14 Famous Women Chris Evans Was Linked to Before Wife Alba Baptista
Chris Evans has apparently tied the knot. On Sept. 10, People reported that Evans married girlfriend and fellow actor Alba Baptista in a Cape Cod ceremony. But the 42-year-old actor — who was crowned People's Sexiest Man Alive last year — has a long history of dating fellow stars that goes back to 2001, when he and Jessica Biel became a couple. The two worked with each other on films like "London" and "Cellular" while they were in a relationship but called it quits in 2006. Biel isn't the only famous woman Evans has dated.
Evans has had a handful of steady relationships and has also been romantically linked to quite a few Hollywood stars, including Emmy Rossum, Christina Ricci, and Lily James. In 2007, he started an on-again, off-again relationship with actor Minka Kelly until roughly 2015, when the two were spotted together during Labor Day weekend. Evans also dated "Emily in Paris" star Lily Collins, who he started seeing shortly after they met at Vanity Fair's 2015 Oscars party. Us Weekly reported at the time that the two were dating, but it's unclear what happened to their relationship.
It's not hard to believe that Evans is pretty popular with the ladies. Even Lizzo tried to shoot her shot at the actor by sliding into his Instagram DMs in 2021. While her messages didn't quite spark a relationship, the two did strike up a friendship, with Evans flirting back with the singer.
Here's every famous woman Evans has been linked to over the years.
Evans and Bosworth were briefly linked after meeting on the set of their drama "The Newcomers" in 2000, according to Us Weekly.
Evans met Rossum in early 2007 and was spotted making out with her at a bar called Teddy's in Hollywood in March of that year. Despite this, E! News reported that Rossum's rep insisted that the two were "just friends."
No one knows for sure how long Evans dated Ricci, but the pair attended the 2007 Met Gala together, walking the red carpet arm in arm.
Evans had a long-running on-again, off-again relationship with the "Friday Night Lights" actor. The pair started up a romance in 2007, broke up, got back together in 2012, and then broke up again in 2013. They sent the rumor mill back into overdrive when Kelly was spotted at Evans's house in photos obtained by People in October 2014, and again when they took a cute stroll together over Labor Day weekend in September 2015, per People. However, they never confirmed anything.
The "Fantastic Four" actor was seen out and about in LA with the Cuban model a few times in 2008, making people wonder if she had stolen Evans's heart.
Smart was seen leaving a London club with Evans in August 2010, Us Weekly reported, but her representative denied a romantic relationship.
In March 2011, "Twilight" actor Greene was seen "all over" Evans at Hollywood hot spot Trousdale, E! News reported. A source told the outlet, "It looked like they had a lot of sexual chemistry." However, that seems to have been the extent of their connection.
Fresh off of her split from actor Alex Pettyfer, Agron apparently hit it off with Evans at a pre-Oscars party in April 2011, per Us Weekly. The two briefly dated.
Evans has never tried to hide the fact that his childhood crush was Bullock. The two were seen getting cuddly and posing together at the Vanity Fair Oscars party in 2012. In 2014, Evans and Bullock were seen out at dinner with friends Chelsea Handler and Melissa McCarthy on numerous occasions. A source previously told E! News, "They haven't put a title on it, but they really like each other."
Evans and Collins ignited dating rumors in early 2015 after they met at an Oscars afterparty. It seemed like their relationship was the real deal when they were spotted sharing a romantic dinner at a LA Italian restaurant in March of that year, but things apparently fizzled out.
Evans sparked dating rumors with the "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again" actor in July 2020 when they were spotted hanging out in London together. While they never confirmed their relationship, they did look pretty comfortable with each other as they laughed and ate ice cream during a cute park date.
In November 2022, People reported that Evans had been dating the fellow actor "for over a year" and that it was "serious," per a source. In photos obtained by Page Six, the couple were spotted holding hands that same month. "They are in love and Chris has never been happier," People's source said. "His family and friends all adore her."
For Valentine's Day this year, Evans shared a montage of photos of him and Baptista on Instagram. He also seemingly confirmed their romance while reflecting on the previous year in a video on his Instagram Stories in January. The clip includes him and Baptista playfully scaring each other throughout the year. "A look back at 2022," he captioned it.
In September, People confirmed the pair had tied the knot.
