Chris Evans and Jenny Slate are the most genuinely friendly exes in Hollywood.
After she got refreshingly honest about their split and how their different levels of fame affected their relationship, now Chris has heaped praise about his ex and Gifted co-star, and you can tell he really, really means it.
“She’s my favourite human,” the Captain America star told People. “She’s the best.
“I’ve never, ever met someone in my life who has a mastery of the English language the way she does. She’ll give you one sentence and there’s no fat to it.
“You’re like, ‘You just chose such an unbelievable collection of words that beautifully articulate what you say.’”
Wow. And if you’re surprised and impressed that a man gushed about the way a woman speaks (that’s hot, seriously), Evans wasn’t done there.
“It’s like an art form talking with her, because the visuals associated with her expression are just so colourful. She’s so vulnerable, so honest, so interested in other people more than herself, she’s incredibly compassionate, there’s just nothing to not love about her.”
She’s so vulnerable. Mr Captain America just revealed another side of himself that will no doubt have many women interested in dating him, so he may not be single for long.
Earlier this month the Parks and Recreation and Girls actor was shockingly candid when discussing their break-up in an interview with New York Magazine.
“Chris is a very, very famous person,” she said. “For him to go to a restaurant is totally different than for me to go. I sit in my window and I say ‘Hi’ to people on the street. I have more freedom because I’m not Captain America. I’m mostly a cartoon,” she adds, referring to her frequent gigs voicing characters in children’s films like Zootopia and The Secret Life Of Pets.
Slate also admitted to struggling to date someone held up as a sex symbol, saying it was “confusing to go out with one of the most objectified people in the entire world.” She recalled how women would approach her in public and say “‘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.’ ”
Jenny and Chris win for the most classy, well-handled split in Hollywood history, and you know what? We like them both so much we hope they might give it another try.
