Jenny Slate Gets Candid About Dating Chris Evans: “I Didn’t Think I Was His Type”

One month after their breakup became public, Jenny Slate opened up in the March 20, 2017 issue of New York magazine about her relationship with Chris Evans.

The actors first met during a chemistry read for the movie. “I remember him saying to me, ‘You’re going to be one of my closest friends,'” she recalled. “I was just like, ‘Man, I f–king hope this isn’t a lie, because I’m going to be devastated if this guy isn’t my friend.'”

 “To be quite honest, I didn’t think I was his type. Eventually, when it was like, ‘Oh, you have these feelings for me?’, I was looking around like, ‘Is this a prank?'” Slate said. “I mean, I understand why I think I’m beautiful, but if you’ve had a certain lifestyle and I’m a very, very different type of person—I don’t want to be an experiment”

While Evans never made Slate feel that way, other people did—purposefully or not. “If you are a woman who really cares about her freedom, her rights, her sense of being an individual, it is confusing to go out with one of the most objectified people in the entire world,” she said, noting that random women would often approach her at places like CVS, “being like, ‘Oh my God, is that Chris Evans? He’s so hot!’ You’re like, ‘How dare you? That’s my boyfriend. But yes, he’s so hot.’ Of course, it didn’t help that in Hollywood, “I’m considered some sort of alternative option,” the Obvious Child star said, “even though I know I’m a majorly vibrant sexual being.”
