It’s official! Chris Evans and Jenny Slate took their relationship public and made their red carpet debut at the premiere of The Secret Life of Pets in New York City on Saturday, June 25.
The couple posed arm-in-arm at the premiere of her new animated film at NYC’s Lincoln Center, w Slate, 34, looked stunning in a red lace Huishan Zhang dress.
“I haven’t really had a large premiere before, so it’s nice to have someone who knows how it goes,” Slate told Entertainment Tonight on Saturday afternoon of attending the premiere with the Avengers star.
“It’s kind of like I got my dream 7th grade boyfriend. We didn’t know each other growing up, but we grew up about a half hour away from each other. We’ve been friends for a while.”
Us Weekly exclusively revealed that the couple started dating shortly after the Obvious Child actress split from her husband of three years, Dean Fleischer-Camp, in May. Slate and Evans will star together in the upcoming drama Gifted.
“I didn’t know what to expect when I met Chris,” she explained.
Slate and film editor Fleischer-Camp decided to end their marriage in early May. “It wasn’t a bad breakup,” a source told Us at the time, noting that the couple simply grew apart.
