Why Fans Think Selena Gomez and Chris Evans Might be Dating

Fashion

Selena Gomez has kept a pretty low profile this week, last being photographed out in October 1. But Chris Evans following her on Instagram was enough to spark a report in Us Weekly, The Sun, and gossip blog Nicki Swift about fans’ theories that the two may be romantically involved.

Some on Twitter claimed that the two were seen leaving the same studio and restaurant at different times in tweets posted on October 1, but there is no documented proof of that. In fact, the paparazzi photos of them in the alleged same locations are actually old shots of Gomez (one is of her leaving a studio in October 2019 and another is of her leaving pilates in November 2017) and Evans (one is of him from summer 2020 when he was with then-rumored flame Lily James in London and another is of him from October 2013), appearing separately with similar backgrounds that are actually different places. In the actual October 1, 2021 photos that paparazzi took of Gomez later that day, she is with a female friend and hugged the friend goodbye.

Evans did recently follow Gomez on Instagram, but she has not followed him back. Both are publicly single, although their private relationship statuses may or may not be different. The two have never been photographed together though nor are they in any announced projects together currently, per their IMDB pages.

Reactions on Twitter for the most part are just people rooting for them to happen:

Gomez, Us Weekly pointed out, did talk about having a crush on Evans in 2015. “I kind of have a crush on Chris Evans. Isn’t he cute? He’s very cute,” she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen then. She added it was her first time sharing her crush on him: “Oh man, he’s either going to hate me or love me.”

In June, a source spoke to Entertainment Tonight about why Gomez wasn’t looking for a serious boyfriend at the time. “Selena is very traditional, she would love to find ‘her person’ and get married and have a family one day,” the source said. “[But] she is not looking for something serious now and is in no rush to settle down as her priority continues to be her health, career and philanthropy work. She has worked so hard on her physical and mental health over the past few years, and she knows she must be the healthiest version of herself if she’s going to share her life with someone else, so she will only get involved in a serious relationship when she feels ready.”

Gomez herself spoke about being single in March and the attention that comes with dating her after her shooting PDA scenes with her on-screen Only Murders in the Building love interest Aaron Dominguez sparked rumors of them actually dating in real life.

“We had just started working together. I honestly thought, ‘No wonder guys don’t want to date me!’” Gomez told Los Angeles Times. “I think people only care because I’m young, and the older I get the less they’ll care. For now it’s a part of the job that I don’t really like. I’m actually grateful that I’m not involved with anyone right now.”
