Jenny Slate Is Engaged, But Not to Captain America

Jenny Slate is engaged, which is great news for her and her well-wishers, but bad news for those of us still holding out hope that she and Captain America can work it out. I guess that flame is dead and buried, because now she is marrying art curator Ben Shattuck.


“He took me to France and made a picnic and made me feel happy and free and then he asked me to marry him and i screamed YES. I love you @benshattuck_art, you are the kindest and brightest and I am so grateful and here we go and keep going,” Slate wrote on Instagram.

Slate’s relationship with Captain “Chris Evans” America was officially over as of March 2018, to my great dismay. Slate and Shattuck, meanwhile, were first seen together at Sundance earlier this year. He seems to understand that Slate’s soul is a nice teal color, which is one of the better compliments you can give someone, I think.

Previously, Slate was married to Dean Fleischer-Camp. They separated in 2016 after four years.



i don’t understand the “ship” mentality.

does anyone else think it is kind of weird for us to put our own feelings and ideas onto the relationships of others.

If someone reported that Slate and Evans broke up in March of 18, i would bet they were done weeks if not months before that.. moved on, boned other people, wishing each other the best...

and the idea that people were holding out hope that two people none of us really know are going to get back together, meanwhile she is in a relationship with some art dude livin her life.. well. it all just seems sad. like i am bored with my own life, I really hope Chris Evans and Jenny Slate get back together.. they seem cute!

happy for her though, he looks (seems) nice and weird. so just like her. very glad she found her lobster.. moving on to thinking about more interesting things.

mazel tov!
