Captain America and his new lady have arrived!
Chris Evans, 35, and Jenny Slate, 34, made their red carpet (technically, green carpet) debut as a couple Saturday at the premiere of the new animated film The Secret Life of Pets in New York. The actress and former SNL star, recently seen on HBO's Girls, provides the voice of Gidget, a white Pomeranian.
At the premiere, Slate wore a red lace off-the-shoulder Huishan Zhang dress while Evans sported a light polo shirt and dark pants. The two posed while standing close together, with her hand resting on his chest.
"The Secret Life of Pets was fantastic! @jennyslate was a personal favorite," Evans tweeted.
He also said her co-star, Kevin Hart, was "hilarious too."

E! News learned in May that the two actors, who star together in the film Gifted, are dating, soon after Slate and Dean Fleischer-Camp broke up after three and half years of marriage.
She ad Evans met in October 2015 on the set of director Marc Webb's drama Gifted. Earlier this year, they went on a double date with his brother, Scott Evans. The couple also both took part in a joint interview on Anna Faris' podcast and also hung out with her and her husband, actor Chris Pratt.
"I didn't know what to expect when I met Chris," Slate said about Evans on the program. "I was a little scared because I kind of felt like, Well, I don't know him. He's a giant man with huge muscles and he's Captain America. How could we ever connect?...[But] the first night that we hung out, I was like, 'Wow, I could hang out with Chris for, like, 90 hours."
Evans said that while he had only known the actress for a few months, the two were "like the same animal."
