Us Weekly: Jenny Slate & Chris Evans are apparently back together?

Jenny Slate and Chris Evans dated for much of 2016, and into the first month of 2017. By February, they were done. We didn’t have to wonder what happened between them for very long, because Slate did a detailed, exhaustive, somewhat neurotic tell-all confessional interview shortly after the breakup. She sounded like someone who was madly in love and got dumped. She sounded like she had heartbreak written all over her. When it came time for Chris and Jenny to promote their film, Gifted, the promotional tour was completely awkward and it seemed like Jenny was about to cry on at least one red carpet. But maybe time heals all wounds, because Us Weekly reports that they are back together!

Back on? Chris Evans and Jenny Slate recently reunited for back-to-back dinner dates in Atlanta, sparking rumors that they reconciled their romance. The former couple, who split earlier this year after nine months of dating, stepped out together for a bite to eat in central Atlanta on Friday, October 13. “They seemed like a couple,” an eyewitness exclusively tells Us Weekly. “[They were] laughing. He reached across and touched her arm a couple of times. They seemed like normal people on a date.”

The next night, Evans, 36, and Slate, 35, headed to Better Half for a double date with Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, Susan Downey. The restaurant shared a photo of the Avengers costars in the kitchen with a group of chefs on Instagram. The post was captioned, “Sometimes we have the chance to feed heroes. Last night, it was these exceptional gents.”

Once again, the Captain America actor and the Zootopia actress “looked very much together,” a second onlooker tells Us of their Saturday, October 14, outing.

[From Us Weekly]

In some circles, this is considered “backsliding.” You were in a relationship and that relationship ended for very good reasons. There was a clean break. And then, months later, or even years later, you backslide back to that ex. Sometimes backsliding is a great thing – you’ve spent time apart and in that time, you’ve figured out some sh-t and you’re committed to make changes within yourself. But for most people, backsliding is a tricky endeavor. You go back to an ex and you fall into the same bad habits, the same old patterns, and you remember why you broke up in the first place. So… no, I don’t think Slate and Evans are going to last forever. I think the pattern will continue: she’ll be completely devoted to her “middle-school crush” guy and he’ll dump her and break her heart again. Another confessional interview, more awkwardness, and then probably another round of this.

    Oh, honey.

    • HeidiM says:

      Yeah, I guess Minka wasn’t available for rekindling#12 of that relationship. This is what he does. he revisits. And then he runs away again.

      • Frankie says:

        So this is normal for him? Heh, at least he’s consistent? I’m guessing she’s more than aware of it.

      • M says:

        @Frankie He and Minka have been in it for almost 10 years. He did the same with Jessica Biel.

      • JA says:

        His relationships with both Jessica and Minka were VERY different than whatever this mess is with whatever you want to call Jenny.

      • Annabelle Bronstein says:

        She’s a masochist. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve all been there but I guess I thought she was smarter? He is soooo not into her. He must be bored, or she was ignoring him and he likes games.

    • The Recluse says:

      His mother is just going to love this.

    • Olivia says:

      i feel like the MInka thing is overblown. They at the least hooked up in 2007. They didnt really date until 2012. It seems like they only broke up once not dozens of times

      • JA says:

        This FTW! Yes! And same with Jessica, I think they may have broken up once? Maybe? It wasn’t some volatile off on thing.

      • M says:

        He and Minka back in 2012, then broke in early 2013, back in 2014, broke again, back in 2015 again broke.
        With Biel he had on-off too, but she met Justin..

      • JA says:

        Minka and chris weren’t back together in any real capacity in 2014 and definitely not 2015.

    • CTgirl says:

      Messy personal life + girlfriend backslide = too much trouble for sane women

  2. Crackfox says:

    Mona Lisa Saperstein deserves all the love.

    • FishBeard says:


    • Ann Valor says:

      She’s so great on Bob’s Burgers, too. I absolutely love her. If she wants to have messy relationships and enjoy her time, all the power to her. I wholly agree with the “backsliding” assessment, and it probably will end poorly, but as Miss Frizzle says: Take changes, make mistakes, and get messy. I backslid several times with some of my friends. They’re still my friends. My two very best friends, the people I speak to constantly, all day, every day, are exes. My fiance and I are about to relocate to another state to live with one of my exes – because he was my friend before we dated, after we dated, and while we were backsliding….regularly, heh. If you have a strong relationship with someone, it’s worth the mess and confusion. We’re not expected to have everything figured out. As long as they really do care about each other, they can get as messy as they want and still be friends. They seem like they’re pretty sensible people, even if they don’t have it all figured out, and they certainly seem like they’re nice enough to each other to figure out how to navigate any conflicts.

      • Dee says:

        It’s not just about messy relationships. She ‘allegedly’ cheated on her husband, then left him, for Chris.

      • Mal says:

        I don’t think she particularly “enjoyed her time” with said messy relationship. She spoke about it in the Vulture interview and said she was stressed. I also don’t know if quoting the Magic School Bus when it comes to real people in relationships is entirely mature or the outlook that having messy is something good. In fact, that’s probably not the best way to live.

      • Cindy says:

        ” If you have a strong relationship with someone, it’s worth the mess and confusion.”

        I’m concerned about how some people view what a strong or HEALTHY relationship is if they believe being messy is a good thing. Added in the fact that Jenny literally said the relationship was stressful for her. It’s also a little concerning that Jenny would also walk back into something that was more problematic than just scheduling conflicts.

    • Annetommy says:

      As does Jean-Ralphio…

  3. BearcatLawyer says:

    I find her so exhausting.

  4. Beth says:

    She seemed completely heart broken the first time, so she should be careful with getting her hopes up to quickly if they’re dating again. He really didn’t seem to show any emotion about them breaking up, but she made it clear how upset she was. I felt so bad for her when she didn’t stop talking about their relationship and how happy she’d been

    • Laura says:

      He didn’t ‘show any emotion’ to a tabloid like she did. He’s very private about his personal life and doesn’t want to turn it into a media circus.

      And as far as she’s concerned, I didn’t see heartbreak or upset, I saw someone with a complete lack of respect for the privacy of the person they apparently thought so highly of and a case of chronic verbal diarrhea.

    • QueenB says:

      Most people dont show their emotions in the gossip press. Jenny does tho.

      • Grapefruit says:

        yup. she’s messy. she’s selfish. she’s a masochist. classic comedian in both lifestyle and a negative relationship with “relationships”

  5. Eliza says:

    Considering he supposedly ended things when it became inconvenient for his schedule, and now it’s easy again as they’re filming in the same city, I’m sure history will repeat itself and as soon as it requires effort on his part it’ll be over.

    But who knows maybe people can change. Optimism.

    • V4Real says:

      Jenny strikes me as the unpopular girl in high school who ends up with the popular jock.

      Oh shit they are the characters from his film, Not Another Teen Movie.

      • Kenzy says:

        @V4Real, your comment made me laugh because Jenny literally said, “I got my dream 7th grade boyfriend” in reference to Chris.

      • Dee says:

        And conveniently the girl in the move is Janey lol.

      • Ladidah says:

        Random: someone I know went to either camp or boarding school (Milton?) with Jenny and back in 2004 was telling me about this hilarious, popular chick named Jenny Slate who this person was convinced would become famous due to her comedy/acting ability displayed in the talent show.

        I heard all comedians have darkness though…

  6. Lily says:

    That article is based purely on social media tidbits & random “onlookers” . This is in no way an exclusive, but more like a vague PR piece by her team. She only gets noticed if she’s talking about the dudes she’s been with.

    I don’t think she was heartbroken by the break up at all; more like she was upset he never overtly acknowledged her in the ridiculous way she did about him.

  7. Mia4s says:

    Oh this is going to go so well!….said no one.

  8. Prairiegirl says:

    Good lord. He did this with Jessica Biel and Minka Kelly too.

  9. Esmerelda says:

    Oh! Fluffy gossip! I missed this! And I’m in favour of this pairing merely for the entertainment value.

    • Lyka says:

      Lol, agreed. I remember the chorus of “oh, girls” this whole site threw at Slate the last go round. I like her and am ambivalent about him – until we find out they’re both puppy mill enthusiasts or something, I’m all for taking a break from the world with this junkfood gossip.

  10. Esmom says:

    Have actual nightmares about “backsliding” into a relationship with my college boyfriend. I wake up so relieved it was just a dream, lol.

    I heard she’s going to be on Lovett or Leave It this week, I’m vert curious to hear her take on things, mostly politics as the show tends to lean.

  11. Adele Dazeem says:

    Jenny needs a close girlfriend or relative that will give her the hard truth. She acts like someone with no support team of ‘love advisors.’

  12. TyrantDestroyed says:

    Oh Lord! They started to remind me of Katy Perry and John Mayer.

  13. Andy says:

    Oh gosh, not this nightmare again. She is a manipulative liar, despite all her PR cleaning, and he is dumb to get back with her. Or maybe they deserve each other.

    • Myhairisfullofsecrets says:

      What did she do? I haven’t heard anything about her lying and manipulating.

      • Andy says:

        The web is full of receipts, even if she’s tried to erase them all. Deleting tweets, pics and even comments. But if you look, you’ll find.

      • Kate says:

        From what people are saying on other articles and on social media:

        1. Was called out by her Dad for lying in their book about not having friends when she did. I don’t know what the manipulating part is though.
        1a. Something about relieving herself on her carpet in her childhood room that I probably don’t want more detail on.
        2. Tweets that had homophobic, transphobic, ableist, body shaming and other derogatory language. I guess that’s her form of comedy? There are screencaps of them somewhere.

      • Jess says:

        The screen grabs of her tweets are easy to find. I didn’t know about them and just found them with a search. I think she even has some of them on her Twitter feed. I’m surprised no one has called her out on them sooner because they are downright awful and completely in contrast of this “woke” woman she is portraying on Twitter.

        Maybe she’s changed but it still doesn’t excuse she tweeted that in the first place. I hear her comedy is really vulgar too so who knows. Oddly enough, the type of hate speak that is goes in contrast to what Evans has been outspoken about and it doesn’t seem like he’s aware of the tweets because I doubt he, his brother or family would appreciate them.

      • Lightpurple says:

        @Kate, I think the story about relieving herself may have been in the book she did with her father. She put in very detailed writing and I read an excerpt of it somewhere and she talked about it in an interview she gave the Boston Globe. She was about 16 and angry with her mother and just sat on her bedroom floor and went. She described the smell and the feel of it in her pants with great pride years later. Because this is what normal teenagers do and what normal adult women talk about. NOT.

        Her comedy has a lot of focus on secretions.

      • M says:

        @lightpurple It only shows her privilege in doing so. I was a poor girl who had to clean my room and our house because my mother was working all day to support me and my brothers.

      • Carrie says:

        Wow, I was curious about the tweets and decided to look for them. I didn’t expect the amount of them or the type of tasteless language she used. A lot of it was slurs.

        I remember that podcast they did and how she kept slapping Chris and thought that was awkward.

        I’m all for women being women and not having any stereotypes but to equate some of Jenny’s actions as “feminine” as one commenters said is stretching the word. She may be feminine in other aspects, but the vulgarity of her “comedy” and some other things people have mentioned…no.

      • M says:

        @Myhairisfullofsecrets She said she once pretended to be sick to receive attention from her parents. She also said that sometimes she tests her friends to see if they are really her friends.
        If my friend pretended to test our friendship, I would end the friendship

    • Laura says:


      I find the fat-shaming stuff so utterly hypocritical..

      In the Anna Faris podcast she preached how women should not be judged for allowing their body hair to bloom but it’s apparently OK for her to publicly judge women who are overweight..

      And talking of that podcast… the double standards were mind-blowing. She talked in detail about a previous (unnamed) BF whose balls stank so bad she was disgusted and dumped him, even despite ‘exfoliating them’ herself…
      Now imagine if Chris had said something like that about a GF?… People would’ve busted a blood vessel about what a gross sexist monster he is …

      • Tweety567 says:

        The secondhand embarassment is real ‘___’

        I have no idea who she is, but sounds gross

      • Jay says:

        @Laura – I actually used to like her because I saw her on some of my favorite shows. It’s unfortunate that once you learn more about the person, sometimes it’s not a nice picture.

        She is very hypocritical but a lot of it gets a pass because it’s her ~~comedy and some of the tweets were old. I think male comedians who would say even a 1/3 of what she does would get dragged. There was also a celebrity downfall week not too long ago where old things were being brought up.

    • M says:

      She deleted some, but never apologized for them. When people call her out, she deletes and pretends that it never happened. She was talking about Weinsetin, but anyone brought her twitter that shows she wanted to have a device like the MIB to make men show their penis to her, then erase their memory.

      • Sigh... says:

        What’s ironic (= hypocritical) is his tweeting, criticizing Pres Chump about deleting his tweets after that senator’s loss, when his on/off gf did the exact same thing (old tweets/IG posts and new ones) during their Romance Round #1.

      • katie says:

        @sigh She actually seems to contradict a lot of what he says and does with her own words and actions. It really doesn’t play well for him to have this one side of him being outspoken and then on the opposite spectrum, she’s throwing out derogatory slurs as jokes. I wouldn’t be surprised if his fans were pleased. The homophobia, transphobia, body shaming and everything else certainly wouldn’t make me happy if I was his fan and he associated himself with her. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt that he’s not aware of it since she deleted a lot of it.

      • katie says:

        UGH. Meant to say I wouldn’t be surprised if his fans WEREN’T please. Obviously they wouldn’t be happy.

    • Myhairisfullofsecrets says:

      Wow. Thanks to everyone that responded. I had not heard any of this. I hope she’s changed since all of this happened.

    • Ladidah says:

      I cannot find any of jenny slate’s problematic tweets/pictures, (googled jenny slate homophobia) can someone help me out?

  14. Alexandria says:

    What is her heritage? She looks like Archie Punjabi’s or Amal’s cousin.

  15. bluerunning says:

    Oh no… has he started the “Minka cycle” only with Jenny? We’ll have to go through at least 2-3 more make ups/break ups. In the meantime, we can only hope for more epic thought-vomit interviews during the inevitable break up.

    of course, I say that with sarcasm and in a month they’ll be engaged or something

  16. Pitterpatt says:

    A shoutout to gossip sites: please don’t make it sound like they are the greatest couple and lovegoal, cause they. Are. Not. They have never been.

    Let’s all move on.

  17. Oh Jenny, when it comes to Evans, you are the rule, not the exception.

  18. Sassback says:

    I’m surprised he would go back and date her, considering how open she was about their relationship. He’s probably messy too. But now he knows he can call her back up when he’s not busy. UGH BEEN THERE JENNY SLATE.

  19. DiligentDiva says:

    I can see why she wants him back, she dumped her husband for this man. It’s hard to do that and not want to stay committed to that choice. I’m not sure so much it’s love with them, so much as she doesn’t want to fail at this.
    And despite his good looks though and he semi-wokeness I don’t think Chris Evans is a good catch for any girl. He reeks of “I’m never gonna leave my fratboy years and I’m gonna come home drunk from a party while you’re at home with the baby.” I think anyone who ends up with him is gonna have to put up with a lot of behavior they shouldn’t.

    • CCi says:

      I completely agree with you! She needs this relationship to work out because she looks like a fool for leaving a loving and adoring husband for a relationship that failed after roughly a year. She thought that hot, famous guy was ready to scoop her up and she didn’t give a damn about dropping her husband for that opportunity. Any relationship where you care about status over emotion will never work out. Insecurity city.

      He says he wants to be a husband and father, but I think he’ll be a terrible one. You’re right on the money with your prediction. I can’t see him changing his current lifestyle or having a part in anything that might inconvenience him even in the smallest way. He clearly can’t stand putting in any hard work or effort (look at his relationships and body of work). Marriage and kids are always constant work. Good luck with that, bro.

  20. S says:

    Evans isn’t super pub with his relationships, but it is clear he’s very willing to be on-off again with all his girlfriends, as he and Minka have done this at least half a dozen times, so I’m not even slightly surprised. Appears as if he tends to revisit pretty much endlessly until they go elsewhere and marry.

    As much as this site said Evans and Slate looked super awkward at the Gifted premiere, there were also lots of pics of them hugging, laughing and looking very cozy. I expected they’d get back together at some point.

    My gut says that woke frat boy Evans won’t actually make a real commitment until pretty late in life. Think until then he’s likely enjoying his endless options way too much to truly settle down.

    • CCi says:

      He’s Hollywood’s new, less attractive George Clooney. LOL! But at least George admitted he didn’t want to settle down and was only having fun prior to finding Amal.

  21. Maura says:

    lol the official reason for their breakup was scheduling conflicts but in that Vulture interview, I don’t think Jenny mentioned it and said there were too many differences between them, he was basically too famous and they “threw down” hard with the fighting. i suppose scheduling conflicts looks better on paper for a reunion.

    • Sigh... says:

      Evans had been in Boston for months before (and months after) the breakup and Slate had finished filming and was off for months with him when this “schedule conflict” was supposed to have happened.

      Like you said, the truth was probably closer to what she later spilled: relentless fighting (“threw down hard”) over fundamental differences (“we’re really, really different”).

  22. senna says:

    Gaaah, I feel SO conflicted about this. I love Jenny, and think she’s so smart and well-spoken; because she can be very silly and is very feminine, she never gets credit for being thoughtful, as she can be. I loved the emotional openness of her interview about Chris. It was really generous towards him. I know many people were like, “ugh, too much,” but I honestly don’t think it’s bad to say nice, heartfelt words about an ex, if you can – I think it shows you can reflect on things and not bedevil someone because they’re no longer with you, but acknowledge the good person they still are rather than being like “oh, that jerk? Chris who?”

    I also love Chris’s whole “I’m a handsome, neurotic actor who wants to be a serious thespian” thing, but he does seem to have some commitment issues, and the breakup did seem to be one sided. As a spectator, I’m excited; were I Jenny’s friend, I’d be burning up her phone with BUT WHAT ABOUT HOW IT ENDED LAST TIME? ARE YOU REALLY SUUURE?! texts.

    • Laura says:

      It’s about privacy and respect, though.

      She might be very happy to tell all about everything but she knew damn well she was inviting a media storm into his life too with her comments.
      Why could she not have just said ‘he’s a lovely guy and we’ll always be friends’?

      It was literally nothing to do with the general public/media but she invited the world in. It was thoughtless and selfish at best and possibly calculating at worst.

      • senna says:

        I see this point. I hope any celeb at the other end of a breakup always asks their ex, “so can I talk about you in a general way?” Of course, that’s supremely optimistic and Jenny’s comedy has always been very confessional, so maybe she decides to tell these stories without permission. You’re right that it does invite talking about them both in the same breath, and invites further attention being paid to Chris, even if the attention is positive.

    • Kace says:

      The same interview where she said they fought a lot? Or, I believe her words were “throw down hard.” She also said they were too different and many other things that were far from “generous.” In fact, didn’t she compare him to “primary colors?” I honestly don’t see that as a compliment. I also don’t understand this fascination of romanticizing what can certainly be described as a toxic relationship given the details Jenny gave in the interview.

      • M says:

        In another interview, she said that he called her crazy, she used to call him a piece of shit, made her feel bad about his love for football.

      • Laura says:

        She, among MANY other things, said he was the kindest guy ever and basically said that they were just very different people…
        The primary colours thing was just about honesty and vibrancy I guess..

        What does ‘throw down hard’ mean btw? I’ve googled it and still come up with nada

      • Laura says:


        What interview was this?

      • senna says:

        I actually reread this interview because I was like, “this doesn’t sound like the piece I read!” I see your interpretation – here’s how I read the bits you mentioned: I thought when Jenny said they “threw down hard” she meant they gave their relationship their all. Of course, I recall from another interview that they really liked play-fighting with each other, so maybe my interpretation is off. The entire rest of the interview in Vulture is a description of Jenny as very emotionally extroverted, so that’s the context in which I read it, rather than about harmful fights. The “primary colours” comment didn’t come across as “that man is basic,” in context, because she used it in relation to purity and open-heartedness.

        I don’t know! There’s nothing personally incriminating about Chris in that interview. It’s like, Chris is a high-energy person who’s into sports and playing literal board games, who is also emotional and giving. There’s no embarrassing personal details; it’s more like she went in there trying to describe his character in a good way. I don’t even see what could be toxic about the relationship itself – it sounded like Jenny stood up for what she wanted in terms of being a feminist and Chris was fine with that.

        Maybe the interpretation of events boils down to the “overlap” timeline where they were hooking up as her marriage ended vs afterwards. I don’t know that we can conclusively know how it happened. I don’t think there’s ANY excuse for cheating, ever, but it also seems odd to declare it for sure happened and hold it against her – not that that’s what you’re doing necessarily, but I’ve seen it from other commenters.

      • senna says:

        @M, I want to read this interview, too! Damn, that gets me down, if he really did call her crazy – like, even in a joking way, I don’t think you should call people crazy.

      • Jenna says:

        @senna “I’d love to be his friend one day, but we threw down pretty hard.” Context is everything. Wanting to be his friend one day? That means they are no longer friends because they threw down pretty hard. I’m not about to explain the entire interview for you though so maybe you need to reread it again.

      • senna says:

        @Jenna, I’m aware of what a metaphor is; perhaps you could use a refresher.

      • Jenna says:

        @ senna But “we threw down pretty hard” isn’t a metaphor??? It’s a statement with no allusion to them fighting. So, maybe trying to question my knowledge is best kept for someone who apparently isn’t staying on topic?

      • Jenna says:

        Meant to say *no allusion to them fighting because it states that they fought.

      • Raina says:

        @Senna, you seem overly invested in them. Also, to step in, I don’t think you know what a metaphor is because nothing Jenna stated was mentioning a metaphor. When you throw down with someone, it’s fighting.

      • M says:

        @Laura It’s a podcast. in sundance, but I don’t know which one, his fans who were commenting on it.

  23. Bobafelty says:

    Jenny would be better off rewatching “He’s just not that into you” movie.

  24. A says:

    I honestly believe there’s a huge difference between Chris Evans’ twitter persona/public image and the real him. He’s basically a sleazy dude bro with one of the most efficient PR teams in Hollywood. Jenny Slate is Lena Dunham 2.0 no super decent guy is going to date that chick. Did anyone notice how he completely disappeared from Twitter as soon as celeb twitter scene was abuzz with sexual harassment discussion? You’d think a woke king like him would have a lot to say about these issues since he likes to pretend he’s Steve Rogers on twitter. Hmm maybe he got scared after how Ben Affleck was exposed. Someone needs to investigate THAT.

    • Laura says:

      Oh FFS,

      What evidence have you got for that?
      I’ve heard nothing but nice things about him and this tiresome habit of labelling guys ‘bros’ is getting dull now. Do people even know what that means?

      And he’s hardly a prolific twitterer… he has fits and starts when he finds the time and right now he’s filming the Avengers, so he’s pretty tied up.

      He RT’ed support for victims of sexual harassment in the light of what’s happened, but you know what? Twitter is not the benchmark to judge anyone’s commitment to truth and morality.
      it’s utterly ludicrous that we’ve got to the point where if someone doesn’t make a tweet statement on an issue, then they clearly don’t give a s***.

      There are some truly terrible people out there and I have to say I find it pretty disgusting that you’re concentrating your efforts on making some grotesque judgments about a good guy based on nothing at all except for the fact that you clearly just don’t like him.

      • A says:

        @Laura LOL Have you read anything about this guy besides his Wikipedia page and PR approved articles? First go and check out what kind of sleazy gossip is available about him, take your time and get back to me. I called him bro cause he’s a 36 year old frat boy duhhhh everyone knows that. According to pap in Atlanta Chris began shooting for Avengers in 2nd or 3rd week of September and he was still tweeting so yeah his sudden silence is DEFINITELY interesting. Its been a week since his last RT

        PS- RTs don’t count. I expect more from the outspoken woke king of Twitter.

        Um, yes. I have been following his career for years, have never visited his wikipedia page and unlike you I have no interest in reading trashy gossip sites, who everyone with a brain stem realises, have very very little basis in truth or accuracy.
        The fact that you are citing such BS as your sources, speaks volumes and proves my original point quite nicely.

        And again, explain to me what a ‘frat boy bro’ actually is… Seeing as you are so convinced he fits this description..

        Also, he DID tweet about the Weinstein case, as he tweets often about important societal and political issues..
        Though he certainly isn’t some brainless twit sitting on social media every day, seeking validation and attention. He never has been.
        Hence why he often has breaks in between what he posts..
        And RTs ‘don’t count’? Oh, please grow up. There’s a real world outside of Twitter where people actually action positive change and the fact that you want to see someone constructing 140 characters of their own words on current affairs before you’ll believe that they care, says everything we need to know about you.

        Again, I find your comments and fantasies about a nice guy who has literally done nothing to warrant it, pretty disturbing.

      • M says:

        He didn’t talk about Weinstein because he has a dirty past. He called Black Widow a whore, he said that Salma Hayeck is the bomb stereotyping the Latin woman, he openly spoke look at the women’s butt, he looked at the boobs of Elizabeth Olsen on the red carpet. If he said something, it could have been the same as Ben Affleck. Many men were silent after Ben Affleck.

      • A says:

        @Laura the fact that your trying to deny that Chris Evans is a frat boy tells me you know nothing, Jon Snow. You sound like one of those Tumblr stans that believe he’s real life version of Captain America. You wanna defend his non existent honour? then go ahead do it. I’m not trying to stop you. Its not like he’s gonna get exposed any time soon, straight white dudes only get exposed when they are past their prime so there’s still some time for him.

        @M Agree, all of them including Evans went into silence mode after Ben Affleck was exposed. And if you carefully look at those Elizabeth Olsen boob peeking pics, you’ll see that in one of the pics his hand is dangerously close to her side boob before he places it on her waist. He’s has been doing red carpets since his 20s and still cannot find a costars’ waist? I find that hard to believe, such a dirty sleazebag.

    • Lightpurple says:

      Except he didn’t disappear from Twitter. He RT’d several statements about harassment from others. He also RT’d several condemnations of Trump’s anti-birth control acts. He doesn’t tweet a lot but he has tweeted about this.

    • Laura says:


      Right… OK, so he gets captured on camera shooting a glance at boobs, jokingly expresses a preference when asked, by a woman, the boobs or butts question in a podcast and you’re lumping him in with predators for that?

      Are you effing kidding me?

      The black widow comment he apologised for – anyone who actually WATCHED the video can see it was just a silly joke. I’ve had conversations like that and so have my friends…

      And YOUR interpretation of the Salma Hayek comment was just that. *Your* very twisted and nonsensical interpretation.
      We’ve all got crushes that we would consider marriage material and others that we purely lust after. That’s it. In what insane world does that equate to him denigrating latino women?
      If a woman had said exactly the same thing about a man, you wouldn’t have batted an eyelid.

      This kind of crazy makes me sick because when you have just loopy insults being thrown at ALL men for no reason whatsoever, that allows actual misogyny to prevail and be drowned out.

      • M says:

        @Laura You seem to know a lot about him for who saysyou he doesn’t know. As a Latina woman, his comment is offensive. Latin women are always seen for sex, we are stereotyped all the time because of our bodies. I met this English guy, he wanted to know more about sex and latin women than about me.
        A man looking at the breasts and butt of a woman is offensive,. There are many women who are uncomfortable with it. If you think it’s okay, it’s up to you, but a lot of women do not like that.

      • Erinn says:

        I mean, nothing better than a ‘silly joke’ between a couple of dudes calling a woman a whore. Comedy gold!

        I don’t care if he was joking – you don’t do that. This isn’t a conversation in his house with a couple of friends (still not right) this is something being filmed. This is literally him at work. His job involved promoting the movie, and during ‘working hours’ he made that kind of sexist, stupid comment. I’m going to go ahead and guess you and your friends don’t make those kinds of jokes in the workplace – otherwise that’s a huge HR issue.

        He apologized – which is great. But an apology isn’t some sort of magical thing that makes the crappy things someone does disappear.

        I get the idea that there’s a certain accessibility with actors that there never used to be – where you can feel like you know them as a person more than you could in the past. I’ve had actors I really liked say disappointing or outright offensive things – but I don’t look for ways to explain it away. I take a tally of what they’ve said or done and decide if I can support someone who thinks/acts that way. If they start making changes for the better – then that’s great. But if they just apologize and move on like nothing happened that’s often not enough for me to continue admiring them.

        By the sounds either Jenny was partially exposing that he isn’t as wonderful as he seems – or she was purposely making it look like they had terrible fights to make him look bad. Either scenario isn’t a great one.

        At the end of the day, I’m more willing to believe that every single actor out there is hiding SOMETHING negative. I don’t think it’s a stretch to believe that Chris might not be super bright/woke and he enjoys the positive press it gains him when he says things people want to hear. Even the nicest of guys have things that they need to work on – people need to grow. Is he absolutely a douche-bro? Maybe. I don’t know him – and nobody really knows him personally, just like any other actor.

    • magnoliarose says:

      He’s Affleck in a better package without the addiction. He is dude to the bone and in truth she is perfect for him.

  25. Riks says:

    Ewwww she came in a podcast recently and she went all cray cray and said she would want a baby. Pretty sure she’s plotting getting knocked up by him already.

    • Sophia's Side eye says:

      Wow, this is quite sexist. Women don’t impregnate themselves.

      • Mewsie says:

        Women are not pristine butterflies, we are just as capable of scheming and deceiving to get what we want as men are, if not more.

        Women might not be able to impregnate themselves but they are able to lie to their partners.

        And Chris, with his vocal and loudly expressed desire to have kids, is the perfectly primed target. I found it strange that Jenny went from not wanting kids to crying on podcasts about how incomplete and sad she is without them. She’s deleted her a**hole tweets, suddenly loves football and wants kids. I see her.

  26. Div says:

    Yikes. I know that breakups often get “publicly reported” much later than when they actually happened, but the timing of her first husband and Evans was always…odd. I honestly think Disney/Marvel stepped in to quash any gossip that Captain America was either a) stepping out with a married woman or b) she left her husband for him or c) both. Considering there was basically no gossip about the times he showed up obviously drunk at a few red carpets despite there being video…I do think it’s possible that the Big Mouse has that power.

    When you get together in a messy way, 99% percent of the time it’s going to end in a messy way. Maybe they’ll make it last, but between his privacy and her confessional nature and how they got together..this just seems like a yikes.

    • CCi says:

      I think a concerted effort is being made to clean up her social media pages. She’s removing tags of herself smoking pot and partaking in other problematic behavior, and a lot of her sketchy/inappropriate tweets are being deleted. Even old articles where she made off color remarks are getting deleted from the internet and from major publication websites. Someone up top is working overtime to try and control the narrative here. The only problem is that receipts exist and a lot of them are out on the internet…you can delete things, but you can’t erase the past.

  27. Nora says:

    I reread the Vulture interview she gave after they broke up. It’s interesting to note she said despite liking each other, ‘“we’re really, really different,” with different social circles and different lifestyles.’ I don’t really think that’s changed much. Then there is “Chris is a very, very famous person.” Still the same. She goes on about basically being stressed about his lifestyle. The last part everyone is bringing up is “We’re not on bad terms, but we haven’t really seen each other, spoken a lot…I think it’s probably best. I’d love to be his friend one day, but we threw down pretty hard.” So for anyone confused about “threw down” there is no way that is used positively in this sentence.

  28. FishBeard says:

    I’ve always had a soft spot for her because of PAR. She seems a little dumb when it comes to relationships, but sweet. He doesn’t strike me as the guy to be in a long-term relationship with, more of like an occasional hit.

  29. Raina says:

    I am getting such secondhand embarrassment from some of the shipper comments and interpretations of literal words actually spoken as if they mean something else lol. I guess it’s cute to make everything seem like sunshine and rainbows.

  30. Angel says:

    Related to the Chris Hemsworth interview a bit ago where he said he was away for a long time filming and for publicity then he and his wife had to learn how to love again, I get that for him this may not be backsliding but just the need for easy companionship. For her I don’t get it.

    • magnoliarose says:

      This is true. I decided I loved my husband and my new baby more than I enjoyed my career. No regrets at all. Even though I dabbled sometimes and I have turned down work, there is no way I want to leave my little loves and my heart. Relationships with absences can work for some couples, but very long absences are harder unless the partners are very independent people. It can also breed suspicion and insecurity.

  31. Lucy says:

    The tweets and other problematic behavior are new to me. I saw them for myself. Yikes. Something like that probably doesn’t hinder her in the least, but something like that could hinder Chris considering so many people associate him with Captain America. I think Stan Lee even warned him about keeping his image clean. He probably has a lot of young fans or just fans in general who probably wouldn’t be please to see or know of the tweets. I don’t think he’s aware of her old tweets as she’s cleaned up the derogatory language some, but with his being outspoken on Twitter contrasting what Jenny has done, it will only make him appear hypocritical as she would be the type of person he would normally call out.

    • Lightpurple says:

      Homophobic tweets would bother him. His brother is gay.

      • Corey says:

        @Lightpurple That would explain why she seemed keen to delete the tweets then since his entire family wouldn’t be happy to see them. It’s also not good for Chris in general since a lot of his fans would probably be bothered by them too.

    • magnoliarose says:

      Of course, he is aware of her old tweets, but they are old and not nearly as outrageous as anyone is making it sound. Using the word tranny as a joke was accepted until it was realized it was insensitive and gender issues became more mainstream and understood. She deleted tweets from 2010 most likely because she has grown just as cultural awareness has. The term wasn’t malicious even liberal and gay people used it as humor until 2012 or so and then debated until now it is considered hate speech. Back then it wasn’t. It is insanity especially in light of how at the time it wasn’t offensive yet. The other ones are just stupid jokes.
      There seems to be some rabid stans of Chris’ who dug up anything they could find negative about her and screen grabbed them and spread it all over the internet to assassinate her character when if it were as scandalous as they try to make it sound it would have been a known thing and it isn’t. Because it is lame.

      • Riks says:

        She’s very careful about how the public views her. If she gets even one negative comment in any of her IG, Twitter posts, she immediately deletes the entire thing. Clearly, she still has no idea when she crosses her limit. She doesn’t want to be seen as Lena Dunham 2.0. Eventhough she is just another graduate from her school. So yeah. All that ‘she must have grown as a person’ is all blah and BS. Also, if you don’t find even the tweet where she fat shames a big boy in a swimming offensive, clearly, you belong to the same school too.

    • Shijel says:

      Hell. I liked her a lot before… this. And everything in this thread. Welp. Bye, Jenny. As sad a good bye as this is because I loved her as an on-screen actress and a voice actress.

  32. mandy says:

    Oh, those homophobic tweets are not a good look for her. There are some other problematic ones as well that she seems to think are comedic. In this case, backsliding is probably not a good idea, especially going by some of the quotes posted from her interview. Outside of their scheduling conflicts, it looks like the issues had to do with lifestyle and actually personality/who they are as people. She seemed to even acknowledge they had a lot of differences and fought.

  33. Loo Loo says:

    She said all that about their relationship and yet she went back for more? Come on girl, get yourself some self-esteem

  34. Katey says:

    Now that I have reference for why so many fans are upset, it makes a lot more sense and is justified. Her tweets are reckless and passing it off as comedy with the use of slurs is downright atrocious. She basically trivializes things and then makes herself out to be a voice of women. In Chris associating with her, whether he is aware of the tweets or not, makes the them question him if he can associate himself with her as her brand of whatever it is would be something he would call out. Makes sense.

    • KBB says:

      What did you google to see these tweets? I can’t find them and no one is posting links.

      • Margo says:

        You can either search google for “jenny slate homophobic tweets” and click on images to view the screencaps (they’re spread around). Some of the other derogatory tweets will show up too.

  35. JA says:

    Wait – so random onlookers said they seemed like they were on a date LOL! This looks like the Lainey article finding some twitter barista troll and adding it to a dinner that more than just Robert and Susan were at and running. Interesting that Landline was released yesterday…. just an observation.

    • Sylvia says:

      I had to Google what you meant by landline was released – the DVD of her movie came out yesterday? That is interesting… but I’m sure it’s just a coincidence 😉

    • Jess says:

      That seems overly convenient. She really benefits from this considering the first go around she gained followers and more attention. Any press is good press? Round 2 doesn’t seem different. I think there were even articles about her being able to sell out her comedy shows because of Chris and the possibility of his fans being able to see him in person (since only the Boston shows sold out).

  36. Unicorn_Realist says:

    I didnt follow my own advice… “always move forward”.. I backslid after 10 years… blissful for 5 months. Left after it being a complete disaster and then backslid again to same person after a month. Currently plotting a way out. Not a good idea. Next time around will be worse for her. The embarrasment and hurt will be magnified. It is for me.

  37. browniecakes says:

    My money is on him going home to LA with Dodger, and that’s all.

  38. Miss M says:

    She has been d!ckmatized. Girl, have some self-esteem. You can do better than that. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️
    Go find a College dream boyfriend or something… 😂

  39. Curiosity says:

    How can he stand the voice?

  40. Mal says:

    OK. Let me get this straight. You acknowledge the fact the both of you are waaay different, have different lifestyles, fought a lot and didn’t talk to each other for awhile and you were stressed about the relationship. All of this occurs to you and you willingly go back for a second round? How does that even make sense? The guy is still famous and has his own lifestyle while you seem to have your own thing going. Does anyone ever take a moment and realize how that may not be the best idea to go around round?

  41. Maria Urena says:

    I wonder if his family is bracing themselves for poopygate two.

  42. Maria Urena says:

    She still looks so much older than him.
