Insiders claim that Kelly and Evans just could not make the relationship work this time due to distance. “It didn’t make sense for them to be together right now” because of their current projects, a source told Us Weekly. Kelly is in Vancouver shooting the new series Almost Human, while Evans will be directing the film 1:30 Train in New York City.
The couple had been dating since September 2012, making their second attempt at romance a longer one. But while Kelly and Evans ended up with another breakup, the two remain friends and “still care about each other,” another Us source added.
Kelly had dated New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter for three years prior to hooking up with Evans the first time around in 2007. The Charlie’s Angels star also had a brief fling with Jake Gyllenhaal in 2012, although the romance between the pair fizzled out pretty quickly. “It was never serious,” a source told Us Weekly at the time.
Apparently, when Gyllenhaal first approached Kelly, she wasn’t really into him, and instead took That 70’s Show star Wilmer Valderrama up on his request for a date. But when things went south for them shortly after, the Brokeback Mountain actor tried his luck with Kelly once again, this time succeeding at a few dates with the 33-year-old beauty.
Meanwhile, Chris Evans’ past relationships include a romance with Glee‘s Dianna Agron — although they were never officially an item — and Christina Ricci. It was actually rumored that when Evans and Ricci hooked up, she was still dating Adam Goldberg.
The Captain America actor also had a long-term relationship with Jessica Biel back in 2004 that lasted a few years.
