Chris Evans admits he’s ‘laser focused’ on settling down


Chris Evans made some rare comments about his love life this weekend while promoting his new movie The gray man. Evans spoke with Shondaland journalist Mariel Turner, who asked if he was as “laser focused” on anything in his real life as his character in the film. Without much persuasion, Evans launched into some thoughts about finding a long-term romantic partner.

“I’ll give you a good answer,” Evans said. “The answer would be that, perhaps, [I’m] laser-focused on finding a partner, you know, someone you want to live with. I mean, listen – I love what I do. It’s good; I put my whole being into it. But in terms of – even this industry is full of pockets of doubt and hesitation and recalibration in terms of really trying to find someone you can really dedicate yourself to. Maybe it’s trying to find someone you’re looking to spend your life with. Yeah, so maybe that’s it.”

Evans has a long and starry dating history that includes Jessica Biel, Minka Kelly and others. His most recent serious relationship that was public knowledge was with comedian Jenny Slate, which lasted from 2017 to 2018. Although they broke up, the two spoke very well in the press afterward. Slate told reporters from Vulture that she was convinced that Evans would make someone else very happy.

“He’s really vulnerable and he’s really direct. He’s like the primary colors. He’s got nice, big, strong emotions, and he’s really sure about that,” she said at the time. “It’s just wonderful to be here. His heart is probably golden if you could paint it.”

A source close to Evans said We Weekly that Evans intended to “be more private with his love life” after that, and so far the actor seems to be sticking to that strategy. Although there have been many rumors that he is dating Portuguese actress Alba Baptista, the actor has never commented on them.

Evans’ new comments this week also didn’t appear to confirm his alleged relationship with Baptista. The 41-year-old spoke with USA today about his hunt for romantic stability in 2017. He said: “I really want kids. I really want a family. But you can’t put the cart before the horse. The family only works if it’s built about extending the love you feel for a person.If all of a sudden you want the child more than you want the relationship, you may be on shaky ground.

Evans’ new comments over the weekend didn’t shed much light on his current romantic situation and arguably disproved his alleged relationship with Baptista. As far as fans on social media go, he remains one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors.
