That picture of Chris Evans and Jenny Slate is from months ago, but I’m using it to back up my theory that air travel probably killed their relationship. How could it not? The airport is a mouse trap designed by Satan to test how fast humans will crack under the pressure of spotty WiFi and $16 turkey sandwiches.
But the reason that’s being given for why Captain America and Mona Lisa Saperstein called it quits after almost a year of dating is the old celebrity standard excuse of being too busy. A source tells UsWeekly that their schedules kept making it impossible for them to do couple things. The source adds that it happened within the past two or three weeks. A different source tells E! News that the breakup wasn’t “dramatic.” Chris was most recently seen sans-Jenny at the Super Bowl on Sunday.
Jenny met Chris while working on the upcoming film Gifted together while she was still married to her husband of four years, Dean Fleischer-Camp. About a week before Jenny and Chris came out as a couple on Anna Faris’ podcast, it was announced that Jenny and Dean were getting a divorce. So there’s a chance someone, somewhere might be cackling with glee at this news.
Chris and Jenny officially went public with their relationship in June at the New York premiere of The Secret Life of Pets, and the same night she gushed to Entertainment Tonight that Chris is her “dream 7th grade boyfriend.” She might be regretting that now. Or maybe when she was in 7th grade, her dream was a year-long relationship with a hot nice bro that ended without drama. I’m sure every 7th grader who has ever gotten dumped after a week in the cafeteria on pizza day would agree with that.
