Get the tissues out.
Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde
Chris Evans and Jenny Slate may have called quits on their nine month relationship earlier this year, but that doesn’t mean that the former couple have any bad blood. In fact, things are SO civil between them that we reckon they could school us on break-up etiquette.
Jenny got very real about her break up in an interview with New York magazine last month, saying: ‘To be quite honest, I didn’t think I was his type… we’re an odd match.
‘Chris is truly one of the kindest people I’ve ever met, to the point where sometimes I would look at him and it would kind of break my heart. He’s really vulnerable, and he’s really straightforward… he has beautiful, big, strong emotions, and he’s really sure of them. It’s just wonderful to be around. His heart is probably golden-coloured, if you could paint it.’
If you managed to read that without sobbing into your phone screen and wondering where your own golden-hearted soulmate has been hiding your whole life, then just wait until you hear what Chris had to say about Jenny in his interview with People.
‘She’s my favourite human. She’s the best. I’ve never ever ever met someone in my life who has a mastery of the English language the way she does. She’ll give you one sentence and there’s no fat to it. You’re like, “You just chose such an unbelievable collection of words that beautifully articulate what you say,”‘ he admitted.
‘It’s like an art form talking with her, because the visuals associated with her expression are just so colourful. She’s so vulnerable, so honest, so interested in other people more than herself, she’s incredibly compassionate, there’s just nothing to not love about her.’
We’ll just amuse ourselves with this amazing Ferrero Rocher trick until we find our own Chris Evans, then.
