Jenny Slate tweeted about her ‘boyfriend’ celebrating her turtleneck purchases

In case you completely missed it – and how could you? – Jenny Slate and Chris Evans are back on. The first “reports” of their reconciliation began happening in October. They were seen together in Atlanta, in what seemed like a double date. Then they tweet-flirted with each other and it was so twee, it grossed me out a little bit. Then they were seen together in Washington DC, where Jenny was doing stand-up. The icing on the twee cupcake was that Chris posted a video of his dog “singing” and Jenny could be heard laughing off-camera in the video. The point is that they were not hiding the fact that they are back together. The point is that they actually want you to know that they’re happening again. So much so that now Jenny Slate is flat-out tweeting about her “boyfriend.”

The lets/let’s mistake is pretty common, albeit not as prevalent as the your/you’re mistakes that happen on Twitter on an hourly basis. My biggest peeve is people using possessive apostrophes when their intention is plural. Like, turtlenecks/turtleneck’s (Jenny didn’t do that, I’m just saying it bugs me). Anyway, I’m just trying to fill some space because I don’t really want to talk about Jenny Slate and Chris Evans. I think they’re both really f–king messy, but even then – I don’t have a very strong opinion about them. A lot of people have strong opinions. A lot of people really think Jenny Slate is the downfall of Chris Evans as a person. I understand your standom and I sympathize – we’ve all been there, when our celebrity crush dates someone unfortunate, or someone we just don’t like. If it makes you feel any better, I think Chris Evans is a total mess about women in general, so his stans should just make peace with the fact that he’s always going to be bad at love (sorry, I just heard that Halsey song & it’s stuck in my head). I’m bad at love/But you can’t blame me for tryin’

    She’s a clever and talented actress.
    Why are people so invested in the love life of their faves? Aren’t we there for their art?

  2. Lily says:

    She’s such a troll. Also the articles that came out after those tweets DO NOT confirm anything. All of it is based on tweets & “onlookers”.

    There was a People article put out by Chris’ team that said he’s dating around so this woman needs to take it easy. She’s desperate as hell, & the only time she gets coverage is if it involves him.

  3. Darla says:

    I find her incredibly annoying but i don’t care who she dates.

  4. lisa says:

    this would be annoying yet typical if she was a teenager, this just aint cute

  5. Lorelai says:

    I have secondhand embarrassment for her. I don’t know how old she is, but this is how I (and my friends) acted in junior high school, not as grown women FFS.

  6. Beth says:

    Why would anyone tweet about something like that? She’s annoying, and I honestly feel bad for her if she’s back with Chris

  7. JA says:

    So try hard. He’s gonna leave inevitably and she will be just as pathetic as she was the last time he dumped her.

  8. monette says:

    I like both of them, but not together.
    This is going to end badly…for her…again. And that’s very sad. She never learns.
    Why all the freaking social media toying? Are the two of you sooo desperate for attention? What a turn off!

  9. Reef says:

    Can’t judge. Won’t judge. If I was spooning with the superior Chris, I, too, would let the world know in the most annoying of ways. EVERYDAY!

  10. dlc says:

    She’s 35, he’s 36. A bit old for this tweet nonsense. And that turtleneck thing was neither funny or charming.

  11. Nicole says:

    I’m already over 2.0 with this relationship. Just like Patton and his wife’s annoying tweets…there’s such a thing as trying TOO HARD.

  12. Izzie the Other says:

    I’ve never watched any Marvel movies so I know nothing about Chris Evans and Mona Lisa. They’re way too old for the whole “omg, my BOYFRIEND” thing on twitter. But other than that, I couldn’t care less.

    Fans do, however, need to grow up as well. Just because you like someone does not give you the right to dictate their love lives. It happens with just about every actor from 25 to 50: Henry Cavill, Alexander Skarsgard, Kit Harrington, Benedict Cumberbatch etc.. Fans get angry if their favorite celebrity doesn’t date someone they feel is “worthy” of their greatness. Have an opinion and keep it moving.

    • ell says:

      yeah, i agree with this. i mean some snark is ok for a laugh and i understand it, like i used to crazy love mila kunis (and kinda still do, she’s so charming) but i can’t stand kutcher so i’m always sarcastic about the whole thing. but some fans take it way too far, it becomes quite uncomfortable.

  13. Andy says:

    A new chapter of their PR saga! So, what’s next? Pap walk with singing Dodger? Red carpet with turtlenecks? I’m dying here, I sooo wanna know

  14. island_girl says:

    It looks like they are together again and that the “boyfriend” that she’s referring to is Chris. I’m guessing it won’t end well, just because she seems so hyped and invested. But maybe he’s super excited too, and just has a better handle of himself social media wise. Regardless, she needs to chill with her social media “my boyfriend” post. Just chill Jenny. Chill.

  15. Valiantly Varnished says:

    This woman is so annoying but Chris isn’t much better. He’s such a human boomerang. He doesn’t seem to know how to end a relationship and just let it be over. Every woman he has been with and broken up with, they manage to reconcile only to split again a few months later. I give this go around another 4 months. Tops.

  16. Ginger says:

    Somebody get this girl a Gatorade to quench that thirst.

  17. KBB says:

    I’m surprised she’s not more reserved this time around. She was so embarrassing during their relationship and breakup before, you’d think she’d want to be a little more low-key this time around.

    Instead, she’s still doing the performative “Look everybody!! I’m dating Chris Evans!!!” thing, and he’s obviously still encouraging it. It’s going to end the exact same way.

    • Cora says:

      I wasn’t sure how best to describe her actions, but I think you nailed it with “performative” and I almost want to say add some jazz hands to it. The tweets are so…exaggerated or sensationalized that she’s seemingly trying to hype it up while still playing coy. It gives me second-hand embarrassment that it looks so much like a need for attention.

    • CCi says:

      She has to keep mentioning him because it’s the only way she can stay relevant and well known. She craves attention and being attached to him gives her just that.

      • Tara says:

        It really seems that way. There is always a lull when it comes to news about her, but somehow she always comes back with something else to get her back in the headlines. It’s not even about her work, it’s always about her and Chris. She’s currently filming Venom and yet she’s making it about her relationship.

  18. Wilma says:

    Not invested in either of them, though I do think he’s the superior Chris based on my very superficial knowledge of the Chrisses. But I do think we could have expected this to happen given the way they talked about eachother in interviews after the break up. There clearly were a lot of feelngs on both sides.

  19. Anna says:

    I wouldn’t even rule it out that this is a PR stunt from his side, to not be seen as the a**hole who cruelly dumped her.

    • Margot says:

      Almost a year after breakup?? He talked about her in one of Gifted interview as a response to her Vulture oversharing. People have moved on and no one cared. It very much does feel like a PR stunt but rather for her. He’s not gaining anything on publicizing it, she’s gaining press she would never otherwise have.

  20. browniecakes says:

    She’ll be the next one carrying around a new puppy, alone.

  21. JG says:

    Having never seen any of the Captain America movies, I can’t understand his appeal. He looks so blah and not really handsome. She is very cute but the fact that she is so desperate at 35 or 36 (!!) makes her seem so sad and insecure.

  22. Miss V says:

    This couple is ridiculous. Like, a joke that they’re trying to make people take seriously. Only all their efforts to validate and change timelines and exaggerate feelings makes them look more pathetic. Actually, they both may be perfect for each other….

  23. lyla says:

    i don’t hate her, but she seems exhausting. she’s so thirsty. and he must love on and off relationships. he has had one with minka and jessica, maybe he should be captain boomerang instead of captain america.

    incidentally, i had a dream about chris last night. lol.

  24. Leigh says:

    I wouldn’t say Jenny is his downfall at all. She’s a unique and interesting actor/comedian/artist who makes Chris Evans far more interesting than his prom king appearance presents.

  25. cheeseburger1 says:

    I honestly don’t understand how Chris thinks he can have a future with her, if that’s something he intends to do. She has the mind of a middle schooler. He needs to watch out, if she can leave a 10 year relationship for something “better”, she won’t hesitate to leave him once she thinks she found someone better than him, who might take an interest in her.. Although I don’t think anyone ever would.

  26. whybother says:

    I mean, I’m all about age is just a number thingy but as we get older, we suppose to get wiser, right? Teenager doing all this socmed overshare is already borderline annoying, but people around my age doing the same? Didnt she remembered what happened last time when she/they overshared and it exploded on their face (more on her face tbh)? Why do the same the second time around?

  27. Jack says:

    Turtleneck. Wait, he’s uncut?

  28. Cora says:

    Her tweets are usually a word scramble so if I’m understanding this correctly, her boyfriend (Chris – why are they being so coy about the obvious? It comes off as attention-seeking) is generous and dreamy because he cheers her on when she shows him her online shopping buys? I understand being a child at heart but by having someone cheer you on for such a mundane task that isn’t a feat to an adult, it just makes her seem so childish. It’s like when a parent cheers on their kid for finishing their vegetables. How can anyone take her seriously?

  29. Chloeee says:

    Sometimes I like her but sometimes she’s a bit much. Her drunk history episode was…yeah. Annoying.

  30. Phoenix says:

    She IS Lena Dunham 2.0. Both are infantile and disingenuous about being “alternative” and not mainstream.

  31. Miley says:

    It’s surprising he took her back, considering how she’s oversharing about everything, him included. I still remember the bad taste in my mouth when reading that Vulture interview. In the same sentence she was saying how she respects his intention to keep his love life private and then went on quoting intimate stuff he would say. Such a hypocrite. But if he’s giving her green light now, then he should prepare himself for losing his privacy completely, she’ll share every most private thing about him just to get press. Especially once he dumps her again.
