Elizabeth Olsen and Chris Evans went from rumored lovers to not-so-close friends anymore.

Romance is an integral part of the world of Hollywood, reel and real. A couple in love never fails to inspire, intrigue, and fascinate the general public. And if the couple breaks it off, people get too generous with the empathy they show. And the matter of budding romances is the most prone to rumors.

Even the stars of the alternate reality of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are not exempt from such a thing. Marvel stars Chris Evan and Elizabeth Olsen were also rumored to be an item. But in an interview, Olsen revealed that despite sharing a close friendship with the Captain America star, she doesn’t even hang out with him anymore.

Even as Olsen and Evans were never romantically involved, they always shared a close friendship. They both have made this clear on multiple occasions. However, their friendship fell apart with time.

“We were [close friends]. We lived very close to each other, and during that time we’d hang out a lot. I still like him but I don’t, like, hang out with him anymore.”
