She also admitted that the upcoming movie "Gifted" co-actors were quite an opposite pair and it was funny how they got along this far.

Also, she further added that she still thinks that Chris is one of the brilliant actors in the industry and are still in good terms.

The 34-year-old actress further told,

"Chris is a very, very famous person. For him to go to a restaurant is totally different than for me to go. I sit in my window and I say ‘Hi’ to people on the street. I have more freedom because I’m not Captain America. I’m mostly a cartoon."

Not only this, she was also dealing with a divorce from Dean Fleischer-Camp, a film editor and her husband of nearly four years, while she was dating Evans.

So, the relationship finally ended with mutual understanding and now both has pretty much moved on. Before continuing this, let's first jump back to find out how they first met and their love story.

An unexpected love story of Chris and Jenny

Between all the odds and all the impossibilities, Chris and Jenny started off really well, not as lovers but as best friends.

They had their first encounter in a casual party at a friend's house. They started talking and both felt strong friendship vibes after that.

As both were working together for their upcoming movie, "Gifted" (2017), they got quite a lot of time to spend and get to know each other.

The actress revealed in an interview with HuffingtonPost stating that she used to get pretty much scared by Evans as she thought he wasn't the type of the guy for her.

She quoted:

At first, I was like, ‘What a f—– nightmare,’” the actress recalled. “Chris is a different speed than me — I think he really did just jump out of a plane for an interview. And so when he was like, ‘Game nights,’ I was like, ‘This is annoying. This guy’s like a sports guy. He’s the kid that likes P.E.

To be quite honest, I didn’t think I was his type."

Despite everything, both started seeing each other and Jenny officially announced that she and her best friend are actually dating back in June 2016.

While talking with ETOnline, the 34-year-old beauty gushed about how Chris is really supportive to her then released movie, The Secret Life of Pets. 

Later that night, Chris too tweeted a post showing much support and love for his leading lady.

The pair seemed really happy together and sparked their romance pretty well after that.
