And though Slate tells New York magazine in a new interview that she loved Evans "so much," in the end, it was their differences that drove them apart.
"At first I was like, 'What a f---ing nightmare,'" she said.
And so when he was like, 'Game nights,' I was like, 'This is annoying.'" "Chris is truly one of the kindest people I've ever met, to the point where sometimes I would look at him and it would kind of break my heart," she told the magazine.
His heart is probably golden-colored, if you could paint it." "To be quite honest, I didn't think I was his type," she said.
"Eventually, when it was like, 'Oh, you have these feelings for me?,' I was looking around like, 'Is this a prank?' I mean, I understand why I think I'm beautiful, but if you've had a certain lifestyle and I'm a very, very different type of person — I don't want to be an experiment." Once they eventually did bite the bullet and start a relationship (only several months after Slate's divorce from Dean Fleischer-Camp), Slate still struggled to maintain a sense of normalcy, as Evans' superstardom often interrupted their time together.
