Their source revealed, “They are not in a relationship, but they are definitely hanging out and are in the early getting-to-know-each-other phase. They haven’t put a title on it, but they really like each other.”
The couple has been spotted several times around the West Hollywood area enjoying dinner with friends. The duo was seen with Chelsea Handler and Melissa McCarthy at the WeHo hot spot, Craig’s, in April. They were again seen in early May with Handler at Cecconi’s in the same neighborhood.
The two stars first met at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in February 2012. The 32-year-old actor must have been pretty excited because he has been a longtime fan of The Blind Side star.
Evans told Playboy later that year, “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.'”
Evans even admitted to having a “big poster” of the Oscar-winner when he was younger. There is a 17-year difference, but age doesn’t seem to matter to the smitten stars.
Evans previously dated Minka Kelly, but they broke up in October of 2013. Bullock has kept a low profile on the dating scene since her marriage to Jesse James ended in June 2010.
