to her boyfriend. Another part of me is like, “Well, hooking up with Chris really did raise her profile, so I kind of understand it.” I’m not saying Slate was an untalented nobody before – she most certainly was NOT an untalented nobody. She was well-known to niche audiences, more of an indie-comedy darling than a mainstream, household name. But “dating Chris Evans” really has brought her a wider audience, for sure. That’s not why she’s dating him though. She’s dating him because he’s her dream 7th grade boyfriend. Gross.

    Jenny Slate is from Milton, MA. At this point in her career, she should be able to sell out The Sinclair in Harvard Square no matter who her boyfriend just because she is local and family and friends would show up.

    Meanwhile, Chris took Anthony Mackie to visit really sick kids at Christopher’s Haven at Mass General Hospital AND he is supporting MA Attorney General Maura Healey’s efforts to enforce the state’s ban on certain types of guns.

    • Krista says:

      Bingo! I’m not super on board with this coupling (even though I like them separately) but it’s no surprise that she’s selling out shows in Boston. This is a non-story.

    • M says:

      She never sold out tickets so fast. This was the first time many people have posted on twitter that were there waiting to see Chris Evans. Chris is visiting hospitals because of negative comments he recently received from fans, it’s all PR with Boston Globe there. BTW Mackie is misogynist!

      • lilacflowers says:

        Chris visits MGH regularly.

        The Sinclair is not a big place and sells out very quickly. Again, she is LOCAL.

  2. InvaderTak says:

    If they get any more cool with one another, can they please freeze over?

  3. Trixie says:

    Captain America is my dream boyfriend, so I totally understand why she’s hitting it with Chris.

    • amunet ma'at says:

      LOL, seriously agree.

      • Jellybean says:

        The gross comment is beyond me. I think we all understand that she is saying he is the tall hansom dream date of an impressionable young girl. His is too pretty and too muscly for me, but I understand the appeal.

    • Mrs. Ari Gold says:

      I always took it as she was making a joke more along the lines of ‘he looks like your stereotypical dream boyfriend of the average 7th grader’.

  4. Zuzus Girl says:

    I’d honestly never heard of her before this hookup.

    As comment one informed us; good on Evans for his charitable work.

    • Stella Alpina says:

      She had a short stint on Saturday Night Live. During her first appearance, she said the f-word during the live broadcast. Not surprisingly, her SNL contract wasn’t renewed for a second season.

      Whether she really cares for him or not, dating Chris increases her visibility tremendously. Jenny has been working for years, but she’s not a household name. Dating someone more famous is a career move in superficial Hollywood. Just ask Selena Gomez.

      • polonoscopy says:

        Jenny Slate is extremely well known and well respected within comedy circles. While the world might know her best for voicing Marcelle the Shell, she’s been a stand up for years, she’s guest starred on a bunch of shows (I loved her on Bored to Death and of course, as Mona Lisa on Parks and Recreation) and she had a break out year three years ago after Obvious Child. No, she’s not in The Avengers. But if she is enjoying success right now it’s not just because of some man. She’s been out there a long time. She works hard. She is funny. She is admired in her own right.

      • Stella Alpina says:

        polonoscopy, I never wrote that Jenny wasn’t respected as a comedian. Neither did I say or imply that she had no talent. My point is that she is not a household name and dating someone more famous is always beneficial in such a publicity-obsessed industry. She’s known within comedy circles but she certainly isn’t world-famous. She’s worked in comedy for many years yet she is not as mainstream as Amy Schumer, for example.

        Chris may well be her dream man, so good luck to them. But this doesn’t negate the fact that more people are aware of her now because she is dating a movie star with a higher profile.

      • Chaine says:

        I only knew of her from Parks and Rec, where her character was very annoying and one of the least funny.

      • Lea says:

        Maybe she had her fans before, but since she’s dating Chris Evans she is EVERYWHERE, articles about her seem to come out everyday, talking about how precious she is and why we all should love her. I mean, is it really necessary? Personally I find it annoying, but maybe it’s just me

      • Dani says:

        She was also on Hello Ladies on HBO with Stephen Merchant but her character was insufferable, much like her real life persona. I find her standup grating and her jokes are lackluster. But, hey, she got Chris Evans so she must be doing something right (besides cheating on her husband).

      • M says:

        She’s like Amy Schumer, untalented, but she has the voice of a feminist, what makes people like her, when in fact she fake feminist.

    • holly hobby says:

      Yup I wouldn’t be able to pick her out of a line up. Her profile was raised when she hooked up with Captain America – in a very shady way, of course.

  5. Naya says:

    I love them together. So glad that my favorite Chris is with a woman who is smart and funny and driven and amazing. Take that, Helmsworth.

  6. Little Darling says:

    I don’t think it’s gross that she said he was her dream boyfriend at all. Why is it gross? She had an idea of what her “perfect” boyfriend would be like, and now as an adult she feels she got that in a man form. I think the context was more of a Massachusetts thing than a Katie Holmes crushing on Tom Cruise as a kid.

    I thought she was FANTASTIC in Obvious Child.

    I don’t love overlap relationships too much though, I think people should end and then begin. But, it happens and at least she left the marriage.

    • Ash says:

      She’s still married to her husband, Dean, and there’s been no movement toward a divorce.

      People talk about Jenny like she’s a never been married woman.

    • trilby227 says:

      Fairy tales do come true! Her dream boyfriend! Some people will believe anything. They seem to forget that fact that she was married when she got with Chris and it still married.

      • QueenB says:

        so what? women dont have to stay with a man if they are more attracted to another one.

      • Little Darling says:

        Does that make her the worst person in the world? I mean, I think it’s a bit much this whole she was MARRIED though pearl clutching. She cheated, she was married, still is married, she moved on into a new relationship, which means she physically left the marriage. Overlap is shady as hell, but so is staying in a marriage when you know you have stronger feelings for someone else. Chris Evans is hot as anything, but I really don’t think that’s the only reason why they’re together. Chris has been so vocal about wanting an MA woman, and Jenny fits the bill.

      • Margo says:

        Trilby227 didn’t say Jenny’s a bad person. They just stated a fact that Jenny was married when she hooked up with Chris, so it’s not the fairytale the media & fans insist on portraying. That’s not pearl clutching, it’s just calling it what it is.

      • LeAnn Stinks says:

        The truth is, if Chris Evans was the married party in this equation, and he cheated on his wife with Slate, then indirectly poured salt into a wound, by stating Slate was his dream woman, he would be taking a lot of heat.

        Whether it is a man, or a woman, it doesn’t matter, it’s shady monkey business. Also, relationships that start off as an affair, usually don’t have great odds for longevity. The ole, “how you get them, is how you lose them” philosophy, if you will. Get out first, if you can, then you have a “clean Slate.”

        I am sure Jenny’s husband would have quite a bit to say, if asked. I am sorry, but she doesn’t come off as very nice, or considerate, in this equation. Evans has dirty hands as well.

    • Emily says:

      I know people are disagreeing with you…but it doesn’t really strike me as “gross” either, especially if you read where the original quote came from. I don’t “love” overlap relationships either, but some people seem really mad about this. Maybe she cheated maybe she didn’t…people do it all the time.

      • trilby227 says:

        “People do it all the time”–so that makes it OK. Until it happens to you.

      • Little Darling says:

        People do cheat all of the time though, that’s a fact. I don’t think Emily was justifying cheating, but simply stating that it happens. Lots and lots of relationships unfortunately start with cheating. Sometimes those relationships don’t work, sometimes they wind up being the strongest of the strong.

        Personally, I’ve been cheated on, and it DID suck. But it also helped me realize my worth and made me stronger in ways, because pulling yourself up after that takes some grit.

      • Emily says:

        Yes, I don’t mean to justify cheating, although the way I wrote it sounds flippant. Like Little Darling said, lots of cheaters can be awful, but some can end up in a new relationship that works for years and years and years. Doesn’t make cheating right, but it is something that happens frequently.

      • M says:

        trilby227 Cheater is a selfish person, nothing justifies cheating on someone, nothing. Only people with horrible personality that do this.

  7. Izzy says:

    This is not a fairytale, this this a typical Hollywood cheating story, she is not a great comedian, just vulgar and offensive. But everybody seems to love her now that she is dating Captain America. You should choose your heroes better.

    • Trixie says:

      I just want to point out that I do not “love her now that she is dating Captain America”. I give just as many sh-ts about her now as I gave when I didn’t know her name. So not everybody loves her – some people still don’t care about her.

    • lilacflowers says:

      I don’t love her either and I find some of her comedy bits a tad vulgar.

      • Little Darling says:

        Yeah, I don’t find her comedy funny at all, but the movie I really enjoyed and feel she deserves the buzz for it.

    • QueenB says:

      “she is not a great comedian, just vulgar and offensive” thats exclusively said about female comics. you dont hear that about male comics.

      also who cares? she is a woman who takes what she wants. people are so scared of female desire.

    • Izzy says:

      Except that she’s not dating “Captain America.” She’s dating a neurotic hot mess who PLAYS Cap, and that’s her “dream 7th grade boyfriend,” which just goes to show the mentality at work here. She saw the chance to live out a dream of her youth, and she grabbed it. OK. She also trashed her marriage in the process. Hopefully it works out for these two, but unless they both stay at the mentality of 7th-graders… well, good luck, ya know?

      -The Original Izzy

  8. lizzie says:

    this relationship seems sketchy but she certainly is not getting a higher profile at stand up gigs because of him. she was very high profile in comedy already – for years. i realize captain america is the #1 movie this year but she also top billed in a top 10 highest grossing movie of 2016 so far. not too shabby.

    • V4Real says:

      A top 10 movie where nobody sees her face and still probably don’t know who she is.

      • M says:

        She’s using this relationship in favor of her She’s not low key, almost every week there is a favorable article about her. In her last show, there was someone from Esquire Mag there probably to write an article about her She’s in our faces as she had never been before.

      • Lea says:

        Exactly my point, M. Sure, if you compare them to Swift and Hiddleston they are lowkey, but it surely doesn’t feel like that if you think that Chris used to be very private with his girlfriends. Now? Not so much.

  9. Who says says:

    I give them another year and the edgey girlfriend will ware off for him and her dream 7th grade boyfriend will disappear for her. Relationships are always fun at beginning, it is the next level when you start examining whether you want to continue on.

    • Tricia says:

      Chris Evans isn’t faithful to any of his women. He’s been seeing other women, in addition to Jenny. I’ll bet that pisses her off deep down because she wrecked her marriage for a guy who treats women like trash. I’m guessing that’s why she’s not divorced yet either. She’ll probably get back together with her husband.

      • Britney says:

        Yeah, I’m not buying the Jenny fairytale on his end. Also – Tricia please do tell more!

      • Dani says:

        Well, you do lose them the way you get them. I feel like her husband is such a nice person that he probably would take her back.

  10. Margo says:

    I agree that this is not the fairytale that the media and many fans have insisted it is. The way it was first reported, with Jenny’s separation announcement followed a mere week later in the same mag by the dating Chris announcement, was an obvious PR move to dismiss the inconvenient little fact that Jenny was (is) married.
    Now, C& J are adults and they can break up a marriage and date if they want to. I’m not the moral police. But don’t try to sell this to me as a cute little perfect romance because I’m not buying. Call it what it is, an affair that broke up a marriage. Jenny’s not an innocent flower and neither is Chris. It’s funny that so many fans insist that marriages end all the time but they can’t accept that affairs are one of the biggest reasons they end.
    As for Jenny, her profile has definitely increased because of this relationship. She had many fans before but lots of people didn’t even know who she was before Chris. Whether it helps her sell out shows in her hometown, I don’t know for sure, but it probably does.

    • Suzy J says:

      Well said – couldn’t have said it better myself.

    • Dani L says:

      Margo, well said. I liked them individually but not together. I like them both less now. Chris is no angel and Jenny is hungry for fame. I don’t love their timeline. Not to be the moral police either, but that rubs me the wrong way as someone who is now married and was cheated on in a previous relationship. That being said, the first thing that comes to my mind about this coupling is “you lose them how you win them.” For Jenny, she talks too much about high school, bad sex, body shaming, drugs and her anxiety in such flippant, alarming ways that I think she’s a complete head case. She thinks it’s cute and funny but it raises red flags for me. For Chris, Mr. Private with his own drug problem, who is sitting in at her show at The Sinclair while Jenny talks about how he goes down on her, is a complete hypocrite. Like RDJ said in that Rolling Stone interview, don’t let him fool you; he’s more calculating than he lets on. The anxiety and insecurities they each struggle with independently will eventually implode, IMO. She is still married and her husband is the one who filed for divorce near the end of May so I hope he feels as if he’s dodged a bullet. Being in her 30s, she was so quick to leave her marriage for the “7th grade boyfriend” (blech) then flaunt it around town for some publicity and ego stroking. Some prize you won there, Chris. Not that he’s anything to write home about either!

      • M says:

        I never bought the private thing from Chris Evans, he was always good at playing the Hollywood game. Whenever he does something wrong, he comes with a video, visits to hospitals. This week he did it a lot when fans were commenting on the rumors about drugs.

      • Izzy says:

        In other words, they’re both immature head cases. Either they’ll live happily, messily ever after together, or they’ll crash and burn when one of them finally gets their ish together.

      • SuzyJ says:

        Drug rumours? I’ve missed that one. Shame, I really like Chris Evans – I always thought he was much smarter than that.
        As for Jenny – I never really heard of her until they announced their relationship. I can’t say I care for her one way or the other, but the whole possible cheating on her husband thing, doesn’t really warm me to her.

      • The Recluse says:

        The total lack of discretion/privacy would be a total relationship killer for me.
        I can’t imagine going to watch your S.O. carry on about so much personal stuff in public like that and listen to yourself being talked about to a roomful of strangers. And now factor in how that relationship started…Just icky.
        Isn’t that akin to airing your laundry in public?

  11. Sigh... says:

    “Case in point: he’s apparently followed her around while she’s done stand-up,”

    But he HASN’T exactly “followed her around,” yet. He saw her in LA, while he was still staying there before CA:CW press started. He saw her in Boston, but he LIVES just outside of the city, and has been since the press junket ended. When she was off filming in NY & RI for a few weeks each, he was never spotted there (or was spotted hanging out in MA at the same time). Just sayin’…

    • Britney says:

      Exactly. He couldn’t be bothered to visit her when she was working, he chose to stay in Boston. But she stalked his ass to LA for 2 days when he had to go for a week! LMAO

  12. Lurker says:

    Captain America and Mona Lisa Sapperstein!!!

  13. pikawho? says:

    I like them both but this relationship still seems so random to me. And they are both cheaters.

    A mess all around!

  14. Matchday says:

    Have we started the countdown until he goes back to Minka? That seems to be his default setting.

  15. Amelie says:

    I recently realized she played Jean-Ralphio’s sister Mona Lisa on Parks & Rec! A show that I absolutely love. She was super annoying in that role but that was the point of the character. I wish her success though her relationship with Chris Evans is weird.

  16. ellie says:

    I knew who Jenny was long before she started dating Evans. I thought she was forgettable on SNL and Obvious Child had a good social message. Other than that, I don’t enjoy her humor and I personally don’t find her funny at all. To each his/her own I guess.
    However, she is still a respected comedian in Hollywood and gets steady parts in indie-films. Also, she is a MA local so people would probably come to her show.
    I also heard that she talked a lot about sex and other uncomfortable stuff on stage at her stand-up. But that is a good thing because first, a lot of women comedians do not get many chances to perform stand-up as comedy is still considered a male-dominated field. Secondly, I like the fact that a female comedian is selling out seats and openly talking about bodily issues and sex etc because it is okay to do that. Male comedians talk about dicks and stuff all the time and they are considered funny and when women talk about it, it is considered inappropriate. Personally, I think it is good that Jenny’s profile is being raised and more people are seeing her perform stand up as more women should get a chance to showcase their talents, even if you like their humor or not.
    Also, I think the “7th grade boyfriend” comment was just harmless. I really don’t think it’s gross or anything. I mean, it was just something she said casually in the heat of the moment. I don’t know why people are being obsessed with these words so much.
    Finally, I don’t think Evans went to the hospital to visit kids because there were 7 or 10 tweets about him doing drugs and just because a few fans on tumblr talked about it. His drug rumors surface once in every few months and has been circulating since 2011. It’s nothing new at all. Evans might be a total mess when it comes to his private life but he has consistently done charity work in the past and he always visits kids at hospitals.

    • Abby_J says:

      I was trying to figure out the best way to describe what I wanted to say about this, but now I don’t have to. Great post. My only change would be that I had no idea who she was before she was Chris Evan’s girlfriend. My kids LOVED her in The Secret Life of Pets, though. :)

  17. Stinson says:

    I don’t like overlap relationships but I don’t care that much. It’s Hollywood, cheating is not even news. What makes me side-eye on her is her tasteless comedy. Dirty jokes are not funny, woman! Bragging about how your superhero boyfriend go down on you is not comedy! Let alone the child abuse jokes and all the bong blowing and body shaming… God Jenny is problematic.

    And for those who say the we are being’s scared of female desire… I’d feel more disgusted if a male talks about penis or boobs all the time. It’s vulgar instead of funny , STOP playing the gender card every time ! BTW I’m a lesbian and I pretty much sure she tweeted “faggot” in her twitter. )

    And I’m side-eyeing all these who enjoy that kind of humor. But I’ll give her credit for being ambitious cuz that’s what’s important in this industry right? No matter how much dirt you get on hand.

    I have no words for Chris. In fact, do people call him Chris nowadays? I think his new name is “Jenny Slate’s Man”. Proper name, I’ll say.

    • M says:

      @ Stinson You’re on the point. Just because she’s a woman, it doesn’t mean that she can do everything.

      • Stinson says:

        I‘m a woman and I’m really tired of people justifying their questionable behavior with the excuse of feminism. Feminism means equality not privilege. She doesn’t get to be celebrated for cheating just because she escapes that “traditional Hollywood beauty” stereotype. Look at all the reverse discrimination going on around us !

    • Wood Dragon says:

      Excellent points,Stinson. I’ve been thinking back to my favorite comedians male and female and my favorites were not vulgar, even when they talked about certain subjects. They were just plainly flat out funny.

    • trace_smiles says:

      You are absolutely right, Stinson. Gross is gross regardless of gender. I am a woman and believe in the concept of feminism as equality. If people call out feminism as a reason for acting gross that is just entitlement and at the core of it, crap behaviour.

  18. Lucky jane says:

    Seems slightly insensitive to make comments about someone being your dream boyfriend while you are still married to someone else. But I guess no more hurtful than ditching your husband for said boyfriend. I get falling for someone else and leaving a relationship… But maybe keep it on the down low just a bit out of respect. At least, I would hope someone would do so for me.

  19. Mary GerG says:

    Her old tweets are way more entertaining than her show. All the C word B word F word and vivid sexual depiction , fat-shaming,homophobe with abundant of mental and suicidal jokes … People you don’t wanna miss that. Quirky Smile :)

  20. Meg D says:

    Ugh, stalker-fans are so creepy. Remember that girl who hacked Chris Evans’ Twitter and posted a lot of insane rantings where “Chris” admitted all his relationships had been faked?

    Hopefully the fans turning up to her gigs hoping to see him will actually appreciate the performance, and not be waiting with shivs.

    • Fire Rabbit says:

      You mean all those fans tweeting how excited they are to be there and see Captain Murica inside and hope they get a selfie with him? Those fans? Cause really, how much can anyone enjoy an almost middle-aged married woman still b!tchin’ bout highschool and embellishing her sex life like she’s some Housewife or something? Those fans know who they are there for.

      • Meg D says:

        God, all this makes Evans fans sound totally psycho! All this over some random B-lister?

        Hopefully they still know how to be respectful towards a performer, even if they’re there for the wrong reason.

    • Spiderpig says:

      I bet the stalker who hacked his Twitter is responsible for like half the comments about his new relationship.

  21. Lou says:

    Wrings hands in glee: Muhahaha! It’s working. They’ve been lulled to brushing the affair/still married/no movement on the divorce under the rug. The hate/anger is diminishing. Muhahaha!

    - Chris Evans’ PR

    • Miss V says:

      Lol, OMG I legitimately just spit on my phone from laughing. Both his and her PR teams are working overtime right now, to convince us all they are IN LOVE (yeah right) AND NOT SHADY AT ALL (umm, shady af, thanks for playing) AND LOOK AT CHRIS WITH SICK KIDS… AND HIS CUTE DOG!!! Permanent side-eye to both of them from now until forever.

  22. Grey says:

    With Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton making their way to White House and Jenny Slate being the new feminist Icon and comedy star, I seriously feel we’ve reached a dark era of mankind. Chris Evan’s new puppy has ten times the ability to make people laugh. I’ll make a petition to make it either Mr. President of United States or next SNL cast member.

  23. MoonSong says:

    The thing that I don’t understand is why certain people are dragged for offensive old tweets and vulgar jokes, but this american treasure always gets a free pass. What’s so special about her? That she is dating Chris Evans and therefore she has to be praised?

    • Fire Rabbit says:

      Yup, that’s all the stans need. Their koolaid is powerful stuff.

    • Cersei says:

      She’s special in that she’s living the dream of her fans: A husband + a boyfriend despite unattractive look , praised and respected despite limited talent and problematic taste. This is quite the #lifegoal .

    • Meg D says:

      I’ve never seen Chris Evans in anything, but aren’t most of his stans launching fulllscale Mrs Cumberbatch style hate campaigns against her? I haven’t seen anyone fanning her due to her dating him. Just psycho stans hating her for stealing their fantasy boyfriend. I’m sure the former exist, but they’re a lot less visible.

      • Floria says:

        From what I observed, she received the best treat from Chris Evans’s fanbase in his dating history cuz she seemed like a woman of substance. And she attracted a lot of new fans of her own with that feminist comedian facade. The CEJS shippers even claim that JS has a better career than CE and she is too good for him. She’s received great publicity and job offers after their relationship.

        I don’t think many CE fans dislike her out of jealousy. Many of them started supportive or cool with this pair. But then JS revealed her true colors as an disrespectful, vulgar and hypocritic person who calls random people fagxxt, bitch, cxxt and fat puxxy repeatedly. That changed everything.

        Unluckily they can’t voice their opinions without being attack by the shippers or the majority of fans. So they can just leave comments on gossip sites. That’s probably why you think the “hate” is more visible. No, they are the minority.

    Chris Evans must truly loves and connected to this lady. Every time he’s with her, he got dragged yet he chooses to show up with her again and again. I almost weep for this kind of sacrifice in Hollywood and I believe the cheater- homewrecker fairy tale will last till Chris Evan’s finally sink his whole career for his “same-animal” girlfriend. What a love story, way better than the movie they starred together which I have absolutely no interest to see after glancing at the abstract.

      I very much doubt enough people are a) obsessed with minor movie stars’ personal lives and b) puritanical enough that his career would be destroyed just because he dated someone who was separated but not yet divorced.

      His fangirls have loathed every single woman he’s ever been linked with just as much, it comes with the territory.

      I’ve never seen a single word about them outside of a couple of fan-aimed gossip sites.

        First she and her husband didn’t separate when they started dating but true, not many people care or aware of that. I don’t think some fan girls on gossip sites can do much harm to his career, neither. ( FYI,His fan girls loathes him hard too this time, that’s the slight difference.)

        I think the problem is how much damage Jenny Slate can do to Chris Evans. Since they hooked up, he turned himself into a homewrecker and rumored to be back on drugs. She is crazy for pots and mushroom and even dog medicines, who knows what kind of career choice will CE make once he got in sync with her in that department.

        And right now CE has no work except tagging her along and visiting sick kids. He seems to be quite satisfied with his new identity of a trophy boyfriend. He loses his ambitious , that’s what will eventually harm his career if he doesn’t pull himself together. Luckily he can still hide under the big shield of Marvel.

        Is that supposed to be a spoof of psycho stan rants? Because if so, you nailed it.

      • Lora says:

        I think @Floria is being sarcastic here… I don’t think CE will get back on drugs because of Jenny… He knows better than that. But I also agree that she is no positive influence and she’s seems very problematic. But is there any clean people in Hollywood ? Meh.

    You know what’s sexist ? Giving somebody a pass just because their gender. Like if Chris were a woman, she would literally be dragged by hair. And imagine Jenny as a guy who cheated his ten-year partner for an upgrade, it would be hideous rather than cute. For some reason, faux feminists are best at double standards.

    Jenny played a good Game ! no matter how it turns out she got the Attention she wanted. He got caught in his own game – plugging another girl in when another girl hurts his feelings, no thought for the girl he’s using. Except this time she didn’t go away or play the quiet side piece, like she’s suppose to, and he’s had to play it out

    I see what people mean, you start working the time line and that stuffs ugly No wonder people are not buying it. Zoo premiere with the hubby and the next week she’s bragging about a date with Evans…wth…what is wrong with both of them?
    All over SM she is gushing while still living with her hubby. And Chris was aware of all of it and ok?? Says a lot about who they really are..so ignorant.
    I was actually feeling bad about the whole mess not any more its all there in black and white. And others have fallen madly passionately in love and still acted like descent human beings…it’s actually not that hard !!

  33. guest says:

    Is he that obsessed over this Gifted Movie, that he’s willing to be drug through the dirt, over and over again. Even for me it’s pretty bad lmao, every article I’m starting to cringe for him. Geez man have some pride. Get Another Movie cause nobody’s coming in droves to see this one. Guarantee it
