There's no bad blood here. Exes Chris Evans and Jenny Slate have nothing but good things to say about each other. As the press tour for their upcoming film Gifted begins, the pair's kind words about each other are sure to make their reunion less awkward.
Just last week Slate opened up to New York magazine about falling in and out of love with Evans. In the feature, she had this to say about meeting her former boyfriend: "I remember him saying to me, ‘You’re going to be one of my closest friends.’ I was just like, ‘Man, I fucking hope this isn’t a lie, because I’m going to be devastated if this guy isn’t my friend.’”
She continued, “I don’t mind talking about him at all. He’s a lovely person… Chris is truly one of the kindest people I’ve ever met, to the point where sometimes I would look at him and it would kind of break my heart. He’s really vulnerable, and he’s really straightforward. He’s like primary colors. He has beautiful, big, strong emotions, and he’s really sure of them. It’s just wonderful to be around. His heart is probably golden-colored, if you could paint it."
So where do they stand? Slate explained, “We’re not on bad terms, but we haven’t really seen each other, spoken a lot. I think it’s probably best. I’d love to be his friend one day, but we threw down pretty hard. No regrets, though. Ever.”
Now Evans is reciprocating the sweetness, telling People that Slate is his "favorite human."
“She’s the best. I’ve never ever 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,'" Chris explains. "It’s like an art form talking with her, because the visuals associated with her expression are just so colorful."
But that's not all. He continues to rave about her. "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.”
A failed relationship turned beautiful friendship? You can't complain about that.
