This morning I rolled out of bed, shuffled to my computer, opened it up, directed my web browser to Us Weekly’s home page, and yelped at its latest headline. Jenny Slate, the actress/comedian/author whom you might know from any number of things (including her work co-creating/providing a voice for Marcel the Shell), is now dating Captain America himself, Chris Evans.
Slate and her husband of three years, Dean Fleischer-Camp, announced their split last week, and “because one of us really wants to date Chris Evans” was the last reason I expected for their divorce.
Reports Us Weekly:
The actress/comedian and the Captain America: Civil War actor, both 34, star together in the upcoming drama Gifted. A source tells Us that the pair went on a double date with Evans’ brother, Scott Evans, at Hollywood eatery Magnolia back in March.
Both Evans and Slate were guests on Anna Faris’s podcast last week. During their chat, Slate said:
“I didn’t know what to expect when I met Chris, I was a little scared because I kind of felt like, ‘Well, I don’t know him. He’s a giant man with huge muscles and he’s Captain America. How could we ever connect?’ [But the] first night that we hung out I was like, ‘Wow, I could hang out with Chris for like 90 hours.’”
Here’s a less gasp-worthy piece of news. Bristol Palin agreed to change the last name of her four-month-old baby from Palin to Meyer, the last name of her ex-fiancé, Dakota.
...Palin and Meyer’s daughter’s name is listed as Sailor Grace Palin on her birth certificate, and will now be legally changed to Sailor Grace Palin Meyer. Meyer is also now listed on the baby’s birth certificate.
So, to me, it looks like Palin originally decided not to give her child Meyer’s name out of spite, but has since decided to relax. Look at these two, acting all civil for the sake of their kid.
Meanwhile, here’s an update on Hollywood’s worst couple.
