I had to go back and check to see when we last discussed Jenny Slate and Chris Evans. They met and fell in love on the set of Gifted in 2015. Their affair helped put the final nails in the coffin of her marriage, and after that, she was ride-or-die for Chris. They spent a chunk of 2016-17 together but then he dumped her and she did a really TMI interview about their breakup, and months later (circa late summer 2017), they got back together (because Chris loves to backslide). They traveled together. They real-estate shopped together. She tweeted twee things about shopping for turtlenecks with his approval. She spent Christmas with his family. And that was the last time we talked about them – we haven’t discussed them all year, shockingly. And now this: they’ve broken up. Again.
One of the Internet’s favorite coupled might have called it quits again. Chris Evans, 36, and Jenny Slate, 35, are not together anymore after rekindling their relationship late last year, according to a new profile of the Infinity War actor in the New York Times.
As Evans recalls a book he read while they were still together, the article states that the two called it off recently. Evans says he learned to listen more while reading Rebecca Solnit’s The Mother of All Questions: “The hardest thing to reconcile is that just because you have good intentions, doesn’t mean it’s your time to have a voice,” the actor, now starring in Lobby Hero on Broadway, told the Times.
If you have to break the news that you’ve broken up with someone, best do it in the paper of record, the New York Times. That’s a big ouch. So far, Jenny has been radio silent on Twitter and Instagram, so I can only assume there’s another interview coming. I actually hope she does that again – it would liven things up, gossip-wise.
