Chris Evans & Alba Baptista go IG-Official with a very cute jump-scare video

Last November, we learned (officially) that Chris Evans is dating Alba Baptista, a 25-year-old Portuguese actress. Chris is 41 years old. At the time, I hadn’t seen Alba in anything so it seemed kind of showmance-y to me, the established American movie star and the European ingénue. But since then, I did see Mrs. Harris Goes To Paris, and Alba plays the young Dior model (and she’s a philosophy student and full-time existentialist) and she was very cute in it. In any case, the pairing makes a bit more sense to me now. As it turns out, Chris and Alba want people to see how cute they are together. Chris posted this supercut of their year together, where they’re constantly jump-scaring each other. It’s kind of… adorable?

We’re getting a glimpse of Chris’s house, I think? Especially in the first few clips, although I think some of these locations are hotels or on-location housing situations. But yeah, they’re cute. I like that they’re doing it with “babe!” too – it’s sweet. Anyway, I know all of the Chris Evans fangirls are in shambles. Alba’s a cute young lady though, maybe this relationship is the real deal! You never know. Also: I highly recommend Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, it’s a sweet movie! Lucas Bravo from Emily In Paris is in it too.

    I must be getting old because I find these constant scaring games childish. I get it once or twice but these people do it constantly.

    My first reaction is to lash out so if people did this to me, they will probably end up with a black eye or something 🤷‍♀️

    • FHMom says:

      As cute as he is, I would tire of him in about a week. Jump scares are not for me.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Yeah same, I have CPTSD and if someone did this to me my reaction would either be freak out or lash out. I couldn’t be in a relationship with a person who thought this was fun, I would be constantly on edge.

    • ooshpick says:

      same. i had a friend who did that and one day i just said ‘don’t ever do that again’ in a demon voice. a violent childhood will make you jumpy enough

      • North of Boston says:

        Yeah people who do that to me will quickly learn a lesson they will not soon forget:

        “Do not mistake my benevolent nature for weakness”

        Just because I seem calm and breezy and am normally good-natured and kind and non-confrontational and non-reactive does not mean I won’t push you through a window In An Instant and convince you that you had it coming , if the situation calls for it.

        Random example: when I was at my 20’s, I pulled up at an ATM and a stranger jumped into my passenger seat, likely looking to rob me. 5′ 2″ meek looking female me ordered him to get out, without leaving my seat, raising a fist or brandishing a weapon. His eyes grew wide … and he got out and left.

        There will be no “series of jump scare pranks” in any relationship I’m in. It would be one, and done.

      • NotSoSocialB says:

        I’m 100% with you on this one. People don’t understand the instability of some dysfunctional homes.

    • Concern Fae says:

      Honestly, if these two both have jump scares as their love language, I’m so glad they found each other and hope they stay together forever.

    • NotSoSocialB says:

      Same. My father thought this was great fun to do to me as a kid. I warned my husband off about that behavior ahead of time, and he was very sympathetic. It may be some for fun, but it’s really disconcerting for others.

    • Lucy2 says:

      I’ll join you at the senior table because I too don’t find this endearing or fun.

  2. DouchesOfCambridge says:

    We’ve been doing jumpscare since we’re kids between ciblings, kept doing it to my husband and passing on the culture to my kids lol hilarious

  3. Sean says:

    I don’t find this cute. I despise jump scares as pranks and this seems staged.

    Also, I think some of this had to be filmed in hotel rooms/suites. The furniture in some of the clips has the generic upscale look that you find in hotels. If all of this was filmed in Chris’ house, his sense of style is quite basic.

    Lastly, his 41 to her 25. Oof. While she is a full-gown adult, the 16 year age difference feels so cliché. Hopefully they truly have a wonderful relationship because otherwise, Chris Evans has become that stereotypical middle-aged star dating a much, much younger woman.

    Maybe I’m just being pessimistic this morning.

    • Orangeowl says:

      I agree that a lot of them seem staged. It got really tiresome after about the first 2 or 3. She is adorable, though. He’s so…generic, imo.

      • Normades says:

        I found this to be completely obnoxious and immature. And yes a lot of the reactions (especially his) seemed like bad acting.

    • Megan says:

      His fan girls are insane, but they figured out one of those videos was filmed over two years ago. So that means she was 22-23 when they started dating. That makes me side eye this even more than a 25 year old dating a 41 year old, which is still icky.

    • The Recluse says:

      I know next to nothing about this actress, but when these videos came out all sorts of pics of her showed up and man, does she look YOUNG. It kind of creeped me out.
      There is still such an imbalance and inequality at work here between his age and experience and what he’s looking for from her (parenthood) and what she’s growing into: career, adulthood….? There might be a mercenary angle at work going both ways. Who knows.
      I don’t know. If it works for them, it works. Whatever, so long as Dodger is treated well.
      Also, it wouldn’t hurt for him to have a pre-nup, because you never can tell.

      And if someone jumped out at me like that constantly, I would cease reacting the way he seems to expect. In fact, I might even lunge back at him in ways that would be startling. I can summon up a full on witch scare if need be.

    • Maria_ says:

      +1 to all.
      middle age cliche , who would have thought

  4. Naomi says:

    They’re relationship looks super cute! But I’m still side-eyeing 41 yo Chris for dating a 25yo! Coming off of our convo about what it means for Harry to have dated Meghan when she was a fully-formed woman in her mid-30s vs a 20-something who is still figuring things out and maybe doesn’t know what she wants out of relationships & what her value is worth.

  5. Julia K says:

    What I would love to see for 2023 is women not showing off their midriff/tummy/naval area. This fad needs to be over. Bikinis at the beach are fine; just not for daytime dressing.

    • Eurydice says:

      If I had a tummy I could reveal, I would.

      • PixiePaperdoll says:

        Do you just have a gaping hole instead of a midsection? Unless your body stops after your ribcage, you have a tummy you CAN reveal. Wanting to reveal it is another story.

      • Eurydice says:

        @PixiePaperDoll – yikes, it’s the weekend, save the pedantry for Monday morning.

    • Green Desert says:

      Actually, women can and SHOULD be able to wear whatever the fuck they want to wear, end of story @Julia K.

      @Eurydice- I feel the same! But I also love the body positive movement of the younger generations. I love seeing young women of all sizes wearing midriff tops, leggings and sports bras at the gym, etc. I am in awe of the confidence and hope the body positivity continues. It’s good for all of us.

      • Twin Falls says:

        @green desert 💯

      • Otaku fairy says:

        All of what Green Desert said. A lot of times the reaction to any of these positivity movements being supported is a defensive, “I just don’t think these generations or these people understand that they have more to offer than their bodies.” But you don’t have to hide something or keep it in the closet to prove or understand that it’s not all you, or other members of your group, are worth.

    • girl_ninja says:

      Or she can wear whatever she wants to wear. Bikini or belly shirts, it’s not that big of a deal.

    • tisme says:

      @Julia k…are you a dude?

      • Julia K says:

        No, but I sometimes wish I was. I would not have had to raise children, work a full-time job, do all the housework and laundry, shop, cook and clean up, make all the arrangements for Dr, dentist appointments, coordinate sports activities , send birthday and anniversary cards and put on birthday parties, pay all the bills, save and invest for retirement , call in sick when I had a sick child at home, while husband was free to spend his time doing dude things. But thanks for asking @tisme. Shaming me for being an older women who sees young fashion differently is not a good look.

      • Sammiches says:

        You couldve not had kids or married a deadbeat and you wouldnt HAVE to do those things either. Maybe then you wouldnt be such a jealous jenny and wouldnt be picking apart the clothes women chose to wear.

    • Annalise says:

      I wish tummy revealing wasn’t part of day time dressing but thats just because I’m wildly jealous of those who can pull it off.
      Note- I have a long diagnol scar on my belly that starts by my belly button and ends just below my ribs, from a surgery I had to have after having a pseudo-aneurysm. I’m not embarrassed of the scar, but I have a feeling if I wore belly baring shirts I’d be asked about it endlessly…….

  6. SarahCS says:

    My friend and her husband (in their 40’s) do this sort of thing all the time and both find it hilarious. Not to my taste but each to their own and they both have big stressful jobs so I’m happy that they have things in their life that being them joy.

    As for this relationship? I have no problem believing it’s ‘real’ but I’m giving the age/power difference a huge side eye.

    • Robert Phillips says:

      There are videos out there of Chris and his brother doing the same thing. So it must be something they do in the Evans’ housholds.

  7. Lightpurple says:

    Kaiser, agree, Mrs Harris Goes to Paris is a delightful film, one of my favorites of the past year. It’s available for streaming now, so if you haven’t seen it, make plans to do so. And Alba does a nice job opposite the great Leslie Manville and Isabelle Hubert.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Lightpurple, I loved that movie and made sure to tell my friends who also loved it.

  8. FancyPants says:

    This is something he has always done with his brother, and something about him transposing it onto his romantic partner gives me the creeps (maybe because I’m still so disappointed in him for hooking up with a 20-something, sigh).

    • Krista says:

      @fancypants… I thought the same thing – that it was weird he and his bro did it during Covid (which those videos were freaking hysterical) but then watching theirs (which are cute) I was a little put off of the transference.

      But then I thought, she’s clearly been around Chris and Scott and maybe it rubbed off on her – and also, Chris doesn’t show a ton of personal things online to peeps, so maybe since the public already had a good time with the brother scares, he felt “comfortable” enough sharing his gf scares, instead of revealing another side of himself and/or his relationship.

      • CourtneyB says:

        He and his bff Tara have done it and he and Hayley Atwell. (He scared her at his house and she repaid him on set of CA Civil War when she visited.) Hes also scared Elizabeth Olsen and ScarJo. Those he’s close to.

  9. Aly says:

    I’ve seen their family vacation pics and honestly they look liked uncle/niece posing together. Icky…not as icky as Zach Braff/Florence Pugh but still icky. But this video was definitely cute though.

    I saw a viral tweet that said them constantly jumpscaring each other makes perfect sense otherwise what does a 41 year old man and 25 year old woman have to talk about lmaooooo.

  10. Plums says:

    Yup, this video is very sweet. I want to roll my eyes a bit at him for the age difference, but then I googled her after seeing the video because I didn’t know who she was, and she’s apparently been in the business forever, seems self-possessed and successful in her own right, so it’s not as gross to me as it normally is.

  11. Harla A Brazen Hussy says:

    They look cute together and I hope for their continued happiness.

  12. Nerd says:

    I’m not really into being scared, but I like that they have a relationship that works for them with its own special quirks. Every relationship is different and it’s important to keep the playfulness in relationships in whatever way possible. I’m not really bothered with the age gap because I know that there are some really mature 25 year olds out there, one of which I was which seems like a long time ago. Their personalities seem to match. I think Chris is mature but a playful mature person and she seems to be as well. I hope their relationship goes the distance.

  13. Onomo says:

    Talkthirtytome is a popular insta account which has funny or very real hot takes, and they recently posted that they don’t think people 35+ should date someone under 25. And that the reason people do so is because they are looking for someone to manipulate and exploit.

    And oh man, There were so many men in the comments up in arms! Talking about how women get old and age poorly after 25 (lies), after that age women don’t take care of themselves, are bitter (also lies) and it just made me really stop and think.

    the crap I would put up with in my early 20s is sky high compared to the crap I would put up with in my 30s. Maybe not everyone is like that when younger, and I hope for this woman’s sake she has good and firm boundaries. Because this man seems like a mess, like DiCaprio but hides it better.

    • Erin says:

      This is exactly why I am side eyeing this relationship. I think a whole lotta men, especially celebrities think like this. How many celebrity men 40+ date women their own age or older? How many date much younger women? Can you say the same for celebrity women? Nope, and when it does happen, like with Cher, people make a huge deal about it. It’s so normal for a 40+ celebrity man to date women in their 20’s but women in their 40’s, washed up and be grateful that any man would look at you.

      • Myeh says:

        I have men check me out, approach me or without consent try to touch me (butt, bust, shoulder, arm etc). I love how their ageism works in my favor now when I tell them I’m 39 and you look 12 to me. Beat it kid! The younger guys look shocked. The horrified look on older men’s faces when I tell them hey gramps I’m almost 40 not with a ten foot pole scram!

    • Aly says:

      @Onomo If you want read more such glorious takes, then all you gotta do is check out comments under any Zach Braff/Florence Pugh article. You’ll find men closer to Flo’s age defend her 21 year old age gap with that old creep. So it’s safe to say that that creepiness is inbuilt within some guys since young age. I’ve seen guys in their 20s go after girls who are not even 20. It all boils down their own screwed mindset and nothing else.

  14. Manuela says:

    I love the bit where she curses in Portuguese (a loud and clear Foda-se, fellow portuguese will understand 😂).

  15. Chaine says:

    I’m sorry but, this video is weird. Dynamic is not at all romantic, they seem like big brother/little sister interacting.

  16. Grey says:

    Nothing killed the massive crush I had on this man faster than him dating someone 16 years younger than him.

    • SAS says:

      Yea I can tell you my crush on Daniel Ricciardo went out LIKE A LIGHT when I learned he was dating a 22 year old (although not as big an age gap as Evans).

      • Grey says:

        So disappointing, right? Like sometimes I need to live vicariously through my completely non sensical celebrity crushes.

  17. Veronica S. says:

    She looks like she could be his daughter lol. Sorry, but not sorry I guess. She’s got those girlish features that makes her look younger, and he’s starting to get those matured features.

    They’re both adults, so hey, no harm no foul, but the older I get, the less attractive it gets watching my peers date younger. It immediately makes me wonder a few things about them.

  18. Well Well says:

    Chris’ reaction to the first scare seems fake and overall the whole thing seems staged. Why is wearing a cap every time when they’re indoors throughout the video? Perhaps he doesn’t want the world to see his receding hairline and ruin his leading man status.

  19. AnneL says:

    Well, I personally would hate being jump-scared all the time but some people really get a kick out of it. I guess it works for them.

  20. detritus says:

    He looks like a man who hasn’t ever matured past his college days.

    The age difference is incredibly visible and the immaturity of the video is a lot.

    God speed, Alba. I hope he isn’t as big a POS as he looks.

  21. Angel says:

    I also think they are cute together and I wish them the best. I don’t understand why some of you are mad.

  22. girl_ninja says:

    Some of these comments are just…I haven’t had a crush on him for a minute but I don’t hate him the way some folks do.

  23. HeyKay says:

    #1. Chris Evans is pretty da*n good looking.
    #2. I wish Dodger was my dog. Dodger is better looking than Chris + mellow DOG.
    #3. This jump scare stuff should end at high school graduation time.
    #4. If I lived with a person who did this regularly, I’d toss a glass of water on them to
    #5. Once again = Team Dodger! 💕💕

  24. TeamAwesome says:

    I love her in Warrior Nun!

  25. Annalise says:

    Also I have to say I see a disturbing trend in people having super strong reactions to things that are not illegal, hurting no one, and don’t affect them

  26. SomeChick says:

    jump scares are the lowest of the low hanging fruit. and are also generally pretty mean spiritied. Ellen DG loves them! which tells me both something about her and about jump scares.

    are you working a haunted attraction? great! jump scares are your literal job description!

    are you in a romantic relationship? or a friendly one? jump scares are pretty rude, dude.

  27. Saba says:

    Chris Evans doesn’t strike me as the type of man who, if he had kids, would be comfortable with his 23 year old daughter dating a 39 year old man. Just a thought.

  28. Saba says:

    What is he doing? Trying to re-live his youth with Jessica Beal?

    Did every age appropriate woman refuse to put up with his antiquated, sexist and controlling bullshit?

    I remember when he was on Anna Faris’ podcast he exclaimed ‘ew’ at the mention of a woman having hair on her body, like her underarms or legs. He also said he didn’t like it when women messages him after an encounter or date. And he’s also mentioned he doesn’t like arguments or to fight with a partner.

    I worry that his maturity about women doesn’t match his age.

  29. Polly says:

    I wish her all the best, that’s all I’m gonna say.

    • Ocean says:

      She looks like a child in all her photos. And a guy who finds repeated jump scares funny seems very immature and intellectually and emotionally deficient.

  30. Trex says:

    Absolutely loved her in Warrior Nun! (damn you Netflix for not renewing!)

  31. Ocean says:

    She’s very cute and always found him a bit bland and very “bro” (but apparently he is utterly gorgeous in real life and just incredibly attractive and charismatic in person). However, agree the age difference is within creepy territory. Just read Jennette McCurdy’s (very sad) memoir and she dated an early-30s guy when she was 18 and she said after a couple of years the age difference got embarrassing for both of them. Can’t imagine dating a guy that much older or younger than me. Gross.
