Jenny Slate And Chris Evans Reuniting For First Time Post-Breakup Will Ruin You

by Anna Menta

We all knew this would come: It's time for Jenny Slate and Chris Evans to promote their new film, "Gifted," together.

This means that even though the two co-stars recently ended their romantic relationship, they now have to spend a lot of time together being photographed and interviewed to promote their movie about a gifted child.

Sounds awkward and horrible, right?

Well, said photos started happening Tuesday night, when both Jenny and Chris attended the premiere of "Gifted" in Los Angeles.

The ex-couple reunited for the first time, and thankfully, a photographer captured the moment so we can all intrude on this special moment.

And the photos were... not awkward at all.


In fact, they were pretty much beautiful and moving and heartbreaking.


Just casually gazing into each others' eyes, you know, like friends do.




Ha ha ha, my soul is crying. I'm dead inside.


Hey, here's a fun idea, maybe you guys could get back together? Since you so obviously adore each other?


I'm just saying, happiness is an option, you guys! It really is!

This tragic breakup has gotten a lot of attention after Jenny Slate gave a particularly open and heartbreaking interview, in which she opened up about the relationship in a way few celebrities ever do.

Jenny told Vulture,

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.

And in case that's not tragically romantic enough to melt your cold, dead heart, Chris responded a week later with his own touching quote about Jenny.

Chris said in an interview with People,

She's my 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.' ...  There's just nothing to not love about her.

Cool cool cool, it's not like my heart is crying now or anything.


Jenny said in her interview with Vulture the reason the couple ended things was because they were on "different speeds," and that Chris was way more high-profile than she was.

She said,

I have more freedom because I'm not 'Captain America.' I'm mostly a cartoon. This is what I needed to do to feel normal. To be alone.

OK, fair enough, but consider this, Jenny: Not being alone and being happy instead. I'm just saying!
