Jenny Slate & Chris Evans tweet-flirted this weekend, and they are so twee

When we last checked in with Jenny Slate and Chris Evans, it seemed like they were getting friendly again, after a nine-month cooling-off period following their breakup around January of this year. People who are (over)invested in Jenny and/or Chris tell me that this is Chris’s m.o. – he tends to get back with exes months after a breakup, or he keeps in touch with ex-girlfriends for potentially friends-with-benefits situations. In any case, Chris and Jenny were seen together on some kind of date in Atlanta. And that’s not all – they are now “flirting” on Twitter.

I’m not really feeling this. Mostly because I did a two-minute creep on Slate’s Twitter and Instagram and I found her social media persona to be pretty annoying and twee. I think that’s probably “on brand” for her, but still… not great. Anyway, I guess we’re supposed to be in a tizzy because Evans and Slate are Twitter-flirting. If they get back together – like, for-real back together – I will not be pleased. They are not good for each other. At all.

    Let them live, lol.

    • HeidiM says:

      This just seems like her saving face to me. After the break up she came off as super desperate. Just seems like she wants to prove that she’s not that affected IMO.

  2. Laughy saphy says:

    Those tweets make my face hurt from cringing.

    • detritus says:

      is this not just her flirting with him? i see two tweets from her. thats the super cringe part.

    • Anna says:

      It’s funny how this fits perfectly Into the stories following their breakup that it was too much like high school.
      I’m getting a lot of second hand embrassement reading this tweets. You would think they were in their early twenties and new to Hollywood to be tweeting garbage like this lol

    • Reef says:

      As he’s the superior Chris, I understand. But my pride just wouldn’t let me acknowledge him in public like this after a breakup.

    • SJ says:

      Agree. This stuff makes me dislike them both. Grow up already!
      Neither of these two is even close to being a teenager IRL but this stuff makes me think they are both dumb and dull on top of it all.

    It’s all so… 7th grade

    • Raina says:

      You think this is cringe worthy? You should’ve seen some of my 7th grade notes to my then best friend…
      Me: I sat on something wet now afraid to get up cos it looks like I pissed myseld
      B.F: Doesn’t matter. Everyone knows you by now.
      Me: what??
      B.F: You’re not normal
      Me: You’re a slutty Bitch
      BF.: But at least I can get up and walk out if class without looking like need to wear diapers.
      -those were the least embarrassing moments by comparison to what fresh hell 8th grade had in store-
      Awww….good times.

    That relationship didn’t seem to end well, and she did say that they are so different. Sometimes differences can benefit the relationship, it didn’t seem to in theirs. I know some folks get back together after a break up and it works out, but several do not.

    Also per People magazine: Chris has been dating around and has been seeing women in Atlanta

  5. JA says:

    Sadly she is that friend we all have who will take him back each time he leaves and tell herself he’s changed or she can change him because what they have is SPECIAL! Cliche as F… also Chris Pine is the BEST Chris

    • Jag says:

      Exactly! Except for the part where Chris Pine is the best Chris. He’s the best actor, but the best Chris is still Hemsworth. lol

      • Megs says:

        You are both correct that either of these Chrises are far superior to Evans, but they’re all kind of blah to me. I’d argue the best Chris is Krispy Kreme 🍩!

      • Rey says:

        I don’t understand the Hollywood Chris craze. Then again I do not find blond, blue eyed all American type of guys all that attractive…

        Except for Ryan Gosling, damn… Even I don’t understand.

      • CeeCee says:

        Hemsworth FTW every time.

      • browniecakes says:

        Walken.
        mic drop

      • Liquorice says:

        Ryan Gosling is the best Ryan. Ryan Reynolds is so not funny with his deadpool tweeting and he picks boring movies (though he can act) and is married to that nice but not very bright actress (what’s her name again?). Chris Pine is the best Chris. Chris Hemsworth is a nice man who could be half decent at acting but has such a wooden face (genetic, can’t do much about it). Chris Evans is too bro.

  6. Mia4s says:

    I’m already bored.

    Although it’s interesting that they are doing this now. Does someone have something to promote? I wonder if someone was naughty and needs to distract from something.? PR is always deliberate.

    • Amara says:

      I think her movie Landline came out around the same time the dating rumors starting popping up.

      • island_girl says:

        That movie was released in the summer, however Landline was released via iTunes around the Chris/Jenny reconnected news.

  7. Cami says:

    Chris evans just doing this to create gossip about him. This is probably just to build up for the movie coming out in May called infinity war. He always does this type of promotion months b4 movie comes out. I’m so over him!

    • DiligentDiva says:

      “the movie coming out in May called Infinity War” You mean the biggest Marvel movie ever produced? Lol, I don’t think that needs any self-promotion. The idea that it does is laughable. Everyone knows that movies gonna come out and will do well.
      Chris is back with Jenny because that’s what Chris does, he goes back to exes alot. Jenny’s no different then Minka.

      • geekychick says:

        God, I must live under a rock, bc I haven’t heard about “biggest marvel production ever”….
        I mean, I suppose Marvel and production are counting on more people watching his than just comic-book fans, right? Because let me tell you, as a European of 30 years, not one of my friends particularly cares to go see it. My husband will go if some of his friends are interested, but no, I bet if I asked him does he know about new Marvel movie coming out, he’d be totally uninformed.
        So, yes, Marvel needs promotion. This film needs promotion. Because every movie ever made can only benefit from more promotion and more viewers.

    • Lightpurple says:

      I doubt the MCU needs to promote Infinity Wars by exploiting Chris Evans’s personal life months in advance. Kevin Feige currently has Ruffalo, Hemsworth and Hiddleston out on the PR circuit now with Cate Blanchette and Tessa Thompson dropping hints on whether they are or aren’t in it. A huge promo for it arrives in theaters next week in the shape of Thor: Ragnarok. They have another huge promo in the shape of Black Panther hitting theaters in February. There’s supposedly one scene in Infinity Wars with over 60 known characters in the scene. They don’t need it irrelevant tweets from Jenny Slate 7 months ahead of time to draw interest to that film

      • Sigh... says:

        Yeah. Disney/Marvel doesn’t do amateur stuff like this. They are MUCH more obvious and obnoxious w/ their multimillion dollar campaigns. Plus, Avengers 4 is in production now, along w/ Thor’s push. They could just “leak” non-spoiler pics or an unfinished trailer and the internet would cream itself like it did over Cap’s beard.

        If we’re going to tenuously tie this to some promotion, instead of just 2 sloppy ppl being sloppy, SHE actually had a “Landline” DVD release (on the press junket is when she spilled about this relationship) that coincided perfectly when this all was made public last week. But sometimes being sloppy is just being sloppy. I’m going with sloppy.

  8. Nicole says:

    Ugh no. Please go back to fighting Nazis on twitter

  9. Nene says:

    so so cringe

  10. Lindy says:

    On a semi-related note… I swear I cannot keep all the various Chris-es (Chrises? Christophers? What is the proper plural of Chris?) straight. I may just be too old at 40. But even if you lined all of them up I’d score a zero on assigning names. Possible exception: Chris Pine.

  11. S says:

    This kinda reeks of her trying to prove to him that she can be the cool girl. That’s she can TOTALLY deal with his “dating around” and can definitely hang. You know, ‘I’m super casual and fun, don’t I seem extra fun and casual?’

  12. iseepinkelefants says:

    Maybe I’m thick but I see her replying to his tweets but he’s not saying anything back to her so how are they flirting? More like she’s thirst tweeting him and he’s ignoring it. I feel bad for her because she always seemed too thirsty and this is just more evidence. Girl he’s not even that great. Let it go.

    • Julianna says:

      His second tweet is a reply to her.

      But yeah, she tweeted at him first, and he couldn’t exactly ignore her without making her look kind of pathetic, so I don’t know that this is indicative of anything other than the fact she’s still hung up on him, which we basically knew.

    • detritus says:

      Ok, thats what I thought too. Like she was talking to herself, extra cringe lol.

      • Sophia's Side eye says:

        If you have a content blocker you can’t see his tweets, only hers. I was confused until I turned mine off. I guess they were embedded differently.

        Not that she’s not coming off a bit desperate. lol

  13. Miss V says:

    His PR shut the rumor of a reconciliation down, but the People article didn’t make the rounds. Most outlets are going with the narrative that they are back together.

    I feel like that top picture with the two of them looking like they are internally screaming tells us all we need to know about them as a couple….

  14. AngieB says:

    So many Chris’s, so little interest.

  15. Sesame says:

    Jenny gurl…. you’re gonna get your heart broken again … best to move on and find love/lust with someone else…

  16. Solo says:

    Well, considering her initial comment about he was like a dream guy in high school she could never land (however actually the creepy quite went), this seems about par for the course.

  17. Kittycat says:

    Jeez, is this how people flirt these days? Twelve years old people, maybe?

    And she looks desperate. Girl, please go find yourself some self-esteem.

  18. Andy says:

    Why everybody is ignoring the PEOPLE article where he basically says that, at most, she’s one of the many? Doesn’t sound so lovey-dovey to me.
    Btw I agree with Kaiser, she is annoying and her social media persona is embarrasing.

  19. Amara says:

    People ran an article mentioning a source that pretty much says Chris isn’t exclusive and is single. That goes against all of the other articles focused solely on the rumors and random “eyewitness” sightings. People doesn’t even call the dinner with RDJ and his wife a double date and mentions Avengers costars.

    As for flirting…didn’t he kind of leave her hanging though with her last tweet? It ended abruptly and then Monday the People article was posted lol.

  20. Penelope says:

    I hate feeling embarrassed for someone but I always feel embarrassed for her. She makes me cringe.

  21. HoustonGrl says:

    Girl, he’s just not that into you. Next!

  22. Lily says:

    Some folks here have already mentioned what should have been included in this post: Chris’ team shut down any relationship rumors she put out last week & confirmed that he has no interest in being in a relationship via PEOPLE mag.

    She’s desperate & her PR is working overtime.

  23. Ankhel says:

    Hm. This reminds me of my embarrassing flirting with my better half. Except he squeaks and tries ineffectively to run away when I tell him I’m coming for him. Sorry girl, you’re being twee and all, but Chris is clearly not squeaking for you.

  24. browniecakes says:

    Didn’t she go to the movies with John Hamm recently?

    • Island_girl says:

      This seems like a page taken out of the Blake Lively book of dating.

      She started dating Leo and then broke up with him for Ryan.

      Get the man you want with another man.

  25. Jenny says:

    I haven’t followed them at all so I don’t get this part that Kaiser writes: “They are not good for each other. At all.” That sounds so ominous – in what way aren’t they good for each other? I can buy he’s not good for her if he wasn’t that into her but in what way wasn’t she good for him if she was just “one of many”? If he wasn’t that emotionally invested in her how could he get hurt by being with her? Sorry, just confused by that.

  26. loveotterly says:

    I don’t know why people seem to think he’s out of her league. He’s only kind of cute and seems pretty boring…

  27. Me says:

    He never dates without the PR. He’ so contrived. The same old song. It’s boring now.

  28. Really? says:

    Gurl, you’re barking up the wrong tree…

  29. Kate Eileen says:

    Hmm, a little awkward/little cute at the same time?
    I have no idea what the dynamics of their relationship seemed like when they dated because I only payed a bit of attention to their outings, and saw Gifted and that was around when they were dating, right? I have to check that out.
    I like Jenny, she was hilarious when she worked with Nick Kroll and she seemed super down to earth and easy to talk to from an unnamed source who has been around her a few times. I like to believe the best in even the non A-list celebs, I’m naive like that.
    Maybe they’d be cute back together, who knows! Chris is cute, great Captain America through the years and the movies are my guilty pleasure. I dig Sebastian Stan a bit more because he seems to be stepping out of his comfort zone with certain movies he’s done/doing. Awesome Bucky Barnes as well! :)

    I guess Chris didn’t want to keep on changing her diapers.
