Blockbuster actors Chris Evans and Sandra Bullock are dating and really like each other, says E! online. Apparently Captain America and the astronaut from Gravity have a strong connection that dinner with Chelsea Handler — which the two reportedly had — can’t even break. Of course, time with Chelsea Handler in any capacity would bring people closer together, because sometimes traumatic events are better for meeting new people than an OkCupid account.
So far the two aren’t an official anything — boyfriend, girlfriend, or ballroom dancing partners — but it does seem like they really like each other. According to E! research Captain America always had a childhood crush on Sandra Bullock since her best movie of all time, Speed. Not only did he have a big poster of her in his room, but he told Playboy back in 2012:
“I used to be in love with Sandra Bullock when I was growing up. Sandy B. was my girl. I remember seeing Speed when I was in seventh grade and just thinking, ‘That’s her.’ “
Leading me to believe that in seventh grade Chris Evans decided to become an actor, spent years struggling for that first big film role, got invitations to Hollywood events, and made sure to accidentally run into Sandra Bullock at said Hollywood events — all in an effort to date her because she’s the one.
Fine, I might’ve just read into that. But how ambitiously romantic does that sound? It doesn’t matter anyway, they’re not “officially” anything, yet.
