CHRIS Evans and Jenny Slate made their red carpet debut together in New York City on Saturday night, confirming the pair’s rumoured romance.

The couple attended the premiere of Slate’s new animated movie, The Secret Life of Pets, with the 34-year-old actress looking stunning in a red lace Huishan Zhang dress.

The 34-year-old Avengers star kept it casual in a light polo and a navy blue baseball cap.

“I haven’t really had a large premiere before, so it’s nice to have someone who knows how it goes,” Slate told Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet. “It’s kind of like I got my dream 7th grade boyfriend. We didn’t know each other growing up, but we grew up about a half-hour away from each other. We’ve been friends for a while.”
