It looks like Captain America may be off the market.
Us Weekly is reporting that Chris Evans is officially dating actress Lily Collins. The tabloid says the two met at a post-Oscars party, and though they're taking it slow, friends and family can see they're both smitten.
As the sole single Avenger, Chris is the subject of a lot of dating rumors. It was reported that Evans was dating Sandra Bullock last year, but if there was ever anything between them, it's over now.
Most of what we hear about Evans' love life turns out to be BS, but several sources say his new relationship is the real deal.
Besides, no offense to Lily Collins, but we feel like if Us wanted to invent a relationship for Chris, they'd choose someone a bit more high-profile, ya know?
Of course, Ms. Collins is no slouch in the romance rumor department, herself. Lily's been linked to Zac Efron, Taylor Lautner, Jamie Campbell Bower, and a handful of other leading men.
Perhaps that's why the sources who spoke to the tabloids were sure to emphasize that Chris and Lily aren't rushing right into a serious relationship:
"It's just the beginning stages," says one insider. "But they're having a lot of fun."
We're sure they are.
