Jenny Slate: ‘Chris Evans is a dream boyfriend’
Jenny Slate says Chris Evans is a "dream boyfriend".
The ‘Gifted’ co-stars had been friends for some time but recently started dating after Jenny split from Dean Fleischer-Camp, her husband of four years and Jenny, 34, could not be happier.
She told Entertainment Tonight: "It’s kind of like I got my dream seventh grade boyfriend.
"We didn’t know each other growing up, but we grew up about half an hour away from each other. We’ve been friends for a while, and, yeah…"
Chris, 35, accompanied his new girlfriend to the premiere of her movie, ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ in New York on Saturday (06.25.15) and they proved how serious their relationship is already, by making it a family affair.
The couple were joined by Jenny’s sister Abby and her nieces and nephews, along with Chris’s mother, sister and two of his sister’s children.
Speaking about having Chris along to support her at the premiere, Jenny said: "I haven’t really had a large premiere before, so it’s nice to have someone who knows how it goes."
Before they started dating the duo appeared on close pal Anna Faris’ podcast, ‘Anna Faris Is Unqualified’, where Chris spoke about his ideal woman.
Asked by Anna if he’d prefer a woman to send him a picture of her boobs, bottom or face, he replied: "I’m way, way, way more of an ass man, clearly more of an ass man. Just so everyone knows. I like butts. [So] I guess a butt pic."
And he admitted he’s easily put off if the woman bombards him with text messages immediately after they’ve met.
He said: "I would probably ask for her number at first. But let’s say we met at 10pm, and I left the bar at 11 and I sent her a text at 11:30 saying, ‘Hey, it was great to meet you.’ And she responds, ‘Yeah, you too.’ And at 3 a.m. there’s another text [from her], right away it’s a little bit of a bummer."
