Chris Evans and Sandra Bullock are two thriving showbiz stars who have had their fair share of romantic rumors.  Bullock, with a decade of seniority in the industry, has been rumored to be dating the Marvel star, who had harbored a crush on the Oscar winner long before he got hitched. However, the actress soon addressed rumors about their affair after getting spotted multiple times together.

Chris Evans’s heartfelt crush on Sandra Bullock paved the way for dating rumors

Renowned actor Chris Evans is famously noted for his iconic Captain America. When the first film about the beloved character was released in 2011, the actor instantly gained widespread recognition and a massive fan following.

Gradually, he rose into a household name after subsequent Marvel movies, notably 2014’s Captain America:  The Winter Soldier. It is not surprising for a film star who is at the height of fame to swarm over rumors soon. The actor was once rumored to be dating the gorgeous actress, Sandra Bullock.

Although, the actors haven’t shared their screens together; they crossed paths at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in 2012, and it was a memorable experience for Evans, who had a strong sense of admiration for the actress, despite, she 19 years older than him. In 2012, The Captain America star recalled this in an interview with Playboy stating,


 “I used to be in love with Sandra Bullock when I was growing up. Sandy B. was my girl. I remember seeing ‘Speed’ when I was in seventh grade and just thinking, ‘That’s her. I can’t say I know her, but from what I’ve heard, she’s fantastic”.

Even though they aren’t a couple, they share a close friendship. According to the source cited by E! News in 2014, their relationship was said to be evolving as they were in the process of getting to know each other.

“They are not in a relationship, but they are definitely hanging out and are in the early getting-to-know-each-other phase”. The source also added that they haven’t pulled the title, but they like each other.

“You guys are a little behind. We’ve since married, and it started breaking apart, so we separated.” Sandra continued, “We filed for divorce, and I hope everyone can respect our privacy. But we’re going to remain friends and share responsibility for the farm animals we’ve taken on because you just can’t abandon the animals.”

It is indeed impossible to blame Chris Evans for falling for Hollywood heartthrob Sandra Bullock; after all, she won the Decade of Hotness award, proving her timeless charm and allure.
