In an interview on Anna Faris Unqualified podcast, Jenny confessed what it was like during their first dates. She quoted,

"I didn't know what to expect when I met Chris. I was a little scared because I kind of felt like, Well, I don't know him. He's a giant man with huge muscles and he's Captain America. How could we ever connect?

But the first night that we hung out, I was like, 'Wow, I could hang out with Chris for, like, 90 hours!!"

She stated that the attention, the paparazzi, and the spotlights with Chris Evans were too much for her to take and she finally realized that it was exactly the opposite of something that she wanted. 

The 41-year-old actress told E Online,

"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."

Moreover, she told the Huffington Post that she always knew that Chris wasn't the type of guy for her.

Recently, both Chris and Jenny spotted together ad both showed up together for a photo call for the film Gifted, last Thursday.
