Labor Day is not necessarily a romantic holiday but that may not be the case here. Minka Kelly and Chris Evans fueled speculation about a rekindling of their relationship after they were photographed spending some quality time together over Labor Day weekend.
The Friday Night Lights actress, 35, and Captain America superhero, 34, stepped out together for a casual stroll with their dogs in L.A.’s West Hollywood. The action star dressed in jeans and a bicep-baring T-shirt, while Kelly dressed in some athleisure-wear and flip-flops, according to US Weekly. At one point, the duo exchanged a spirited high-five and laughed as they walked closely beside each other with their pets.
Although Evans is nearing the end of his Marvel movie contract with the remaining two films being invested towards the Avengers: Infinity War films. The actor, 34, seemed eager to extend his stay as Captain America in a recent interview with Collider.
“Listen, if Marvel wants me, they got me,” he said. “I’ve never had such a relationship where you have such — I mean look at my resume, I’m used to being on set being like, ‘Ah is this movie gonna be terrible?’ Marvel just can’t stop making great movies, they do it in their sleep. It’s wonderful directors and producers and actors and scripts, and it’s like a playground as an actor.”
Last year, this commitment seemed uncertain. He told Variety that he wanted to move behind the camera more, but finding the time was difficult. “I can’t see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I’m contractually obligated to do,” he said. “I’ve known for a while I wanted to direct, but [time] never really opens up.”
Evans has talked about giving up acting so that he can completely focus on being a director, and that all starts with the aforementioned Before We Go, which is premiering this week at TIFF, but doesn’t yet have a release date. He has also completed work on the romantic comedy A Many Splintered Thing from up-and-coming filmmaker Justin Reardon, according to CinemaBlend.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
