Sandra Bullock has been making headlines again, and this time it’s not for her blockbuster movies. The Hollywood A-lister has been addressing rumors about her alleged relationship with the hunky Captain America actor Chris Evans.
Meanwhile, the Marvel alum has been in the news for his love life with every other woman, including Bullock. Could there be more to the dating rumors?
Chris Evans’ Dating Life
Chris Evans has had a colorful dating life with ups and downs. Fans have been interested in his love life since his high-profile relationship with Jessica Biel, which lasted from 2001 to 2006. Biel had expressed hope for a future with Evans but eventually married Justin Timberlake in 2012.

After his split with Biel, Evans had brief relationships with actresses Minka Kelly and Dianna Agron. He was also linked to Sandra Bullock after her divorce in 2010. His most significant relationship since then was with Jenny Slate, whom he co-starred with in Gifted.
They dated on and off from 2016 to 2018, with Slate describing Evans as “wonderful to be around.” In November 2022, it was confirmed that Evans, 41, was dating Portuguese actress Alba Baptista, 25. According to a source close to the couple, they have been together for over a year, with Evans’ family and friends adoring Baptista.
Baptista first gained attention for her role in Netflix’s Warrior Nun. She has since starred in several Portuguese series and films, including the movie Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris. The couple first sparked romance rumors in January 2022, but it is believed that they had been together longer.
So, where does Sandra Bullock fit in Chris Evans’ dating timeline since the first rumor of them being together made the rounds in 2010?

Sandra Bullock Puts The Record Straight
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Sandra Bullock, who was 49 at the time, joked about her supposed romance with the then 32-year-old heartthrob. The actress stated that the rumor mill was a little behind the times in her usual witty and sarcastic style. Bullock hilariously claimed that she and Evans had already tied the knot, but things had gone south, and they were now going through a messy divorce.
“You guys are a little behind. We’ve since married and it started breaking apart, so we separated. We filed for divorce, and I hope everyone can respect our privacy. But we’re going to remain friends and share responsibility of the farm animals we’ve taken on, because you just can’t abandon the animals.”
While her remarks may have been tongue-in-cheek, fans couldn’t help but wonder if there was a grain of truth in her comments. After all, the two stars were seen dining with friends in West Hollywood in 2014, which sparked dating rumors.

But despite the rumor, it’s clear that Sandra Bullock and Chris Evans share a great bond. The Avengers actor has been open about his childhood crush on the Oscar-winning actress, revealing in a 2012 interview with Details that he kept a poster of her in his bedroom.
And it’s not hard to see why he’s been smitten with Bullock all these years, especially after she won awards like the Decade of Hotness award and the Actress Defying Age and Ageism award, proving that she’s still got it.
