Jenny Slate set the bar high for talking about your ex (right before you start a press tour with him) when she described former boyfriend Chris Evans to New York magazine in a feature published last week:
Chris is truly one of the kindest people I've ever met, to the point where sometimes I would look at him and it would kind of break my heart. He's really vulnerable, and he's really straightforward. He's like primary colors. He has beautiful, big, strong emotions, and he's really sure of them. It's just wonderful to be around. His heart is probably golden-colored, if you could paint it.
Quite the statement!
Well, Chris Evans seemingly caught wind of that (or just has a lot of sweet feelings of his own!) and shared his thoughts about Slate. She is his favorite human, he toldPeople. And that 's just the beginning:
She's my favorite human. She's the best. I've never ever ever met someone in my life who has a mastery of the English language the way she does. She'll give you one sentence and there's no fat to it. You're like, "You just chose such an unbelievable collection of words that beautifully articulate what you say."
It's like an art form talking with her, because the visuals associated with her expression are just so colorful. She's so vulnerable, so honest, so interested in other people more than herself, she's incredibly compassionate, there's just nothing to not love about her.
