Gather round, the time has come for a deep dive into Chris Evans’s dating history. Chris—who is perhaps best known for being Captain America but is also Captain of Looking Amazing in a Cable-Knit Sweater—has been bachelor-ing his way around Hollywood for a minute now. But! Turns out, he’s been in a ton of public relationships that you probably forgot about, including with his number one celebrity crush. Though now is probably a good time to mention that Chris told Shondaland that he is "laser focused" on finding a partner. Direct quote:

"[I'm] laser-focused on finding a partner, you know, someone that you want to live—look, I love what I do, it's great, I pour all of myself into it, but—even this industry is full of pockets of doubt, hesitation, and recalibration. In terms of really trying to find something that you really pour all of yourself into, maybe it's about trying to find someone that you're looking to spend your life with. So maybe that."

Um, on that pure note, let’s get into it!

Alba Baptista: October 2021 to Present

Rumors about Chris and Alba started back in 2021 after she followed him and a buncha his family on Insta. But speculation went to the next level on Halloween 2022, when Chris posted these pumpkins:

Which fans realized were the same pumpkins that Alba's mother Elsa Baptista used as her profile pic earlier in the month:

People then confirmed the rumors, with a source saying Chris and Alba had been dating "for over a year and it's serious. They are in love and Chris has never been happier. His family and friends all adore her."

Selena Gomez: October 2021 (Literally Just a Rumor)

Back in the fall, the internet was swarming with tales of Chris and Selena being a whole *thing*. Turns out, they were just fanfic, but there was some "evidence" to discuss. For one, Chris started following Selena on Instagram, which created a lot of buzz given the fact that she went on record in 2015 saying that she’s into him. As in, she told Andy Cohen, “I kind of have a crush on Chris Evans. Isn’t he cute? He’s very cute.” On top of that, fans briefly thought her reflection was spotted in Chris' piano (lol). AND on top of that she popped up on Taylor Swift's TikTok wearing something that certainly looks a lot like Chris's Knives Out sweater:

Lizzo: Circa April 2021 (Maybe)

This one is also probably fanfic, but Lizzo and Chris have gotten flirty on social media. It all started after Lizzo revealed on TikTok that she slid into Chris’s Insta DMs:

AND THEN HE FOLLOWED HER:

Anyway, Lizzo is currently in a relationship, but this was a fun time.

Lily James: 2020

Chris and Lily were spotted spending time together in summer 2020, but neither of them commented on the relationship. In fact, Lily refused to confirm whether or not they’d even dated during an interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK, which noted she “won’t discuss whether or not she is dating the Captain America star Chris Evans.”

Jenny Slate: 2016 and 2017

These two were everyone’s favorite couple for several moments there, but sadly they didn’t last. Chris and Jenny met on the set of their movie Gifted in 2016, and Jenny told Entertainment Tonight, “It’s kind of like I got my dream seventh grade boyfriend. We didn’t know each other growing up, but we grew up about a half hour away from each other. We’ve been friends for a while.” They ended up breaking up in February 2017 but were seen together in October of that year and later even flirted for the world to see on Twitter:

Sadly, they ended up splitting again, with Jenny explaining in a Vulture interview, “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.” She added, “This is what I needed to do to feel normal. To be alone.”

Lily Collins: 2015

They were spotted out to dinner literally once, so not sure if this truly counts as DATING, but ya know.

Sandra Bullock: 2014

Sandra just happened to be Chris’s celeb crush, and he ended up dating her a few years after they met at a Vanity Fair Oscar party. “I used to be in love with Sandra Bullock when I was growing up. Sandy B. was my girl,” he told Playboy. “I remember seeing Speed when I was in seventh grade and just thinking, That’s her.”

Obviously, these two didn’t last, and a source told E! News at the time, “They are not in a relationship, but they are definitely hanging out and are in the early getting-to-know-each-other phase. They haven’t put a title on it, but they really like each other.”

Minka Kelly: 2012 to 2014 (on and off!)

Chris and Minka dated on and off throughout the mid-aughts but clearly weren’t meant to be. In 2013, a source told Us Weekly, “It didn’t make sense for them to be together right now” but they “still care about each other.”

Jana Kramer: Circa 2012 (maybe?)

Jana Kramer recently revealed that she "went on a few dates" with Chris over a decade ago (so...gonna guess sometime around 2012?), but that the relationship ended due to asparagus pee.

"He wasn't Captain America, but he was like the heartthrob, cutie...I can't remember how many dates it was. I just remember the last date," she said somewhat ominously during her Whine Down with Jana Kramer podcast (via E! News), adding that "The last interaction that I remember is him going into the bathroom after I just went with asparagus pee. We didn't hook up that night. He stayed up late with his friends and then [in] the morning I did the asparagus walk of shame out of his house. I never heard from him again."

Dianna Agron: 2011

Apparently, Dianna and Chris dated briefly after hitting it off at L.A.’s Soho House, lol, but their relationship wasn’t exactly covered by the mid-aughts internet (rude).

Christina Ricci: 2007

These two dated for only a few months, which was just enough time to walk the Met Gala red carpet together!

Jessica Biel: 2001 to 2006

I know, right? Whomst knew! But yeah, Chris and Jessica started dating in 2001 and continued dating alllll the way to 2006. Jessica even told Cosmopolitan (hi) in 2005 that they’d discussed marriage, saying, “We always talk about it. We both want to be married, and we both want to have children. But we’re not engaged, so the rumors are false…so far.”

She also revealed that Chris did a ton of sweet stuff for her, like, “When I turned 21, I actually awoke to find my bed covered in rose petals. In the middle of the night, he had pulled apart at least 24 roses in all different colors and sprinkled the petals everywhere. He’s definitely a keeper.”

Kate Bosworth: 2000

Kate and Chris are rumored to have dated after meeting on the set of their movie The Newcomers back in 2000. Look at how adorable they were!

Good times, but before we go….
