Jenny Slate: Chris Evans’ Ex-Girlfriend’s Net Worth & Why You Should Know Her Name
Actor Chris Evans, aka Captain America, has become a household name since he began his run in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite this, he has worked to keep his personal life as private as possible. Though he seems to be single at the moment, we do know a few of Evans’ notable ex-girlfriends, including actress Jenny Slate. If you’re not familiar with her name, here’s what you should know her from, along with her net worth and some details about her relationship with Evans.
Slate and Evans dated on and off for a couple of years
Evans and Slate met on the set of their 2017 film Gifted. They were first spotted together in May 2016, around the time that Slate announced her separation from her husband of three years, Dean Fleischer-Camp. Slate and Evans reportedly separated in February 2017, prior to Gifted’s opening.
Months later, in late 2017, rumors began to circulate that they were back together. They spent the holidays together, and it seemed like things were going very well this time around. However, by March 2018, Slate and Evans had broken up once again.
Here’s why you know her name
Slate herself is an accomplished actress with a very recognizable voice. You may know her from Marcel the Shell, a stop-motion short film which quickly gained popularity in 2010. She also voices Tammy on Bob’s Burgers, Missy on Big Mouth, and Gidget in The Secret Life of Pets movies. But her voice roles are just the beginning.
Slate got her start as a Saturday Night Cast member for one season. She had recurring roles on shows like House of Lies and Married. Many might recognize Slate as Mona-Lisa, Jean-Ralphio Saperstein’s equally obnoxious sister from Parks and Recreation. And her big-screen career has featured notable indie films like Obvious Child, Joshy, and Landline. Oh, and she’s also entered into the comic book movie playing field, with a role in the Sony Marvel blockbuster Venom.
This is what she and Evans have said about one another
A lot of fans were rooting for Slate and Evans, two extremely well-liked and down-to-Earth actors from Massachusetts. And though they aren’t together right now, they’ve only had wonderful things to say about one another in the past.
After their first breakup, Slate called Evans, “a lovely person,” saying they were friends from the moment they met during auditions for Gifted. “I first really liked Chris as a person because he is so unpretentious…He’s really vulnerable, and he’s really straightforward.” So what lead to their breakup? Slate emphasized their differences, both in personality and in lifestyles due to fame, as well as the fact that things began when she was just recently separated.
Slate hasn’t said much since their second breakup, and though Evans doesn’t mention her by name in his recent profile in The Hollywood Reporter, he does talk about a book of feminist essays that she encouraged him to read at one time. He also talked about how he is “a really autonomous guy,” perhaps suggesting his reasons for being single at this time.
Slate’s net worth
Slate has been in several projects of note, and it’s reflected in her earnings. According to Celebrity Net Worth, she is estimated to be worth around $5 million. With three films on the way in 2019 alone, one of which she was a producer on, there’s no doubt that Slate will continue to increase her earnings in the years to come.
