Unlike his squeaky-clean alter ego Captain America, Actor Chris Evans isn’t afraid to have a little fun. Still searching for his perfect match, Chris Evans has been through his share of ups and downs in his dating life but is holding out hope that he will find out the ‘One’ someday soon.
On the occasion of his 40th birthday let’s dig out his past relationships from his private life. Chris Evans dating history is filled with fellow A list actors and while some of those relationships lasted for years, other reported romances fizzled out after a few weeks.
And since he’s pretty coy about his private life, some of his rumored flames over the years might surprise you.
1 Jessica Biel ( 2001-2006)
Chris Evans’s first major public relationship was with Jessica Biel who he reportedly dated back in 2001. The two made several red carpet appearances together and during an interview, Biel even talked about the possibility of marriage in 2005. Though in June 2006, the reports of the couple’s breakup went public, though it’s still unclear when or why the couple split.
2. Minka Kelly ( 2007, 2012-2013 and 2015)
Chris Evans and her fellow actress Minka Kelly has a bit of complicated history together. After dating Biel, Evans reportedly dated Kelly in 2007, though they both reportedly split that same year. Five years later, the exes reportedly started dating again in 2012 to split for the second time in 2013. The reason for their breakup was due to the timing. Evans and Kelly sparked reconciliation rumours once again in 2015 when they were spotted together over Labour Day weekend but the rumour mill has been quiet ever since.
3. Sandra Bullock (2014)
Unlikely duo Chris Evans and Sandra Bullock first met at the Vanity Fair 2012 Oscar Party, and a few months later Evans confessed to having a crush on Bullock when he was younger. “I used to be in love with Sandra Bullock when I was growing up,” Chris told Playboy. “Sandy B was my girl. I remember seeing Speed when I was in seventh grade and just thinking, “That’s her.” In 2014, there were rumours that Evans has finally got his dream girl. But it’s didn’t last long and we are still unclear about why they split.
4. Jenny Slate (2016-2018)
After working together on 2016’s Gifted, the costars turned their on-screen chemistry into a full-fledged relationship. Less than a year later we came to know that the pair had paused their relationship due to conflicting schedules. Although they eventually reunited in November 2017 and were the internet’s cutest couple before ending things for good in March 2018.
5. Lily James (2020)
In July 2020, Evans was romantically linked to actor Lily James after they reportedly spotted out and about in London. Little less has been heard about the couple since then so only time will tell whether these two are still in the relationship or they have split up.
Moreover, Evans has been linked with other celebrities too including Dianna Agron, Kate Bosworth, and Emmy Rossum but Evans has refrained from confirming most of his rumoured relationships.
